Is humanity mature enough to survive the coming singularity?

The singularity posited by Ray Kurzweil and others represents a fundamental change in the way humanity will live and work in this world. Literally, everything will change when the singularity occurs. The problem is that the singularity is likely to happen in the next one hundred years (and, perhaps, a lot less). The question is will that be enough time for humanity to "mature" enough to make that singularity a positive thing or is humanity likely not to survive the singularity?
