Nonsense of Noah


4.3.1. Population
How many people were alive at the time of the flood.?

THE POINT!
There were so few people alive at the time of the flood that there could not have been any semblance of a civilization. Therefore, no tools or knowledge of how to build an Ark - especially for a hunter-gatherer.


Noah was the 10th generation after Adam. Population experts put the number of people born from two people after 10 generations at 100,000 My figures concur with "population experts".


Here's my calculation that supports the above figure.

There were a number of factors that would limit the growth of the population.

Since dinasours were alive at the same time, they would have been a problem for human life.
Childbirth mortality rates would have to have been very high.
Genesis

3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.



Maintaining a child until s/he could make it alone would be very time consuming since no diapers, no baby food, extreme difficulty in finding, preparing food.

Genesis

3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
