  • Avengers Infinity War Ending! What would happen to our society if Thanos actually killed half of everything? Download Marvel Puzzle Quest and get a 3 star Thanos cover for free: d3go.com/newrockstars
    In the ending of Infinity War, Thanos succeeds in snapping his fingers to eliminate half of all life across the universe. His goal? To save overpopulated societies and planets by giving survivors more resources, living space, and ecological benefits... evading the catastrophe that befell his home planet, Titan. But what would actually happen to Earth if Thanos' success in Avengers Infinity War was a REALITY? Erik Voss breaks down each of the ways human society would change -- our safety, our food, our technology, our leisure activities, our religion, our USclip SUBSCRIPTIONS -- and whether Thanos' snap would improve our lives at all. How does the world respond to Thanos' snap in the comic series Marvel's Infinity Gauntlet? What was the weirdest thing to happen to humanity the last time half of us died (the Black Death pandemic in the Middle Ages), and could it happen again?

    If a person in a vehicle got snapped, the vehicle would kill a bunch more people, then there would be traffic, then car crashes, and a plane pilot being snapped, People would have limited time to escape, because autopilot, and then it crashes into buildings, the buildings fall, no oxygen, and then it would be about 65 percent dead.

    If Thanos wiped out half of every lifeform, statistically that would *not* mean half of humanity... Humans make up about less than 1% of all ANIMALS (let alone all those plants, fungi and bacteria!). So the chance that no humans disappeared in the snap would be bigger than the scenario of having half of them disappearing... (though we’d probably still die shortly after the snap because a considerable part of the bacteria in our body would be gone)

    Thanos should have snapped wiped all sentient life except himself. Problem solved all resources saved no intelligent life left to duck up universe or able to get revenge nor Reverse his actions.

    Thanos said there were to many people and too little resources but when he snapped he wiped out 50% of ALL living creatures that includes animals like pigs and cows that make less resources than there were so he made things worse

    If thanos snapped 50% of everything away, doesn't that mean that theres a change that the whole earth chould have been one of the 50% that survived? And that no one on earth disapeared?

    Plant don't die in the snap and its not 50% of each species, its 50% of everything added together.

  • Angelo Joaquim
    Angelo Joaquim 2 months ago +1

    I disagree. Because Thanos' goal was to balance the universe, so I don't think that the snap has affected significantly other species (besides the dominant species of each planet of the universe) because most of them are in the way of
    extinction, which means that their populations are already critical, so the snap affected only species with high numbers of individuals.

    If thanos snapped and whiped 50% of the UNIVERSE why was earth targeted so heavily and thanos killed 50% of EARTH not 50% of the UNIVERSE by what we see in end game trailers and infinity war.. Why exactly 50% of earth die, in earth there could die 1 person and there would be still enough people in the universe for Thanos' snap.

  • kaia bailey
    kaia bailey 3 months ago

    It's kind of interesting actually cause if it's half of ALL LIFE throughout the whole universe, then thats a lot of numbers to cut. Just for perspective case, lets say there was 500,000 things that were alive in the universe. If half got cut that would be 25,000 left, but that 25,000 that got cut could only mean that 1/8 of earth's life got cut cause it wasn't just earth, it was the whole universe. And as we saw through Gotg and the Thor movies, there is A LOT of life in other places in the universe. Like how half of all life could mean the entire state of Alaska but only 1/4 of Texas. I think that maybe they made it seem like half of EARTH's population got dusted, when actually in the grand scheme of the universe, half of all live should only mean like 1/8th of earth life. Does this make sense?

    • kaia bailey
      kaia bailey 2 months ago

      CiCiDiaries yeah I see what you mean. Maybe the 50% meant all human life was cut in half?

    • CiCiDiaries
      CiCiDiaries 2 months ago +1

      I know what you mean, but I'm pretty sure it would still be around half of all life on earth. Technically it is possible that earth could lose more or less than half and it would still in total be half the universe, chances are it will be basically half because the dusted were chosen randomly and statictics on such a huge scale will naturally end up almost exact. On a smaller planet that say maybe only had 100 living things for whatever reason it is likely that they wouldn't lose exactly 50%, but on earth with over 7.5 billion people, each of which who has a 50% chance of living, the death toll will be almost exactly 50%.

    What if Doctor Strange made a time loop the moment they are in Titan then they fight Thanos over and over again at that exact same moment trying to win against him while the Avengers (the ones who left after the snap) go back through time then managed to collect each stone then each stone which being found by those avengers will gone from Thanos gauntlet one by one so it will make him weaker and weaker, increasing the tendency for those who's still fighting against him to win everytime that moment repeats again. Just a thought. haha

    Thanos’s plan was never to preserve societies and comfortable lifestyles. More than half of all life would die as a aftermath of the snap, but that would only give the surviving population that much more room and resources to thrive with. Eventually, we’d all go back to normal and repopulate while rebuilding our gov, economy, cities, etc.

    life finds a way.

    You hit most of it, Eric, like the roads blocked with abandoned vehicles. But I think the most noteworthy thing would be the fires. Fires might burn for months. Wildfires, certainly, from vehicles and crashing planes (25% of planes will fall out of the sky). But especially in cities with people in the middle of cooking or ironing, countless fires will break out simultaneously. With difficulty reaching the fires cuz of blocked roads and half of firefighters gone, fires will rage! My 2 cents.

    In the beginning there was the word in the literally about the word the written word. And then the pen is mightier than the sword is literal and As Above So Below is trans figurative as in what we create on Earth by putting pen to paper with intent of religious belief has a manifestation above. So we created the Multiverse we created the collapse of the Multiverse. These are all just theories of course but for me growing up the Bible was comic books comic where my Bible. doesn't matter how you find God as long as you find God I know that there is one God that is the god of everything and then there is a God of nothing but we don't talk about that one.

    The lies we have been fed to us about global warming and the lack of resources is ridiculus. But think think about this though Doctor Strange contact Professor Xavier in Phoenix from X-Men apocalypse and has them work together with him how to teleport apocalypse to dormammu's Realm. And with the help of Thanos and the time Stone they're able to trap him there and then we only have one more apocalypse to deal with instead of two. Imagine if Nibiru is the planet apocalypse on its way here and imagine Thanos coming here to help us fight dark side and the anti-life equation. His dark side is not about balance he's just evil pure evil like what we you know if I was the devil. Whenever I think of Darkseid and Planet Apocalypse in the parademons it makes me think of Revelations of the Bible apollyon and his Locust Army

    The snap wouldn’t necessarily dust 50% of police, 50% of terrorists, or 50% of moms, it would snap away 50% of all life. So really, it would snap away maybe all doctors and no terrorists. And if it snapped away 50% of life, so maybe the snap could dust away 39% of humans, 57% of plants, and and like 4% of other stuff
    I don’t know if that’s correct math and I really don’t care about it

    I guess you forgot what thanos wanted. He wanted half of all organisms which can have a thought process will die so ultimately half of the people are using the resources and i believe that animals thus wont die as they are a resource neither will plants. Heck let me tell you what you are actually saying if half of all "living" things will die that means chunks of earth will also vanish and not only earth any planet supporting an ecosystem will meet the same consequence as earth is practically a living being as it can heal, die, breath and many things more as the atmosphere, lithosphere and the hydrosphere together create a biosphere which is a living thing. So you may be falling into oblivion if the snap works in your way.
