@milanos, because we will have moved off to another galaxy or solar system?

no because we wouldve killed ourselves, the MAD theory is probably true :p

Because we would have moved to other planets indeed :) I have a lot of faith in technology.

Grr I was writing a whole post but accidentally closed the window.

But Omega, just think of what we've done in the last 50 years. Your smartphone now probably can store more data than an entire library did in those times. We have GPS, highspeed internet that allows us to have live webcam conversations with clear quality, microwaves, the human genome project, we have unmanned aerial vehicles.. Or even thinking about the much longer term. Put a human from 200,000 years ago into today's world! Or imagine telling someone 100 years ago we'd not only break the sound barrier but we would last people on the moon.

Seeing as it will be billions of years before the sun swallows us, I'd say we have time.

As far as meteors and the likes providing impending doom, I even think we would be able to deal with a huge meteor strike. There are several ways in which we can use today's technology to make sure the meteor just doesn't hit us.

Destroying ourselves does not seem all that likely. Yes we have MAD, but there will always be humans remaining.

i dont have a smartphone lol

and what about the weapons we have that can destroy entire continents and the entire world? america can do it alone and all it takes is 1 country to make a stupid mistake and the cost will be high, very high, maybe the cost of the human race, if there are survivors, everywheres will be irradiated and we will basically have to start over

You really think the US will be stupid enough to nuke the entire world? Even speaking from a worst case scenario if some EU countries go to war with the US and I dunno, China, then there's still SA, Africa and Aussie.

maybe the US wouldnt instigate it, maybe someone else would and whoever they launched it on retaliated with another, you just cant throw nukes around and not expect to get one back or at least extreme action taken

I know, but even then would it really destroy the entire world? I don't see the logic for nuking South America, as an example in the case I just gave.

true, or africa i guess lol but with the big countries with all the resources gone there aint much left for those 2 continents, and where will the survivors go? they just cant cram millions or possibly billions of people into 2 continents because most of the rest of the world is irradiated

i think it's more likely humans will kill themselves off and not some other natural occurrence.
