Human Extinction Mechanisms

While there are many ways humans could become extinct, the vast majority of those are either extremely unlikely and/or beyond our control. For example, a massive asteroid impact may trigger mass starvation but some people will survive thanks to technology. There's nothing we can do if a black hole comes our way (and it's extremely unlikely anyway).

The probability of human extinction in the current generation due to natural causes is practically zero.
The probability of human extinction in the current generation due to man made causes is very high.

Thus, the focus is on emerging manmade technologies which will clearly present a human extinction threat, namely:

Each of these is discussed in separate sections. Please just click on one of the links above.

This website on human extinction is new, and very small. It is hoped that people from the general public will help me develop this website. One way to do this is by participation in the public forums.

Another way is to email me or use other means of contact as noted in the Contact Author link of this website.

This website is about
realistic human extinction
threats in our generation,
mainly genetics,
biotechnology, and
It also discusses the
realities of Artificial
General Intelligence
by computer advances
in 20-30 years, the
so-called Singularity.
