A well dating from 8,500 years ago, with the bones of two prehistoric people inside, was uncovered during recent excavations in the Jezreel Valley, the Israel Antiquities Authority said on Thursday.

Archaeologists working on the Neolithic-period site found the skeletal remains of a young woman estimated to be about 19 years of age along with those of an older man at the bottom of the eight-meter deep well. Researchers do not know how the two came to their resting place at the bottom of the pit.

Wonder why they were put there?  They had to of known a decaying body would contaminate the water.  Could of been marauders.

Where in the Bible does it say that man is 5000 years old? If it does, then I need to go back and read that chapter.  

As for the bodies in the well, I wonder if it was a war party that threw them in the well to poison it.  Sometimes it was a tactic used.  An enemy would come in, kill everyone, loot and throw people alive or dead into the well to contaminate it making sure that any survivors would not be able to survive there once the enemy left.

I agree with the other posters that the Bible does not say the Earth is 5000 years old. It is various Bible scholars that have attempted to place a date on the Creation of the Earth.

Add up all the "begats", multiply by an arbitrary 25 years per generation, ignore any possible errors and omissions and voila! Not nearly as interesting as the old guy in a well with a 19 year old ;)

Yeah, but all them Patriarchs lived to be 800+ years old, so when those kids came along is a big guess. :innocent:

Maybe they both went for a little skinny dip and the Missus did not approve?

Maybe he wanted to go clam diving, and the rest of the village didn't agree with his taste in clam-years, which are like dog-years for the seasoned ped-...
So I'm sure something dramatic must have transpired here.
