@Sarah Regarding who had died when the flood hit land, I'm noting that most of the measurements were based on the assumption that Noah was 600 years old when the floodgates were opened. Actually per Gen 7:11 it was "in the 600th year of Noah's life"; then it took months for the water to hit the ground. I'll check it again.

@Sarah I don't know if this is the right chat room to discus the issue if not please let me know - I would like to discuss the Heb 6 question I posted. After you tell me if this is the correct chat room I will move forward. If you do not want to discuss it at all let me know and I will drop it.

@Sarah I noticed you removed your comments on my post. I would appreciate it if you respond to my response to your original comment.
What is the answer you think I am looking for?What I am looking for is an honestly exposited answer. Is there a problem with that? What is not honest about this question?

@Sarah I am not trying to be confrontational, I just don't understand why #1 -that question isn't "honest" and or valid? #2 Why I should delete the question. i think it is a text that people interpret differently because of its controversial nature, and I want to hear thoughtful people exposits the text. I want to learn something. But evidently you and possibly other moderators on site think differently. What is protocol, when a question isn't answered?
@Daи thanks you, we will chat here.
 
@JLB FYI all users here can moderate content, not just appointed mods.
but ultimately @JLB you moderate this site. Your rep points determine what privileges you have to do so.
the key is to learn the ropes of what the community expectations are then uphold and maintain them, and even change those expectations by discussing them on meta
 
@Sarah I added something to both hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/a/7918/2873 & hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/a/6231/2873. It explains why we can't simply say "The 5 words '2 years after the flood' are just a mistake. Thanks for suggesting that in order to strengthen the answers.
