Death is built into life. Nature is telling us something and it is NOT that we humans are the center of the earth much less the cosmos. No one makes it out alive-Security on earth is an illusion and so is the myth of eternal security after this dangerous one-live now. Humans have evolved from the Earth's relative stability but this can change as many other extinct species point to. Even in this relative stability many humans have died due to natural disasters and if you escape that fate all humans must face the demise of the human body because we live on a planet that does not blink when we face the end. The Earth is beautiful AND dangerous. It makes it that much more beautiful with the realization of our finite fragile lives on this tiny planet that as Carl Sagan stated exists in the universe like a mote of dust in the morning sky.
Theists speak of a "privileged planet" and ignore the volatile planet that is designed with death. Of all species that have existed on Earth, 99.9 percent are now extinct. Many of them perished in five cataclysmic events. The Earth can go from a "privileged" planet to a dangerous planet in its history and in its future. Death is part of the "design". Humans have been around for just 200,000 years and should keep in mind its frailty on this rare and at times volatile earth.
