How come the UN can figure out that this baby is the 7 billionth baby in the world! How did they, then, prove it?

This is clearly not the "world's 7 billionth baby" if we've reached 7 billion living persons, otherwise we'd all have to be immortal.

Why choose this particular baby, when there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 babies being born every second? Clearly there's no way to know that this is exactly the seven billionth, so I'd be interested in knowing the criteria used.

I think it is only an ESTIMATE.

Yeah, I kinda think its not a valid thing to choose who is the 7th billion baby, since its completaly impossible to know. Why even bother and not just give the money they wasted to something useful?

How can the UN possibly know that this is the 7 billionth person?
