1,000,000,000 is the natural number following 999,999,999 and preceding 1,000,000,001. In scientific notation, it is written as "1 × 10⁹". Previously in British English, the word "billion" referred to a million millions. However, this is no longer the case, and the word has been used unambiguously to mean one thousand million for some time. The alternative term "one thousand million" is rare and is used primarily to ease understanding among non-native speakers of English, as many other languages use words similar to "billion" to mean one trillion. In the South Asian numbering system, it is known as 100 crore or 1 arab. The term milliard can also be used to refer to 1,000,000,000; though "milliard" is very seldom used in English, variations on this name often appear in other languages.

What I am going to say may appear narcissistic, but it's true. If you want to see a miracle, all you have to do is just look in the mirror, and you will see the greatest miracle in this world: The Human Body, the amazingly wondrous creation of Supreme Power, in my view. The process of creation of human body begins with the union of sperm and ovum in the womb of a woman. It's just a beginning of the greatest miracle, because almost immediately begins the creation of thousands of millions of body cells, which in fact build the most complicated tissues, complex organs, and exceptionally intricate systems of the human body. Interestingly there are about one octillion cells in adult human body, which can be written as 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. And now comes the astounding fact: all these one thousand trillion trillion cells are created by only fifty consecutive replications of just one cell. Wow! That's what I consider miracle, created by none other than Supreme Power!
