    Yes and no.

    Humanity as we know it today, in plague proportions, depleting the earth's resources, and despoiling the biosphere all in the name of hedonism, is doomed.

    However, after fossil fuels become too expensive to utilize, and civilization collapses, the population will shrink to the historical long-term sustainable level of a few million. Such a population in balance with the rest of the biosphere is potentially sustainable indefinitely. So in that sense you could say the future looks bright for humanity.

    Maybe not quite as bright as it looked 120 years ago.

    Not as a whole...  I think it *could*, if all nations observed the problems we have in maintaining the environment, if they were serious in seeking peace, and generally cared for the people within their borders...  

    We have the potential;  but we’re not heading in the right direction, is my opinion.

    That is why we call Utopia.

    No. Natural selection has been an abject failure on earth. Humans are clearly an evolutionary dead end. One has to wonder if the evolution of intelligence is ultimately its own destruction.

    Yes, as bright as an atomic explosion.

    You have got to kidding. In case you had not noticed, there's a raging pandemic escalating world wide right now AND the USA is TEARING itself apart and sliding into autocracy because Trump is totally insane. If be does not a have major debilitating stroke before November 3, the Antichrist MIGHT win.
