Laughter: If Two Galaxies Collide and No One Was There to Hear It, Did They...

I decided to watch this:

And I laughed.

We should laugh.  God sits in the heavens and laughs.

Man will be long gone.  Two galaxies will collide and no one will be here to see it.  All of this floating debris, capriciously moving around, intersecting and banging up against each other. Nobody there to appreciate it.  One gigantic rock quarry.  Oh well.


It makes no sense at all.

Maybe the galaxies are on a collision course.  The two, however, won't arrive at the collision, because, before that, they'll be rolled up like a scroll.  All things do not continue as they were from the beginning of creation. "[T]he heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."  "[T]he heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together."

The present universe will not be here to see us, if it could see.

I've noticed with the really cool cataclysmic stuff, that it's all either really far in the past, or really far into the future. No colliding galaxies or expanding suns in the near future for us.

Hahaha. Yeah, I notice that too. Non verifiable, but say it was complete certainty. Very uncertain Bible true while we are living. Very certain galaxies collide after we explode in a sun fireball. The universe really is cruel to people in the end. But they're good with that.
