Will technology end the human race or lead to a utopia of sorts?
I don't believe it will result in either.
Humanity cannot live in utopia because we are naturally inclined to solve disagreements with violence. They might be able to become united for a short period of time, but there will still be conflict.
Humanity will develop technology to get off Earth and expand across the universe, thus eliminating the possibility of anything, (technology, invasion, or disaster) putting an end to the human race.
I would like to believe that one day our species will graduate from our primative state and become a Type 1 and eventually Type 3 Civilization (as established by Prof. Michio Kaku). Certainly, technology has the ability to bring us into utopia: Tesla's ionospheric electricity, green energy, etc. Notice that those exact forms of technology are utterly ignored by corporations and politicians. I don't know if there will be a nuclear Holocaust. My guess is it will be much more anti-climactic. We will probably all either starve to death, perhaps freeze in an Ice Age when the Holocene Period ends, or experience a massive pandemic.
The thought of a true utopia, to me, seems unrealistic. Kind of in the idea of why a truly communistic government won't work. Humans are competitive by nature and want to have more than others, with people always striving to be better, we would never really be able to stop violence, arguments, and settle feuds in civilized ways. I believe that technology could give us the opportunity to live in a utopia like atmosphere, but will never actually happen due to the human race. As for the end of the human race, I don't believe that we will actually ever become extinct because of technology. The human race is definitely changing, and it will forever be changing, and in a hundred years from now, humans will be totally different than what we are now. By that, I'm referring to the possibilities of cloning, stem cell research, and many other technologically advanced sciences we're researching will be fully developed and will probably change the human race in a huge way. All I can say is that I am happy I probably won't be alive to see that happen.

Are we, as the human race, giving God more than he can handle?With all the violence, wars, moral declines and constant breaking of the commandments, when will he say, "That's it! Lights out!" Are we pushing the envelope? I'm sure he has his limits. It's scary when you think about it.
