Is it possible that mankind might survive on this planet as long as the dinosaurs?
The dinosaurs reigned for 165 million years - could we even contemplate surviving here that long in view of the current problems facing humanity?
Absolutely not. In fact some theorize that we are all in a Matrix simulation world. From wiki: In 2003, philosopher Nick Bostrom proposed a trilemma that he called "the simulation argument".

In 2010 "Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University, has predicted that the human race will be extinct within the next 100 years.
He has claimed that the human race will be unable to survive a population explosion and 'unbridled consumption.’"
The Earth will be just fine just as soon all this ticks crawling allover it sucking the black gold out of it's body goes away.

As some will know, I am not a god-botherer, but my imagination runs wild when I think of all the good things that could be done at this moment if there was a god.If you were a god, what would you fix first and what things would you change?

Arguably mankind is the most destructive being on the planet. Why?Why do you think man, as a collective, has historically tried to destroy that which he fears, to oppress that which is the same as himself, his fellow humans? Do you think we will ever overcome our own fear? I think...
