gods got his work cut out to keep track of that many people if you ask me and that number is going to get way higher year on year as the population rises.
108 billion souls? probably the reason when your lights go out they go out for good and your going to no pearly gates to be welcomed in if you ask me. still got to love peoples optimism tho.

108 billion for Earth and that only includes humans. Include every other planet with life and all species and the number is even more staggering, try trillions upon trillions upon trillions etc.
Why would we, as humans, be so important to God's plan? Seems a bit egotistical to think we actually matter in the grand scheme of things.
Well I take that back, we do matter, just not in the conventional sense. We are here for experience and the universe is just one big experience unfolding over billions of years. We are integral to that experience in the same way that each part of a motor is integral to a car running. One part goes out and the entire car becomes useless.
