I've been saying that for years.

As deer hunters we all understand carrying capacity of the land. Well the Earth has limited carrying capacity and we are close to reaching it.

A history teacher once told me something I have never forgot.

Today, right now, there are more people alive walking the Earth than there is all the people that died before from Jesus time to the ones that died yesterday. in other words could all the people that have died since Jesus time and todays world population, there are more today than all those others.

We can't keep this up.



I would like to see where he got those #'s from.

Population records.

Remember Mary and Joseph, they went to the city of his birth to be counted.

Anyway he's right. There are almost 7 BILLION people alive on this earth today.

I remember back in 1492 the total worlds population was around 375 million.

Todays population would be over 14,000 times that.

Well if there were say 30 generations since Christ's death and the population of the earth was say 1.5 billon( avg ) for the last 1700 years, it has turned over by more than 6 times the earths population today. And thats if the average life was about 70. The average life was nowhere near 70 until recently. Those #s of his aren't even close.

the reason they don't come here, is because no matter how advanced they are it is 1,200 light years away.... it is way to far.

He used census not guesses.

You can find different sites on the internet to do the math. Just don't forget to count the ones that died. What I mean is don't just add up the populations of each year. But he's right.

Here's a very simple thing we all can do. Look at our own families tree. Look how "few" there were and now look at todays trees. To break that down me myself when I was 5 years of there were a grand total of 6 of us, my grandparents, parents and my brother. Today there are 15 of us not counting the ones that died. My father had 10 brothers and sisters, I had 42 first cousins and 251 second cousins but that's counting the ones that have passed away.

Not necessarily. If you can change the mass of the object, in theory, you can go faster than the speed of light. Besides, many people believe they might use inter-dimensional travel or wormholes.
