Excuse me if this topic has come up before, but I couldn't find anything that touches on this topic. What I am referring to is the rapid increase in population. If the total population on earth stayed the same over time, the math is quite simple. Simply souls repeating the cycle. However there is an expotential increase happening. So how does the math add up? Where do the extra souls come from? I have a couple of theories, but I am interested in others thoughts.
