"City of God" XV.10-12

Chapter 10-12:
Again the problem of the age of the antediluvian peoples is a sticky one. Discrepancies between the Septuagint and the Hebrew texts raise questions about the proper age of these individuals, especially Methuselah, who by one count may have actually survived the flood! The main point is that there were enough people around who lived long enough to actually do the things that Scripture attributed to them. We don't need to get tricky with our math to make up for otherwise improbable events and occurrences.
