Do you think people will ever go extinct

Report as

Some day.... Yes. The earth is only so big and will only hold so many people. Whats going to happen when the natural resources run out?? Extinction. Could also end up in a cataclysmic catastrophe as well. Never know.

u said the earth is gonna over populate. yah i dont think so
Report as
Why do you not think so?? People are being born every day... and people are living longer than ever before.
When I was a kid... there were 2 billion people on the planet. NOW... there is about 6 or 8 billion. That is a HUGE increase.

Considering the shape earth is in right now because of humans, I honestly wouldn't be surprised. Not to mention they are ALWAYS fighting and killing each other

Very possible. Seeing how violence increases, resources constantly being depleted, and soon more people than the world can handle. When resources become scarce, people will fight over the remains.

Of course. There will be another very big extinction, and another creature if some kind will Rome this earth. But that's in millions and millions if years from now.

In my opinion, yes, absolutely and the earth will keep orbiting the sun as usual until something slams into it or the sun explodes. I do not believe, however, that we will be the cause of our own extinction, we are very resourceful creatures, primal instinct. A CATASTROPHIC event will be what does us in, asteroid, comet, volcanic eruption...sorry I can blabb !

If we don't get this global warming problem solved, yes. Already scientist say there will be 20% fewer people on earth at the end of this century than there are now. Thank God at 68 years I don't have much more time to fight climate change deniers.

No not all the way. I believe if we look at this in the natural order of things, the earth is the host and we are the bacteria. The bacteria multiple and kill the host. Nothing to survive on the bacteria die off , but some adapt . Yes there will be a mass human die off due to disease.

Of course. Even if we manage to not kill each other off or sterilize our planet, there are things beyond our control that will certainly destroy us. Eventually our sun will go supernova, and unless we've managed to get off the earth and colonize other star systems, that's it for the human race. Eventually, our extinction is inevitable. When the universe stops expanding and collapses in on itself, (supposing we live until then, which is unimaginably unlikely) we're certainly done for.

Jeez, I hope so. Imagine what we'll look like when we evolve further...yeesh...I mean, we're ugly now, but we could be uglier later. And in this looks-obsessed society, we're either going to have to learn to accept it, or we'll all be walking around with permanent smiles and other deformities. It'll look like the music video to Black Hole Sun.

One way or another, yes. Who wants some hot chocolate? :) not for a while though. Eventually, we'll be with God- we don't need a cataclysmic event to start that.

We certainly will. Not soon of course. Homosapiens will likely go extinct but the species we turn into will continue on. I don't think any natural disasters can overcome the tenacity and versatility afforded us by technology and a tool user mentality. I believe we could even survive some of the cosmic disasters that I can think of. A ton of individuals may die but I think the species as a whole is diverse enough to survive long enough to change. There is a very old guy from before or early on in space travel who theorized the evolution of homosapiens to homocosmos. I can't remember his name right now, but he had some interesting ideas on this very subject.
