Population Number needs to be changed in the presentation

Chris Can you doublecheck the number of years it takes to get to 2 Bill? When I ran the numbers in Excel I show that the 2 Billion figure is hit in 69 years, not 100. Small detail, but one that a critic can use to try and invalidate the whole presentation.

 I have attached an Excel  SS outlining the calcs.

Thanks for taking the initiative to get this site up and running. I look forward to reading through all the material and getting prepared for *whatever* is going to happen.

Gak - thanks for the fact check.


You are absolutely right.  And you know what's strange?

When I went to my spread sheet I found this.

                      YEARS between the billions

1000   694       694
2000   764       70
3000   805       41
4000   834       29
5000   856       22
6000   874       18

I have no idea how I goofed the translation from calculation to presentation.

You're human :)

 I do it all the time when I am teaching. That is one thing that I liked about your site, it appears that everything you are doing is *FACT* driven, not emotion or ideology. As  I am sure that you have already found out, whenever you challenge the conventional wisdom everything that you say, write or even speculate on has to be defendable and logical to answer the calls of the critics.

 Again, keep up the good work, and I will continue to work through the presentation and report my findings.

 Thx,
