If "we" evolved into something else, would it matter if the old "we" became extinct?  Suppose "we" could transfer our intelligence into a machine?  Would "we" become extinct if that intelligence survived?

Yea that statistic about all the extinct species ignores the fact that most of them disappeared because they evolved.

It only takes two to survive. I think even in global nuclear war and fallout someone would survive somewhere.
If there was only two left humans would not survive, not enough gene diversity.

I just read that 99.9% of all species that have lived are now extinct.  Doesn't give much hope for us beating the odds.

I don't think we will become extinct for a very long time, but someone controlling the food supply and lack of potable water could swiftly decimate our numbers.
