I'm sure that's not right. I haven't Googled so I'm sticking my neck out but I'm pretty damn sure reading the dead outnumber the living by .....errrr. .....I won't stick my neck out further...... but by many to one. Will Google when I have time
Just googled and not easy to find a 'fact' but, on one 'scientific' site , it says there have been 108 Billion 'humans' in the previous 50,000 years of homo sap.(2017 article).
So 15 zombies for each of us (including babies) to fight, come the day!
Also says that population is forecast to peak and level (20 billion? year 2200?) so dead will always outnumber the living.
Always and forever ... as the song put it!
