    Every atom in each of our bodies originated from inside of a dying star. So it's apropro that something from amongst the stars come back for us. That's why I vote for a comet or asteroid to be my killer.

    Not humans or whatever we evolve to.

    We have to remember the technological advances we are going to make in the next few hundred years.

    Do you sneak you a little Ol' Grandad at times? My pawpaw would sneak and get his "Ol' Grandad" and make him a little "hot toddy" from time to time.

    I like Woodford Reserve every now and then, but again, don't tell the wifey. Forgot my Sapphire and tonic too.

    If it is going to be something natural, then I guess with the big bang idea, we will be too far away from the sun to sustain life. I thought that the earth was continuing to move farther away from the sun as a result of the big bang.

    I wonder how the environment will be impacted when all the continents bang into each other.

    I'm not sure what will happen first.

    I believe God will eventually destroy the earth but maybe it was his intention to have it be one of the natural theories we've heard about.

    There have been 5 mass extinction events in the history of this planet. It seems reasonable to assume there are to be more. I completely believe that humans will be the cause of the next one.

    Truth should shape people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.

    Your science here isn't accurate (Big Bang, continents). I can give you some info there, if you are interested.

    Sure. I really don't know much about it. I could have sworn that eventually the continents will eventually crash into each other. The whole pangea continental drift thing.
