If one must believe, something else would be preferable to an old and obvious outworn historical fiction.
To actually know if there is such a being or beings is not possible; it can only be measured on an index of probability which nevertheless remains red-hot that there are no such entities existing by the simple fact that nothing ever external to scripture confirmed it. Knowing what we NOW know leads to disbelief or atheism which is nothing more than a justified renouncement of the underpinnings of theism. But even atheism, as subject to its own logic, has no claim or means to know absolutely.
That sentiment depends wholly on the wishes and sensibilities of the individual. I don't interpret it that way. Nature defines every aspect of the universe in the most minute detail. From what we know on planet earth it’s a brute force of creation and destruction whose operations are thoroughly devoid of anything that can be described as justice. The forces of nature always seek to balance themselves out; but justice as equalization, in the human sense of reward and retribution, is the emptiest of empty terms in its modus. Nature, in order to create, is subject only to its own modality and nothing else. There are no Justice limitations defined within it.
As for bodily death, that’s the least problem we’ll ever encounter. For the dead time itself no-longer exists; the “deprivation” felt equals that before you were born, namely none since the dead cannot know they ever lived. No one ever said, blimey! It sure took a helluva time getting here!
