What makes you think human beings have that long?
Because humans have survived ice ages, the black death, volcanoes, asteroid impacts, and constant devastating wars for the past several hundred thousand years. Events that have wiped out entire species - mammoths, saber toothed tigers, dire wolves, cave bears, and other wild beasts. We are like roaches. People still live in caves, on islands, atop mountains, in the most inhospitable lands imaginable (Siberia for example), and only a handful (of the several billion of us) need live to continue the population. Near-total human extinction events have actually happened many many times.
