Which makes more sense....

We are one of many types of animals on this planet that have instincts to survive. One day we will die and the universe will go on without us.

or...

God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him should NOT die but have everlasting life.


Which sounds like good news?  Of course the gospel sounds like good news, if it wasn't complete nonsense. I don't want to die.  I want someone to look after all of my choices and have a plan for me.  I don't want to admit I am one of many vulnerable beings in this huge world.  I want to see all of reality when I die and live in paradise.  But, I just don't think it is reality. In fact, when one steps out of the bubble of faith, it becomes almost immediately very clear that it is all made up.

I wish we as humans could invest in ways of building positive society without nonsense.
