There is so much similarity between the current era and era in which the dinosaurs died out. It had been said that the dinosaurs died out abruptly. Now let us examine what abrupt means in geologic scale. Even if those creatures died out in thousands or even million years it would be considered abrupt.
Now lets see, human civilization is only a few thousand years old, and technological civilization, capable of wiping out other creaturs, only few hundred years old. In those few hundred years mankind managed to nearly exterminate many species. Whatever wild animals exist today, are in reservations or in the Zoos. Hand writing is on the wall. By the year 2500 not a single large animal be found in the wild.
Some of them will exist in the zoos. The most beautiful wild animal, The Royal Bengal Tiger will lose their habitat in the wild much sooner, by the end of the present century. By 2500 human population will be 25 billion or more. In the struggle betwwen the needs of humans and other species, the other species wiil always be loser. By the year 6000 human population will level at 65 billion.
If for soe reason the the humans become extinct, after another 60 million or so years can anybody say about fossil of human skeleton that it was intelligent?
