Imagining gone awry?

Oh, I imagine that if I believed that God did not exist, and that this ALL is just just, and is is, and beyond that is nothing and once one takes one's last breath, then for that being all is nothing, if I believed in no Creator, and I found myself here, now, and infinite nothingness for my being once I die a physical death, then I suppose I would either busy myself with "whatever" that would keep me distracted and comfortable, or I would attempt to prolong life as long as possible, and if life was created by chance and happenstance, then I suppose my mind would think that if we could only break life down to the most common denominators, and then reconstruct life without evolution-defined limits, so that a human mind could live on indefinitely, with of course all sorts of cell manipulation and creation of not only limb and organ space parts, but space parts in the micro realm of the human body. Yes, that would be the only quest, and it seems to be the current unspoken quest of science, to make what evolution created and transform and make it "better." But of course I don't believe in life as chance and happenstance. But then that's another story.

I would hope you'd continue to serve your fellow humans, to strive to improve yourself, and to try to leave the world a better place--all worthy pursuits, and without need of the promise of inheritance of the "city with streets of gold."

"reconstruct life without evolution-defined limits"

We are, alas, bound by our evolutionary limits. I was reading last night that human beings are biologically capable of inhabiting only about 4% of earth's geography, which is an interesting testament to those who would suggest that this earth was created purposely and intentionally for us!
