I am inclined to agree, with all of that. If the world is going to end, it won't be humans.

As my band director once said, "If the world is going end, it's going to start in Muncie."

All my pauper's baubles lay on a midden heap,
I cannot see the sunrise beyond the clouds that creep,
and all my gold horizons and the promises to keep,
are shuttered 'tween these walls until with faith I make the leap.
I wonder if the fall will be as gentle as they said,
I wonder if I'll drift to sleep if I call the world my bed,
and as I wonder someone softly whispers in my ear,
if you listen carefully the way will be made clear.
You do not have to throw away your hopes out with your fears,
You can wax triumphant and still keep what you hold dear,
Only one boon I ask of you and then you'll have your prize...
A standard contract for your soul and you will never die.
Your towers will push through the sky and touch the farthest star,
Your cities will be flawless jewels that Time will never mar,
And distance will be meaningless and Love will never end,
And you will be like Gods... you'll no longer just pretend.
But Sir I ask, will not this make me wicked just like you?
Won't all my hubris rise like bile to strangle me anew?
Oh, curse it all, mortality is too bitter a fruit,
I'll bind and gag my conscience and my soul will follow suit.
So it was that Man had made his final choice,
To burn the roots of humbleness and still his inner voice,
And as the day of Judgment grows closer by the hour,
Oblivious he drinks his health on top his Babel tower.

In short, we suck donkey balls and will soon destroy ourselves by cruel and unusual means. :P

This is the way the World ends
This is the way the World ends
This is the way the World ends
Not with a bang, but a whimper

Honestly, my ultimate fear of the destruction of the world, is just the simple, old theory: we run out of supplies. As I once read, the earth's virtual capacity is about 500,000,000. After that, the planet starts to slowly lose it's resources, and as more humans are introduced, the faster the rate it will decline. We're already far past the peak of our planet. I wouldn't be surprised if it would happen in our great^37 grandchildren wouldn't have anything to live off at all. But, not my problem, back to burning tires, whilst chopping down some trees and littering all at the same time :P

Just thought I'd let you know, The H1N1 Swine Flu is now a pandemic according to the WHO.

Aye, but they're 3 weeks behind the mob I work for. There is still a far greater chance of injury from a drunk or otherwise impaired driver than a whole menagerie of flu's.
Wake me up when we get to Nessie flu.

I don't think the world or humans are going to end. Humans will evolve and adapt to our surroundings so as long as the universe stays in existence, then people will.

Humans rarely adapt to their surroundings, if ever.

Then, how did humans become the dominant specie on the planet? Our surrounding favored intelligence, so we adapted to an intelligent species.

By forcing the environment to change to suit our desires.

That's actually a form of adapting. Like bird changes the tree to make a nest to live in.

I'd think of it as the bird using the tree, humans would cut, burn shape and even remove the tree. Everything the bird does changes only the location of the nesting material.
