RE: Yours favorite arguments for creationism
If man has been on this earth for millions of years, then why, if you calculate the current world's population and factor it backwards, does modern man begin to expand only about 3500 years ago?

Homo sapiens has existed for about 200,000 years. The development of agriculture and husbandry allowed settlement and population growth.

Why then do we find artifacts such as Egyptian writings on walls and evidence of human culture dating back to that time (about 3000 years ago) and not, lets say, 10,000 years ago?
Thanks for answering ...

Because that was about the time that humans developed agriculture and stopped being nomads.

Have you read any science books?

So, according to you math, the world's population grew at a rate of about 1200 people each year from -200000 to 1AD, then after that, human population has grown about 35 million a year.
Pure atheists logic- makes no sense. When are you people going to admit you are fools?

Population growth is non-linear and not monotonic. Your calculation is suspect.

I realize my calculations were a generalization, but still, tell me where, before 3500 BC that we have evidence of language, communication, or civilization for that matter. This is a far cry from 200,000 years ago.

You have clearly not read any science books.

Start here.

There are useful links at the end of the article.

Agriculture... for much of Mandkind's early existence we were hunter/gatherers. Is the "factoring back" also the same sort of faulty "math" used to calculate Moon dust layers to get the age of the Earth?

Plus most of our population growth has ben quite recent. Before WWII it was around 2 billion, since WWII it is now around 7 Billion. Better medicinces and agriculture through science.

What truly makes no sense is your dream logic and how you love to molest math.
