i was just wondering how people think humans will be wiped out.
obviously there is no correct answer, i just wanto hear some of the things people think "could" happen that will cause the race of "humans" to become extinct.  
we have seen time and time again how civilization outsmarts itself,  (with anything fom cutting down forrests to making nuclear weapons to polution into the atmoshpere) starting something without thinknig about the problems it could cause, now on all of those examples its almost too late to change anything.  Will it be something like this that causes mankind to fall?

what do you think will end the reign of civilization?
or end the world even...

Nuclear or Biological warfare, everyday we are thinking up new ways to kill each other, i would say this would be most likely.

I think someone is going to piss me off one too many times, and Homer's wrath will bring forth total annihilation. Not just this planet, or even this solar system, but the entire galaxy cluster.

Now for a more serious answer, I think if it happens at all, humanities extinction will be caused by changes in the climate. More specifically, the shifting of the tectonic plates causes volcanic activity, and too much volcanic activity causes undesirable effects to the very air we breathe, as well as influences the weather throughout the world. This, along with humanities role in polluting the planet and eradicating the rainforests and other environmental nightmares causing worldwide climate changes. So my answer is climate change, but not caused by any one thing, and not to exclude an impact which creates a fallout that influences the global climate.

I donエt know how, but most likely it is something that humans does for themselves.
And further I think natures way to keep a spieces down on a normal level will couse a plague that we can not stop eventually...think the plagues"sars,ebola, aids etc" is ways for nature to do just that.( we have stopped/limited those thought )

I donエt think a plague like that will exterminate the human race fully but takes it down to a level nature and mother earth wants. (tries to balance it)
Thats what I think.

We are just farts in space and time.



Be nice !

Too many plausible answers for the end of civilization.

However, barring an unforeseeable cosmic catastrophe, the world will end when our sun goes into it's red giant stage and fries it out of existence.

Exeter,
Don't be so pessimistic. A little sun screen and some cool sunglasses should be sufficient for the Red Giant grin2.gif

I think we should be speaking of things on a more 'galactic' scale when discussing what is likely to bring about the end of mankind.

Within 100-200 years we could easily be living on Mars, the moon, and possibly further afield aswell. Within 1000 years who knows, and by the time the sun becomes a red giant we will have probably colonised half the galaxy.

Disasters affecting the earth will not be the ultimate demise of humans, not unless something major happens within the next couple of centuries.

i dont care what any expert says, its gona be a hell of a lot longer than 200 years before we can colonize mars.   The moon is a little bit more realistic,  but who would wana live on the moon.

I think some super bug will get us long before we get off this little piece of rock.  All hail our new master, the virus!  Biological of course.  In fact some are using me to breed more soldiers (masters) right now...

Seriously though , I don't really see an end , it will just be another change in the cycle .
   I believe that the chances of complete extinction of the human race are so very very small as to be near impossible . I mean somebody must be clever enough to survive . Darn it I'll do it ...  thumbsup.gif

I agree with Kismit I guess,

i think humanity WILL become extinct.  there is alot of evidence showing that humans were not meant for civilization.  Living in caves, hunting animals.  i dont know how many people beleive in the faculties of the mind, things like telakenesis and self healing through mind power, things like that.  But i think that the people in caves use to have these ablilities,  then they evolved into what we call "civilization",  cities, religion, polatics etc.  and since then the worlds been nuthing but wars, famine, Pestilence, betrayal and destruction.  i dont know about any1 else, but i cant see that improving in the future.  and if an asteroid doesnt hit the earth or our sun doesnt expload or the world doesnt ice over.  then humanity will Inevitably destroy itself.

You're not saying that you're calling this primitive "society", in which people would bash each other heads in for a chunk of mammoth meat, Utopia, now are you?

I really don't think that these Neanderthals (pardon my archeological ignorance) were shiny, happy people chasing butterflies with daisies in their hair.
