I would like to know how people think that we are going to go out as a human race. You could also give other ideas, like a tragedy that will wipe out most of us, or if we do not meet our demise... what will happen with the human race?

I made this because there is a lot of talk about the end of the world on the internet. Like different theories about Dec 21, 2012 and what the Mayans believed, or a massive pole shift. I want to know what people think of this stuff.

For me, there is an impending tragedy that not too many people are aware of. Its called a supervolcano. There are only a few scattered around the world. They go off every million years or so, and the biggest one we know of was theorized to have 100,000 times the power of the largest nuke ever detonated (Tsar Bomba). Right now, the Yellowstone Caldera is set to go off, and if it does, much of the United Stated will be covered in ash, and the world may slop into an ice age. This will cause problems, because there is already a food shortage and an ice age wont help. The armies of the world would assemble to take whats left. There would be an ultimate war for habital land closer to the equator that would result in an inhabitable Earth (more nukes).

Another supervolcano called Lake Toba, erupted 75,000 years ago and wiped out 60 percent of the worlds human population. There is another supervolcano in Colorado that is 2 times that size. (althought it hasn't erupted in 26 million years).
tell me what you think!

there is alot of theories going about the end of the world..i saw a program on national geographic abt how the huge amount of methane clarate trapped at the bottom of the ocean because of decomposition and how its going to be release if the water temperature is going to keep rising.it already happening now and the small release of methane is what causing global warming and if it gets hotter,its a matter of time that it reaches critical point..and to cut it short we are screwed...
since this theory is already in motion,i guess its the most probable.

i heard about the toba castastrophe theory but its just my 2 cents but since it happened before,it did wipe out the world population but we are still standing right?the human race survived that supervolcano eruption.so i dont think we would be wiped out that way...

It'll end in a Nuclear holocaust probably... I mean its too cool a situation not to end it that way! (Mr.Obama's finger will be hovering over that big red button)

Hmmm hard to say really, if you think about it humanity has been at the center of the cross hair since the beginning. I mean we have had some close calls. Did you know that in 1995 World War III almost broke out over a simple mistake? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_rocket_incident
So overall i think humanity will survive in one way or another no matter the disaster(Unless of course the world literally blows up/falls apart).

Another thread about the end of the world. Scientists in the 1990s have been saying that the world is going to end as soon as the 20th century starts, but it didn't.

One thing that we can pretty much be sure about is that nukes aren't too much more powerful that they used to be. Without nuclear testing (which most countries have stopped) its hard to advance that kind of technology.

sounds like ragnarok to me.



45. Brothers shall fight | and fell each other,
And sisters' sons | shall kinship stain;
Hard is it on earth, | with mighty whoredom;
Axe-time, sword-time, | shields are sundered,
Wind-time, wolf-time, | ere the world falls;
Nor ever shall men | each other spare.

56. In anger smites | the warder of earth,--
Forth from their homes | must all men flee;-
Nine paces fares | the son of Fjorgyn,
And, slain by the serpent, | fearless he sinks.

57. The sun turns black, | earth sinks in the sea,
The hot stars down | from heaven are whirled;
Fierce grows the steam | and the life-feeding flame,
Till fire leaps high | about heaven itself

I think it would be mutation...
... Human race would come to an end... when the last human died out....
... evolving into a whole new stronger race compared to human....
Evolving is a must to help us gain adaptability to survive in a whole new condition ... its a rule of natural selection

dunno really...at the rate things are going today (war, diseases, etc) human kind might end quicker than we think....

maybe a strong race, almost all animals are based on strength.
but we humans have intelligence. it's hard to have an specy that has more intelligent than the humans.
and if there is a new specy if it's too dangerous, we will capture. We have massive amounts of people.
HAHAHAHHA HUMANS ROCKS!

IDK about mutations... Most just kill the organism off and when they don't its a small mutation. It takes many many mutations to make an organism a new species. Besides, evolution usually comes about more by natural selection.
