    I believe that we will find that the reason some people are listed as livine to a great age is that an error was made in how to list different counting systems...a modern example of whjat i think is going on is if I told you that Im selling something on Ebay, and list the price in both American and in Canadian dollars....only to have someone later report my listing by adding-up the American dollars to the Canadian dollars.....and saying Im asking for something at this wild price.

    I learned of this idea back when I was in Bible school and we were assigned a study of the numbers used in the Old test, and I started to read some of the works by leading translators...

    It turns out that the idea that the age numbers are a error due to wronging translated two or more different listings of how people count over the ages and how that has changed, has been widely talked about in higher Christian schools of translation...and is a topic that translators do debate.
    Wouldn't you then have to question all the counting we see in the Old Testament record? Size of armies, numbers of people in various tribes, quantities of gold and silver and other riches, numbers of animals sacrificed on holy day's etc.?

    This is a matter of debate among the higher schools of Bible translation.

    What I remember is that there was a work written that discussed the numbers and that the writer made a strong case in the verses he was looking at , that the number listed in a modern translation stems from a misunderstanding of the way several number systems were included in the text over the years.

    It was like :...should I measure something to be read in America and then in Canada....the way we count is different than the way they count in Canada due to the metric system...
    The writer of the work I remember reading made a strong case that the Bible's number is actually a combination of different ways to count the same age.



    This is a subject that Im sure big minds in the church will have to dig deeper into and perhaps one day there will be a finding...



    What we want in the end is the real truth...regardless of the many traditions that spring up over the years that might rely on numbers that later turn out to be misunderstood.

    I remember learning during my 8-week ORIGINS class, about cave paintings, but the truth is, its like looking at clouds...some people see a rabbit driving a rocket in a cloud formation, while the next person sees a chair on a table when they look at the same clouds.



    But I believe that if you want to make a great claim, then you need great proof....

    There is none to support the idea that some dinosaurs lived to the age of modern man....(except for birds etc...there is strong support for the idea that over time and via evolution, that our birds of today can be traced back to the age of the dinos...)
    I know those caves and fissures exist, I have done studies on them. the cave paintings are misdated and misinterpreted. there is no evidence that shows that dinosaurs did NOT live side by side with man.

    yes, so does the claim that dinosaurs died out 60 million years ago. the evidence so far presented by evolutionists does not do the trick.

    Its sorta like looking at the clouds in the sky, and one person sees it looks like a rabbit, but the next guy looks at the same cloud and sees a viking ship.
