George, the source you cite indicates that the total number until 2002 was about 106 Billion (106,456,367,669). The number for 1A.D. is, as you reported, around 46 Billion. The error was about the cumulative number until the present time.

Thank you for the link. The numbers I had found were mostly in forum discussions or pages like this one. As I said, I didn't find any authoritative data.
