    We will not question why we just sent one boy, and not a party with many members of the two sexes to ensure a breading colony could be established.

    Also, this will be a place where the radiation is such that our cells will be much stronger and we would all be physically like "gods" to them.

    Hmmmm...that sounds strangely familiar...oh well, it'll come to me

    Likely destroy ourselves before the robots get a chance to.

    I'm afraid that the selfish side of humanity is gaining too much momentum, and the commandment to love one another is being practiced by fewer and fewer people. We are becoming so "thing" oriented, and so less people-centered, that will be our undoing. Look around at a restaurant. We're becoming addicted to the very thing I'm communicating to you with! Family of four, each self-absorbed in electronic reality, to their very own detriment.

    Ultimate destiny? There's only one possibility: extinction.

    So you know how cancer kills its host? The cancer cells proliferate until there is no more room. The cells take up all the resources until they eventually kill the host organism.

    I see human beings as the cancer. We're eating up everything, using up all our resources, killing everything else in the process.

    So would "apoptosis" on a large scale be within your suggestion for a cure to mother earth's cancer?

    Annihalation. We will die out, after we make the planet unsustainable for our species.

    I submit that all creatures on earth are parasites. We're just competing with the tree parasites for resources from the host. The earth is a parasite sucking energy from the sun.

    I'm curious as to why these people of the opposite sex wouldn't want to reproduce rather than just make bread?
