Do you think Earth will still contain evidence of human existence 100 million years from now?

There is still evidence of dinosaurs.

Possible. My favorite candidate for lasting evidence is Mount Rushmore. If it's granite, it may not be completely eroded. And nuclear waste.

Yes. We have evidence of what was here 100 million years ago.

If we can see evidence of dinosaurs now, I'm pretty sure they'll see evidence of Twinkies in the future.

Strike that.

It's more accurate to say I don't think mankind will be around that long.

As for evidence of human beings...sure, but then philosophically speaking, what evidence can there be if there isn't an entity examining it, right?

Yes because then the earth will be a glorified celestial planet with resurrected humans living on it.

Definitely. Our landfills alone will preserve our garbage, buried deep, which will likely get deeper then someday re-emerge to the surface through erosion. We've created all sorts of permanent memoirs of us.

And if it happens to be an exceptionally large piece of coprolite, there's a decent chance it'd belong to YukonCornelius!... ☺️

Yesterday, I saw a piece of fossilized poop that was millions of years old. I'm pretty sure that there currently are enough people on the planet that 100 millions years from now, there'll be a piece or two of coprolite laying around. ;)

Solar system we will conquer the galaxy (barring another super race) in ten million years. That isn't a long time on the cosmic scale. Humans are around to stay and there's no reason earth would be an exception

They will find fully constructed dinosaur skeletons in large buildings and conclude they were the bosses.

Yes. We're the loudest. However a collision like we had with Thea would inevitably destroy it. After all, everyone and everything here is just star dust from other planets/rocks.

it's a bit akin to the age-old question regarding if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

Extrapolate that to whichever entity would have to examine evidence of human beings. That's what I meant.

Almost certainly. We have found primitive fossils billions of years old, and advanced fossils hundreds of millions of years old. No reason to think some of us, our trails, or our trash won't last that long.

Recall that a megaton is 4*10^15 joule: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/TNT_equivalent.
We may have 1,000 megatons, thats 10^18, an order of 14 below what it takes to vaporize earth. That's ten trillion.
