Would you live your life differently if you found out that humanity would suddenly go extinct in 100 years?

(assume that nobody else knows and that you are unable to tell them what you know)

 

Just wondering.

Probably not... especially if I can't tell people what I know. The telling people the reason would be the thing that would possibly change my life.

You might have to word it differently, because I won't be around in 100 years as is, so why would my life change if I can't tell anybody. The only real answers I could see would be whether or not to have kids (and for me that's not relevent).

Who are you people kidding? Of course we would act differently. I seriously doubt any of us could process that kind of information and *not* have it impact how we conducted our day to day lives. It'd be like knowing that the story from the film 'Children of Men' was about to become a reality. You wouldn't do *anything* to protect yourself and your family from the unavoidable chaos sure to descend upon humanity?

 

Even if the extinction were to occur in an instant, and without warning, I doubt very much that any of us could act exactly the same as before. The whole way you view our purpose and time here on earth would be forever changed. I don't see any normal person shrugging that off. Hell, most people can't even remain calm if they get cut off on the freeway, receive a telemarketing call during dinner, or learn that their teenager is has become sexually active.

Do I know how/why we're going extinct, or just that it's going to happen?

 

If we're simply going to simply go "poof" and cease to exist, that is different than say, a horrible disease will wipe 100% of the human population from the face of the planet over a 5 year period.

 

If the former, probably wouldn't change anything. If it's the latter, I probably wouldn't have kids.

Good point. Well all be dead before then. Pro-choice mooslums will have found a way to repeal the 2nd Amendment, leaving us defenseless to their global warming-powered WMDs, followed by a ground invasion of zombified stem-cell cloned Nancy Pelosis.

 

Nice job, libs.
