While it is certainly possible that the human line could be traced wholesale back to around 500AD, the idea that the entirety of humanity is descended from two individuals from such recent a pairing is patently ridiculous.

Hi Phage,

If anyone is using the pop. models to argue Adam and Eve's existance, then their arguement is amazingly flawed. However, you can quite easily use those models to argue that humans have NOT been in existance for millions of years, as suggested by evolutionary teaching. This is a fair arguement, with logical and documented evidence. Though the population growth would FIT with the Biblical teaching, it would also fit with countless other religious, and even many scientific beliefs. This would be an arguement against evolution, not for creation or christianity.

Can someone point me to the graphs everyone is speaking of? I'm having difficulty finding the resources for the claim.
