  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

She was 27 when World War One erupted, 75 when John F. Kennedy was shot and nearly 100 when the Berlin Wall came down.

Now Leandra Becerra Lumbreras is celebrating her latest milestone - becoming the oldest person who has ever lived.

According to relatives and friends, the chocolate-loving Mexican marks her 127th birthday today.

What a shame she lost her birth cerificate so long ago. Couldn't she obtain another one? I'm sure they had a copy of her time of birth somewhere at a hospital or in a record book.

This article is nonsense! It is common knowledge that the people mentioned in the Bible (before the Flood) often lived hundreds of years, even 1000 years of age was common.

Seems to me that if there is a birth certificate listing her as the parent of one of her children, who has to be over 100 years old, that would confirm her being at least 15 years older then the child.

Seems to me that if she has so many descendants, that one of them would have a good set of paperwork going back to their grandmother at least, and establish a birth date of some of Lendra's children.

Wait... I says she was never married, but had 5 children? Isn't that hard to believe of 19th century Mexico? I thought the 19th century Spanish Mexicans were big on marriage?

I don't doubt the government wouldn't have records but would the Catholic church have any records?

I used to work for a Jewish doctor and when someone made this same remark he stated that the Hebrew calendar was different, which caused the calculation for years to be wrong.  I'd like to hear from anyone out there that can explain this further.

  • You can't just choose to believe something.

    Believing in something doesn't make it true.

I posted this on another thread recently. This is the list I will trust. She and/or her family need to come up with proof or it isn't true. If true this would best the all time record by several years. These stories always pop up from time to time and then fade away without proof....

Maybe they could just take a core sample and count the rings?
