Japanese man recognized as oldest male in recorded history

BNO News reports- "A Japanese man was Thursday recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest verified male in recorded history, surpassing a Danish-American man who set the previous record when he died in 1998. The new record-holder is also the world’s oldest living person. Jiroemon Kimura was born on April 19, 1897, when Emperor Meiji ruled Japan as the country rose from a feudal shogunate to become a world power. This made him 115 years and 253 days old on Thursday, one day older than Christian Mortensen when he died in California at the age of 115 years and 252 days in April 1998."

Interesting on what the world calls the official record keeper. Guinness? Give me a break.

Here is the record for oldest living man, ever, a record kept by God:

"When Methuselah had lived 187 years, he fathered Lamech. Methuselah lived after he fathered Lamech 782 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Methuselah were 969 years, and he died." (Genesis 5:25-27)

The Japanese guy is 115 years old? A baby! Methuselah hadn't even become a father yet. And I happen to know on good authority that the bible is an impeccable record of genealogies.

BAM! BOO-yah!
