Human Population: Evidence for a Young Earth

Human Population ChartIn 2011 the world’s population reached 7 billion people.[1]  In 1985 there were 5 billion people on planet earth.  In 1800 there were only 1 billion people on the planet.  Most people agree that there were only about 1 billion people around the year 1800.[2]

The world’s population at the time of Christ was about ¼ billion people.[3]

If we start from the Bible, we see that 6,000 years ago God created everything.  About 4,400 years ago there was a worldwide flood in which only 8 people survived.  And this is exactly what the evidence shows.  The current population shows only about 4,400 years of growth.  God’s word is truth!

If evolution were true we would see something very different.  The evolutionists believe that the fossil record is evidence for millions of years of death and suffering.  The Biblical interpretation of the fossil record is that they are from the worldwide flood of the days of Noah.  Many animals and people were drowned in that worldwide flood 4,400 years ago.  They were buried and eventually became the fossils that we see today.

So the evolutionists do not believe in the worldwide flood that is recorded in the Bible.  Furthermore, they believe that man has been around for hundreds of thousands of years.  Let’s examine this for a bit.  If we started with two people 50,000 years ago, and the population doubled at the very slow rate of once every 150 years, 332 doublings would occur.  And the world’s population would be an enormous figure—a 1 followed by 100 zeros; that is:



This is not what the evidence shows. 

The evidence shows us that the Bible is absolutely correct. God created everything about 6,000 years ago and there was a worldwide flood about 4,400 years ago in which only eight people survived.
