In Response To: Re: Patriarch Longevity ()

I too believe Erol, that somehow a few people enjoyed extended life spans in the distant past. I am reminded of Abraham and Sarah giving birth to a child at an age when anyone else would be considering only their death. I agree with Charles that at least some of the lifespans are symbolic, yet I also think that in general the Old Testament patriarchs were on to something.
