This question comes from a discussion I had with a friend of mine. The discussion of a hypothetical situation was – We discover a planet or planets/moons in another solar system that are perfect for us (without doing any terra-forming or anything of that sort) weather wise et all and are really beautiful and it would be really beneficial for us (health wise etc) to move there. And suppose that humanity does actually become technologically advanced enough to ship as many humans and equipment needed and it’s purely voluntary as you can also remain here on earth.
She says the really religious people will choose to remain and work it out on earth and most of those (90%-95%) who are secular / agnostic /atheists and perhaps not too religious will choose to go. Do you guys agree? Would you opt to go to this planet or planets and live there in this situation? Or would you choose to remain on earth?
