    If mankind progresses enough with space travel, mankind may not have to go extinct.

    Only if an Eternal God becomes bored with His creation, would mankind become extinct.

    In the concept of a creator, that has been for eternity. Who has allowed the world to evolve, for billions of years. That cherishes mankind above all else. He won't let us become extinct.

    "See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.

    (Isaiah 65:17 NIV)

    For, "ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF, BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER."

    (1 Peter 1:24-25 NIV)

    The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.

    (Isaiah 40:8 NASB)

    Genetic analysis proves the human race almost DID go extinct about 180 thousand years ago, our genetic diversity is small compared to other great apes and mammals.
    That analysis suggests the human race was down to maybe 20 people at one point in time. The older race, Neanderthals, DID go extinct and there is no reason to think we can't follow in their footsteps to extinction ourselves.

    Space travel MIGHT save us if we get off our scientifically lazy butts and actually make a space bearing civilization, including interstellar travel as far away from Earth as possible.

    Stay on Earth, extinction is inevitable.

    In the concepts you propose, and as we see how distructive mankind can be to itself. What makes you think getting off the planet will make any difference?

    Mankind will not go extinct. Atheists will.

    Screen out the stupid people with an IQ test. Make up some bull$h!t statement that everyone on board the space ship will have to help fly the thing from time to time and so only the clever will be allowed on. Then fly away, safe in the knowledge that the only damage the fundies can do with their guns, knives, stakes, torches, nukes, etc... is to themselves ... on EARTH. 🙂

    Alternately, they may find the only practical way to do interstellar travel is to have frozen embryo's at say LN2 temps and the journey may take 10,000 years but science enables the ship and everything in it to have a lifespan ten times that if needed, so at journey's end, the embryo's are warmed up and put in an incubator and babies are 'born', raised at first by robots with all the good stuff to learn from old Earth but none of the bad and then 20 years later, they have a civilization on the new planet and people start having kids the normal way and now they don't have all that neurotic baggage of the old civilization and the robots instilled tolerance, compassion, and so forth in the first generation of kids while building the infrastructure for adults who would live in whatever they designed when the kids grow up.

    It was down to 8 people just after the flood of Noah's day.

    Genetic diversity studies totally falsifies that myth. The low diversity happened WAY before your time frame, almost 200,000 years ago. Don't care much if you believe it or not.

    They must have dug that 200,000 years figure out of their ass.
