If people set no store in God, it seems that they need to turn to something else to give them hope.
A modern alternative is to hope in life on other worlds and a future for mankind on a celestial scale.

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.”
