"Rev. I certainly agree that diversity is the key to survival, but I'm not sure what you mean by "progress"." TerryNZ comments.

TNZ, IMHO, by "progress" I mean that life, for me. is a progressive process. I like to think that all who choose can be involved in an eternal adventure in an infinite space.

I find it difficult to think of life as having a final destiny, a resting place, a place where all good people will all be together in one perfect, static and happy state of being--the usual Christian idea of heaven.

I admit that I could be wrong, but I like to think of the future life, not as a place of being where I will be at rest, but as a state of being where I will have all the energy I need to get things done.

How about you?
