Did Noah live 950 years?

Yes, he did live 950 years among his people; his people lived long age span in the same manner: they lived hundreds of years, while people now live tens of years.

God – be glorified – said in the Quran 29: 14
وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَى قَوْمِهِ فَلَبِثَ فِيهِمْ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ إِلَّا خَمْسِينَ عَامًا فَأَخَذَهُمُ الطُّوفَانُ وَهُمْ ظَالِمُونَ

The explanation:
(We did send Noah to his people, and he tarried among them a thousand years, all but fifty; and the flood overtook them while they were wrong-doers.)

Noah → lived 950 years,
Abraham → lived 180 years,
Moses → lived 120 years,
Mohammed → lived 63 years.

This is because of at least two reasons:
1- The earth became colder by time, and therefore the day became gradually longer.

2- The sun became less hot than before, and therefore its spinning around itself became slower and therefore its attracting and dragging the planets to circle around it, became slower leading to the year becoming gradually longer than before.

Therefore, as if they live almost the same actual life span: because the day has become longer and the year has become longer.

This makes no sense. A day is the time elapsed for the Earth to complete one revolution on its axis. The temperature of the Earth has nothing to with it.

This makes no sense either. The attraction between the Sun and a planetary body depends on the mass of the two, not their rotation around their own axis and certainly not their temperature.

Default That is the funniest link I've seen for looong time....

Sorry to laugh, but DAMN - this is how the link "proves" the connection between temperature and gravity:
Quote:
To prove that which we have just said, we mention this experiment: 1- Take a pot, put some water in it and heat it till boiling, then pour the water into another pot containing cold water. Put your hand into it and you will find the hot water rising above the cold water; that is because the gravity [of the earth] influences the cold more than the hot object.
2- Boil the water until it starts to evaporate, and watch the vapor, how it will rise upwards. Then think about the rain, and how it falls down to the ground; we all know that the vapor and the rain are water particles floating in the air, so why does the first rise upwards and the latter fall down to the ground? The answer: That is because the first is hot and the latter is cold; because the gravity influences the cold more than the hot object.
3- Observe the flame of the fire, and how it goes upwards, as does the smoke go upwards; because it is hot, but when it becomes cold, it will start to stick to the walls, then it will fall as fine black particles.
4- We, all, know that mercury is a metal heavier than iron, but when you start heating it until it reaches to 357 C., it will be converted, after boiling, into vapor that also will ascend upwards, and when it gets cold, it will again come down to the ground.
Therefore, all these experiments and observations indicate that the gravity influences the cold object in particular.
It's disheartening. SO close, and then missing by a mile.

I have to agree that the OP doesn't make any sense. If the lifespan was supposedly about ten times as long as it is today then a day would have only lasted two or three hours.

I wonder what would happen if the earth spun that fast? Would we stay grounded, or would everything spin off into space?....I guess this is what you come up with when you know religion, but absolutely nothing about physics.

Long story short...Noah would have been lucky to live thirty years.

The life span of people decreased gradually.

About Noah: he lived 950 years among his people: his people also lived about the same life span.

Later on the life span of people decreased gradually, as we see it from the sequence of the life span of Noah, Abraham, Moses and Mohammed: 950, 180, 120 and 63 years.

So before the flood of Noah, people lived hundreds of years (as also seen in the Torah: Genesis). In the Quran, I gave the aya in the first post indicating the life span of Noah.

But after the flood, people lived tens of years and this also decreased gradually from the time of Abraham: 180 years, to the time of Mohammed: 63 years.

This is generally speaking: of course some people now or in the past centuries may live or lived 100 or more or less years.

The Earth currently rotates on its axis at roughly 24,000 miles per hour. Ten times that would mean it was spinning at 240,000 miles per hour. If you jumped straight up in the air, you'd land in a different neighborhood by the time you hit the ground.

It is a myth. People have never had a longer life span than they do today.

What makes the earth spin around itself?

True as you said; this is the definition of the day, but the duration of the day is increasing gradually, and it has been practically and scientifically proved recently.

Therefore the day, many thousand years ago, is not equal in duration to the day now; because the earth is gradually slowing down in its spinning around itself.

The energy that makes the earth rotates around its axis is derived from the heat that is in its core: the core of the earth is very hot, so that when the volcano erupts the very hot gases and lava come out of it.

But this central heat of the earth will not last for ever: because of heat radiation and eruption of volcanoes etc, so that the earth will lose its central heat by time, and so its spinning will be slower than before and then the day will be longer.

Nope, what actually happened is that Moses wrote the laws. That makes him the first Jewish lawyer. That 950 years was his billable hours.
