The Earth cant be a billion years old because there would be billions of humans on Earth. In 1900 there were about 1 billion people on Earth. One hundred years later it is nearly 10 billion people on Earth. If humanity is eve maybe 40,000 years old there would be nearly 60-100 billion people on Earth. I dont have a link or anything i just thought this up in my head about the Earth's population. What do you people think?

humans have only been on earth around 1 million years so the age of the planet has nothing to do with the population really.

if humans had developed societies like today for all these years that 60-100 billion might be a possibility but we would have to have developed on the moon, under water, under ground, on desert, in forest, anything because we couldnt maintain such a population without developing everything.

Do you understand what im saying? If humans have been around for a million years then there would be more than just about 10 billion as there is now! There would be 100 billion of us maybe!

One very simple thing that you are forgetting in your flawed calculation are the cost of lives incurred by the wars that have happened over time. Such people who have been killed would have a profound effect on your multiplication estimates

As we humans advance technologically, strides in specific areas enable us to support a larger population for longer and longer amounts of time.

Healthcare and medicine, more efficient ways to produce food, etc.

Way back in the day, people died because from various things (sickness, malnutrition, animal attacks, wars) before they reached the procreating age. More and more people today are making to the age where they fornicate and increase the pop.

Furthermore, our population is growing at an exponential rate so if the number was 1 billion in 1900 and 10 billion in 2000, it will take way less than 100 years for us to see another 9 billion increase, but getting to that first billion took thousands.

well theres always the good old ....War ....Famine....Disease and of course a population can only grow fast when it becomes efficent at growing food and providing health care....which hasnt been for very long......i just dont see how this has anything to do with the age of the earth.....?
It could be that multiple civilizations have come and gone from the earth. The earth in time wipes all evidence clean that they existed....even the greatest features geologically change and erode and the greatest of structures will crumble into nothingness.

The earth is very old indeed.....ancient in fact about 25% the age of the universe ,which at last count should be right around 17 billion years old.
The earth has got to be at least four to five billion years old....

Right. That, and the fact that the human population has only just begun to increase rapidly (in relation to their age). Check the chart:




Most of the other people summed up why this is happening, and saved me a lot of typing.

Yes still if there were massive amounts of people dying a million years! Think of it! 1,000,000 years! Thats ahell of a lot. The human population would be mush bigger than it is now if the Earth exists for Millions of years. Humanity has been around ever since the Earth was created or as other belive formed.

I'm patient... so I'll respond to this one, but I hope I am not talking to a wall. You're also forgetting that there were lots of big wars before the 19th Century. You're also forgetting that there were lots of wars that were engaged by other nations aside from the United States. The United States is not THE WORLD

what i would ask you to AD5673 is a google search on the black plague or the flu that struck after wwi and check the statistics on how many people were killed by theese terrible epidemics.....i think youll be surprised...!

i believe said flu killed 18 million people world wide

Yes i know what the black plauge is and what the flu is! But the fossils thing you have absolutly no proof that there are millions of years old! That fossil would probably not even last a million years

Those wars arent only involving the U.S. They involve lots of countries
