How many years did Adam live?
Adam lived for 930 years making him the third longest living person after Methuselah and Noah.
Archbishop Ussher did a number of calculations and came upon a calculation that Adam was created on October 23, 4004 BC and he lived till 3074 BC. However, the Bible does not give any record of date or time of Adams creation.
How tall was Adam?
The Quran states that Adam was 60 cubits tall. Which is 27.43 meters and that would be 90 feet tall. Since Adam was the first human and also made by God’s own hands, he should have been a perfect human being with a perfect gene.
In rabbinic writings and scrolls found in the Dead Sea caves, its written that Adam was diminished in stature when he was exiled from the garden of Eden.
We should also remember that there are huge scientific evidences being found every year of gigantic creatures, which roamed the earth. Dinosaurs like the Amphicoelias fragillimus was 190 feet in length and was 122.4 tons in weight. The earth was filled with giant creatures. So, Adam could have certainly been very tall.
However, the Bible does not have any account of how tall Adam was.
Where is Adam buried?
Adam is buried at the Cave of the Patriarchs (Cave of Machpelah) which is in the West Bank in the center of Judea.
