In the bible it says people lived to be  many hundreds of years old ( Methuselah lived 969 years [Genesis 5:27] .  Is there any solid proof of people living this long?

I thought back then they had a shorter life expectancy than we do now.

When you think about these things it becomes clear one has to see time relatively. What is a year too us might be 12 to them. If one would take that logic one would only have to be 76 years old to reach 920 years.

I have often thought about this. Due to the number of things we do not know about the past, it is kind of impossible to tell.
In my mind, if this did happen, it may well be due to reincarnation beliefs, so one king ruling for 1000's of years, would be possible if they thought that the king had been reincarnated a number of times.
Another possible reason is manna. I know god apparently gave a machine to the Israelites when they were in the desert. Well he did not give them a machine as such in the bible, but from other sources a machine is possible. Also this relies on 'God' being a being from another planet/future, but it is feasible that 'aliens' would have this kind of technology to create a food source which is so pure that it could sustain life to its full potential. Even prolonging it. But who is to say if 100 years is supposed to be our limit?
Although, for certain .. a year back then is the same as a year now.  They knew so much about stars and seasons, and these are still the same now. (although less than a millisecond, a really tiny little bit of time, is gained each year, but even in 10.00000 years, this would still not be noticeable atall.)

Any proof of anyone living to be hundreds of years old. Today we have people that live to be just over a hundred.

None whatsoever.


Also, no proof of any Israelite captivity/ exodus from Egypt either.

I think they where calling the moons back then years, it's the only logical conclusion.  12-13 moons in one year of ours, times 70 (average life span roughly) you would get 840-910.  Somebody who lived to 100 (our time) would be 1200-1300 in moons.

Methuselah would have been 77, which is far more logical to understand.

The state only accepts original birth certificates as proof of age and these have only been around 160 years in the UK.

There are gravestones in old graveyards with peoples lifespan recorded as 200 even 300 years. Church records of saints etc also have some living several hundred years. Some Chinese emperors are recorded as being several hundred years old at death too.

Do you have any pics of these gravestones ?  I have never seen any that old.

That really does make alot more sense than them living to be 900 + years.  Could you imagine having to keep up with how many moons old you are?

As far as gravestones with 200-300 year spans, I don't know. But I tell my grandkids that my life goes back seven decades, which is misleading but no lie. I'm 55.
The moons make a lot of sense though. Anyone remember F-Troop?

It's just made up stories, there's not proof whatsoever. The bible is a story book.
