Re: question unanswered ...
|Ancient people lived for geological ages, as the Bible plainly states, which is why they grew Neanderthal brows before they died in old age. |
This is absolute nonsense.
First, there is no evidence other than ancient tribal myth that people lived longer in the past.
Second, we have bones or fossils of modern humans going back 200,000 years and a variety of other species prior to that. There is no evidence of extreme age in any of them. Using forensics we can age skeletons pretty accurately through a variety of indicators, and what we see now seems to be pretty much what we observe from the past.
Also, the skeletal differences between Neanderthal and modern humans at the same time are well known, and age has nothing to do with them.
Finally, young Neanderthals exhibit the same characteristics (brow ridges, etc.) as old Neanderthals.
Your contention that people lived for geological ages is clearly untrue.
Tell me, what good does it do you are others like you to believe things that are clearly untrue, and can so easily be shown to be untrue?
Wouldn't it make more sense to accept evidence that can be verified? I would think that would make a better foundation than accepting easily disproved nonsense.

Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.
