What if

What if the world was billions of years old? What if it all came about by chance and the random movement of particles after a big bang? What if what we see around us is the evolutionary development of matter with no external control? What if things really can change species boundaries with no apparent reason so that humans really do come from monkeys? What if the universe really is just without design? What if humanity really is without meaning? What if there is no absolute right and wrong? What if there is nothing bigger and better than humans? What if humans therefore really are the top of the pile and it is just survival of the species? What if all this is true? What happens when we die?

My answer – We are dead and life was and is meaningless.

Or alternatively

What if the world is not billions of years old? What if we did not come here by chance but were thought out, planned and created by a deity – God? What if what we see around is here by design and is sustained by God? What if animals are animals and humans are humans and we each have our own purpose and reason for being here? What if the universe was created to show how great and awesome the creator was? What if there is a purpose to humanity? What if there is an absolute right and wrong that is laid out by God with the right being the best and most productive way for humans to live and the earth to be? What if there is something bigger than humans and earth and the universe? What if humans therefore are not top of the pile and there is something more than just surviving this life? What if all this were true? What happens when we die now?

My answer – We go before that creator God and answer for how we lived our lives.

Which way do you believe is true?

Which way do you believe is better?

Which way do you believe makes more sense?
