I submit that the dominantly ignorant/pathological mindset of humanity today is far more pre-Galilean than in Galileo's time. (That's the dominant mindset; not the one of the whole of the human race). In the face of all the knowledge (including the undefined variety) we have now compared to the late 16th and early 17th centuries, the ignorance/denial of today is infinitely more staggering than in those days. The disgusting truth is the cult mentality/mentalities is/are far stronger now than ever. Again the vast majority of cultists today aren't recognized as such. They include the secular-political as much as the religious.
The problem, or to the extent there's only one, is the (deludedly) anthropocentric model of the universe. It's still very much alive and kicking; and is no longer the province of (particularly Western/Abrahamic) religion only. It's in the failure of the religious and the secular to recognize everything as only science, not the "magic" or "miracles" cowering, that's primarily responsible for making this "civilization" FUBAR.
Grass is green (with enough water and photosynthesis). That's a rock-solid fact. And essentially (or at least effectively), anything less scientifically solid than that fact is a belief. (Yeah, I know I'm stuck among too many people whose beliefs and idolatry/idolization are everything. Still I do what I can and will). The only valid or legitimate belief I can think of is the Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you). And it's more a rule than belief anyway; though technically a belief. In order for a mere belief to be truly valid/viable, there has to be an extraordinary, highly exceptional component of common sense and/or morality to it; not just anything resembling an ordinary or average amount.
It's inconsistent and hypocritical in the most extreme to at once be interested in UFOs and the (apparent) nonhuman presence among us and be at all supportive of the existence of the National Security state or (utter, ubertotalitarian) rule by official secrecy. Such rule is the same (or definitely close enough) mentality as the Inquisition of Galileo's time.
