    On topic though, worlds are rather durable things, are we discussing the end of the human race, or the actual physical end of this planet?

    Life has been around for about 3.5Ma. Even if there was a mass extinction, it would evolve again, as it always has. Hence, 512-812 is too soon.

    If we destroy ourselves, a life form will evolve which could survive the conditions we leave behind. That's the way life works.

    Jesus was asked this question by his apostles.

    You will find his answer in Matthew 24: 3-14!

    3As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"

    4Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. 5For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,[a]' and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.

    9"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
    Doesn't really answer that much, does it?

    Bloody Jesus, getting all airy-fairy on us...

    Well if it's true that humans have a built in want to help each other, then the earth will come to an end by natural causes (unless in some far distance future humanity decides to drag the earth out of harms way). If we are just cynical gits who would rather put all our energy into killing each other, then I give us 100 years...maximum.

    I think the world will end about 144 000 AD. (hey, i'm an optimist)

    Certainly, there may be a population collapse among humans much sooner (perhaps in a century or so) due to overpopulation and strain on resources (and war).

    But people won't die out. Heavens no. We're like cockroaches.

    If you're standing on an ocean beach, with your eyes about 3 feet above sea level, the end of the world is about 5 miles.

    Technically, i dont think it wil ever end. Inevitabley, the human race will die, but perhaps we are the problem with the earth? Therefore, it will continue living in relative harmony until another organism evolves and destructs it again.

    As far as humanity is concerned, there are thousands of years left.
