    I shall surely bless you and I shall surely multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens and like the grains of sand that are on the seashore; and your seed will take possession of the gate of his enemies.

    what's crazy is that jews and a lot of arab muslims claim to be from the seed of abraham, jews through issac, arab muslims through ishmael.

    I work with these things, I was not ironic, I was just asking if you calculated with a 50-50 proportion between girls and boys.

    yes roughly, that is. There is some slight variability (the values are not hardcoded but drawn randomly with a 50% probability). The overall result is something very very close to 50% for boys and 50% for girls.

    Aren't we forgetting that anyone biblical will have started a war or slaughtered anyone living in the next valley every few years. I reckon there would be 10 people at the end, tops.

    How about we do it this way.
    Six generations of thirty years approx (total of 180 years), during which say eight kids are produced and live to a ripe old age, with potentially four females. Discounting Noah's wife, and that women often give birth before age of 30:

    Females / Total Population

    1. 3 / 8
    2. 12 / 32
    3. 48 / 128
    4. 192 / 512
    5. 768 / 2048
    6. 3072 / 8192
