People are living longer than at any point in history since the early Genesis records. And yet, one person is listed as having lived past 120 (if you really, really want to count 122 as *past* "120 years")
Mind explaining what else could you 'count it' as?

What is more interesting is that the one who lived this long (and I think birth records from this far back could be in dispute) was in fact not a "man," whom God said he would not contend with forever, but a "woman."
You claim there a different age limit for women... so, where in the bible is this stated? If it is not stated, under what context can you assert that when the bible passage says "Man" it does not mean both man and women?
