Mediocrity principle

Used to have a maths teacher in school who wrote me off 15 years ago.  I guess he would have the same opinion today. Most people are like that. They want the world to change to their opinion.

If I meet this gentleman  again, would like to tell him:

The Earth is a relatively ordinary planet orbiting a relatively ordinary star in a relatively ordinary galaxy which is one of countless others in a giant universe, possibly within an infinite multiverse

Life is organic chemistry thanks to the double-helix structure of DNA

There is a limit to human rationality

Humans share about 98% of their DNA with chimpanzees

Chimpanzees have actually undergone more genetic change than humans

All humans have a common ancestor with a chimpanzee about 6,000,000 years ago and that ought to be a monkey too!
