"It is surely harmful to souls to make it a heresy to believe what is proved" - Galileo

The first lesson in my undergrad environmental science class is about this picture. The Sun is really a nuclear furnace. Earth was born from dust and fire and the elements came about. Humans are nothing but dust from a star. We were once hydrogen and we will become once more hydrogen. To the Christian who reads his/her Gospel, the riches and kingdoms that the Devil offered to the Christ in the desert is really nothing. What does it profit a man to gain nothing in the process lose his soul?
