In the Bible, specifically in the book of Genesis, there is a reference to a decrease in lifespan after the Great Flood. According to the Bible, before the flood, people lived for several hundred years, but after the flood, their lifespans dramatically decreased.

While the Bible provides a religious explanation for this change, from a historical and scientific perspective, several theories have been proposed to explain the decrease in lifespan after the flood.

1. Genetic Bottleneck Theory:
One scientific theory suggests that the decrease in lifespan after the flood could be attributed to a genetic bottleneck. A genetic bottleneck occurs when a population is sharply reduced in size, leading to a limited gene pool.

After the flood, according to the Bible, only Noah and his family survived. This small population would have had limited genetic diversity, making them more susceptible to genetic mutations and diseases.

Over generations, these genetic factors could have led to a decrease in lifespan and overall vitality. Reduced genetic diversity can make a population more vulnerable to various environmental factors and diseases, potentially shortening lifespans.

2. Environmental Changes and Adaptation Theory:
Another theory proposes that significant environmental changes following the flood might have contributed to a decrease in lifespan. The flood, as described in the Bible, was a catastrophic event that would have caused massive geological and environmental transformations.

Climate changes, food sources, and living conditions could have put stress on the human population. As humans adapted to these new conditions, they might have faced challenges in finding suitable food and clean water, and they could have been exposed to new diseases.

I would like to propose a 3rd theory:

3. Lost advanced civilizations:

The humans before the flood were no primitive hunter-gatherers, as is the mainstream theory. They were very skilled and connected with the earth’s chakras and the cosmos. Their knowledge of the universe and life was profound. The remains of this ancient civilization can be found in recollections of the time of Atlantis and Lemuria, and some highly advanced constructions that survived the flood. Examples are the Pyramid of Giza, Stonehenge, and Göbekli Tepe. While the first 2 are wrongly dated about 3,000 BCE. Gobekli Tepe, discovered in 1963, has been carbon dated at 9,500 BCE. What is odd about Goblike Tepe is that it was buried or covered, like the people at that time wanted it to protect for something that was coming.
