Re: What happened to the Romulan Empire after Romulus was destroyed

I have already shown evidence. You just don't want to look at it; you only look for what you want to believe.

About USA
"76 million in 1900 to 281 million in 2000. It reached the 200 million mark in 1967, and the 300 million mark on October 17, 2006"
Does this look like an exponential curve to you?

Let's use the malthusian equation:
0,02 growth "per year"
112 years since 1900:
(76000000)*((2,71828182846)^(0,02*112))
N=713893177

You fall short by some margin with a mere 300 million.
And that's counting immigration as legitimate multiplication of the population - which, for the purposes of this discussion, it is NOT.

BTW, the demographic trend now in developed countries is negative, NOT positive.

Malthus was wrong - proved decisively by demographic history. Indeed, ANY prediction of continuing exponential curves in the real world was wrong.
Your imitation is also wrong.
Deal with it already!
