Survival of Life
Robert Wheeler, PhD, author
Within approximately one billion years life as we know it will cease. This is when the sun will have expanded causing the ultimate global warming that destroys physical life. The life we currently enjoy is the result of about 13 billion years of development with a pattern indicating a design. What caused the design and did it have a purpose? Will this pattern of continuing development produce a form of life that survives physical destruction? We have difficulty managing things that happen next year; why be concerned about happenings a billion years off? Diverting some of the energy currently devoted to consumerism, power, and competition to these deep questions will alleviate most of the present-day problems.
