And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Genesis 6:3

Since Noah was 500 when he begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

And Noah was 600 when the flood waters were upon the earth.

Since the number of days of man's life in the flesh upon earth is 120 years, since Noah was 600 years old then the flood of water is obviously a misinterpretation of the Scriptures.

How do Christians conclude that the 120 years in Genesis 6:3 referred was referring unto the flood?

Genesis 6:3 is the decision to change towards the human lifespan being 120 years. The verse you quoted says "his days SHALL BE 120 years".

If you look after the flood, lifespans decreased. Genesis 11 contains decreasing lifespans 400 years, 300 years,... end of chapter 11, Terah lived 205 years.

Abraham lived 175 years.

Last verse in Genesis - Joseph lived 110 years.

Moses was about as close to the Lord as any human being born of a woman. He lived 120 years.

No misinterpretation here - only human misunderstanding.

No human has EVER lived to be 200 years old. EVER! Our life spans are getting longer now. In prehistory 50 years old was ancient. Religious people can be really silly at times.

The principle established by Genesis 6:3 was that from the beginning of mankind on earth, the human being has the potential lifespan up to 120 years.

In the billions of people that have lived since the last 30-40 years, their have been a few claims that people were living past 120 years of age, but their claims lacked any substance. Currently their is only one person recorded to have lived past 120 [Link to Wiki-oldest person]

Just as they claim that person was over 120, Christians claim that just because it is written in a Book written by man that people lived over 120. I guess it goes to show who would hold on to the principle or would sway with the wind.

[16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: [17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.2 Tim 3:16-17

That is a totally false statement. Why would the Bible say what you said - while just in the prior chapter - it clearly states people lived around 900 years?

The scriptures also represent that Moses was [physically full of life, yet he died at 120 and did not give up the spirit. [ The spirit is the massless energy which science refers unto ionized gas, being the 4th element of mass which was just added to solid,liquid,gas within the 50 years.]

As far as the shall be, indicating a change in the principle. A principle goes back to the beginning and continues on perpetually, it can neither be alter or changed, or made up.

Does it say on earth? Moreover, any one represent that the person lived over 1,000?

So how old was Noah when God told him to build an ark in your opinion?
