    The interesting thing about English language Bibles is that the authors of the King James Bible includes an eight thousand word preface that states how hard it is to translate the Bible into English and to not use the English translation for dogma.
    The second series of questions that arises from your post is: If in fact this part of the bible is just plain incorrect, then what other parts are, and who decides which parts are really the word of god and which parts are a mistake some men made?

    Don't tell me that "years" somehow means something different back then, because that point simply eviscerates the idea that they had a hundred of OUR years to make the ark.
    Ok, so he had 100 years. Still a boat the size of a modern aircraft carrier with bronze age tools? And where in the middle east would all that lumber come from? The last question I am not sure about, maybe there were such stands of timber, but there are all kinds of bible stories about being lost in deserts but none about being lost in forests.

    Really? That's what you're going with?

    I'm used to dealing with fiction, so imaginary time doesn't throw me--but you're pretty inconsistent and arbitrary in your assumptions when reading this text.
    I told you that you wouldn't be able to figure this out with 21st century thinking.

    What other kind of thinking is there? You really want to think like the Middle Ages? You want the consequence of that? You ready to be a serf?

    you look around you and see a person living to be 100 years old and figure that has always been the case that humans live that long. You are using 21 century evidence to make conclusions on How long people lived 4 thousand years ago

    I think it pretty obvious here. Noah's three sons were actually class 5 mutants ala Magneto and Jean Grey rebuilding the school in Apocalypse

    What reason is there to believe they lived to be hundreds of years older some time in the past, other than this text? Lifespans have gotten LONGER as we have ended communicable disease, but few live to be 100, even. Those who DO live a long time find their bodies wear out so much they can't do very much at all. You want us to believe that not only people lived to be 10x+ as old as we do today AND they remained physically young and virile?

    Seriously? With no evidence other than this text, which we could be misinterpreting (because words and numbers are slipperier than age-related degeneration)?

    In fact, many modern biblical scholars are saying that Jesus was not a carpenter at all, he was a stonemason.

    Science can determine the approximate age of death from remains such as the Egyptian Mummies, and none were 900 years old when they died. And, incidentally, the Biblical Flood occurred around the same time as the Egyptians were building the Great Pyramids....and no record of any floods other than the Nile every year...

    All anthropological research indicates the trend was the opposite way with much shorter lifespans then.
