In terms of geological time frame, humans have only been around for a very short time. Thinking that we know what is "normal", such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and asteroid strikes is the kind of short term thinking that is full of poor assumptions.

At this point, it seems more likely that we will cause our own demise before anything significant comes around.
