Have we failed as a species?

RE: Have we failed as a species?
Our species will be a distant memory in a billion years, even if our descendants -do- colonize mars.   Wink

You're probably right, although, some animals (some reptiles, I think), have largely maintained their form over a 100 million years or more.  I have read that the sperm count among men is falling, and so, we may be forced to resort to cloning someday, or, have a human race that is perhaps all women if the Y chromosome should disappear???

It's hard to say. But look at how far we've come!

I don't think our species have good chance of surviving even 10 thousand years.  If things go well, we would enhance ourselves with genetic engineering and implanted cybernetics to such a degree it would be silly to say our descendants 10 thousand years hence would still be the same specie as their barbarous trump electing ancestors.  But more likely we would have died out as a consequence of electing trump or another trump like piece of shit to positions in control of major nuclear arsenals.

Yeah, electing a trump would have been unthinkable just a few decades ago.

Human extinction?

Working on it...
There is nothing better in life than lying next to the one you love.

And they don't know that you love them.

Or that you're in their house again.
