I'll assume that you're right about some relatively large number of
people being around, but where does it speak of billions?  (I suspect
that you're right, but I can't recall any verses offhand that speak of
a population quite that level).

If, for example, 99% of the population were to be killed off by some
human-caused event, there'd still be enough people left to bring the
population back to it's current level in a while, if a billion is the
required level.  Groups of people have believed that they were in the
"end times" at many points in history.
