But it's in 200 million years. Regardless of anything, mankind will probably be extinct already or will have went forth and multiplied across at
least *some* of the known universe.
How do you know we haven't " moved on, " and " populated " the known universe? We have all these stories of tribes around the world saying we
came from the sky, or had gods that came from the sky etc etc. How do you know, we aren't those early colonists. Perhaps survivors of a great war
with in those colonies. Long forgotten history, forgotten on a smouldering rock thought to be uninhabitable.
This is interesting news, but hardly ELE. One, 200 million years is a long while off, and they are deep in the ocean, likely to form a new continent
rather than ruin all of life on the planet.
I guess it depends on what kind of eruption it is. If it just breaks through the surface and oozes out, or even if it is a caldera type eruption,
under that much water it's not going to be ultra explosive. More likely a big muddy mess in the pacific. I'd be more concerned for the marine life.
