12/21/12 The Mayans said so, so it must be true....


Or, it could be from global warming, a meteorite, or over-population.

over-population

How would we become extinct from that?

Too many murders, less food, and less water.

global warming,

We have the potential to adapt our society to the changing conditions, but I think even if we don't, it won't kil off all humans.

less food, and less water.

Essentially this; ressources. Unless we find a clever way to distribute them, which I hold as possible theoretically, though impossible in our current society.

Even if we have too many people and people die from lack of resources, the number of people will go back down to levels where there are enough resources.

There's only three ways that the human race is going to go extinct.

1) Sun dies in 4.5 billion years.
2) Massive nuclear war and extreme radiation kills off the survivors.
3) Virulent pathogen that is easily transmittable and can survive in water, air, and extreme cold/heat.

Barring those...(and 2/3 aren't even surefire) there's no way our species is going to die off at this point. 1 would only be negated if we achieved interstellar travel and found another planet that can sustain us. Even still, the eventual heat death of the universe would be the final end all point.

by that point we will be all over the universe.

global warming

ya no. we have polar ice caps melting at like a few feet a year. big whoop.

nope. the mayans got bored and ended their calander then went extinct.

those are the best bets, but i dont think anything else isnt even a good guess. we have cut down 1.857% of the worlds trees, i believe, and water will never run out. food is growable and killable in every way. we wont run out of it.

Elementary Ecological studies from various species show that as a population reaches its limit for that particular niche, the population itself falls until it is able to sustain itself, then rises again. So when the resources of that niche falls, so does the "carrying capacity" of that population. If that lowers, the limit of that population will lower and lower still, until it balances out.

The end of humanity, if there ever will be, will be once we reach that critical stage where we become a Type-1 civilization (global), where we either forgive our past struggles and live in global peace together or live as one, single, global civilization (less likely). This is important, because if we as a single species do not, our technology will catch up to us and we will have the possibility of destroying ourselves with harmful, destructive weapons.

The end of humanity won't end from our sun either. Because at that point two billion years later, we will have already reached Type-2 or Type-3 civilization (stellar and galactic) and become immortal. Immortal meaning nothing known to science can destroy us.

As a society of course, a grenade launcher can still kill you.


Why would AG care though? Killersup and the rest of all of AG will be dead and gone way before hand.
