Adam lived how long!?
So, I'm reading the Bible wholly for the first time (this is my -nth attempt, lol. I've never made it past Genesis but I think I can make it this time using the Skeptics Annotated Bible).

Anyways, I ran into the "begats" of Adam. I know that the oldest living person we have recorded to be 122 years. But is it at least possible for someone to live up to 500 years. I mean, wouldn't cells just start to die and stuff (bones breaking, etc.)

I ran into a creationsist site and it said that in those times diseases and illnesses weren't widespread as they are now, allowing people to live longer. This sounds like bs to me. what are your opinions on the issue?

There was no Adam. There was no Moses. There is no reason to address this.

I love you!


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

And there was no jesus or mohammed.

Joseph Smith and L. Ron Hubbard were real, however.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Nope. Either there were NO diseases or illnesses or there were. There are no fossils of humans or any other species which demonstrate any such ages, and we know dinosaurs got cancers. The word "Adam" came from the "sublime world of the light" from Hebrew thought :

With magic, or just making stuff up, anything is possible!

I heard Adam lived to about 900 or something. I think the idea of people living much longer in the past is another attempt by christianity to make us feel we're inferior and have ruined everything, so we feel shame and seek redemption.

Considering it was meant to be just 6000 years ago and we evolved from Adam and stuff, no this is next to impossible.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

RE: Adam lived how long!?
Look to any primitive society - with no medicine, no doctors, and not a toothbrush to be found.

An "old" guy in the tribe? Anybody with white hair. Say in your 40's.

Ancient? -- Maybe 60's.


Any claims of 900 years old - is just bullshit -- made up to impress the gullible.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
