We got used to it.

"It takes time for an acorn to turn into an oak; but the oak is already implied in the acorn."

I hope you enjoy this absolutely lovely video as much as I did this evening.

"For example, people used to believe ... people who lived in the antiquities would fall off. And that was scary. But then when somebody sailed round the world, and we all got used to it, and we travel around in jet planes and everything... We have no problem thinking that the earth is globular. None whatever. We got used to it."

I have faith in mankind, that someday we will get used to a lot of the scientific ideas that are controversial today. Pretty neat to think about it.
