Ancient History

One of my favorite things to study is ancient history. Very ancient history. So, in the book of Genesis, it states that people used to live 9oo+ years old. Which makes one wonder just what exactly they did all day.

They didn't have TV, phones, computers, paved roads, newspapers, or even books. If you wanted to take a road trip, you had to ride a horse or a camel. (Can you imagine what one's behind looked like after riding horses everyday for 500+ years? Probably resembled a beaver).

So what they do all the time. . .except farm and go to war. Build towers to pagan deities?

Noah built a boat when he was 500. That much we know. Just what were these guys eating? Whatever it was, they don't sell it at Safeway, and you can't get a prescription for it.

I don't imagine they ever got in a hurry for anything and were very good at history. After all, not much happened so far in the Earth's history.

In other news: I think I pulled a very important muscle in my back. The one that makes all movement possible. As a result, I have been stationary for the past three days.

I don't want to think about a 900 year old posterior!

Can you imagine having an infant at 100+ like Sarah did... Clearly a blessing and a curse!

Sorry about your back...
