Are we the center of the Universe?

From an Edge Talk with Lawrence Krauss
. When you look at [the cosmic microwave background] map, you … see that the structure that is observed, is in fact, in a weird way, correlated with the plane of the earth around the sun. Is this Copernicus coming back to haunt us? That's crazy. We're looking out at the whole universe. There's no way there should be a correlation of structure with our motion of the earth around the sun … That would say we are truly the center of the universe.

So the game becomes that of explaining-away the hardest empirical evidence that exists in support of anthropic specialness, rather than to look for some good physical reason why the implication for specialness might be true.

A real bunch of scienitsts these guys are... ... ... ... ... NOT!!!
