ABC is sponsoring a big conclave of scientists who are saying that this might be the last century of our civilization or even of the human race. See ABC News: Earth 2100: This Century Our Last?
At least people don’t believe in progress anymore. Notice how we now have a secular apocalyptic millennialism to go along with the religious kind.
Some scientists think we might survive, though, and keep evolving until we are all connected into a vast sphere surrounding the sun, whereupon we will go from galaxy to galaxy consuming everything we find. See this review of The Year Million. The supermind we will evolve into after a million years is described as being “so vast and unknowable that we might as well call it God.”
We get to be God! That’s been the fantasy ever since the Serpent put it into our minds at the very beginning.
