You're fully responsible for your own opinion.

For me... I trust the human species will wipe itself out shortly (shrotly in geological terms, though not in astronomy terms).

Just think about the ways life on earth could end:

Nuclear war -- Your style of fire and bang, Ragnarok, Armageddon, etc etc as predicted throughout every age on Earth ;0

Asteroid/Catacysmic Catastrophe (like what created the moon, or squished mars or maybe killed dinos)

Outpopulating resources faster than technology can improve them leading to extinction event
(bioengineered warfare eliminates humanity)

Nanotechnology for immortality triggering above, or nanotech for 'carbon processors' runs amok and destroys *all* living things on the earth or otherwise poisons humanity off (sterility by the population controller wanna-bes!)

etc. etc.

The ways in which humans can kill themselves off way outnumber natural causes of extinction.
Of those, the 'silent killers' such as bioengineering, immortality, etc. have no fire or bang to them, and they, in their turn, outnumber the non-silent endings (war, etc.).

So in all probablity, in my way of thinking, the human race will quietly remove itself eventually from the cosmos... which, if similar logic is applied to any intelligent sentient life in the universe, goes a long way to resolving the Fermi's Paradox: [en.wikipedia.org]


Sad, cynical, pessimistic... but ultimately seemingly logical/realistic.

You have your belief/opinion, I have mine ;0 'nuff said.
