Imagine Earth (ecological problems put aside) in the year 3007. In what we'll call universities, professors will teach what the human civilization looked like at the beginning of the 3rd millenary, (((which started 2001, ok?)))
What do you think will be told about us? That we were cupid morons, greedy conquerors, what else ? Maybe we'll be blamed or praised for a few things, but what are these things? ATS users, tell me how you'd see our civilization 1000 years later.

(PS: maybe, with medical progress, we'll see the year 3007, but i sincerely think we'll nuke ourselves way before that. haha)

The way we're using up this planet there won't be any "intelligent" life in 1000 years. We'll be gone and it'll take millions of years for evolution to develope another species capable of looking back on the debacle that was mankind.

Btw, I'm not in a bad mood, just the way I see it.

they'll probably all be laughing at some of the silly things we believed,
stuff like that some of us thought the Earth was built by a man called God in seven days
that some of us believed that we had caused global warming
that some of us believed that aliens had interfered in our history. It will be blindingly obvious by then that they didn't since by then faster than light travel will make a weeks summer holiday at all the other aliens homeworlds a ten minute journey and the Aliens will look at anyone who suggests it that we are nuts
"Earth, by Zeta why would anyone want to go to that festering shothole 6000 years ago, they didn't even have spaceflight or coca cola"

they will want to know why we thought panty liners were a hygenic solution !!

either that or the ruling world order elite of cockroach government, insect churches and archaeologists will be hiding the truth about earths technological past and the roaches will all be discussing conspiracy theories about it over the interweb

I think that what we know and do today as part of society will be used as an example of human behaviour on a large scale, similar to the way we do with 1000 years before now.

I believe it will be a case of looking back and viewing humanity as a race of petulant teenagers.

An interesting question

I would see history looking at end of the 20th century and the start of the 21st as:

The end of national/alliance wars (WW1, WW2 and the communist proxy wars)

Supremcy of socialist-capitalism and the demise of the short term threat of communism

The start of a short-lived back lash against science (neoluddites)

The continual decline and importance of religion

The age in which the greatest threat to mankind, overpopulation, was brought under control

Start of our space existence

The start of biological and genetic control of life

The age of computers and the start of interconnectivity

It will be known as the age of knowledge
