Humanity has in the course of time had to endure from the hands of science two
great outrages upon its naive self-love. The first was when it realized that
our earth was not the center of the universe, but only a speck in
a world-system
of a magnitude hardly conceivable... The second was when biological research
robbed man of his particular privilege of having been specially created, and
relegated him to a descent from the animal world.
-- Sigmund Freud
