How did they live so long? Part 1


Regarding the long lifespans recorded for the line of biblical males from Adam down to Abraham:

"I say that none lived that long in those days, other than the one mentioned. Others lived natural, customary lifespans, and that person was unusual, with many possible explanations regarding his food and actions, or via miracle…"

(Rambam, Moreh haNevuchim 2:47)
