How will this world be destroyed?
    #878805 - 09/11/02 07:45 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I think it could be by pollution. But we will probably have killed ourselfs through pollution , before the world itself will be annihilated.
Or we could turn around and really do something about pollution, save ourselfs before the sun will explode ultimately.

Or maybe a meteor will hit the planet.

Because, our planet at long last will one day end. And there is nothing we can really do about it. Pollution we can handle, but if something would come from outside our planet and would damage our planet. We would not be able to do shit about it.

So why the hell don't we invest more in space projects? I believe because we are currently living in a information/profit based sociaty. That only looks front or down. And almost never around or up.

But this is not helping us. Our primal urge is survival, so why aren't we making any real fast powered combined preparations? Because we are to buzy with other things that have affect now. And we are not looking towards the future to prevent things from happening.

More like you posted fairly late at night in the middle of the week.

I guess it matters what you would consider "destroyed" to mean. Pollution won't do it, because whenever it gets bad enough to start actually killing people they find a way to fix it, even if that means just closing off an area. As far as a meteor, it could be bad, but it has happened before and there is still life here. Volcanic eruptions like Mt. Pinatubo and Krakatoa are comparable to a fairly good sized meteor impact, and they had pretty minimal impact on the human population overall.

You need to realize that the world is a *very* big place, so big it is hard to truly imagine.

One way it might end (all life) is a supernova a bit too close. Betelgeuse is only about 450 light years away. If it went bang the amount of gamma rays and X rays would be enough to cause a lot of problems. But there are organisms we know would survive even that.

Eventually the Sun will become a red giant (a few billion years from now). The heat from that will be sufficient to boil the oceans away and destroy any life.

Happy mushrooming!

I meant in the extreme. Pollution over the limit causing massive global warming and fooding of the planet. And so on...

You need to realize that the world is a *very* big place, so big it is hard to truly imagine.

The bigger the planet the more to destroy... The bigger the planet the more people to destroy it.

And an specially equiped underground hiding place would not help? There must be ways to survive something like that...

Eventually the Sun will become a red giant (a few billion years from now). The heat from that will be sufficient to boil the oceans away and destroy any life.

Only way to survive that would be if we start leaving early before the universe has expanded to far for us to ever get to a safe place.

I don't know about total destruction... the human species will survive one way or another, even if that means retreating underground, flying away in space ships, entering a tran-dimensional portal, etc... I'm leaning towards the latter myself.  :grin:

Almost certainly.

Like you said, humanity will probably kill itself, but the planet with get smashed like any other at some point. If it happens to survive the next 50 billion years, then it will be destroyed when the Sun swells to a red giant and engulfs it.

Our primal urge IS survival, but we still, in general, don?t give a fuck about humanity?s future. This is because people like me and you and don?t have to build space stations or exodus projects to survive. We only have to build them if we want future generations to survive. Who cares about them? :smirk:

I care. I want other people to be able to enjoy mushrooms, sex, the unexplainable for ever and ever... Till the end of it all...

Your pic looks like (from an ants point of view) the top of an ice cream falling on the ground...  :grin:

I think times will start to get ruff sooner then most think.  I might seem insane but I believe something from the sky will come down and clean the earth of everything bad.  We will think it's bad and try to stop it but in doing that we get our asses kicked.  After that those that were smart enough will start a new population.  Those left over will be very small....  :frown:
