Response to NoOneMan (Reply #38)

39. Yeah that is what I am wrestling with, ...

At sixty years of age I have reproduced, my son has reproduced, and now my grandson. OK, I die tomorrow, at the age of sixty years and one day. There are still three people living from my seed in that sixty years, the oldest with another twenty years to live.

It seems to me zero growth would be more in the range of one child per family.

Might be time for me to read up on some studies and their methodology. I still can't see zero growth from a two child family, unless people do not reproduce until very late in their child bearing years.

on edit: corrected the first paragraph.
