From now on, every couple can only have one child, no adoption or abandoning, one child per couple.

So now, for every birth, two people die. (not immediately of course)

Based on the average length of life on the human, and the world population today, how long Until the human race is extinct?
#3
Never. Because if the human race was really very close to extinction, the rules would be abolished or ignored... of course, you could probably work it out mathematically using average birth rates, and maths.

Every 80 years, the population halves.
7,000,000,000
80 years, 35,000,000,000
160 years, 17500000000
etc.
geometric sequence
(log(1/7000000000) / log(0.5)) + 1
= 15
therefore 15*80, which equals about 1200 years

I have a child, divorce the bitch then have another child with a different, but equally drugged and insensate, woman.

7 billion people, say 2,5 billion are part of a 30 year gap that'd equal one generation.
It takes 30 generations to reach 1 person, so that's 900 years.

Disclaimer; My math isn't credible. At all.

it wouldn't be stunted. man meets woman, couple have baby, man moves on and sexes up with another lady to form a brand new couple. so the human race remains the way it is except men have a licence to resort to their old hunter ways.

You didn't do any maths, therefore you're an idiot too.

it's a riddle. the correct answer is embedded in the omitted meanings in the question. 'one baby per couple', whilst deviantly omitting the 'but not one baby per two people'.

nope. I didn't say "anyone who posts in this thread but doesn't post maths is an idiot". I said "You guys are all idiots". There is no way you can say that I am included in what I said.

Point is, all this inane stuff about "if the population was close to extinction the rules would change" or "man would revert back to his role as a hunter" is stupid and immature and was just selfish.

All right fine. You didn't include yourself. I am. Welcome to the club idiot.
