    in 100,000,000 years florida will be under water, ice will be an ancient myth and clean non-polluted water will be impossible to find in nature. Also the skys will be so polluted that they will be completely covered in an opaque yellow-ish sheet of clouds, making it so hot that humans will have left the earth, or died out.

    All this "evidence" presumes they have the patience to stick around long enough to analyze it. Chances are our descendants will have modified things to an even more exaggerated degree than we have, before their civilization collapsed. The "road builder" culture gets supplanted by the "gravity nullifying" culture with it's floating cities, etc. Then a mass extinction event occurs and nature resumes control of the macro world again. How much Xe 129 will be left as evidence of thermonuclear conflict?

    People sad because they think humans will go extinct and our planet will die out in Millions of years. How I see it is we will explore other planets, evolve, and those creatures you see in Star Wars is what the different human descendants will look like and be like. Different but will co exist. That's what I thinks gonna happen.

    Don't live in the future or past, think about the present. What is happening now is more important. Sure, history is important, it helps us learn from our mistakes, however, the present is what is happening now. And that is where you want to be.

    Some people just forget that evolution is just a THEORY. And this thinking of millions of years have passed also just a theory. I don't know why people except this as a fact. A theory is just proven, but backed up by ACTUAL EVIDENCE. Any ways this is just my opinion.
