  1. 1. BIBLICAL SECRETS OF LONG LIFE REVEALED Herbal tea kept Methuselah and Adam alive over 900 years by John Coffin Two cups of herbal tea a day kept Methuselah alive for almost a thousand years. The amazing brew was responsible for the incredibly long lives of Methuselah and other biblical patriarchs in Genesis, say a German archeologist. According to Professor Wolfgang Lempke, chairman of Biblical studies at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, legends say Adam and his offspring were given the life sustaining drink by God after He kicked Adam and Eve out of paradise. Right combination Although the exact recipe for the potion has been lost for almost 4000 years, Lempke and other experts believe it can be re-discovered with aid of computers and modern “gee-whiz” technology. ’The herbs mentioned are still available, “he says. “We just have to find the proper combination. ‘It is a very unusual mixture that includes some herbs like belladonna, which are deadly poisons, and narcotics such as marijuana and the poppy flower” Lempke claims he tracked down the patriarchs secret after 20 years of research in the Middle East and by poring over ancient Sumerian and Babylonian manuscripts. “The herbal tea was apparently well known to these ancient civilizations, although the recipe was already lost,” he says. “There were a number of references to the tea, called ‘Hai’ by Babylonians and ‘Chi’ by the Sumerians , and even some partial recipes. ”There are a number of references to Adam, Methuselah, Enoch and other patriarchs.” He says “hai” or “chi” meant “life” in the languages of those early civilizations. ”They seem to have been aware that the brew gave Adam and his offspring incredibly long lives,”Lempke says.  Adam Lived to be 930 years old, according to Genesis Recipe Lost According to Genesis, Adam lived to be 930 years, Seth 905 years, Cainan 910 years, Mahalaleel 895 years, Jared 962 years, Methuselah 969 years and noah 950 years. “Seth and the others after adam were all Adam’s children and grandchildren, “says Lempke. “Longevity started dropping drastically after Noah”. The researcher believes the recipe was either lost during the
  2. 2. flood or kept a secret by a select group. “The old texts say the patriarchs drank nothing except the herbal tea twice a day”, he says. “They had a cup in the morning and another at night.” Lempke and other experts who have studied the old writings believe God gave the recipe to Adam after he and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden.  Biblical Experts say herbal tea kept Methuselah and other alive hundreds of years. Computer Search The brew seem to be have contained all the essential vitamins, and the exact combination apparently slowed down metabolic degeneration, says Karl Shilling, an Austrian botanist. He and a botanical team hope to start a computer search using portions of recipes found with several of the Sumerian and Babylonian manuscripts. “It will be time-consuming quest because the combinations are almost endless,” Shilling says. “And then there will be tests, first with animals, then humans.” Even then, the scientist can’t really be certain if they’ve hit on the right combination until it’s been tested for many years. “We will make use of computer modeling and scenarios, but the proof will be if the lives of the test subject are considerably lengthened,” he adds.
