It is said that life expectancy has increased. That due to improved eating habits and better health care, we are living longer than ever before.
A child born in the naughties (2000) can expect to live to a hundred.
100 years ..that’s a very ripe old age.
The poor Victorians were lucky if they saw 60!
Is it possible that humans can live up to 100 years?
Believe it or not there was a time when being a centurion was considered young! A hundred years old person, phsh that was just a kid! 😀
That time was a reality. It was the time of the Prophets.
Adam the first man on earth lived for one thousand + years ! Some scholars argue he lived for two thousand years. Let that sink in for a minute. A man living for two thousand years!
Adam was a human being like you and I. Physically he would have been like us as in one head, two arms, a stomach, a pair of kidneys etc. Yet he lived for more than 1000 +years.
