With the ever growing billions of people on the planet, the harm we are doing to earth ever growing automation etc.

How many more people can this planet sustain? Another few billion? What are all these people going to do as automation takes over and there are less and less jobs and resources?

Will there be another world war or pandemic to keep our numbers in check, will we colonize the solar system and beyon or climate change kill many of us off?

Some virus will wipe out alot of the population, they just havent invented it yet, I genuinely think its more likely to be man made than a natural mutation of something else

I dont want to go full alwx jones but the world is massively over populated and theres alot of very wealthy ppeople who want to proyect their interests
So i dont think my idea is that crazy

'Straya, cunt.
Seriously though, that simple retard, haggis mocked me and called me a moron (while we were still ‘forum mates’) a few years ago when I stated that it’s a high probability that food and water are going to be the biggest problems that the majority of the entire world will face in the next twenty years if the population keeps growing as it has. We were at saturation point then, the world cannot produce enough food whilst being able to “breath” to feed the entire population with the amount of fresh water available, that’s without factoring in climate change.

I wouldn't be surprised if that happened, there needs to be some serious changes over the next few decades.

Extinction eventually, there once was a time when mankind didn't exist, it will end up that way again soon.

Remember guys, death IS inevitable.

With history and science showing us how many creatures have gone extinct in geological time, I think it is inevitable we will follow suit. At the very least, we will evolve into some other species, hopefully one less prone to violence over such things as religion, territory, natural resources, etc.

We're just lucky that the elements are just right for us to survive at the moment, a slight change in the suns life cycle could cause the earth to freeze over or cause the oceans to boil and that'll be the end. Or even something more random like a massive asteroid or a comet, it wouldn't even need to hit us, just by passing us by it's gravity could jolt us out of our orbit. Or if something happened to the moon, we'd end up with disasters of epic proportions.

It's amazing how every tiny thing that has happened in the gazillion of years gone by has enabled us to be here. It's crazy and mind blowing. Can't get my head round it honestly.

The randomness of life is mad, like my Dad was due to start a job in another town which meant moving away but he got injured in a car crash and during his recovery he met my Mum and they started dating, I asked him once "so if you hadn't been driving like a cunt and binned your car, you'd never have met Mum and wouldn't have created an absolute fucking delight like me?"

Even in developed western societies it's a case of everyone for themselves no matter what fake front people out on to theatrically be pleasant to one another.

And then you have places like Brazil and Africa where people are sliced open whilst alive.

At some point there will be a domino effect. Something will run out causing a cascade effect of chaos until we end up destroying ourselves forcing us back in caves until the earth finally fails to support us.

Got to be space travel and other planet colonization

Growing up in the early 70s they speculated we would have bases on the moon by the year 2000, I guess after one of the shuttle losses they dialed back on human exploration but it seems to me now in the last say 5-7 years they have really ramped it up again

I know in places like Australia and Las Vegas, they are already using recycled water, got to be the rule for kids growing up on Mars or moonbases
