Incredibly Long Lifespans

Genesis 5— “..these genealogies attribute to Abraham and to his 19 ancestors lives of unbelievable length, which reach 969 years for Methuselah…” (Bucaille)

Dr Bucaille, who criticizes the Torah in this way, claims to have learned Arabic in order to read the Qur’ān in the original language, yet he doesn’t seem to be aware that the Qur’ān also attributes such ages to early humans! In Sura Al-‘Ankabut 29:14:

“We sent Noah to his people, and he dwelt among them a thousand years less fifty …”

This is the same age for Noah recorded in the Torah, 950 years.
