Should Society Be Preserved?
The assumption that society ought to be preserved may be a tenet that seems too obvious to question. But is it really? Isolate the idea from God, and it can be neither proven nor supported by reason. From the unbelievers’ point of view, it is not even a reasonable idea. They have only a few short years to call their own and then it’s all over for them. Why should they care if civilization survives past their own death? They have no stake in its future. Why should they divert precious time and energy from their own brief lives to do anything for others? And yet unbelievers do so the world over.
