Of course it will. Stories survived the print revolution, didn't they? Drama survived radio, the movies, and TV. The literature of the 21st century will look different from the literature of the 20th, just as the literature of the 19th century looked different form the 18th, and so on.
It already has !
Like most things in life the Internet will soon pass into history most probably faster than many things before it.
As someone who enjoys historical research it amazes me how the technological development has accelerated over the past two hundred years, something that seems to be largely ignored to most people under 40.
How could anyone survive without Jet travel, PC computers, the Internet, mobile phones, satellite communications, I pods and half a dozen other necessities of modern life ? All of which has been developed within my life time, so Yet not only did we survive without them but we probably had a hand in their development.
In literature the only difference will be the delivery system, from verbal storytelling to the written word of books, via the digital age to E Books.
With the reinvention of 3D technology and micro miniaturisation I can foresee a time when the great classics can be acted out inside your head.
It certainly doesn't appear to be suffering overmuch at the moment. What you get online by and large is different to what you get in books and there are still billions of books being printed and sold every year. I shouldn't think we need to start worrying about traditional literature dying out just yet.

Did Jesus die on the cross or survive crucifixion?

I just watched the Alive movie again. Could you eat human flesh if doing so was the only way to survive? I could. If you couldn't force yourself to eat it, would you feed it to your kids so they could survive?
