The real fact is that regardless of disease, natural disasters, wars and famine, human population has never stopped growing.

And your demonstration of this "real fact" is?

---

Humans, like other animals, cannot outgrow their food supply. For the population to expand, we had to develop methods to increase our supply of food --- either colonization of new lands such as Australia, or better methods of hunting and fishing, or agriculture, or pest control, or ... etc.

Long periods of cultural stasis would have corresponded to long periods of stasis in population.

Re: Here is some evidence for you...
Mmm, but Coyote, what about the all knowing math that you folks keep touting? Which trumps; the dating or the math?

As a mathematician, I am of course the earthly representative of the All-Knowing Math (praise be unto it) and I can tell you that the All-Knowing Math says that creationists are talking crap on this as on every other issue.

All hail the All-Knowing Math! Now shut your pie-hole or it'll smite you with a plague of logarithms.
