Also, what is the rate of population growth? If the flood never happened, wouldn't the world be over populated, based on the population rate of pre-flood life?

Because in the fundie-verse people never die, there is never shortage of food, there is never disease, there is never war.

Wait, if the flood happened, then we would see more people around than we do today. Because there aren't more people around than he says there should be, it proves the flood?

I'm gettin' dizzy!

methinks OrangeWizard would analyze it as if the rate of growth were linear, and not exponential.

Also, disasters abounds have held back the rate of population growth over the centuries.

What was the "population rate of pre-flood life"? Cite your sources.

Well, since there were supposedly ten trillion people on earth before "the flood", going by those numbers we're a bit far off overpopulation at this point.

(by most reality-based assessments however, we already do have overpopulation. It's just a question of by how much.)

This has been covered quite well by major historical accomplishments occuring shortly after only eight people being the only humans left (at least against Fundies who claim this was only 4500 years ago)

China and Egypt have documentation 500 years either side of this. It breaks down to (even with a lot of children being born to noahs group, and their grandchildren of less than 100 people in all ancient kingdoms

There are these things we egg-heads call "Factors". Or are you just too dumb to understand how people work?

The current rate of population growth was made possible by modern medicine, agriculture, water purification and transportation. Once again, a basic knowledge of science blows away a religious funadamentalists' cherished myths.

Figuring a population growth of 0.5% (Morris, Henry M. 1985. Scientific Creationism. Green Forest, AR: Master Books, pp. 167-169.) from the estimated date of the supposed flood (2490 B.C.E.), starting with only 8 people, then Moses, in 1446 B.C.E., would have been leading his 600K men plus women and children out of Egypt when the world's population was only 726.

Once again, xtians demonstrate with their own logic how the events in the Bible are impossible and full of B.S.

Your "population growth" argument has been debunked.

No. Next question.

3/24/2010 8:14:53 AM



No flood and yes, we are overpopulated.

If the flood DID happen, the world would have been underpopulated at very important times. For instance, it would mean that the pyramids were built while the world population was about 13 people.

No.

The world IS grossly overpopulated. Simply because humans are fucking idiots who don't know when to stop making babies (I'm talking to YOU Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar) and our infant/maternal mortality rate has dropped to almost 0 (in 1st world countries). Therefore: more idiots breeding, less offspring dying = too many people!

3/24/2010 9:52:36 AM



Since people can't live, in general, more than 120 years and the life expectancy then was.................less than 50.Ok, do PROPPER math.

According to this logic, the earth should be covered with a miles thick layer of rabbits within two years. The population rate of rabbits is much, much higher than the population rate of humans.

How is pushing 6,500,000,000 people UNDER-populated?

Meh'd. OrangeWizard is quite stupid, but this is not a stupid question, just an ignorant one.

Um, what about people dieing?

Who said the world isn't overpopulated? It's been that way for years. I guess that means the global flood never happened.

The population growth has been considered. If the Flood happened, wouldn't the world be underpopulated? Since you seem to have all of the answers to the questions raised by the Bible, what the heck happened to the humanity between the Flood and the Exodus? Where the heck did all those people come from?

And for that matter, where the heck did all of these animal species come? Was there some sort of brief period of hyperevolution?

I think it's nice that the flood happened. It gives you something to talk about.
