Hi Phillip,
You wrote:
"This is the part I am confused about. If his age was measured in moons, he, as Stormcrow (I think)said, then he would be about 88 years old
but What about the age of the universe according to the Bible? If I divide 6000 (the age of the universe [since creation] according to the Bible, if I remember right) by 11, I get ~545.5."

I hope you don't mind having your post criticized
1) When attributing, get your source right or don't attribute.
2) Aaron is no authority on how many lunar cycles are in one year. I mentioned 28 days as an approximate lunar cycle. As poor as my information is, there is no way to get 365 by multiplying 28 by 11.

Mark Twain paraphrased: "We can't do math, read well, or even look up facts in a reference book, but we're qualified to patronize others with our views on ultimate questions."
