I have been wondering about the long-term future of the human race from an evolutionary stand-point By long-term future I'm talking about thousands or millions of years from now.
It's hard to know what the long -term future will bring but curious what you think will happen.
Do you think that:
1) The human race as we know it today will become extinct because humans will evolve into some other species that's better equipped to handle its environment. If you think this will happen, what do you imagine the new species to be like?
2) The human race will become extinct and there will be no other species to follow it. Humans will become an evolutionary dead-end. If you think this will happen, when do you think it will be? What would be the primary cause of humans demise?
3) The human race will remain and not evolve into any new species. There may be other intelligent beings out there which humans helped create but this is not evolution.
