FD, your reasoning is sound.
But, I believe until this is fulfilled:
God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth
...that the earth will be in it's state of good/bad flux, until the earth is FILLED according to an actual number of conceived people that God had pre-conceived in mind.
The seed (Adam and Eve) will have to grow (all other people) to fullness before the good/bad harvest.
