The End

Humans will eventually die out. We've known that for a while now, but the big question is when. When and how will we end?
It's sort of comforting, this idea that we will eventually be entirely wiped out. No matter how much humans fuck up the world, there will be a day when we can't do it anymore. That's a little reassuring.
I think overpopulation and pointless fighting are going to be our eventual downfall. Either that or the sun will burn out and we'll have no other energy source and die. Either way, it's not going to be terribly exciting. With overpopulation, we'll eventually run out of land to grow food on (and we will have been using half of it to grow fuel. Stupid, stupid, stupid) and then end up eating each other or just killing off some people to lessen the problem, then getting carried away.
I sort of want to yell "We're all going to die!" right now.

And, adding to your post, all the ways we are trying to save the world are completely overshot. I think a lot of people have this idea that all our new technological advances are going to make the world significantly better. Like we're all striving for utopia-like perfection and thinks it's atainable. But we will never get there. All our world saving advances are merely keeping us alive. We're sustaining. I don't think we'll ever get too much better this.

Sam you are right to say that the world of humans will suffer untold pain in the coming days, the bible is full of that story, but the part of the story you are not seeing is greater than the story you are seeing. Look at the HOPE, that is contained within the story. What has your attention that you are contemplating such heavy things about humanity? Send me a note, I would love to hear your thoughts. Peace

We're all going to die regardless.

I mean, me and you and my dog and that guy at the library who yelled at me the other day.

And someone's going to be the last person ever. Whether it's from a nuclear war or pollution death or stupidity or an asteroid.

I mean, even if we can avoid killing ourselves, in about 900 million years the Sun's radiation will increase, accellerating the CO2 cycle and killing all the plants (and for obvious reasons, all the animals, ergo humans).
