Quote# 50889

According to the Bible Adam lived a really long time. About 900 years or so. Science does confirm that in a perfect world, we have that capability because we do regenerate and we regenerated faster when the earth was cleaner. How about that for scientific facts?

Anyway, in 900 years, you could have an awful lot of kids. The Bible says Adam did have a lot of kids after Cain and Abel. In a perfect world, genetics of incest wouldn't have been a problem, especially if the copulation took place among people who were spread out so many years apart. Just saying... hypothetically speaking.

"Science does confirm that..."

One, evidence please.
Two, "...in a perfect world..."

In a perfect world, you'd have thought your arguments through before exposing your stupidity to the world. But here we are.

You fail at genetics. Siblings are still 50% related no matter how big the age difference is.

Genetics don't generally change as people age.

If you could back up any of your 'science,' maybe it would be worth something.

ps. 900 years is more than ten times as long as the average lifespan today, even if you go from a country with good healthcare. If you really think that the Earth being 'cleaner' will make that much difference, why not test it by getting someone to live in a cleanroom?

Who wants to sleep with a 900 year old man anyway?

Even fundies should know that the crazy lifespans given in the Bible are generally agreed to be a mistranslation of years and months. That would give Adam a perfectly believable age of 75, and others up to 90.

Oh, infalibilty of the KJV, nevermind. It's right even if the Hebrew disagrees!

She also one time quoted FDR as a founding father.

900 months makes more sense. I suspect an error crept into the translation, kinda like the big one about the virgin mother.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that Adam and Eve had kids after the fall and so it wasn't a 'perfect' world.

"How about that for scientific facts? "

Pretty shit, actually.

Someone has no comprehension of how genetics work. Also, if people lived longer when the earth was "cleaner" then why were people lucky to live until their 30s in the distant past?

Lessee...

"According to the Bible Adam lived a really long time."

True

"About 900 years or so."

Sentence fragment, consider revising. Also ridiculous.

"Science does confirm that in a perfect world, we have that capability because we do regenerate and we regenerated faster when the earth was cleaner."

Oh. You must be talking about the Lizard People. The Bible wasn't written for the Lizard People. Also, the lack of litterbugs does not automatically mean the world was cleaner. Ever visit a volcano? Plenty of germs too. The world is partly made of freakin' dirt after all.

"Anyway, in 900 years, you could have an awful lot of kids."

I'd rather have them now and get it out of the way.

"The Bible says Adam did have a lot of kids after Cain and Abel."

The Bible says a lot of unverifiable, nonsensical things.

"In a perfect world, genetics of incest wouldn't have been a problem, especially if the copulation took place among people who were spread out so many years apart. Just saying... hypothetically speaking."

But, the Byebull say-ez, that Gawd booted Adam and Eve out of the Garden (without so much as an English Raft) BEFORE they had kids. So much for your "perfect world" theory. Besides, Genetics is that eeevul Science stuff. You really don't want to go there - especially since you don't know the first thing about it. Last, how does being spread out so many years help? I mean, without evil-lootion or some kind of chromosome damage... were they dropping acid or something in your perfect world?

FAIL or POE. You decide.

You fail at science.
I never heard about any serious scientist (i.e. not someone of these so called ID "research institutes") who would claim that even in a prfect environment a human could grow older than maybe 150

Lay off the hypotheticals, Briele. People are starting to giggle.

Totally vacuous.

No hypotheticals and no perfect worlds. That would make more sense if you stated " If I bang my head against a brick wall enough everything I just stated makes a lot of sense".

Science confirms that?

Well we're in a pretty good world now. You can get food anywhere, as much as you need, quality of living is excellent.

What exactly were these guys testing that they said 'I'll bet if we did this we'd live for 900 years'??

"Anyway, in 900 years, you could have an awful lot of kids."

Not all by the same female, IF YOU KNOW WHUT I MEAN.

"especially if the copulation took place among people who were spread out so many years apart"

1. I wasn't aware having children at a wide range of ages made them immune to inbreeding. Do genes age or something?

2. SPREAD OUT SO MANY YEARS APART

You do realize that if all of humanity could trace their origins back to one single man and woman our genetic code would show it?
Analyzing our DNA has stomped the Bible creation myth into oblivion for most intelligent people.
Of course, from all that I've read from Briele on this forum, intelligence isn't one of his faculties.

According to the Bible Adam lived a really long time. About 900 years or so.

Prove to me the Bible is reliable and this will be admissible.

Science does confirm that in a perfect world, we have that capability because we do regenerate and we regenerated faster when the earth was cleaner.

1. Science in no way confirms this.

2. The air and Earth were cleaner in, oh, 1457, let's say. People at that time, however, had a lifespan around half of what we do now. "Regenerated faster", eh?

How about that for scientific facts?

You have yet to state one.

Anyway, in 900 years, you could have an awful lot of kids.

Adam himself couldn't have had kids, being a man and all. Even if Eve had lived as long, you must first show she didn't go through menopause at age fifty, like every other average woman.

The Bible says Adam did have a lot of kids after Cain and Abel.

Again, demonstrate the Bible's authenticity.

In a perfect world, genetics of incest wouldn't have been a problem, especially if the copulation took place among people who were spread out so many years apart.

Perfect world or not, genetics are genetics, and incest would result in mutations and ill health. It also doesn't matter if a girl and her grandfather started having children; the sixty year age difference wouldn't affect the fact that their kids would be born with defects.

Just saying... hypothetically speaking.

Usually, hypothetical scenarios are plauisble.
