Genesis 6:3

maybe it was just a generalization, not everyone lives 120 years


God did not say about or around. No false teachings please, Biblically you're worse off than I am if you do so.

Genesis 5:32 and Genesis 7:6

there goes the prediction argument


Assuming that Genesis 5-7 occurred in chronological order, without any deviation

Look at it this way. Genesis 5 covers 12:00 pm - 5:pm.
Genesis 6 starts at 4:30 pm and goes to 10:00 pm.

You've seen that in movies, haven't you? One scene leads up to X, and then another scene shows the same lead-up to X, but from a different perspective. You've momentarily jumped back in time to get caught up on another person's perspective.

That's what's happening here. Especially when Genesis 6 says "This is the history of Noah".

THEN he says the earth is bad, and made the 120 years statement.

After all of that, he says "Noah had three sons". Noah had three sons AFTER he was 500 years old, as 5:32 says.

So the order of events, as stated by Genesis 6 is:
1) 120 years proclamation
2)" This is the history of Noah"
3) "in time, Noah became father to three sons"


So yeah, nice attention to detail there, Wrassler X

Due. 31:2 he never abandons us. Of course then you can say that thats a different covenant, but then you gotta deal with john 1:1 and rom 2:15

Not to mention the Flood never happened as described... nor that even local floods have much effect on global population...

Indeed. And then, 120 years later, the flood happened.

Literary clues. Those obviously clear literary clues that unmistakably point out that Genesis 6:3 was before Noah had his sons, which had to have taken place before he was 500 years old, since Genesis 5:32 says "Noah was 500. AFTER THAT, he had sons"

fair enough, I concede. I see the evidence and follow it to its conclusion. I still would like some clarification on this though,please.

Duet. 31:2 is a recall of events from Numbers 20:12: "But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, 'Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.'" (after Moses brought water from the rocks with his staff)
