Modern day science suggests that around 5 billion years from now our sun will go supernova annihilating all life in the solar system. In Psalm 115 it says, "The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord"s, but the earth hath he given to the children of men," suggesting that humans are not able to leave Earth.

So, God made humans... but humans as a species are going to die out?
If this is the case the Bible would be stating that God made humans just to have them die eventually. The definition of sadistic is as follows : deriving pleasure from inflicting pain, suffering, or humiliation on others. If God does not take pleasure in this then why has he/she done it to other creatures like the Dinosaurs?

btw : this is coming from an atheist point of view.

Never was it stated that God gets pleasure in seeing suffering. Its probably hard to understand and believe this knowing that youre an atheist and its okay. I would just like to say that this is the belief of religous people, more specifically, Roman Catholics. We believe that our life is a test. A test to see our potential and what we are capable of doing with the life we are given. We already knew from the start that we are it is temporary and we are going to die. Life is just a phase that God observes wether we are worthy of going to heaven or not.

I respect that you are an atheist and I know its kind of hard to believe since it is based on our faith and religion but its a subjective matter and people have different stands depending on who you ask.

Were your parents sadistic for conceiving you, even though you are fated to die? Are your parents sadistic when they put limits on you? From an Abrahamic Religion POV, all our souls will exist for all eternity in heaven or hell, so what occurs in the physical universe is merely transitory.
