  • Yes, based on science.

    The human race will go on to extinction eventually. The world is all about evolution and adapting to fit into the environment. In our case, we've been successful so far. However, natural disasters, cataclysmic events, and genocide are all ways that can lead to the mass death of human kind. As stated before, maybe the genocide is preventable if it stems from humanity. However, whats to say an astroid the size of Jupiter's not on a crash course with Earth right this moment?

  • Absolutely

    It's only a matter of time until the human race faces extinction. Every species goes through it and the human race will be included in that at some point in the future. The question is will it be a natural event or a man made one that causes the extinction and can the extinction be prevented. Obviously if it's a man made extinction it can be prevented. If it's a natural extinction will we be warned ahead of time, who knows. It could be so far into the future that none of our family sees it so we may not know but eventually it will happen, it happens to all species.

  • We are destroying ourselves

    As a species we are destroying many many other species while turning on our own. Horrific atrocities will become common place, millions will die from starvation as the ruling elite of horribly damaged murderous sociopaths take more and more resources for themselves. They have almost complete control over our thoughts and deeds, the rest of us seem helpless to do anything to stop it. I hope the planet can survive us vomiting bile all over it.

    Okay what about deep fried butter/heart attack?
    Oh, what about Fouseytube and Ricegum, YouTube is such a currupt place...

  • Human extinction is imminent.

    Current human reaction to any environmental threats are constrained by cost concerns and selfishness. Nothing will be done until the last second, when our "Johnny come lately" efforts will be exactly that...TOO LATE. I wish my children good luck...They will need it. "Farewell and adieu, Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu to you, ladies of Spain..."

  • The knowledge of technology will out pace man's common sense capacity.

    Man has always grown in knowledge and technology but continues to fight wars and trash the planet like they did fifty thousand years ago. Man's common sense does not evolve at all what so ever. Humans as a whole are selfish and want what someone else has. That is why we continue to fight wars and perpetuate suffering. If we had made a showing of some kind of improvement I would say we had hope. We may have even gotten worse. So one day we will be extinct like dinosaurs except we will do it to ourselves.

  • War, famine, dehumanizing the "enemy" oh my.

    Mankind will perish, if war doesn't overwhelm mankind be it traditional warfare or nuclear then disease will push it along that path. Man doesn't even need to get killed off directly, a famine to say rice would leave millions starving in Asia alone. Which would push man to war over resources. And you need to look no farther than the actions man takes one another to realize man is to violent to survive itself. The killing fields of Cambodia, Hitler and Stalin's holocaust, the murder of minorities by the KKK, just to name a few big ones not even the small crimes that plague the planet. And finally if humans do survive they will have to sacrifice something that makes them human thus losing their humanity. Mankind is doomed to perish eventually, in one way or another

  • The human (species or race) will continue to develop abilities that keep homeostasis and healthy living active in our peoples.

    Throughout all our history, human beings will either have the new technologies for keeping the human race completely active and healthy, or adapt to the environments necessary for survival throughout the rest of time. I find it highly unlikely that the human race is doomed in any way, due to these two extremes being true. The only way the human race COULD however, in theory "go extinct", would be a full scale nuclear war (aka World War III) and also massive wars, or possibly a huge asteroid impact could wipe out humanity as well. Though we should forbid these possibilities.

  • We are the most advanced civilization to ever live on this planet.

    If we stop teaching our kids organized religion. We close our children's minds to the endless possibilities when we teach them constrictive religion. It's comparable to teaching our children that the world is flat, and they later find out in school that we've been lying or giving them information that isn't justified in science. By teaching children that God made us in his image, you eliminate evolution, the funding principle of our existence. In essence, we have stopped evolving as a result of organized religion. It's the basis of governments, it's the fundamental reason for many wars, and MOST OF ALL is the reason we have not advanced further as a HUMAN RACE. Once we realize this fundamental flaw, there are endless possibilities for us.... Including leaving this planet when it is no longer sustainable. If we continue lying to our children, we will die with this planet or have a nuclear war.

  • We still have a chance

    Look at this, you are letting fate decide whether we die or not. If we just worked together, then maybe just maybe then we could survive. People who say that we are doomed can stick to that belief. However, the sort that still have a shred of hope like me, we can make it and create a future for the better

  • It's our choice.

