What is better - eternal bliss or a simple bread?

This is like something i learned in Geometry. If A<B and B<C then A<C, it has a name but i don't remember it
But that is not what is going on here.
Eternal_Bliss < Nothing (Nothing better than Eternal Bliss)
and Nothing < Slice_of_Bread (Slice of Bread better than Nothing)
then Eternal_Bliss < Slice_of_Bread. (Slice of Bread better than Eternal Bliss)
The error is one of Equivocation; the two instances of "Nothing" do not mean exactly the same thing.

if you were to use the same definition on the bread, than nothing could be the same as bread or better. just not eternal bliss

God is love.
Love is blind
Stevie Wonder is blind.
Stevie Wonder is God.

Time waits for an island.

nothing is better than eternal bliss, meaning that anything you could compare would not be better
bread better than nothing, meaning that having bread is better than having nothing
so to clarify this
eternal bliss can not be compared, and if all you have is bread, be happy because you could have nothing

The way you guys are thinking about it is having both instances of nothing mean the same thing, when they don't (unless you're a smartass).

So if you are spiritual: Depending on the bread, bread could mean eternal bliss. So, not taking the bread could be death of the soul.
Non religious view.
We all will experiance death. Bread is a choice and death is not. Death greets us all. (sooner or later) Death is an absolute.
So, on both religous and non religous terms my choice would be the bread.
