The question asked needs clarification--by 'old' do we mean chronologically old or mental outlook/physical condition old??

When we initially die, are we not simultaneously reborn into the realm of the dead? A newborn is the epitome of youth.

Your poll is bogus.

Middle age is always 10 years older than your current age; therefore, you're no longer "young" (whatever that is) about 20 years after that.

For women old is 35, for men it's 50.

Well I reckon when I die, 'I' will just be.....whatever God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit has in store for me in His heavenly kingdom. Neither old nor young, but just right

Physical age is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things I do believe.
Hmm, I wonder at what physical age one should drink of the metaphorical fountain of youth, if it could ever be found??!! LOL would you reverse back to a younger age? Or forward? What would be the ideal physical age to be hanging in limbo, so to speak?

Chronologically - which often indicates physical condition, but not always.

However, some of the people posting pretend like they don't have a biological clock. I'm sorry, I don't care how young you think you are or how young you feel, or what "young" comments people may give you about your appearance: you still age. I'm detecting a lot of vanity, denial, and insecurity in the responses.

Yes people's bodies age, but if they feel good and confident in themselves, and have a 'youthful' outlook, how do you come up with that? I don't follow.
I am , ugh ouch, 50 now. The ole bones, etc. are not exactly jumping for joy, but I can still put a hurting on many a younger folk in a variety of ways! And no that is not vain, denial or insecurity, but fact

Although you did not directly say it, I get the impression thay you see these things as negatives. In my mind, denying physical deterioration, by affirming well being is a GOOD thing. It's just a matter of perspective, and no single perspective is any better or worse than another. It's up to each individual to see their world as they want it to be.
