The expression “old as Methuselah” is perhaps not as common now as it once was. Methuselah was famous for his unbelievably long life according to the Bible (969 years), hence the expression. But according to the Septuagint, he managed to survive the Flood without being on the ark!
Young earth creationists treat such absurd ages in the same way they treat the worldwide flood for which there isn’t evidence: as matters to be accepted on faith, supported by bogus pseudoscientific claims to lend them an air of credibility to deceive the gullible.
A couple of blogs had posts in the past day or so that highlighted just how at much young-earth creationists’ claims are at odds not only with everything we know about science and human lifespans but also history and other areas as well.
Likewise Randal Rauser blogged about young-earth creationism and really old living things. Among other things, he shared a video about living things which are much older than young-earth creationists say the earth is, including a tree that is so old, they call it Methuselah.
