There are no gods, they are mere fictions men invented so that we can lie to ourselves about being a transitory life form that must struggle to survive, and use the comfort of that lie to manipulate people politically rather than educate them so that they can act rationally to improve their condition, or welcome the end to their discomfort.
The planet will turn to ash first because the sun will expand.
The planet will be destroyed and absorbed by the sun after it expands.
The sun will collapse and take everything with it at the end of its life.
We are in adulthood of our star and do not have unlimited time to get off the planet.
