It’s hard to argue that when all is said and done, humanity will destroy itself.  Yes imagethere are all kinds of potential  calamities that could bring us to our demise but  they really are long shots.  Meteors crashing to the Earth and annihilating life in the blink of eye has been done before.  Super volcanoes blotting out the sun and smothering the planet with ash and toxic gas is oh so Holly Wood.  But when it comes right down to it though, life on planet Earth for Homo Sapien is going to consist of a lot of events – starvation, war, disease, ecological catastrophes, over-population, energy deficits, etc.  And every one of these will have our own DNA all over them.  We have now reached a point in human history where we can create massive change in the blink of an eye – both good and bad.  Looking back we will probably mark the early 21st century as the beginning of the end of the dominance of humankind upon planet Earth.  I foresee humans existing for 1000s more years but not in the way we have become accustomed to.  It is also very possible that we will rise once again to assert our supremacy over all other creatures.  I only hope that the second time we can learn from our self-centered ways and figure out how to live in harmony with all life.
