We are not the center of the universe. We ARE the center of OUR Observable Universe which is everything that has had time for it's light(radiation) to reach us to observe. The Andromeda Galaxy is also at the center of it's own observable universe.
Some programs I've watched recently that explain the history of what science has discovered and where it has led. While none of these purely refute the existence of a Creator, they do explain things we now understand that were previously only explained as the work of God.
BBC The Secret Life of Chaos
-My favorite recent watch, discussing how organization can come from seeming randomness, and how something seemingly organized can still give unpredictable results. The very end makes a point to say that if a Creator made our universe, it's possible they set initial conditions and now is just watching it happen, as in a creator has had no active role in what happens now. Really a great program with visually stunning examples of what at a glance is infinity complex but governed by simple mathematical, biological rules.
BBC How Big is the Universe
BBC How Small is the Universe
BBC Everything and Nothing
(2 part series)
-Histories and current states of our ability to observe the Universe.
Through The Worm Hole: Did We Create God?
-The main take away from this is that humans have a natural tendency to impose the will of God onto things for which we have yet to find an answer.
Stephen Hawking's Grand Design: Did God Create the Universe?
- I really can't remember much of what is said, sooo...
