Well, we seem to be top of the heap thought recorded history without encountering any significant challenge to our existence as a race, aside from ourselves of course.

Granted in the grand scheme of things, that time is less than a heart beat.

But the likes of the Black Death could not wipe us out, nor any other plage, predator, insect or global catastrophe to date.

We are as adapted to our environment as nature allows.

Unless there is another semi-intelligent creature out there doing the rounds that can attempt to master science, technology, adapt and overcome obstacles in the manner we do.

Nothing is perfect i suppose, but we are all products of our environment, from the smallest insect to the largest tree.

As to Polar Bears, are they not doing about as well as Pandas these days?

I know of no examples of a widespread species being extincted by disease, predator, or pest. Global disaster? One that just left humans? Of what do you speak?

As is every other creature on the planet.

Hanging on, I suppose. Too specialized perhaps.

I don't consider humans to be particularly better adapted than, say, rats. But I do like humans better than rats. Most of them.

I think we might have a hand in the demise of the Polar bear to be honest.

I'm not contesting your point about the rest of the creatures, as it could not be any other way that i know about.

Time being through and from our macro perspective, on land, we seem to be the top carnivore on the block.

Granted our diet varies, but thats another reason that we can survive where other animals could not.

What kind of Global disaster would only effect Humans short of some kind of engineered virus or the like?

We are probably becoming far too specialized in a few areas, suppose that could present a significant problem to our continued way of life if nature were ever to take away our toys, don't see it ending our race all the same, just setting us back a millennium or so it if was all to somehow go breasts up.

Termites and ants could be interesting.

Considering how they build and shape their environment.

Different kind of intelligence all the same.

I don't like rats myself. LoL

Its Cockroaches that really bug me through, yuk!

Ants are controlled by a queen. Once she dies the entire colony collapses. So do you want to be part of the Queen of England? I don't think so. God gave us freewill for a reason.
