We might have had a bigger population in the past compare to today.

The Population statistics could be completely wrong from the past to present.

The amount of evidence of empires, civilizations, and city states burnt to ashes is huge and everywhere. No empire will bury the bodies of their enemies rather than burn them because that would be a huge graveyard.

This doesn't include human being eaten by cannibal tribes(yes they existed in the past and today) or animals. Also bodies washed out to sea being fed to ocean critters(flooding and tsunami). You just can't find those bodies back for evidence, neither is the population recorded compare to today.

There were strategists in the past that predicts how many soldiers before battles some would say there are 100 million soldiers. Maybe battles were really that huge in the past. This did not include civilian population or farmers that spread out away from the city. Each empire had a huge population to last a century. They would have fallen really early, if they didn't.

You know those pyramids or huge as stone structure. If not aliens, maybe lots and lots of man power. Just look at WW2 Chinese Burma road. All done by man power. Finish way faster than predicted. We had slaves, military, civilians, farmers, and unrecorded people exploring the world for adventures.

It is funny how they say we are over populated, but the true fact is we are cutting down more trees than we need unlike the past. We use to live in houses made of wood with rarely any furniture. The more furniture you have the more trees you cut down(ehm rich bastards with their mansions). Same with card board and papers. We never used them in the past. Papers were rarely used, especially for writing unlike today's schools. Write, and print hard copies. Write more on papers. Some empire in the past would write on sand as a way to preserve. Pencils also uses wood.

It's kind of easy to gauge human populations in the past because we leave MUCH evidence of our existence. There is absolutely no way a hunter/gatherer society can maintain anything near a modern population, and there is absolutely no evidence of any per-industrial society that had numbers anywhere near the numbers today - 7 billion people eat much food, leave much waste, and need settlements - there would be overwhelming evidence, yet I've never seen any evidence that per-industrial civilizations were supporting modern population numbers. Saying we don't know the absolute accurate numbers of death's in the per-industrialized nations does not cover the lack of evidence for 6 billion+ people through-out the ages.

They could be, than again they probably are not. As today's knowledge comes from multiple sources and known history.

The first benefit you can do to yourself is do not equate what you have to what someone else had at some point in history.
Look at houses from 100 years ago, look at the no closets, small living space, small rooms. It's only recently that any of what we concider normal home life and living has come to be.

It's quite possible, but a long long time ago.

Think on some of these things like Super Volcanoes. I think one went off like 100,000 years ago. Apparently humans got down to about 1,000 or 10,000 humans left because of it because food was too hard to grow and find in the "nuclear" winter after it. Disaster events like that super volcanoes bury civilizations under huge amounts of ash/dirt worldwide. Then add on another 100,000 years... They would be buried very deep.

Should this not be in the HOAX, or Gray area?

It's pretty obvious this is simply untrue.

Most human population lives on the coast lines. The Coast lines of the ancient past are all under the oceans. We have not studied any of it.

I'm sorry, what strategists said this?

I'm reasonably clued up on a fair amount of ancient history and I am sure I'd recall someone dropping into conversation the figure of 100 million! I'm pretty sure you just counted too many zero's - one of the largest Armies assembled in the ancient world was the Persians and they numbered around 2-300,000.

How would you feed a 100,000,000 man army..not even remotely possible..imho.

That is what you think. India and China is a prime example over 100 million. They still have lots of forest and jungles covering the area. Same with USA(300 million). The only draw back for US is destroying itself with consumption of technology and deforestation. Why else was the French and British Empire that huge when they started colonizing American and Australia?

en.wikipedia.org...

Every man can fight will be sent to fight against another Empire.

There were a lot of ships and soldiers during Colonial Age. I doubt you can dig out all the info from the sea as all the bodies would have been eaten already. It isn't like WW2 fighting over North and South America, none of the nations could send their army that fast over there. There were a lot of naval battles and civilian casualties at sea.

You simply cannot mobilise every person in the nation to fight - your assertion that the USA could field 300 million is nonsense, as is India and China doing the same.

Who's at home growing the crops?

Who's at home looking after the children?

Who's at home in the factories supplying the war effort?

Who's at home working in other sectors keeping the economy going?

Nonsense.

I'd like to see evidence of this assertion.

Note that said evidence should also indicate that "most human population" lives close enough to the coast to be inundated over a period of centuries but for whatever reason would choose not to move up out of the flooded area.

You way of thinking is absurd. Your thinking of modern age way too much. There were no factories in the colonial age and before, all ships were built with wood. Deserts weren't that expanded unlike today's pollution. Builders were fighters and sailors.

Factories? Really, they did not exist back then. Even today if there are going to be factories it is much faster and could be automated so everyone else could just join in as a soldier. Also everyone were fighting with mostly swords and shield, not like today wasting metal on bullets that cannot be reused.

Obviously it was the men doing all the fighting. There are way more dried up lakes than the past due to human reconstruction(industrialized era). Just look at China sunken city. Food weren't as scarce and farmers do fight you idiot. Not like today. Do you even know American history? Everyone that started the revolution were mostly peasants and farmers who were tired of the British Empire.

Not like every empire did what Russia did burn the dam farm fields so Napolean couldn't keep his soldiers fed. Everyone knew how to grow their own food back then compare to today. There is no such thing as an economy with digital numbers and money was easily made compare to the past, most wouldn't need money to even maintain their civilization as long as they are able to feed themselves(no taxes, but just allegiances to the empire with some rare resource trade).

Selling food was for mostly people traveling and going as they needed to eat and rest(kind of like today's Hotel, Inn or Motel).
Food delivery is obviously done by soldiers back then if it was going to be delivered to a war field.

Atlantis, India sunken city, Japans sunken city, China underwater lost city, Alexandria, etc. It goes on. You need water to grow food. You need ports for faster routes around the mountain and island trade routes. What? You thinking everyone is going to live in land or on mountains? If you want food you are going to have to live near water in order to farm, this includes lakes. Most of Egyptian population was living near Nile River and it used to flood like crazy.

Maybe but our world population is rising exponentially at the moment. 10 billion is predicted around 2050.

That is true because we are recording our population and the lack of war that has been happening compare to our ancient ancestors past.

Wow, you have to be an idiot to not read history. Every empire was at war in the past. Not a single nation was at peace. Pre-WW2 eras. Your just lucky your not dead.
