Billions maybe even trillions? Uh..no. not quite. Plus, population is not linear. Never has been, never will be. Throw in the odd plague, the odd natural disaster, a war here and there, and it would throw even a perfectly linear population growth model haywire.

Stupid... so horribly stupid.

Nobody is claiming humans have been around for billions of years. Your knowledge of pre-history is lacking.

You ignore the obvious- that people will eventually start breeding with a relative because the population increasing by powers of 2 quickly outnumbers the Earth's population. I recently juggled those numbers with a family tree, and it quickly becomes unmanageable. If we assume 4 generations per century, then only 750 years ago, your great-great-great...gramdparents outnembered the available population. So population math isn't quite as Malthusian as you would imagine, as the human family tree is more of a shrub.

Don't you hate it when they think they're doing math. You need all the base figures first, stupid. And in this case there're variables to factor in

Yes, taking population growth rates from after the development of antibiotics and projecting them backwards till before the evolution of man does give some strange numbers, however, this says more about your ability to think logically than it does the truth of evolution.

The earth is 4.5 billion years old, not trillions. Humanity is 100,000 - 200,000 years old, but population growth didn't really take off till the Neolithic revolution (10,000 - 8,000 years ago, later in some places).

I find your lack of intelligence, disturbing.

Population support capacity of the enviroment.
Good day sir.

Evolutionists? Yeah right, and the gravityists, and the earth-is-round-ists.
The world is billions of years, yes, but humans (homo sapiens) has only been around for about one or two hundred thousand years.
"The world increses..." Huh? The universe is expanding, yes, but that has nothing to do with population growth. When you retake History 101, you might take a course in Spelling for beginners, too.
During the Black Plague and other pandemics the population did most definitely not grow.

While the earth is billions of years old, about 4.6 billion actually, homo sapiens have been around for a fraction of that.
Population growth is actually slowing right now, and will continue to do so throughout this century for a myriad of reasons.
Also, you are really really really stupid.

first, the earth has only been around for approx 6 billion years.
second, humans, from what we can gather from gene mapping and fossil records, didn't show up until around 2 million years ago in primitive form, 500,000 years ago in modern form.
if the history of the earth was a 1000 page book, we're a paragraph on the bottom of the last page.
and why isn't the world densely overpopulated to the umpteenth degree? because people DIE.

There's also what's known as pedigree collapse. Moondog touched upon the concept. Wikipedia has a good article on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedigree_collapse

Okay, YEC creationists claim the world is 6000 years old right? WRONG! First lets look at world population growth. The world population increases at about 2% a year... a population starting with 2 people (Adam & Eve), growing with 2% per year there would be now 8 * 10^51 (10 to the power of 51) people in the world after 6000 years.
Simple exponential growth, basic mathematics.
Or in other words: "Nydas", before telling nonsense with totally wrong premises, you should rather check first whether it doesn't backfire and destroys your own theory.
