Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone here knows the formula for the growth of a human population. I was asking because if we take the typical Fundamentalist world age of 6000 years, and the average generation to be 18 or so years, how many children would have to have been in the average family for good ol' Adam and Eve to beget six billion children in six thousand years? I've never heard this quoted in an argument before, but it might bear investigating, if nothing else than for the sake of amusement.
