The human life span changes in the Bible - Why?


The human life span changes in the Bible from almost 1,000 years (Noah died at the age of 950 or 350 years after the flood) to 120 years for Moses. Is this fact or fiction? And if true why does our human life span change so dramatically?

    We need not follow the literal Genesis calendar of events. Ussher's 2348 BC for the Flood is wrong. Too many people lived shortly after this date that Ussher didn't know about.

    I never suggested that lunar months as years was the answer, only that some one once used that system to work out, that when converted to solar years made more sense.

    And you base your statement on what? Did you interview the writers? While I concede your "idea" is plausible, it's not the only possibility.

    The incredible ages may have been that of eponymous tribes, not their founders

    Not really. Clever, but Lunar to Solar conversion makes some of those early patriarchs die before they reach their teens! See my answer. We need to go in the opposite direction. Science is the key. Humanity is far older than 6000 years!
