I understand your position. However what makes you think humanity will have a choice but to look into the universe for survival?

Let's look at our current place of residence. Over population, limited resources that only get more limited, wars, poverty etc There is going to be major decisions in the future and not all decisions will be popular but what needs to be done needs to be done.

Plus.. if humans are brought up in space, the chances are they could not return to Earth. Their bodies would be too weak to cope in our gravity.
