Heaven vs. the singularity
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- The hypothetical future existence of the singularity is based on logical arguments about real-world observations; the hypothesized existence of heaven is based entirely upon works of theist mythology.
- The singularity will not happen if civilization collapses; heaven has supposedly existed since the creation of the Earth.
- Whether or not we as individuals end up making it into the singularity depends less on our individual actions and more on the progress of technology and history (see #1); our entry into heaven, on the other hand, is supposedly governed by the decisions of one particular entity ("God") regarding the morality of our behavior as individuals.
