With interest, payable by your heirs to those of whomever takes the bet?

Forum bots are advancing at an incredible rate these days... still not sure how they could have made one this advanced.
On topic: humanity can't be wiped out before I die. And I'm living forever. I'll figure out a way to reverse entropy within the next trillion years, too, so you don't have to worry about a heat death.

Later some people posted some other traditional (nerd) holy wars, like Star Trek vs Star Wars. From there it sort of expanded more and more... Zerg vs Borg, video game villains, etc. Now we've got Hawking vs Higgs.

Er, hard to say. You look mostly caucasian, but with a slightly near eastern look. So, somewhere in the near east?
I'm a pure muslim person .

We will survive an all-out nuclear war and plagues and famines, and global warming, especially with our technology and shelters etc. Pretty much the only thing that will really destroy us completely is something that will destroy pretty much all life. A comet, or our planet suddenly jumps a few million miles closer to the sun. If war kills all but .01% of humanity, we can probably survive that as a species with our technology and inventiveness.
We could also evolve into much less intelligent creatures, although I doubt that will happen. That is our niche, our intelligence. I don't see how evolution will select for dumber humans, but I guess you really can't know.
So, I would say a few million years, at least.

The many theories that have come up about the end of the world either cannot present any believable evidence behind them or have just been so-called prophets shrieking "The End Is Nigh" to the sky.
We aren't all that different than neanderthals in the BEST of times, and look what happened to them.
If we don't learn to keep our nuclear weapons in our pants I think the universe will find intelligence is a disadvantageous adaptation.
