Christfaganon here. I read the bible like any other book.. I rarely read books.

Methuselah, born in the year 687 after creation and died in 1656 after creation, 969 years of age.
He was Noah's grandfather. In case you were wondering, Noah was the guy who build a ship on a mountain and survived with two of each animals when God flooded the earth. Methuselah means "death shall bring judgement" and the funny thing is that he died seven days before the flood.

Believe in whatever the **** you want.

Seriously though, I was born in '94 as well, and I partially consider myself a '90s kid only because I remember some of the '90s (most of it from 1998-99 though). But really, who gives a ****? My childhood was filled with some pretty cool stuff, and even into today. As long as I had a good time, that's all that matters. plus in order to be a real '90s kid, you need to offer a blood sacrifice to the cast of All That

I've given you the resources. If you're gonna look into the subject or not, that's your business. I did my research on the guy some time ago and to me his story seems plausible enough.

Probably not.

The longest anyone has ever lived was 122 and that was a woman in France

By the way, he is Chinese and in China there are many murders, disease and other reasons.

He CLAIMED he was born in 1677 but most likely was not.

its just a myth with no official backing.


it was certified that he was atleast over 100 years old by the time he died but some other old men of the village he lived in claimed that he was already an old man during the time they were kids.so thats all the proof about his existance i have heared and those dont stack up to much

actually back in roman times there was a guy who lived to be 150. He ate the same thing every day for every meal and i believe was an ex militant. So he had a consistent diet and exercise and took care of himself.

Also it seems this guy is a legend: A chinese herbalist who SUPPOSEDLY lived to be 250 years old. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Li_Ching-Yuen

Really? He never claimed anything. He never boasted about his long life. He was an advisor and trainer in the Chinese army. His job was to teach solders martial arts and how to do certain breathing exercises in order to increase their endurance. And it's not like in Europe or any other part of the world there was no crime. Most of the articles about his longevity techniques and his lifespan were later published by one of his friend, a Chinese general named Yang Sen who is pretty famous even today.

Unless there were actual records of his writing and his name back in 1677-1933 I don't believe that bull ****.

Even if it wasn't birth certificates which didn't exist back then, he must have something that would prove him right.

Otherwise, he is lying and you can't say he was born in 1677

Imperial Chinese documents congratulating him on his 150th and 200th birthday. Disregarding his age, he worked for the Chinese army since 1748. Assuming he was hired at the time of his birth and not at 71 years old, he'd still be 185. The guy was a fairly important figure in the Tao ideology and a few masters that are still alive today met him. That's how I learned about his existence and started my own research on him.

I know my facts, I've given hints towards the documents, the personalities, the publications, everything.

Now for proving me wrong bring me some piece of evidence. Not the: "Those times were hard in China" kind of stuff. And definitely "I don't believe this ********" since we are all aware that there are people out there who STILL think that the sun orbits around the Earth despite facts. What one believes is irrelevant against hard proof.

I'm not on his side or anything and he might be as you say born in 94, but I believe he's trying to explain that a kid is at least 5 years old. This man was 3 when the 1890's were over. Still a toddler. Therefor, he wasn't an 1890's kid. He was a 1890's toddler.
