How do you think life on Earth will cease to exist?

So many possibilities... war, asteroid, disease, zombies, "global warming", etc, etc.

Mutant meal worms...

there will always be life on earth, but it'll probably be bacteria and single cell guys that live in the ocean or those sweet tube worms and other stuff on the ocean floor

The earth will definitely cease to exist when Slippy stops thinking about it.

I think it will be from infectious disease contracted by the lack of washroom attendants, once they all quit their jobs from lack of tips.

A la The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy's Telephone Sanitizer and the demise of planet Golgafrincham).

What, too obscure? I worked hard on that. ;)

with a "poof"...or maybe a "Ka-blam". I think the Earth will just get swallowed up by the Sun when it expands into a red giant in a few billion years...but mankind will be gone long before that.

Terrorist Russian Chipmunks will overrun the world
decimating human kind. Least ways that's what the
Royal Mail says. So it must be true.
(Leah is probably closer to the truth)

The earth will be destroyed by the aliens, that are already here, plotting our demise.

Robert Frost had an opinion:

Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

To quote a cold war statement," There is no way they would bomb us and end all this confusion!"

It is already ending. The extended warranty expired some time ago and it has not been taken for the needed repairs. Just too expensive and not really worth it for obsolete planets.

Cease to exist? Are you sure it exists now?

With a little whimper:)

The human race will come last. But, I don't care, I still have smokes and beer, what more could a man want...wait, there was one more thing...what was it?

I remember, football!!

I don't think it will short of a sun supernova when the time comes... but I have little doubt that humans will not get that far.... Some stupid politician will wipe out the rest of us.... The question which of the whackos will start it and which will end it and when... and I include the regular list of whackos and the list of whackos that think that list of whackos are just whacko [if ya follow :-)].

Sol (our sun) us too small to go supernova, however, before it would do that anyway, it will have gone through a Red Giant phase, where it will expand to fill the solar system out to about the position of the Earth's orbit. Even though the red phase is considerably cooler than the present one, and though we'll certainly have access to a lot of solar energy, I don't think we are all that likely to develop an AC unit which will let us live comfortably on the surface of the sun. :-)

Actually, I think the Earth's core will eventually solidify, which will kill the earth's magnetic field. That will expose the planet to the full brunt of the sun's radiation, which will cook living things and evaporate the oceans, creating a runaway greenhouse effect turning the earth literally into Hell on earth.

Why not just read the bible? It tells how the story ends. Some of you believe the bible to be fiction, others believe it to be half and half, and others believe it to be the true and accurate God breathed Word of God.

Much of what is written in it has come to pass. Much of what is happening today in the world was written about first in the bible. Many people who actually pick up their copy and actually read it are not surprised with anything that is happening in the world today.

Our future is all layed out in black and white. What is your future? You have two choices... The answer is in the most unread book in the world and yet for some reason has sold the most copies in history.

So... How will the world end? What will happen when you die?

Somebody will find a true Good Fairy & wish for world peace. At that point every living thing on the planet will vanish. All life will end. And there will be nobody there to wish it all back.

When the DPC servers go down for a week and 1000s of angry DPCer's turn rabbid and start a random world wide killing spree. only then will life cease to exisit as we know it. once the killing is over, All DPCers will gather in one small village only to be burned down by Art. Art will die of loneliness and that will be the end.
