After 10,000 years from today, will earth still be habitable and sun exist too?
10k years maybe blink of an eye for solar system, earth and sun but for us ordinary humans, it is beyond imagination. It's just hard to even think how humans would be in that timeframe

Society would've learn from past failures and made huge environmental advances. Minus all cell phone towers, and electrical cables surrounding our planet. Earth will have clean air, healthy living and sun shinning brighter than ever, a beautiful time for existence. Advancements all over the place.

I'm not sure. Check back with me in 5000 years.

No, the democrats will have destroyed the earth long before then.

In ten millennia, there would be no reason to suppose Earth would be uninhabitable if the future will be like the past has been. However, there are a few unknowns. We don't know how strong the effect humans will have on the planet will eventually be, although the fact that serious things have happened to the planet in the past suggests that it might be arrogant to suppose we're powerful enough to render it 100% uninhabitable. We also don't know if we're lucky not to have suffered some kind of cosmic disaster such as a sterilising gamma ray burst or asteroid strike more serious than anything we've faced in the past. Finally, something else might happen such as a mutation which enables phytoplankton to release chlorine from sea water and poison everything on the planet. This almost happened before with oxygen, which almost killed everything billions of years ago.

The sun will still exist, the probability that the Earth will still be habitable is another matter. Be safe.

10,000 years is about 0.0002% the age of the solar system, so in that context it's a negligible amount of time.

Yea, and another 10,000 years after that.
Weather man will kill themselves off by then, who knows.

Like any other surplus of individuals in any species, nature will strive to control an excess and return the population to a balance with its environment. Humans (with our big brains) have long attempted to avoid this and alter the effects of overpopulation by unnatural means; it can not go on forever. Eventually a natural occurrence will happen (either randomly or human induced) which will reduce the human population to what can be maintained in a balance with the environment, and no longer relay on pseudo-natural techniques. Timing TBA.

The Sun will not be noticeably changed for hundreds of millions of years. Earth will still be habitable for just as long.

The sun's future is pretty predictable, and the sun, as we know it, will still be around in 10,000 years. It will be a very very very long time before it starts to expand into a red giant and engulf the Earth.
10,000 years is a blink of eye in terms of geology and astronomy. So without some intervention (asteroid, comet, nuclear war, Kayne West's ego or Kim Kardashian's butt becoming independently sentient and taking over the planet, man made climate change), the Earth will be pretty much the way it is now, and was 10,000 years ago.
