To say the earth is tiny is like saying that a pencil is huge, it's all a matter of perspective. A comparison between the earth and the universe does indeed make it tiny, as a pencil would be huge to a bacterium. We are human beings, and to us the earth is not tiny. No man could expect to traverse every inch of land on the earth, and most of the parts on earth (i.e. under the water, under the ground) are completely untouched by humanity. So how could we as human beings consider the earth tiny? Only in perspective with planetary entities and galactic plethoras of fire and rock.
