Centenarians and longevity
If you look at the Old Testament you will find that Adam and his six children lived for more than nine hundred years. Methuselah is documented as a nine hundred and ninety-six year old while Lamech was seven hundred and seventy-seven years old and his first son reached the age of one hundred and seventy-eight years old. Noah lived for over nine hundred years; he was six hundred years living on the Ark. Moses died at the age of one hundred and twenty years.
Most scientists dispute these claims, although one of them, C. Edward Burtis, had to admit, after a life-long study, that the age mentioned for Moses was correct. These great ages were partly made possible because of their life style and a special diet which had to be enforced rigidly.
