With the way we're going, 500 years is pushing it IMO. No way we'll last 50K--we don't learn from our mistakes, and we change too slowly to survive (mental change, not physical). We don't adapt...we destroy.
sure ! we can make a uber big space ship with plants, factory's everyday life (with an edge ofcourse ) and dump all the crap we get flying in space when the earth is ruined,.. a more clean idea would be better thought but i just mean ofcourse we can survive alot,.. we can think of something right?
Well definitely survive 2012 as thats been blown out of proportion, its just the end of a cycle (the earth goes through many cycles) according to researchers. So unless we destroy ourselves, then I recon so.
we have a lot of things we need to fix and our politicians need to get over themselves and realize the people are the powerful ones. They might be able to smack one of us down like a fly but when we rise up as a nation the earth trembles.
