Abraham, who was 10 generations after noah, lived to be 175. Consider the ages at which these figures purportedly died: One of the most striking examples is the fact that the author of genesis claims many people lived for hundreds of years before they died.

Noah lived to be 950, but his son shem only lived to 600. Noah was the third longest lived person recorded in the bible (after methuselah and jared)! It does say he was more than 500 years old when his three sons were born, and that he was 600 years old when the flood came. It just seems plainly unbelievable and actually silly to think that someone could live that long.
