Putting aside all of the environmental factors of a pre-flood world (where lifetimes lasted a lot longer than they do today), I’m convinced the answer has more to do with senescence: a state of unnoticed aging, a quality existing in Adam and Eve’s DNA before the Genesis 6:3 decision of God. So why did God give Methuselah and a few others this quality to live for a lot many years—longer than anyone else in human history? What helped our progenitors live longer? Is it just senescence, or senescence enhanced by the food they ate? Was their DNA better than ours? Good luck convincing any scientist to take a look at the information contained in those two mentioned sources: the Bible and Enuma Elish. Even when they look at other things that are non-spiritual, scientists most often will discard any theory unless it was Western-tested and approved. What is still ironic and symptomatic of the conservative academic climate is that discoveries, theories, and evidence vigorously denied by the experts then can be accepted later, after it has been approved without a shadow of a doubt as a scientific truth. This was the same latter-day scientific truth which was regarded as a ridiculous proposition earlier. This, therefore, is a permanent reminder of the intellectual apathy that reigned at earlier times. Such apathy still pervades the scientific cult society today, especially when it comes to matters rooted in the Bible. There is research aimed at answering these and other questions. I was shocked at what I found, which has radically changed the way I choose and prepare my foods. I hope this book helps you too.
