Abstract

People live in this world and expect salvation in the world to come. Therefore, thoughts about eschatology have to cope with God’s overall creation. From a mental point of view, the understanding of timeliness is most important because the hope of salvation has to postulate a deep secret behind temporal progression. Indeed, quantum physics provides a completely unexpected picture of what history means on a fundamental level. Some features of the consistent-history interpretation of quantum physics are highlighted. From our reasoning, two main conclusions can be drawn: (i) The belief in salvation is no less a rational expectation than the atheistic world view. (ii) Even if the hope in salvation would be justified, nevertheless, its promises would be entirely ambiguous.
