How is the world going to end?


I guess the real question would be, what do you think will cause the extinction of the human species or the death of a significantly large portion of it? Will it be infrastructure collapse due to our lack of preparation for a CME? How about societal upheaval in response to our dwindling natural resources like water? Unpreparedness for a large asteroid? Supervolcano? Global sea level rise due to climate change? Artificial superintelligence? Oh yea, nukes? Let me know what you think.

    But a lack of food/water would not/could not cause us to be extinct because we couldn't use it ALL up. What would happen is enough people would die to reach the threshold that the remaining food/water could sustain.

    I'm going w/ major disaster

    @Chef: Exceptional. I looked around for that hub but was unable to find it anywhere. Do you have the link? I would love to give it a read.

    Right, death by Red Giant, but you can't honestly believe humans will make it to see that. What do you think the demise of our species will be?

    Can't Jesus just make everyone be good instead? That's what I would do.

    A nuclear event or supervolcano would blanket the atmosphere and block out the sun. No more sun, no more food, no more humans.

    A rogue AI could be a problem if allowed to power/defend/expand itself. There would be almost no limit.
