Everything was perfect and he was created by God's hand and he has been close to be creator!
Think if everything was perfect what kind of sickness or virus had to be developed or how much the human body had to learn to the new fact that it's going to perish? Adam was the most perfect human ever and not wonder why he lived such a long time.
You can see in countries where it's not healthy or education the life expectancy it's lower! and in wealthy countries and well educated it's double!
So just think about the number or sickness, bacteria or virus had in that time? how men's body was perfect? the man just ate natural food in that time because men started to eat meat just after Noe after the big flood when the animal came out of the arch! and then you can see the perish in years after it.
You can see that he said in Genesis that he ate the fruit of knowledge of good and bad and God protected the tree of life so the man wouldn't eat and live forever.
We die to don't carry forever the curse of Adam! the knowledge of good and bad that makes us obligated to life good and evil stuff in this life. So we can come back to the original state of purity without knowledge of bad ! because if we know bad!! we will live evil too.... This is since the start when Adam choose to have it and then all his seed too.
God didn't want him to life forever eating the tree of life after eating the taste of knowledge and live forever knowing evil and committing evil... if it's not him his seed! his sons or family because since you know bad or good you can choose to live or be one or other! thank God that we don't live forever in this crazy world with amazing and good things but also with so much suffering!
Consider something about the aging process: as we get older, we get more cantankerous. Tell me, have you dealt with an obnoxious 85 year olf mother in law with an attitude problem?
Now, for the sake of succeeding generations, would you make them deal with people who reached 900 years and got more crotchety as they went?
Rocmike you have posted the last 9 straight hours ,4 hours under your 2 Bill aliases profiles and 5 straight hours under the Actual Paul Wittenberg. You have also posted under anonymous and another Paul Wittenberg. Why do you have 2 profiles for Bill and Paul? With all the aliases you have are you running out of names? This also doesn't count the hours upon hours you have put in the last 24-48-72 hours. You do nothing but repeat the same thing over and over. You need help and a life.
