When all is said and done, what would humans leave as their earthly legacy? Would it be, like the dinosaurs, a bunch of fossilized remains that taken as a collective did not mean much, except that they ruled the earth for millions of years, only to be eradicated in one swift swoop by mother nature. Mothet nature may look askance at Homo Sapiens" ; what might not be too benign is man' own overweening ego...when it comes to his ultimate destiny, self-destruction is an all too real possibility.
Earthly legacy garbage.
Homo Sapiens are eternal.
"Mary Leakey has found at Laetoli in Africa, footprints which are considered to date from nearly 4 million years ago, and are identical with the footprints of modern humans except that they are somewhat smaller."
However this does not correspond to the progressive theory of evolution so it is buried.
It's not buried. If it were buried you would not know about it. What possible reason would science for lying about modern human existence? Nothing can be dated about footprints. The rock or mud under the footprints can be dated. But who's to say the mud didn't become soft again within the last 200,000 years. No modern humans have ever been takes within the last 200,000 years and no dinosaurs have ever been dated within the last 65 million years. They have no reason to lie, they just want the truth.
To answer your question about what we will leave behind... stainless steel.
I wish I could share your optimism about the longevity of Homo Sapiens as a specie, but at the rate that humans are devolving into soul-less materialists, objectivists, reductionists and nihilists....their self-destructive impulses unhampered by societal degeneration, their inevitable march towards annihilation seems assured. Unless of course humans temper their licentious ego with their consciencious spirit.

From a purely anthropological perspective, Hominid Creativity has been tied to measurable increase in cranial capacity and cerebral mass/volume. Brain size is what set us apart from our Hominid predecessors and our nearest living evolutionary kin----chimpanzees and bonobos,...

EXCEPTIONAL--- a word that humanists, of all colors and stripes, unreservedly applies to Homo Sapiens. However, in the atheist's world, Homo Sapiens is neither exceptional, nor for that matter---sensational, despite ample evidence to the contrary. So what gives?Is it because...

Why would God create such a hostile environment for humans such as the Earth? There are all kinds of natural disasters; earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc, that in the last decade alone have accounted for hundreds of thousands of deaths. Why couldn't God have created a safer Earth for humans?

The assumption that the creation of humans in Gen1 and the creation of Adam in Gen2 are two depictions of the same event is the one thing that makes Genesis seem so disconnected with our modern view of earth's history. If Adam was not the first human then not only does the rest of the bible make...
