From what I understand, the long lifetimes in Genesis are due to a mis-translation that substituted solar cycles for lunar ones. Since there are 13.5 lunar cycles per solar cycle, this wouls mean that Methuselah was 72 when he died, a much more reasonable age than 969. Also, the ages at which people have their children seem much more reasonable too.

This would mean that the earth is much less than 6000 years old.

Methuselah

Noah would have been 37 when his sons were born, not 500.
And he was 44 at the flood, not 600.


There does come a problem with this wrt to Abraham and Sarah.

How does this lineage account for the native american indians?
Wouldn't evolution had to occur to make them change from white jews to native american (same for australia aboriginal,...)

You need to read through the Forum Rules about equivocation about evolution.

Edit: This is a christian forum. There is no promotion of new age stuff, or eastern religions.

Just a side note: Hitler also thought this way, and supported evolution. And we all know where that went.

Not to step on any toes 92g when I ask pch this question:

What human race do you consider a higher race, and which are the lower ones? Does the Hitler hit list seem about right?

And I wonder where Hitler got the ape idea from?

ASIDE - I think your drawing a very long bow comparing the political aspirations of a tyrant and evidence. For example if Hitler had indeed thought the oriental one removed from an ape he would have had to (indeed did) perform some mental gymnastics to become allied with the Japanese.

It was being suggested in a round about way. I just wanted the poster to know that I knew what he was trying to imply. And to see if he would expose his real thoughts about it.

When people are desperate in war times. They will sometimes make allies for their own gain. And when it achieved, break it off. WW2 was a desperate war that could have been a lot worse, with a worse out come.

I do believe you have just made my point for me (swap allies for philosophy)
