I believe it. If you weren't killed by a weapon, you were killed by disease.

It lists the time frame as a couple centuries. Perhaps it is possible over that time. It seems like for it to be that high though the white man deaths related to the warfare and disease would also be counted.


Most of the South and Central American natives were wiped out.

No doubt

Have you ever read about their express execution vans?

Also of note from the link below

quote:

Watchdog groups believe that actual execution numbers greatly exceed officially recorded executions; in 2009, the Dui Hua Foundation estimated that 5,000 people were executed in China — far more than all other nations combined.[2] The precise number of executions is regarded as a state secret.


If there is one thing that the Chinese are good at, it's killing people.

The numbers seem to be extremely high.

The morbidly obese member of TD.com agrees with you.

Seems to me most estimates of pre columbian America are less than 50 million. Even with Europeans coming and a couple of centuries to account for, I thnk 100 million seems a bit high.

More than anyone else on TD since for over 20 years of my life I have lived less than 1 mile from a reservation but I doubt there were even 100 million people in the Americas back then. I could be wrong though.

Population estimates from that time make it difficult to believe. I think you would have to assume the highest estimates to come close to those numbers. LINK

Most estimates are far below 50 million

Exactly. Even if there were 100 million people, which I HIGHLY doubt, all of them didn't die because of us.

Good info.

I never have seen population estimates before.

China ones are much more believable because there are like five billion of them.

How?

Simple math

Look at population growth. Global population growth spiked with the dawn of the industrial revolution.

Before that global population started an upward trend in the middle of the 14th century following the black death. At the time there were an estimated 350-400 million people on the planet. We know that the bulk of that population existed in the Ancient world in Africa, Asia, and Europe.

The idea that there were even 100 million people available to kill in the Americas a mere 100 years later is just laughably absurd. 100% complete genocide of both continents before the Europeans came on board won't get you to 100 million.
