Nature at work.
The Editor: What is life about, LL ?
Cosmic Cat: If you believe life is an accident it isn’t about much. When you get right down to it, it is only important to the one involved, a few family members, and friends. Mankind is a temporary visitor to Earth. He isn’t inhabiting Mars or anywhere else until anti-gravity or time travel is discovered.
TE: Are humans insignificant, CC ?
They are, unless they believe in a creator. If you think this is all random chance-it will be over soon. You can return to star-stuff.
TE: Will humans that believe in an after-life have a more pleasant death, CC ?
They sure will. It looks like their next stop will be free of politicians, and lawyers. They might very well have a soul, which might be the part that the creator made in his image. I guess you just do the best you can.
You might be like Roy Batty in Blade Runner.
Then again you might go to an elevated existence.
