Dear Jim,

Again, when you say "not possible" that Terah lived to be 205 years, then you are applying "modern" definitions to what was possible and not possible. You are using eisegesis NOT exegesis. Furthermore, the plain meaning of "shannah" is year. The context also confirms that. The TEXT does NOT indicate that "shannah" should not be taken otherwise. Finally, remember that Yigal also showed from Exodus 12 that the 1st of Nisan was the beginning of the religious calendar that is to last "12 new moons" NOT "6 new moons." No society that I know of including the ancient American societies had a calendar that lasted only 6 months before a new year. In fact, they usually had a civil and religious calendar.
