It depends on the definition of world peace.  Is world peace just for humans?   soldier4death mentioned seven billion ideas.   How about if there's zero human ideas?   If humans go extinct, is there world peace?  Or does violence/predation continue?

From a humanist perspective, a terrible threat to earth from outside of this world could jar our collective conscience to come together in unprecedented harmony/solidarity.  
From an animalian perspective, all life would likely have to end.  
From a religious perspective, the 2nd coming of Christ, the rapture, Armageddon, or some other massive global catastrophe prophesied in books or calendars might need to occur.  
From a government perspective, world peace may be possible someday but what a horrible world it'd be not being able to violently throw down people you disagree with and take their stuff!
From a futurist perspective like the Star Trek universe where humanity is so evolved we don't even use money anymore?   Nope, still zapping each other!

"The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the Legislature.  The Executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question" ~ James Madison
"Peace cannot be achieved by force, only by understanding."  ~ Albert Einstein
"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.   To impose on them a wretched life of hunger and deprivation is to dehumanize them." ~ Nelson Mandela
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians.  Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." ~ Mahatma Gandhi

As long as there are humans, there will be war.

Could humans achieve world peace or are we doomed to just keep repeating the same wars and mistakes until we wipe ourselves out?

Unfortunately - No..  Humans will always differ and bicker..We suck !

Nope. Humans need conflict to strive - to keep on achieving - to keep on advancing. If we have "world peace" we would begin to stagnate as a species...

that gets back to the whole concept of the problem being the way we think.....

arguments start because we believe that we are right....
and argument is a heated debate over who is right and who is not...

ego based from start to finish...

to start peace.... might i suggest a simple thought?

everybody has the right to their own opinion....
no matter how wrong it may be.....

there is truth to every side of the argument...

when you sit and listen to what is being said....

you learn a larger view to your own world....

its ok to disagree... but there really is no point to getting wrapped up in ego....

Everyone will differ  regardless..  You have your ideas.. others will either agree or not.. Ego  is a human stumbling block..many cannot see past it..  We all get a trip or two with our own ego's  ..
