I just watched this episode again and it got me thinking. The scene where Mrs. Hawking tells Desmond that if he doesn't go to the island etc...they're all dead

My take on it is that if Desmond doesn't sail around the world, crash on the island, cause the crash of 815 which then results in the losties going back in time and preventing the incident, everyone on the island in 1977 would have died.
