|Long life spans: "Adam lived 930 years and then he died" New discoveries in the biochemistry of aging support the Biblical record|
"Adam lived 930 years and then he died." The mere assertion that humans could live more than 900 years -as Genesis 5:5 states-seems, for many people, nothing short of absurdity. The mention of long life spans in Genesis 5 hinders these people from openly exploring the Christian faith. Unable to accept 900-year human life spans, skeptics and other view the Bible as unreliable, a book of human myth rather than divine revelation.
