what's impossible about it?

before the flood, the average life span was >800 years.

after the flood, it decreased steadily from 400+ years to around 200, and then lowered from there.

abram's father had him at 70, and lived to be 205. Abraham himself only lived till around 100 or so.

check gen 11 and try to do your homework properly before starting these wild threads next time.


Pls stop regurgitating old mythology that are stated in ancient story books. . . .These stories have nothing to do with reality. . .

Hope you know that it is based on such acedemic "guesses"(By the way they are very intelligent guesses that have proven to be factual) that scientist were able to calculate the distance of the earth from the the moon and reach up to it. . Find cure to diseases and do many many incredible things . . .Myth has it that men used to live up to 800 years in pages of story books . . .After all super man also flies around in the pages of comic books as well. . .

THE LORD IS NOT A CHEAP MAGICIAN BRUV. SOONER OR LATER YOU WILL GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED. A COUPLE IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE MARRIED TO A LAND MASS. THATS 2 PEOPLE COUNTED. THREE LAND MASSES IS SIX PEOPLE. NOAH AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS A COUPLE. THATS 8 PEOPLE. ON THE THREE LANDMASSES ARE THOSE WHO REJECTED THE WORD. THEY ARE NOW HEATHENS. ON THREE LAND MASSES. HAM SHEM AND JAPETH. OUT OF THESE HAVE BEEN CULLED THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED. THE RIGHTEOUS WILL BE ABEL WHO WILL REINCARNATE INTO ISRAEL. AND THE WICKED WILL BE CAIN WHO WILL REINCARNATE INTO ESAU. AND THE THING IS TO SEE WHO ON THE THREE LANDMASSES WANTS TO BE WICKED LIKE ESAU OR RIGHTEOUS LIKE THE ELECT OFISRAEL. AND THAT MY FRIEND IS THE BLUEPRINT OF THIS WHOLE WORLD AND THE BIBLE.

YOU DO ERR. TURNING WATER INTO WINE IS SYMBOLIC SPEECH. WHAT IS WATER ? ITS MASSES OF PEOPLE. WHAT IS WINE ? WINE IS THE WORD. SO TURNING WATER TO WINE MEANS BE CONVERTED A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH THE WORD. HE TURNED THE MASSES TO GOD. YALL CONFUSE ALLEGORIES WITH LITERAL *SMDH*

^^^ Mr Obadiah, turning of water into wine is not an allegory, rather it is literal.
Maybe you should read it again
John 2:1-11
King James Version
(KJV)
1 And the third day there was a
marriage in Cana of Galilee; and
the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him,
They have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine
hour is not yet come.

5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith
unto you, do it.
6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the
manner of the purifying of the
Jews, containing two or three
firkins apiece.
7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they
filled them up to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor
of the feast. And they bare it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made
wine,
and knew not whence it was:
(but the servants which drew the
water knewwink the governor of the
feast called the bridegroom,
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth
good wine; and when men have
well drunk, then that which is
worse: but thou hast kept the
good wine until now.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and
manifested forth his glory; and his
disciples believed on him.
It most definitely is a literal story.

Now, pertaining to the issue of 8 people repopulating the earth: @Obadiah777, if you are to reject the idea of 8 people repopulating the earth, you must also reject the story of the flood.
Maybe we should read from the bible and see what God told Noah after the flood
Genesis 9:1-17
King James Version
(KJV)
9 And God blessed Noah and his
sons,
and said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish
the earth.

2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every
beast of the earth, and upon every
fowl of the air, upon all that
moveth upon the earth, and upon
all the fishes of the sea; into your
hand are they delivered.
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the
green herb have I given you all
things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye
not eat.
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every
beast will I require it, and at the
hand of man; at the hand of every
man's brother will I require the life
of man.
6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in
the image of God made he man.
7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in
the earth, and multiply therein.
God specifically told them to multiply. Is there anything impossible for God?

Now, on the issue of Adam being a group of people; if you are to believe that, then that would render the story of the fall of man useless. Adam most definitely is one man and not many people. It was stressed in Romans 5:12-21 that Adam is just one man.
King James Version
(KJV)
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death
by sin; and so death passed upon
all men, for that all have sinned:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when
there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over
them that had not sinned after
the similitude of Adam's
transgression
, who is the figure of
him that was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the
offence of one many be dead,
much more the grace of God, and
the gift by grace, which is by one
man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded
unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the
judgment was by one to
condemnation, but the free gift is
of many offences unto
justification.
17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more
they which receive abundance of
grace and of the gift of
righteousness shall reign in life by
one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men
to condemnation; even so by the
righteousness of one the free gift
came upon all men unto
justification of life.
19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made
sinners, so by the obedience of one
shall many be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But
where sin abounded, grace did much
more abound:
21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign
through righteousness unto eternal
life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
Adam is a person not a group of people.

No, they were specifically told to increase in number.

Genesis 9:1
King James Version
(KJV)
9 And God blessed Noah and his
sons, and said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish
the earth.

replenish means to fill something up again after it has depleted. In this case they were told to fill up the earth again with people.
