Would the Earth survive without the Sun...Creation science thinks it may but life would not be pleasant?
The Sun, the largest planet underneath the dome of the Earth, it provides heat and light during the day time and sustains us. What if it were to 'go out'? Well, the next biggest planet is the Moon and it provides us with heat and light during the night time but could we survive with this energy alone?
Scientists are divided on the matter but we do know that the Moon only provides less than one third of the light and the heat of the Sun, this would mean it would be quite dark and cold most of the time.
What do you think would be affected the most if the Sun went out?

So many people these days fit solar panels whilst completely ignoring the light given off by the moon. The solution is clear, if the Sun went out then the installation of lunar panels would harvest the light given out by the moon instead. Of course the light of the moon is a bit dimmer than that of the Sun, but so are a lot of the people who answer your questions and they manage to survive.

The Earth can exist without people. A small segment of humanity would continue to exist on a constantly moving train, 1001 cars long. For a number of years it would be relatively pleasant for the first-class passengers at the front of the train. The eternal engine will provide.

Your question is interesting, but I think you meant it as silly non-sense. I will ignore the details, which are intentionally silly, and answer the initial question.
The truth is, yes, it would be possible, but it would take quite an effort and a good deal of preparation. That means we would have to know well in advance that the sun was going to disappear.
The earths core is actually producing as much heat energy as the sun's surface. If we dug down deep, like they did in the movie the matrix, we could use that energy in the same way we now use the suns energy. We would keep warm, grow plants, and survive. It wouldn't be pleasant, but it would be survival.

The sun is a star and the earth is one of the planets that orbit it! I doubt that any life could survive for a moment without it.

The sun is a star, NOT a planet. The sun provides light and heat 24 hours a day, NOT only during daytime. It's always daytime somewhere on Earth. The moon doesn't provide either light or heat, it only reflects light and heat of the sun but it does provide a gravitational pull that mainly effects our oceans.
Without our sun, the Earth would rapidly cool until it's surface becomes completely frozen. The temperatures would drop to hundreds of degrees below zero everywhere. All plants and animals would die. Humans would starve and freeze.
As a planet, the Earth would survive, but no so for any life on it.

Maybe you should be learning about the sun, the moon, and the planets BEFORE asking questions full of inaccurate assumptions.

no sun no life.......no son no life
