    According to the Bible, God promises every human being 120 years of life. This extraordinary promise is recorded in Genesis 6:3, which reads as follows:

    “And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh, yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.”

    Most of us have been led to believe what is written in Psalm 90:10, i.e., “The days of our years are three-score and ten...” (70 years). But this verse is a prayer of Moses, whereas in Genesis 6:3, God is speaking...

    Therefore, Genesis 6:3 exceeds Psalms 90:10 in terms of reference. This means that when God’s laws of eating and right living are obeyed, a human lifespan of 120 years is guaranteed...

    Currently the Aboriginies(excuse the spelling) of Austraila live the closest to this lifespan....and they eat meat.

    Among others...Dr. Joel Wallach who has studied human lifespan and nutrition for 25 years.

    I also have an aboriginal friend who currently has a great great grandmother living at the age of 109.

    Secrets of Longevity From the World’s Longest-Living People Revealed

    Western researchers unravel the mysteries of the people of Okinawa

    By Ron Kennedy, M.D.

    Among the most interesting of recent findings from Western longevity researchers are those based on studies in Okinawa, a small island about 430 miles northeast of Taiwan and home of some of the world’s oldest and healthiest people. These findings are documented in "The Okinawa Program," a massive scientific report that details why life expectancy on that small island is so long.

    More centenarians live in Okinawa than any other place in the world: approximately 350% more than in the United States. The average life expectancy for Okinawan women is 86 years; for men, it is 78 years, a world record. It’s no accident: Researchers have found young-looking, clean arteries as well as healthy cholesterol, homocysteine, and blood pressure levels in these centenarians.

    How do they do it? Perhaps the most important factor is diet. Green, leafy vegetables and high-protein foods such as fish are two staples of the Okinawan diet. These essential food groups contain an impressive array of prolongevity nutrients. Here's the link:

    The people of Okinawa are the longest-living people on the planet...not the Aboriginies...

    They must...the proof is in the puddin'...the topic of my thread is, "God Promises 120 Years of Life in the Bible."

    Did I ever say it wasn't?

    Because they live long, does not mean they believe and/or practice the same faith that you feel is right....Do you even know if they believe in God?

    "Did I ever say it wasn't?"

    Uhhhh....yes. You said we should all be vegetarians because it is in accordance with God's law...did you not?

    "The people of Okinawa are the longest-living people on the planet...not the Aboriginies... "

    Even if this were true...which i'm not sure it is....it doesn't negate my point that the longest living people in the world eat meat! So how can you continue to hang on to this theory that we should be vegetarians if we want to live long and prosperous lives???

    Okay, I know I'm stepping in the middle of an interesting debate between Aqil and Dre', but I have a question and it does pertain to the topic of this thread, but more specifically about the issue of debate.

    In terms of lifespan...what is the average lifespan of a vegetarian, AND...

    "God Promises 120 Years of Human Life in The Bible"...does that promise apply to EVERYONE regardless of their belief/religion, regardless of their diet?
