View Full Version : How long do you think 'humanity' will survive? With Poll

I was wondering how many of you out there are confident that the human race will survive and flourish.

It was my intention to make a proper poll out of this, but the system has found me 'lacking' in some regard. If any members out there have 'poll creation' privilages, and think this is an interesting enough topic...please feel free to initiate a real poll.

Homo Sapiens goes back roughly a few million years, our history, roughly 10 thousand. How much longer do you think 'humanity' will continue?

And for those of you confident that 'Mankind' will survive. What direction do you think evolution will take?
Would we evolve into creatures like the 'x-men'? Turn into 'brain creatures' maybe? Or perhaps evolution into 'pure energy' ?

" What do you think?"

Just doing TannhauserGate a favor ^_^

Ive never really given this much thought. :(question marks):
Im liking the evolution into pure energy thought.
But if i were to imagine it and think hard on it.....
either

Sentient ingenuity will allow us to harvest the energy of the stars, and to eventually control Red Shift and prevent either the Cold Ending or the Squeeze Ending that scientists currently project as the natural end of the Universe.

It's only been about 50 years since the birth of consumer computing and the ideas floating around are already extraordinarily ambitious -

i seriously debate this, as i have witnessed total dumbness and total idiocy, in a game that has 15 million people hooked on it, and its world of warcraft, how in the hell a person cant seem to figure out a fight and know the way to do it, even when its so simple in mecanics, back way when fights were more elaborated and hard few people raided, nowadays EVERYONE raids and battles are so retarded and easy and still people has massive Brain congestion, Epileptic Seizures and complete blockouts when it comes to do properly the damn fight, for god sake.

so i have come to the simple conclusion that if you fail in a simple miserable game, you must fail harder on life, well i guess that people have different types of luck that help them preserve their lives. or someone helps them to stay alive.

even im victim of this, since i havent had any serious mental activity i feel a bit more dumber in fact i did an IQ test, my previous one was 147, nowadays i soar the 117-123 borderline making me a normal average joe.

this its the tendency the average, most folks tend to be more lazy and want simplified things that dont defy their intellect or make a hard time for them, well the "good" thing about playing an MMOrpg and having to socialize with people its that im a lil more tolerant but still i dont like much to socialize if possible i avoid it, if its necessary then i flip the switch and bring forth another personality and be as false, hypocrite, friendly and stupid as i can be to socialize with lower humans.

btw someone knows a way to recover lost intelligence aside from a buff from a mage with Arcane Intellect? XD.

also

2012 is a just a promotion for the movie

then eventually it will make 30 more sequels and some of them may include casts such as Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Jake Gyllnehall, and that comedian who never had his own comedy show who I forgot the name.

2014...2025...2045...

you name it.

Moar !!!

I wish i could live to see that glorious future.

It would be fun to contrast what things people bitch about over eons.

Folks are gonna be always complaining, but it sure would be fun to see the evolution
of such social trends of protesting and sheer rage.

Well, the technology goes further and the peoples becomes more sure that nothing will happen as long they live. They don't mind about the later generation, so in not that long time, something very bad thing on the earth will happen and nobody guessed it before.

Humanity will long too many millions of fucking years... humans are like parasites... if the earth will see an end... theyll find a way to go to another planet and destroy it.. and then go to another... and stuff.. thought it have been discovered now that is possible to live in the moon... that would be the first site of "evacuation" if something happens... what i doubt but... i would be dead for that time so... why should i care?

At current conditions, not more than 100 years.
Unless we make something extremely major.

Unfortunately for other planets, humanity will survive for decades now. Unlike superior powered dinosaurs humans have superior cranium and they have survived just by thinking and breeding often. We will continue that way... well most of us, but we will be cockroaches of universe. Remember my words.

Obviously, if human continues to do whatever like now without considering the situation of our beloved Earth, there's no way they will survive long.
There's a limit to everything.

pfff...what do you call humanity?
humans kill other for mere money, a currency our ancestors foolishly created
It started the greed and if we don't change we change our ways we will all perish.
humanity is being a parasite at the moment

The world could end any second actually, some dumb greedy basterd only has to press the big red button, to fire the first nuke and chaos will follow
because every country is gonna fire their nukes too.

also for those who want something funny:

Yeah that would really suck If some idiot starts a nuclear war, Pakistan and India already have enough nukes to destroy the world... heres hoping that MAD(mutually assured destruction) works and we don't blow each other into oblivion. Worked for the cold war, both sides had a couple red alerts but decided if it was a misunderstanding it wouldn't be worth it to push the button. ^_^

^ lol not everyone in the world has the same view that war is always irrational, there will always be the greedy who will fight for personal gain who we have to fight back against... also in a world such as the one in George Orwell's 1984, you would want to fight back against that kind of anti-freedom government... Liberty belongs to the ones willing to defend it...

I know how this sounds but I'm with the idea that mankind exists to create a more perfect form of Homo Sapiens or android that will inherit the Earth from us,
those who are better equipped to survive the millions of years that will pass, where we would have died off if not for the advancements made in science.

We would at least create a legacy for ourselves... to create the perfect being, would be quite the accomplishment for a species... xD

the Science-Fiction movies like Gattaca or the Matrix show us worlds where the best adapted to survive are going to be at the top... (the matrix was mainly bullshit how Neo could be so overpowered even in the "real world" so he should have died early on against the machines along with all of humanity)

With Gattaca they genetically manipulate homo sapiens to create better adapted human's to survive in the hazardous effects of space travel... after 100 generations of this we will have evolved to the point of no longer being merely Homo sapien but will be some new species... causing your original question to be somewhat hard to answer, would it be the end when a new sub-species inherits the Earth from us?

If the advancements in science keep up the same pace, we may be able to create robots who adapt, evolve, think and act randomly such as us, but are superior to our survivability and therefore would be able to live much longer than us. where as if a pandemic or war or a major disaster wipes us out, they would survive.

I'd give it a maximum of 1000 years. Those damn crazy scientists are going to develop weapons that'll wipe out a whole country with the push of a button. Either that or they'll get lazy and go down the Skynet path.

If we look back at all the other complex animal species that had come & go... basically no specie can last for ever.

Either way I can't see us out-doing the dinosaurs, who ruled for ~60 million years.

Also seeing from the fact that the Earth on average has a major extinction every 62 million years (with 5 major ones occured already), I doubt we can surive through one...

Plus the sun only have enough life for about another 4 billion years anyway.
