I don't think I will be around to find out...but if we don't change our ways it might be sooner than that.
As far as comets hitting the earth...could be but a hundred some odd years is a long time and scientists will invent something to destroy the comets by then.
I wish all of your a Happy New year and Holiday...what ever you celebrate.
Remember your food banks they need your help.

Call me Nostradamus, I know exactly when the world will end...
In about 5 billion years!
Oh, did you mean when will people die off?
Even if we set off every nuclear bomb we've made at the same time. Dump every ounce of oil into the ocean. And let loose some 28 Days Later type super bug that infects 99.99% of the population; there are like 10 billion people. A man and a woman somewhere will survive and make more people.
It's very arrogant to think we ourselves are powerful enough to end our own existance. Life would just really really suck for a really really long time.
The only thing we know could kill us all off is a giant meteor, which it looks like happens randomely every few million years or so. In which case we're due up.
It's perfectly concievable though that we can get bright enough to fend that off. We also could get bright enough to extend our own lives indefinitely, create machines that can travel space at the speed of light, and find fresh new planets to live on when this one dies.
So hopefully we'll never end, at least until every sun burns out, or the Universe again contracts into a tiny ball and the big bang happens all over again (look up string theory) but that would be trillions and trillions of years from now.
We would have to do all kinds of thing to get to that point though, like shedding ourselves of this ridiculous notion of religion, divorce this marriage we have to the idea of an armegedon, and come up with some government system that rewards improving and furthering life instead of making money and garnering power.
