Do you think we'd still survive in a 100 years?

Well, I’ve been thinking about the world ending in 2012, and how everyone says it isn’t true. But do you think we will still be alive in 80 years, or 100 years?? Or do you think the world will end before then? What do you think?

"In a one hundred years"?

Well, sure. The world will be a bit different a century from now, mostly in unfortunate ways. A lot of species will be extinct then. Climate change will reverberate around the globe, desiccating some areas and inundating others, and temperatures will be more extreme than they are today. But yes, humanity will still be here–UNLESS we somehow unleash nuclear armageddon in the meantime.

When I was growing up, nuclear disaster was a very scary possibility. Two big superpowers faced each other with scary mega-arsenals, and (seemingly) it would only take a single cascade of bad fortunes or bad decisions to send the world into an unrecoverable wasteland. If you’re curious, watch the British movie "Threads" for what that felt like in the early ’80s. Or watch the American movie "The Day After" for what optimistic people felt nuclear war would be like. God damn, that was a scary time.

But anyway, it is just possible some kind of nuclear ugliness could be invoked by terrorist groups or desperate renegade countries or something. But barring that, no. The whole 2012 thing is baseless–when you actually research the claims made, you find they evaporate on close examination. We have no reason to think that disaster will strike in ANY given year, much less 2012 specifically.

Tell you what–make a note of this question you’ve asked. When 2013 dawns, think back on all the hype you’ve heard about, and consider how it’s turned out to be one of the literally hundreds of doomsday predictions that have been made, and failed (obviously) in human history. And come back to Y!A and other places and help calm the fears of those who have been panicked by the latest doomsday prediction.

It’s kinda hard to tell. None of us can really know when it’ll end. I’m kinda sure that 2012 thing is faulty though.

Sure we will. We will always find a way to survive.

If our civilization ends the cause will be nuclear war, the awakening of our technology (think Skynet), the accidental release of a super biological weapon (super virus) or some assault by aliens who’ve had enough of us.

It definitely won’t be because of some overhyped Mayan myth or some apocalypse foretold by religion/cult

Humanity has been through several world ending scenario many times over, ei World War 1 & 2 and the threat of nuclear war during the Cold War. But if you are talking about present day people, like you specifically, probably not since we would died of old age and some other death defining scenario. There has been several end of the world prediction and all has been proven wrong time after time. 2012 is no different and has been wrongly interpreted as the date the world end. Anyone can make a calender like the one we use to hang on our refrigerator and just because the calendar end at the end of December does not mean the end of the world will happen.

No, I don’t think 2012 will be the end of the world. But I do think that the human race will very likely find some way to kill itself off soon. It’s a matter of numbers-vs-resources. As the Earth’s population rapidly increases, so does the likely hood of such an event or series of events happening. I don’t know if it will be 10 years or 200 years, but I think we’re all pretty much screwed, and I have a feeling there isn’t a chance in hell of changing that. We seem to be way beyond the point of know return here.

"We"… as in you and I…?

Highly unlikely.

According to age rules of Y! Answers, you are at least 13 years old.
I myself can claim that I am 23 years old.

In 100 years, you will be at least 113 years old, and I myself may be 123 years old…should we still be surving.

The longest unambiguously documented lifespan is 122 years.

I would need to live to be a year older than that world record age if I were to survive in 100 years.

Who knows? 100 years seems highly possible for us to exist, but we might have changed the world into a nuclear polluted wasteland. Maybe our machines bring too much waste into the environment, and several of our resources die out because of their loss of habitat. Since 2012 is definitely not happening, we’ll live beyond that. As long as we keep Earth sustained, clean and conserve energy, we can exist for a pretty long time.
But there are other effects. What if an asteroid hits the Earth? Will we be forced to evacuate? Or will we die in the armageddon and our descendants will be cockroaches? I once watched this movie called Life After People on History Channel. I’d suggest getting the DVD from the library and watching it.

If by "world will end" you mean something that would physically destroy the planet, then no. Nothing’s coming our way that is big enough to do that.

If you mean something that would kill everyone on the planet, I still don’t think it will happen, but I can’t say it definitely won’t. There is always a chance that within that time frame, we could get hit by a "killer asteroid", there’s a minuscule chance that a near enough star could hit us with a gamma ray burst, or something like that. But if you asked me to bet every dime I had on the outcome, I’d bet on them not happening.

Of course, we do have enough nuclear weapons scattered all over the world to take everyone out, but I don’t think even that is too likely. In 65 years, the only time nuclear weapons have been used was during WW 2. Other than that, we’ve managed to go that long without using even one of them, so I’m optimistic that we could go 100 years without setting them all off.

We will likely not be here after about another 350 years,or maybe much less.
