Definitely, the Sun will stop bringing light one day, and that marks the end of the earth. This does not mean the earth would be no more, but it would be void and full of darkness. That is telling us that the earth the Bible is referring to is not the planet, earth.
Let’s assume it’s even the planet, earth, Science and the scientists do not specify the day it will end, they only said it’s going to take millions of years. If we do know the day this earth might come to an end, Mars would have served as a succour. Scientists, technologists, engineers, and astrologists are readily working on it to make it habitable.
If Mars will soon be habitable only those countries that cannot manufacture rockets would remain on Earth (or may be they would buy, but it’s going to be costlier than airplanes many times.) Mars can actually contain all of us!
Meanwhile, if God is not referring to the planet Earth, it is referring to the individual living on Earth. We were made from the earth (dark soil), and we all know one day, we would go back to the soil. It is obvious that ‘earth’ is coming to an end. Then, what next?
Surely, we were existing before we were born to the planet, earth. Definitely, we have to go back to the place. I guess that place is Heaven, and there is an infinite intelligence in charge. Science and many scientists recognize the Infinite Intelligence. I think that should be God, the Light, and the source of other lights. Then, only few scientists and people are left in the dark.
It might take millions of years before the earth comes to an end, but your ‘earth’ can come to an end at any time before the day you were born and 120 years thereafter. It takes rockets to get to Mars; it will take holiness after you’ve dedicated your life to Christ to be ‘rapturable’. Those that were able to manufacture rockets dedicated their lives to the infinite intelligence in seclusion before that discovery.
