Uhm, no. One cell would cells, which creates more cells, which create more cells…
So even if one cell can only create 81 trillion, every 15 minutes, that number doubles, and again, and again.

exactly and replacing your estimates with the new equation. (1/2)*(1/22.5)*(1.8396*10^15)^2
it comes out to 3.384*10^30 cells
thats 3 quintillion cells and thats before figuring in reproduction. theres probably a good reason youre not a scientist man.

so in actuality were looking a around 10 quadrillion generations before us. i dont think that could have happened in 6000 years

what itssnowing means to say is that cells grow exponentially 1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,…. so basically from one cell it would take about 17.5 hours to grow a human providing of course no cells died, which they do.

The problem with your whole equation is you forgot the final part, since cells double in number the way to work it out would be 2 to the power of 81 trillion, not whatever irkslothy person was talking about coz thats some long way
