Nicolaus Copernicus was a douche.

Phrases like, “Those things which I am saying now may be obscure, yet they will be made clearer in their proper place,” and, “To know that we know what we know, and to know that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge,” make me think that the Polish Renaissance mathematician and astronomer, was just a pretentious egocentric narcissist who realized he wasn’t the center of the universe.

He was so absorbed by the thought of him not being in the middle of it all that he came up with the comprehensive heliocentric model which places the Sun, rather than the Earth, at the center of the universe, therefore, removing everybody else from being the center of the universe.

Fucking douche.
