On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, Jay Richards discusses the Copernican principle and pre-Copernican cosmology. We’ve just passed the 15th anniversary of The Privileged Planet, so it’s appropriate to revisit one of the questions Richards and Gonzalez set out to answer in their book: Is the earth really an insignificant speck in an impersonal universe? Do we really exist for no reason?
