LOL!!<quoted text>Nothing is eternal, another one of your preconceived notions, and one with not a shred of evidence. Our star along with our planet and solar system will cease to exist.
I will leave behind knowledge that I have planted into the minds of hundreds. I will live on in my music, just as any other composer has done. A hundred years from now it is entirely possible that recordings I have made, and music that I have composed with be listened to and played. That is what I will leave behind, can you say the same?
I believe mankind will see the end of organized religion. As science answers more and more questions that were relegated to Godly answers, God will become an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance until a belief in mythical being will be pointless. Of course there will always be "hangers on" people too weak to navigate through life without a big daddy in the sky to hold their hands and comfort them. A thousand years from now we may well have cheated death, and have the ability to live for as long as we care to. No need for the fear of death, which is what drives most religions. We will need to migrate to the stars as our planet is eventually doomed. Without this migration our species will end.
You have any idea how many great composers are still buried underground with no way to play their music if they are ever found?
You suffer from that wanting to live eternally disease, which is a paradox for a true abiogenic atheist.
Where do you get such notions? Aren't we all just matter and energy that coalesced into these systems of self sustaining by tearing apart other matter to feed our systems? All life are eating machines. Such a machine is only interested in getting fed. Just where do these noble ideas of eternity, providing for the next generation, jumping on hand grenades to save buddies, and other abstract ideas for much further down the line come from?
Just how could an atheist come up with such concepts beyond self? Please don't give me the millions of years routine. How could such ideas even pop into their heads?
