Yes, All These People Originally Came from Two

Depending on where you stand — sometimes literally — this world can seem densely populated, especially if you are in the East. Out in, say, the Wyoming territory or up Alaska way, there are not so many people doing the sardine in a can thing. We have 7.2 billion people, and they could all fit uncomfortably in New Zealand, a bit more comfortably in Texas, and so forth. The Bible tells us that we are all descended from Noah's family. Before that, we go back to Adam and Eve.

The biblical account of the population of the earth from two people is logical and consistent.

Some folks, especially atheists and evolutionists, commence to fretting about our Adamic origin. They say it's not possible, but that assertion is prejudicial conjecture based on evoporn. They also insert their naturalistic presuppositions into the biblical discussion, refusing to let Christians present the answer according to our presuppositions. Worse, their evolutionary views have no scientific support and are based on incoherent Just So Stories involving a Big Bang, accretion to form Earth and other planets, a dearth of the millions of bodies from our alleged ancestors, and more. The population account based on recent creation from Genesis is consistent, while evolutionary views are incoherent.
The Bible states that 2 people can populate a planet to 7 billion. That’s impossible
Where does the Bible say this? The Bible states that God commanded man to fill the earth (e.g., Genesis 1:28, 9:1, and 9:7)—which is far more than 7 billion!

But the claim that it is impossible to get seven billion descendants from two people is 100% wrong. The Bible reveals that God, who is all-powerful, created two people initially (Genesis 1)—a man and woman (Genesis 1:26–27) called Adam and Eve (e.g., Genesis 2:19, 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:13). Adam was the first man (1 Corinthians 15:45), and Eve was the mother of all the living (Genesis 3:20).
