According to the graph, the population was very steady for a long time. They were probably guessing about that, though.

I'll bet a dime to a dollar that the population has increased because of our limited wars and the accuracy of our weapons. Then again it could be we are much better at recognizing and containing major deadly medical outbreaks and keeping people alive with meds that left on their own would die...

Well, at least we can thank our lucky stars the tree huggers got their way and DDT was banned because if they hadn't think of how many more people would be alive today.....

The whole thing is nothing but a guess.

Sure. Take for example that twins could be born at the same time. There's no way to determine which is which...

BS. Spurious exactitude. If I enter my birth date and then the next date, there is a differential of 65,250, supposedly the number born on my birth date. But it didn't even ask me the time of day, so I was just a random one of the 65,250 born that day.

The number who have been born during my lifetime is 8,631,540,442.
