Whether it be war, disease, a meteorite, God, or something else we don't know about yet, I think we all believe someday, the Earth will cease to exist. Could be a million years away; could be today. Being that we seem so mindful of future generations, would it make sense that for it to just end now would save future generations from witnessing and experiencing an end that will likely be terrifying, violent and painful. No matter what anyone's answer is, if really honest, it will tell us a lot about ourselves. Maybe we'll uncover things about ourselves that we didn't know. What do you think?

Eric: I'm surprised. You know me better than that! I guess what I was getting at is wondering just how selfish we are. I'm not predicting or hoping doomsday is soon. I need more space because you missed the point entirely. I'll post an answer here.
CJ: I don't believe I took a position in any direction. I asked A hypothetical question and too much is read into it. These are all theories.Can't kill something that doesn't exist. I should have asked this differently. No one is getting point of ?
