Unfortunately, I think that in the end, there will be more seniors than there is money to support them. At some point, WE/THEY will be disposed of. My parents both lived to be 91 and both had health issues, in comarison, I am healther and am now 76. How long will I live, only God knows! I have already informed my children that should I be diagnosed with some life ending condition I will not seek treatment. I have had a good life, the love of my life is gone. I know where I'm going and I'm ready to go.

Your genetics determines how long you will live. Telomeres(DNA) divides until they can not any more and you die of natural causes. Medicine does prolong the quality of life if the genetic predisposition is that of long life.

Many live too long already. Often just a shell with nothing left.

Kathryn Cavanagh, The bible is just another book written and an interpretation by other humans. The bible was not written by Jesus nor any God. God only gave us the 10 commandments. That is all we really need.

yes genetics determines it to a large extent as well as the diet and lifestyle you have in your formative years. In fact the diet and lifestyle seems to prove that that is the way to go. I know of several older men who have vanquished the 80s quite easily whilst their parents never managed it beyond the late 50s - all down to lifestyle. It is a dilemma....I suspect the brain could last longer, if nurtured, but what good is a brain without a body?

The DNA is very important, but also the will to survive the difficult situations that one encounter in life. It is a combination of factors that keep one going, and to take good care of your health and mind is one of them. As a child I was very sick as I was as an adult. But I am still here, functioning better than anyone else at my age. A very interesting piece of information!

Genesis 6:3 suggests an upper limit of 120, although Aaron made it to 123.

It seems that there is something in Bible which implied humans would live no more than 120 years; this, of course, after the flood.

I think once all the people born in the 1930's and 40's pass on , there will be a shape decline in life span. Remember those born in the 30's and 40's lived through illnesses that killed many when they were young. People born after that are more prone to sickness.

If the quality of life is poor, quantity of life is not a boon.

I couldn’t care about setting some record. If God wants me today, that is fine... if I am 100 or more, that is His decision.
