So you have pure faith on one side and pure reason on the other and we’re supposed to believe, somehow, that these two things don’t meet in the middle.

26 if I have regarded the sun in its radiance or the moon moving in splendor, 27 so that my heart was secretly enticed and my hand offered them a kiss of homage, 28 then these also would be sins to be judged, for I would have been unfaithful to God on high.
Seems like being enticed by the moon and sun (solar eclipse) is being unfaithful to God.
And to your point:
16 So do not corrupt yourselves by making an idol in any form--whether of a man or a woman,
But Jesus isn't an idol in the form of man, he's God himself in the form of man. Totally different... somehow.
But that's for another thread.
We don't know the odds of such alignments happening throughout the universe, but as science create better means of detecting the billions upon billions of other systems I wouldn't bet ours is unique in that way.
I'm sure there are some foolish individuals working in various scientific endeavors who make or have made statements of the sort you claim but in all honesty, I don't think the phenomena of arrogance and closed mindedness is the sole domain of people working in various scientific disciplines.

When I get the chance to see a solar eclipse, or even a lunar eclipse, I do not even think of what is happening technically. Why ruin the experience talking about what is happening when you are looking at it.
It is an interesting conversation talking about people who knew the events were coming through history and their planning to visit societies and scamming the people into thinking they made it happen. It shows you how science has made people rich in the past through deception. If people do not think this is not still going on today, they need to go to sites like this to see how it works.
