Well the Creationist would say that 4400 yrs ago after the flood occured the earths population was 8, that be Noah and the rest of his crew. They say that 4400 yrs is more then enough to bring the population to where it is today. Now if that be the case, what would the population be like if we had 200,000 yrs to populate the earth?

Well, if you totally ignore the facts that we require food to eat, fresh water to drink, oxygen to breathe and a place to stand, then taking that rate of exponential growth the human population would be approximately

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000.

Give or take an order of magnitude.

This is quite a good illustration of why, when trying to think about biology, you should not ignore facts about biology which are known even to small children. In other words, don't be like Kent Hovind.

yes i have seen some of kent Hovinds presentations and i have to say he is very convincing for someone that the Evolutionists say doesant have a clue.

Has it occurred to you that the reason you find him convincing is that you are also short on clues when it comes to the relevant subject matter? Only I notice that the man doesn't manage to convice many biologists.

Just a thought for you to ponder.

Re: The fossil of people is found together with dinosaurs
Here are photos:

Those are indeed photos. There's no denying that. Photos is certainly what they are. I know a photograph when I see one.

And yet they are not photos of dinosaurs and humans in the same strata, which is what I was led to expect.

Unless perhaps I'm missing something.

Where's the human? Where's the dinosaur?
