      Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
      I feel that the earth isn’t a prison but instead like college, we live here and grow and learn, once we die, we “graduate” from earth and are able to join god in the afterlife to be in places that until we go there, we shall never see, if you don’t agree that’s fine but i know that there is proof of god and that once we die we don’t just cease or disappear.

              Can't be the only one thinking we just need to invent a better driving engine for space travel that can achieve orbit with low to no fuel cost or it generates it's own fuel and powers better than Nuclear.

I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

                                                                                            Repent and turn from sin to God the Creator* . Jesus wants to have a personal relationship with everyone it begins with trusting in the facts in science that clearly prove he does exist. Such as how we don't control our breathing or perfect distance we are to the Sun. The proof is in the creation. Abundant blessings

                                                                                            ** To the prior comment um ok u asked me for proof? I'm not someone who does this all day. A man named Ray Comfort is. His channel Living waters explains your question to many. It's just a suggestion you check it out

There is loads of proof that God exists. DNA being one of the main ways we can prove that his existence is real. There is no way at random DNA could of wrote itself. I'm not avoiding the question just showing you one of the examples. God is the creator of the universe and lives eternally. We are promised eternal life and an eternity in heaven if u are seeking truth about God and ask Him to reveal himself he will. Jesus died for the sins of man so we can live eternally in heaven. It's hard to just believe all this from a YouTube post I'm sure but if u are tired of a life of emptiness there is a friend in Jesus the King of Kings and He is waiting for those who are seeking the truth to turn to Him and turn from a life of sin. I would also look up Christian testimonies and how God has revealed himself
