That's the whole point. One of the assumptions is that
astronomical cosmology has somehow been freed from its cultural biases.
In point of fact, it has not and cannot.
As long as the assumptions are pleasing to you and supportive of
your living, I don't blame you for liking them. It is called conflict of
interest in my culture.
However, to many other cultures, these assumptions are
patently ridiculous and are tools of oppression. e g the Hopi culture.