    Mankind's fate is his to determine. We will decide whether we'll be here in 5000 years or not. God will not save us from ourselves; I've no doubt that we squander our resources and live unsustainably, but collectively we can decide whether we will change this or commit race suicide. I personally believe that for the sake of our long term survival, we have to re-educate ourselves on the value of life. We have spent thousands of years building a civilization that values money over life.

    Abolish money.

  • I SAY SO

    We're good for another 50,000 years I would suspect. There may be a drastic turn in the lifestyle that humans live, but dang it, if we aren't crafty and ingenious mammals. We'll adapt and be far less of a parasitic influence on the planet. Plus, what's the use in crying, "The sky is falling" - will we all switch to high-efficiency light bulbs and thus change the world. I don't think so. The earth will take care of itself and we, likely in smaller numbers, will be there to see the changes.

  • Ingenuity, Sheer Numbers Say Otherwise

    To say that every race goes extinct is untrue. Sharks and alligators have remained largely unevolved for eons and are throwbacks to the dinosaur age. Humans are the first species, we believe, capable of intelligent thought and scientific engineering. Our sheer numbers seem to indicate that even during a mass extinction, someone will survive and procreate. Humans nearly became extinct early in our existence and we survived then. We will survive again and again. Even as the Earth is destroyed when the sun exhausts its fuel billions of years in the future, humans will have created space travel to move forward to find another home.

  • Maybe not.

    The fact is that we do not know enough about the universe to say for sure. Some believe that the universe is collapsing in on itself, and eventually all matter will be destroyed. If so then the human race definitely has an end. On the other hand, others believe that the universe is constantly expanding and therefore if the human race expands with it we could have an indefinite future.

  • We are definitely doomed.

    To start there is ourselves. We damage the planet, use finite resources and overeat while leaving others to starve. Then, we could be killed by diseases caused by overuse of antibiotics. We could start a nuclear war and kill everybody. Then, there is meteors, which could strike without warning. Natural disasters. Then, in 4 billion years, the sun explodes after turning into a red giant which will have swallowed Earth. The closest planet we could live on is thousands of light years away. These problems could surface on those planets as well if we somehow got to them. We aren't invibcible. It might not be soon, but it will happen.

  • Technology / War = Death

    We often talk about UFO and alien species with super intelligence.
    Well the technology curve means that if we were to encounter intelligent life then it would be so far advanced that it would be like humans trying to communicate with fish!! - So....My theory is as long as we abandon superstition aka stupidity aka war aka the new/old threat nuclear war brought on by religion then technology will carry the species forward. However, either way, humans by war or by technology face their own extinction because they are too inferior and irrelevant.

Yes it will I am not religious or a greeny communist, ect but am 55 well travelled and would consider myself above adverage intelegence! We were hunter gatherers for 1-2. Million years farming only past 10k and industrialised for 100, something has gone wrong to fast there could be a nuclear accident big war or global warming is a lot worse than we think! Capitalism and power is past the point of no return most cultures want more and more wealth plus the world is over populated old age poverty ect. The only thing what will save the human race is some disaster man made and the hand full of survivors would start again and learn from everything there past mistakes then it could even be a type of Utopia

of course we are doomed. we can't rule out aliens because our whole goldilocks planet theory is bull. and life doesn't have to be carbon based. if we do go extinct it will either be the doing of us or another creature from halfway across the universe

We're not doomed to extinction. But our ancestors will be silky haired ratlike critters hiding in the ruins of atom bombed polluted cities while the real rulers of the earth, giant mutant cockroaches hunt them for food.

I'm not entirely sure that we could or could not have an indefinite future based on what we know about space and our mother earth but I am hopeful that we can find out if our race will or will not have an indefinite future.

The human race will cease one day, definitely, it will have nothing to do with the environment, as this is a scare tactic, the environment is better now than it has been for a long time.

Once a long time a go dinosaurs lived here and now they don't. You don't have to be overly intelligent to figure this out.

Do you truly want the human race to continue, please go and do some googling and find out what is really happening out there.

I feel awful saying this but, I think we as a whole should be wiped out of existence, the very nature of man is cruel and its only getting worse.

We are a parasitic species that cares nothing for balance, on the whole. Usually parasites use up every resource then move or die. Since we cannot move off the planet... We die.
