The Antediluvian Theme



In accordance with this particular distinctive line of thought, the ancient people believed that in the very distant beyond the life span of the population was extremely long. The Holy bible describes that Adam lived for 930 years, Noah 950 and Methuselah 969.

This antediluvian theme can be found in nearly all civilizations, from the ancient Greeks and Romans to the Indian races. It is even in existence today to some degree. The explanation of this extreme longevity, in accordance with the beliefs of the period, was that people lived for such a long time simply because their gods granted them this privilege.
