1) — that the Bible teaches we do NOT go to heaven or hell immediately after we die, even though most religions and many popular TV programs promote the false belief that we shift into another living dimension at death?

Fifty years ago this month U.S. astronauts left the shining blue ball of earth and walked on the moon for the first time. Throughout the world people stopped and watched transfixed as human beings did something only dreamed about for centuries. Today the dream continues as we plan to send spaceships to Mars and perhaps even more distant planets. We earnestly and eagerly search for life elsewhere in the universe. What drives this quest to learn and explore? Do we really even understand that what we’re really searching for is our place in the universe, why we exist and our ultimate destiny?
