"How do you think a person could live to be over 900 years old?"

It is really just a matter of genetics, just lengthen the ends of the DNA (forgive me I forget what they are called) and a person can live a really long time.

"The truth is, only a maximum of one is correct."

Exactly.

"We have to quote something. I am not sure of why certain sources are deemed as more trustworthy than others, but the scientists think they do. Who am I to argue with them?"

EGAD!!! Why do you fall in to the pit when you yourself warn other people about it?

Let me rephrase what you just said:

1. We have to quote something. I am not sure of why certain sources are deemed as more trustworthy than others, but the priests think they do. Who am I to argue with their intpretation of the Bible?

2. We have to quote something. I am not sure of why certain sources are deemed as more trustworthy than others, but the Holy Teachers think they do. Who am I to argue with their intpretation of the Quran?

3. We have to quote something. I am not sure of why certain sources are deemed as more trustworthy than others, but the media thinks they do. Who am I to argue with the them?

Why do you question others of blindly following when you do the same? The problem that I see with your statement is this: "Who am I to argue with the them." Imagine any person in history saying this. Would we not still be trapped in medevial times at best?

I do not wish to offend you by saying these things and if I have I apologize. However, I must makes this point: if you heard something like the Girl did, but the person used a refrence you trusted completly would you not do the same thing? After by saying "Who am I to argue with the them?" are you not following the scientists blindly?

I sincerely hope this was a typing mistake, as I make those to, and that you aren't being hypocritical.

Thank You for reading and I hope my words did not offend you in any way.
