(Update, Dec. 12: Welcome, ShoutWire-ites! I’m glad y’all liked this entry, but please don’t leave a comment if you’re retarded or can’t recognize sarcasm without a blinking 72-point smiley.)
The Astronomical Observatory of Padova gives us this picture of the large-scale structure of the universe:
Each point is a galaxy. Notice how they’re arranged in two cones that meet at a single point.
And what’s at that point? Us.
If that’s not proof that we’re at the center of the universe, the apex of God’s creation, I don’t know what is.
(Okay, I just wanted to get this idea out there before the fundies do, so I can claim prior art if they pick it up and run with it. In case anyone hadn’t figured it out, the reason the distribution looks the way it does is that we’re inside the disk of the Milky Way, and it’s hard to see through the gas and dust and schmutz to see what’s out there. It’s a lot easier to look perpendicular to the disk of our galaxy.)
