Did you even need other choices for this? I thought "ourselves" before I even came in here. I say we just hurry up and create highly advanced robots, so they can hurry up and destroy us, for our own good.

"Ourselves" is kind of inane when all four of the other options are human-caused things that still fall within the category of "ourselves".

And out of those four, only one presents any kind of threat to the entire human species: "Nuclear Power" and "Religious Terrorism" are overblown scare story non-threats belonging to the same kind of category as "Shark Attacks", while "Global Warming"might if things get really bad cause a few hundred million deaths and an economic crash of never-before-seen proportions, which is not the same category of thing human extinction by robot apocalypse.

Here are some options you could have listed instead that would make more sense than "Global Warming", nevermind any of the others:

- Global Thermonuclear War (I mean, really, you didn't include this one? How long ago did Fallout 4 come out?)

- Asteroid Impact

- Natural or Bioengineered Pandemic

- Yellowstone Eruption

- Azathoth Wakes

- The Rapture

- The Velocirapture

- Gamma Ray Burst

- Rogue Black Hole

- The Computer Simulating The Universe Crashes/Reboots

- Zombies

- All Of The Above

- Something Even Worse

Why is "stupidity" a different option from "ourselves"? Is the specific catastrophe supposed to be caused by someone/thing else being stupid? Like some really stupid alien drunk-driving his spaceship and causing a mass extinction when he crashes?

None of the above. It's antibiotic-resistant pathogens and potential pandemics.

At this point human stupidity is the biggest thing that can cause the mass extinction of us from anything like a bioengineered pandemic to running out of resources and there are 2 things that I can think of that would be out of our control, an asteroid of catastrophic proportions, or the second coming of Jesus.

There is no one who can hurt you more than yourself.

At this moment in time, probably religious terrorism. But all of those things are a serious threat. We just keep finding more creative ways to wipe ourselves out.
