Ecclesiastes 3:20 (ESV)

20 All go to one place. All are from the dust, and to dust all return.

The human body and that of the animals are made of the dust of the earth. After the fall, part of man’s punishment is, By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return (Genesis 3:19).

Anyone who does not look beyond this earth will see no essential difference between humans and animals. Looking at only this life, you can easily become a supporter of the theory of evolution. It seems as if the grave, the decay into dust, is the ultimate destination for people and animals.
