Would achieving immortality now without any chance of successfully colonizing another planet in the next 500 years be good or bad for humanity?

Overpopulation and possible mass death vs. no problem.

Could we avoid any issues that would arise?

Any possible way you can explain in English how achieving immortality includes mass death? I thought "we" achieved immortality? Does your "we" not mean everyone on the planet?

One issue would be understanding how immortality becomes mass death....how exactly does not dying result in dying?

That isn't what i meant. XD

Since no one would die and we would keep reproducing wouldn't overcrowding be an issue?

Or would we be fine for 500 years?

Overcrowding then communism or some other thing people would be stupid about.

If we die from overcrowding then it wasn't immortality we achieved, it was something else.

An interesting question. I think it would be the end of humanity if we we could live forever and couldn't leave Earth for the next 500 years. If we can go to the moon at least, then we might survive. Or if we build cities in the oceans we might make it.

So we wouldn't survive 500 years without a bottleneck event?

No wait, you're right. Populations would decrease (due to food shortages) but humanity will continue in smaller numbers.

But would there be a way to stop this?

Would there be a major war?

Would we have to keep people from reproducing.

God have mercy on the wicked, deceitful and depraved if I ever achieved immortality, because I wouldn't.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

There would be no way. Unless we have some kind of dictator controlling every human, there will be chaos.
