Since Noah and sons were already in chapter 5, no.

er, no. try to pay attention here. chapter 5 is a genealogy. it's like a family tree, or a birth certificate. chapter 6 is the story.

why tell the story twice? why have shem born twice? were there two of him? you really have to work better at understanding the structure and the nature of the bible. it's not that hard.

False, that is pure opinion. The 120 years can't be tagged to the flood. The other warning covered that. You only assume, as I used to, that the 120 years also referred to the flood.

ok. let's look at the warning again:

quote:
And the LORD said: 'My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.'

"his days will be 120 years."

do you not understand this expression?

quote:
And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died.

"days" means someone's life. as in "his days are numbered." the expression comes from this. god is saying that mankind will only live for another 120 years.

then noah finds favor in god's eyes. then god warns him of the plan that already existed to destroy mankind. it's the same thing -- you have to be completely blinded and preoccupied with some other crazy scheme to not see that.

so now you agree that your red-herring of the 120-years verse has nothing to do with the topic of the tower of babel?

No. But it seems others think that.
