I am glad religion has made your list.
Not a bad answer.
Disease isn't that likely. It would be if we were asexual creatures but we are not. We can build up an immunity or inherit an immunity against just about anything. It was rare, for example, for the black death to wipe out an entire town or village.
Humans in general have very little control over what big company leaders and politicians set in motion. Back in the 1960s the USA came very close to direct nuclear war with Russia over Cuba. Religion wasn't involved then but next time...
Rod, you're right we're having less and less control, but I've seen what focused effort can do. We don't see it because we never see what DIDN'T happen because people put forth the effort. We only see what happens when they don't.
But what will cause this nuclear winter? Will it be humans with atomic weapons or a great big chunk of real estate falling from the sky? Maybe it will be levels of air pollution getting totally out of hand?
Nuclear fall out from the next world war. The major powers combined have enough nuclear weapons to wipe the face of the earth clean. It only takes one button push to get the ball rolling. What will follow is the Nuclear winter
Sounds like you are on the right track.
Throw in overpopulation caused by greed, apathy and nutty religion and you've got something.
Overpopulation was not caused by greed. It was caused by too many people having unprotected sex.... either because their religion demanded it or because their culture demands it. It's the Earth that will punish us, not God.
There is still the element of greed in overpopulation. It is connected to apathy (Hey! Its their culture, none of my business) and nutty religion (We must breed better than the heathens for nutty god).
Go the way of the dinosaurs? Not bad.
I will not be surprised if the person that pushes the button to end it all for humanity will be quoting Matthew, too.
Just saying, hope you're not offended ;)
The greed of others tends to kill off compassion. We cannot agree to disagree when some of us are doing the right thing by the planet or at least are trying to while others are not.
Gays have always been around. I can't see why more of them would be born. We don't march them into death camps any more so I suppose they are more likely to live longer and so be noticed. Overpopulation engineered by the wealthy will doom us all.
The comment about homosexual babies and cosmetics is the funniest thing I've read on HubPages. You are taking us one step closer.
Male fertility has dropped dramatically since the 1920s. That's part of the Rockefeller eugenics program. But their support of gay lifestyle through the media also contributes to fewer births, but that won't destroy humanity by itself.
Rod, you last sentence is telling. I interpret it to also mean that the advancement of medicine (longer lives, increasing overpopulation) will cause our demise. The irony is wonderful: the more medicine advances, the more fragile humanity becomes.
My comment was not centered on that; it's a shame that's what you picked up. You're right they have been. But nowadays all of nature is turning female due to the chemical atmoshpere.
Yep, longer lives and increasing overpopulation is it as far as I am concerned. Plus religious nuts opting for larger and larger families. I can't see or imagine all nature turning female. Years ago the spraying of DDT was turning creatures neutral.
Read my article "Is it a female world?" to find out about nature turning female.
Wow.. You think shower gel makes homosexuals? Seriously? Tell me you are being ridiculous just to be funny.
Hemingway back in the '30s wrote about young Spanish men eating broken glass to impress the ladies. Now males eating broken glass to me is more likely to end up in a female world than the use of silly hair and/or skin products.
No, swordsbane, of course I don't think that. It's what scientists are saying and statistics are showing.
