We already used that one to explain the disappearance of the dinosaurs. How about something more imaginative?

There was one I mentioned some time ago, about a star emitting a huge amount of gamma rays. If it had been pointed at use, we wouldn't be talking about stuff like this. We'd all be dead.

My bet is on the Death Star.

But then again, there are humans on the Death Star, so I guess it would not be the end of the Human race.

Err, Umm, please don't take this the wrong way, but I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. It seems rather cryptic. Would you mind explaining your valuable point of view with a bit more clarity?

It's purposely cryptic..

The world is changing and this is a accelerated time and in that time all the idea's on the planet will evolve to a new type of level.. this is my understanding.. this will take place most likely before 2040.. help?

Nope I think that was Yellowstone.

BTW. I just read this:

The newest research, led by Gerta Keller of Princeton University in New Jersey, and Thierry Adatte of the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, uses evidence from Mexico to suggest that the Chicxulub impact predates the K-T boundary by as much as 300,000 years.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? What is the world population right now? What do you think is going to put an end to us eventually? How will it happen and how long will it take? I have a sense that our technology and interdependence is going to be part of our downfall. We are all so connected that if the power grid goes down, we're all without electricity. Same goes with our fuel and food. Has anyone studies this? What are the theories?

The human species, I believe, will never be wiped out because you have indigenous people ( i.e Dogon tribe) who are scattered around the earth who are very in tune with nature and can make preparations to save themselves in advance; however, 90% of the domesticated people (us) definitely will be wiped out if a natural cataclysm were to occur. Its our own fault; we are too disconnected from nature; we are too concentrated in the same areas, and we spend too much time caught up in fantasy's ( T.V, Video Games).

Anyhow, what I'm looking at right now, that the news is not reporting, is how the sun is so quiet! It's in a extreme solar minimum. I believe when it wakes up its quite possible we will see a sun like no other! More or less all of our satellites will be in jeopardy if the sun decides to fling out some serous X flairs... Also some people believe that the heightened level of energy from the sun causes man as a whole to behave more aggressively so I'm expecting to see more turbulent times in the near future...

In this plane of existence I believe evil will never go away because this evil is within our DNA. If you believe the story of Noah the earth was wiped clean and only Noah and his family survived but later generations evil made its debut with Nimrod.

Hmmm. I'd recommend skipping the cryptic stuff because it really doesn't make any sense.

Okay, let's see...
- The world is changing.
- Accelerated time.
- All ideas on the planet will evolve to a new type of level.
- Might happen before 2040.

Sorry, it doesn't help. Can you explain why all that would cause the demise of the human race? And how? Is this all leading up to Skynet?

You said earlier, "as for somewhat real demise's.. to be honest if I have my way, leave that to me.. I will do it many way's.."
Do what in many ways? And why should it be left up to you?
