6. II

THE REPRODUCTION OF THE HUMAN RACE ON EARTH WILL NEVER CEASE Those who have made it their belief that at the time of the Last Judgment everything both in the heavens and upon the earth will be destroyed, and their place will be taken by a new heaven and a new earth, are bound as a consequence to believe that new generations and the reproduction of the human race will cease after this. They think that this marks the completion of history and that people will change their state from what it was. But since the day of the Last Judgment does not mean the destruction of the world as was demonstrated in the last chapter, it also follows that the human race will continue in existence, and reproduction will not cease.
