Age: another biblical booboo to add to the pile
Hey, so it just struck me:

Adam and Noah are said to be 600 years old, but Abraham (in between) turning 50 is such a big thing, we use it as an expression 6000 years later? Whats up with that?
And their age being 10% of that of the planet is also pretty hilarious.

Considering Adam lived to be 930 years old, he would've been able to show up in Egypt and greet the earliest Kings of Egypt and have a beer with them.

Adam also had a 14 inch wang and starred in the first gay porn 'Forbidden Fruit'.

OP,
Please explain "in between". Abraham lived after Noah and the flood and he lived to be 175 years old.

Oh, must have my order mixed up, meh.
But still, why do we cite Abraham when turning 50? Adam and Mozes got there first.

Huh

I can't think of any modern expressions that involve Abraham turning 50. What expression are you referring to?

Somehow I seriously doubt humans can live much longer than we typically do now...

Stuff just wears out... The joints start to ache and fall apart after middle age, eyesight and hearing start to fail too.

After 600 years there'd be nothing left of you.

Could you imagine how saggy boobs and butts would be at that age?

At that sort of age I'd be tripping over my own bollocks.

That could explain why Noah didn't even get horny until he was 500 years old.

Gen 5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Those were the sons he took with him on the ark a century later when he was 600 years old and they were 100 years old. So not only did it take Noah half a millenium to get hard, he presumably never got hard again. It really makes one wonder just how many people there actually were in the world, if it took hundreds of years for men to even start to feel frisky. The flood of fable may have been less a wholesale annihilation than just a routine mass murder.
