World population since creation: 5,500BC to today

History Future Now has been researching for an article regarding global population and wanted some data about population numbers over time.  This came up, which was one of the most amazing things that I have seen on the internet.  This goes beyond Creationists who claim that the Earth was created 5,500 years ago.  It claims that the total human population level was around 9 billion before the time of the Flood of Noah:

The following chart assumes the human race began with two persons, Adam and Eve, relatively recently. Population growth was very rapid for 1656 years until the Flood of Noah reduced the population to eight persons (4 couples). I have arbitrarily chosen the population at the time of the Flood as 9 billion, though as shown above this may be too conservative. Very little data on world population is available until recent times, so a few intermediate points have been selected. I have guessed the world population at the time of Abraham at 5 million. For example there seems to be broad agreement that the world population at the time of Christ was between 200 and 300 million.

 

What is amazing is the level of “scientific” detail of the website, with references to Stanford University, amongst others.

Check it out!

For the avoidance of doubt – History Future Now does not agree with this!
