    check Amazon.com for a book on difficult Bible passages, there are several books covering the issues. I'm sure most of the ones you mention have logical answers.

    Just curious, are these questions from someone disputing the inerrancy of the bible?

    This one starts with a false statement. God did not decide that the lifespan of humans would be limited to 120 years in Genesis 6:3.

    God was giving evil humanity 120 years before he sent the Great Flood.

    Look at the context of Genesis 6.

    It's not the individual age of individual people that was the problem. It was that humanity has become tainted and so evil that it was only going to become progressively worse unless God stopped it.

    He gave them a time limit before He wiped them out. After the Great Flood, the climate changed and the atmospheric conditions that controlled the sun's radiation changes and people began to rapidly have lower life expectancies.

    Can you give a link to the site(s) that have this list of "conflicts"? There may already be a detailed rebuttal elsewhere. Thus, saving time and effort for all concerned.
