The cross separates unbelievers from believers, because for the ones it is scandal and madness, for the others is God’s power and wisdom of God (cf. 1 Cor 1:23-24); but in a deeper sense it unites all men, believers and unbelievers. “Jesus had to die [...] not for the nation only, but to gather into one the dispersed children of God” (cf. Jn 11:51f). The new heavens and the new Earth belong to everyone and are for everyone, because Christ died for everyone. – Raniero Cantalamessa

Science will eventually prove our common parentage in Adam and Eve, the Flood and Noah’s Ark, and all the other stories of the Bible. When it does, there will still be disbelievers.
