Gensis Ages - Humanely Possible?
Posted 09 May 2003 - 10:46 AM
I have several questions:
1. Could humans 5000 or 6000 years ago have lived longer than we do today? How do we know what the average life expectancy was for these people?
2. Is it possible in the future for humans to live more than 120 years?
3. Why is it that we age at the rate that we do? I know it is different for each person, but most people do not live past the age of 90. Why is that?

Here's a gift for you - I think you'll love this web site:
The Biblical Ages of the Patriarchs
I suggest you try out all the creationist issues with that site first.
Question 2 and 3 are easier to answer:
2) People already live to be 120. You can even find lists of people on the web. As for what the future brings...here is a rather technical speech on the future of aging
3) Aging is not specific to people - it is something we see in every living being. People age differently because they react to the environment in which they live, and the genes they are born with. Here's a good link on aging: Why Are We Allowed to Age?

also this makes the bible more relevant to peoples of all eras. any other way would become irrelevant to peoples of succeeding generations and not stand the test of time, as it has for so long now.

When travelling China the poor were still going shopping for groceries every day well into their 90s
The elderly of the west are placed in care-homes and many are left in a vegetative state in their 70s
All this goes back to the alchemists-----
The west wanted to turn base metal into gold (and we still live this money-grabbing life-style)
The east wanted long and healthy lives and formed Chi Kung
I have a friend who has practiced Chi Kung and Tai Chi for many years. He is 78 yrs old and 58kgs.
he throws my 75kg- 28 year old body all over the place!
THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD AIM FOR ----- a HEALTHY old age
