    Will Humans as a species survive/outlive earth?

    Technically: No
    Figuratively: Yes

    Reason I say that is because let's face it earth will be around for billions of years, maybe not as you would like or think "earth" should be as but it will be around. Know think about it if from billions of years we as a species don't kill ourselves then we will have either evolved to a state where we are all machines or we have evolved to a state where there are MANY MANY MANY subspecies or we have evolved as a species to a point where we are not technically humans anymore however we will technically be them as an ancestor.

    HOWEVER keep in mind this is a scenario where no big meteor has hit earth or aliens haven't seen us as a threat or we haven't offended them by mistake or anything


    Let me know what you think

    Did you forgot that Sun as we know it will eventually die out, so without our sun the earth wont survive as we know it now.

    They wont... Since this earth will probably die along with the sun.

    Well there is no way we will outlive the earth that's for sure.
    And we will just kill each other long before the earth gets destroyed

    Ye because the sun will die out tomorrow..
    It will die out in 2 billion years. Humans will have killed eachother way before.

    I am quite certain that technology will soon (Thousands, maybe millions years from now) be so advanced that we will live on different planets. Humans will continue to live even when the Earth 'dies'. I don't think that we will all kill eachother in the end, that's very unlikely.

    Everyone says we'll just kill each other beforehand but the more I think about that the more I realize how dumb that is. I'm sure world leaders are smart enough not to start a nuclear holocaust and even if they do, there will definitely be survivors. I feel like yes we will outlast the earth because by the time the earth is ready to die, we'll be long gone to another planet.

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    Doubt it, even with technology advancing Earth is dying and we'll only be consuming more resources further down the track. The sun is also heating up and will be able to keep life on Earth sustainable for less than a billion years.

    Apparentlyby 2050 there will be MORE PLASTIC then fish in our oceans.
    More people will have to starve in the future so people can eat. Currently 1 billion people are starving, also we will need to make a major breakthrough to not have more starving people because the consumption rate keeps going up but our production rate does not.

    I wouldn't doubt it, the trash piles in the ocean are huge.
    We don't need to make a major breakthrough, we simply should help third world countries with the food we have, considering we have more than enough.

    The movie Interstellar pretty much points this out well, on Earth, a blight takes crops down completely. You see in the movie the only thing they eat when Murph is grown up is corn. Only corn. No meat, or any other fruit or vegetable, because simply put they can't grow it. Animals are limited, there only comes to be a point when extinction happens.

    Honestly everything in the universe is a compound process. It starts slowly, and gets faster and faster as time goes by. Eventually there will be a peak in what we do and then bam, we'll run out. Another point to make is, it takes about 100,000 light years to cross our galaxy. We know thousands of potentially habitable planets, but we simply can't get there. There's a limit to how far a civilization can extend. It's called the Great Filter Theory. It's based off the fact that you cannot avoid an extinction event, naturally or technologically, no matter what happens. There's a limit to how far beings can advance. Any species that reaches such a level will die eventually.

    We won't outlive the Earth, if anything we'll have to move off of it within the next 10,000 years. Remember that everything is compound, never linear, so as a result, progress and resource usage will continually extend to points where the planet's drained of all natural resources. In the approximate 200,000 years humanity existed, gold turned from a commonly used stone to a precious rare material. That's not even counting the platinum group, like Rhodium, Platinum, Iridium, which all are even rarer of metals than gold and silver. In 10,000 years we'll be most likely be re-using old buildings just to get by to make new ones.
