                                        When all humans die Earth will slowly get normal. Other animals will evolve into humans and find deadly remains and learn from us.

                                                                              It wont be a combination of anthropomorphic and natural. Humans are afterall subservient to nature, even if it attempts to defy it. If we end ourselves, its as far as we were meant to go. I for one would prefer for humankind to go extinct with minimal negative impact on other macro-organisms. Even if half the macro-orgranisms or all go down with humankind, bacteria, viruses will survive and mutate. Another few million to billions of years and everything will be buried, including humankind's radioactive and chemical wastes, to be rediscovered and utilized to synthesize the same shit by another advancing species capable of using tools and manipulation of it's environment. The human race is just replaced by something else nature has elected or in this case created from the bacterial and viral remnants of a species that was far better off erased than extant. Can't say if there is an afterlife or not, but the continuance of human life within this physical level is a blasphemy to all sensible aesthetics. My hypothesis is the ice sheets become excess water and an Earth that probably will have normal temperatures in excess of 150-200 degrees will do the job. Technology is ALL centered on one thing- FInancial capital, as such humankind is notorious for being short sighted and not being capable of long term processing models as far as foresight...Perhaps an evolution would fix that, but technology has permitted humankind to become, dumb, lazy, uninspired, and entranced, thus incapable of reaping the gains that our predecessors imagined would be gained from our technological growth. The species will bite the bullet before 2100, which I wont live to see, but can't come soon enough. Perhaps nature's intention was for us to create something technological that outlives us, since all technology stems from man that is of nature, and utilizes the Earth itself in it's production. Thus we were just a tiny grain of sand in a larger beach of nature honing and perfecting the production of organisms from biological as we understand it to technological to us (but perhaps natural to what ever it is we influenced the creation of through technological means)..Does not DNA and RNA resemble some sort of self assembling microscopic machines with their own intelligence? Of course I digress on this. I invite what will come to pass, even if im not around to see it, because humankind is sick of humankind, so how the hell does it expect to survive or cling to life?

It kinda sounds like philosophy, but actually lacks even the slightest hint of merit. Because no, I am not a random sample from every human that will ever live. I am, most decidedly, the product of causality. My pop and mom had some alone time, then their genes happened to mix in a particular fashion. Flash forward nine months, I was born, and then subjected to a host of environmental factors, all of which was a part of reality in this time frame (early 80s onward until today). And viola: me. Had i been born to different parents a hundred thousand years into the future, that would not have been me, but a different person. It would not have been "me" in any meaningful way. The probability of me existing hinged on factors like parent's having working reproductive organs, not the fate of some hypothetical other person that might or might not be born in the far future. The doomday argument hinges on the idea that somewhere is a big jar where every human that will ever live sits as just waits, and whenever someone is born, a random human is picked from the jar. I would very much like to see the argument for why this is the case. Another way of framing it is with a though experiment: Say a take a time machine back to neolithic times, and speak to the 1 millionth person ever born. Would that make the present human population disappear? Since the argument would be just as valid for them: the chance of them being born the millionth person would be minuscule if 100 billion people will ever get born. If the basic assumption of the doomsday argument held water. And yet here we are.
