The earth is 4.6 Billion Years old, not 2019 years old.

And the population explosion happened due to increased standards of living, better medicine, and better crop yields from technological growth from the Industrial Age.

Are you sure you are old enough to use the computer in your house?  Does your Mommy and Daddy tell you about staying away from that evil machine?  You should listen.

The earth is 4.5 billion years old. The number AD 2019 refers to how many years have passed since the birth of Jesus of Nazareth using the Roman calendar.  Other cultures use different calendars. Currently there are 7 billion people, even though there is a pandemic.

It must be wonderful to live in a world of your own making, secure in the knowledge that all the idiots are on the outside. When your IQ is the same as your shoe size it is not difficult to retreat into your own world. Keep up the good work, study hard, and eventually when you are thirteen or so you can go to a state college and get a masters degree in ice skating or toilet cleaning in Mac Donald's.

Imagine there was a single pair of humans 6000 years ago. With a modest average annual growth rate of only 0.5% there could be around 20Trillion people today!

Clearly there have been disasters, wars, famine, pestilence, that have prevented even that modest growth rate from being achieved.

The Earth is not 2019 years old, it is 4.54 billion years old.

There are currently 7.8 billion people because the birth rate is higher than the death rate.

You make a very good case for it being only 2019 years old if we are still breeding idiots like you.  Another million years, and you might discover intelligence.
