A lot of specutaltion... however... lets assume... life was longer then...
begat means fathered... if a man 900 years... who can ignore... today a 100
year old man... fathering a child... It didn't say from his wife... or
even... his wife lived that long...

So... some 900 year old... man begat a son... with a 25 year old woman...
hummm... possible... of course... you may be compaing... incorrect
measurements...

supose a year... measured by lunar cycles... a 900 year old man... in todays
years would be 32 or so... something... remember... a man considered as...
a man at about 13... or 364 lunar cycles... his man years... could start at
this point... giving ... life expectancy... 45...

IIRC... much arcelogical evidence... indicates a 30 to 45 year life span...
