Frequently Asked Scientific Questions and Answers
Dr. Aardsma’s Anti-Aging Vitamins dietary supplement contains two newly discovered, previously unknown, vitamins. The two vitamins are methylphosphonic acid (MePA) and methylphosphinic acid (MePiA). These two compounds are the sole active ingredients. Inactive ingredients are distilled water and a very tiny amount of ethyl alcohol. –Dr. Gerald Aardsma
The evidence strongly indicates that the answer is yes, the vitamins can make an individual physiologically younger. Much of the currently available evidence is based on a computer model of human aging before, during, and after Noah’s Flood. The model was constructed by Dr. Gerald Aardsma using the inputs of biblical lifespan data found in the book of Genesis (when was an individual born and how long did they live) and a correct understanding of the geophysical Flood mechanism. The results of the computer model indicated that during Noah’s Flood the environmental abundance of the vitamins was increased, and Noah’s lifespan was increased by an estimated 224 years as a result. This means that Noah grew physiologically younger during and for some time after the Flood due to receiving adequate amounts of the anti-aging vitamins. Anecdotal evidence from individuals taking the anti-aging vitamins supports the results of the computer model, with reports of a gradual return to a more youthful physiological function following supplementation with the vitamins. This is actually not a novel concept; people who have vitamin deficiency diseases are generally able to heal from those diseases when the proper amount of the needed vitamin is reintroduced into their diets. According to the data, healing of aging is a very slow process, taking approximately twelve years to turn the clock back one year on aging. Therefore, prevention of this disease is of utmost importance. –Dr. Matthew Aardsma
No, there are no vitamins that yield immortality. The anti-aging vitamins are just like any other vitamins in that they supply specific molecules that your body needs to stay healthy in specific ways over a long period of time. Traditionally accepted vitamin deficiency diseases, such as pellagra or scurvy, are marked by a gradual loss of physiological function over time that will eventually be fatal if the missing vitamin is not restored to the diet in time. What we know as the typical “aging” process is simply the body slowly breaking down in the absence of some needed vitamins. The physiological degeneration of “old age” can therefore be prevented by restoration of the anti-aging vitamins to the diet. If adopted globally this would eliminate “aging” as the leading cause of death, but does not guarantee that people will live forever as there are, of course, many aging-independent causes of death in the world. –Dr. Matthew Aardsma
Frequently Asked Health and Medical Questions and Answers
A number of vitamins are acids. For example, vitamin C is ascorbic acid. Concentrated acids can be harmful in some instances, but Dr. Aardsma’s Anti-Aging Vitamins dietary supplement contains only very dilute acids, not concentrated acids. The acids it contains are, like vitamin C, essential to your health, not harmful. –Dr. Gerald Aardsma (Read the Anti-Aging Vitamins fact sheet here.)
You should take vitamins MePiA and MePA daily for the rest of your life. Your body needs to be supplied with all of the vitamins continuously, on a daily basis. A balanced diet will supply all of the vitamins except these anti-aging vitamins. MePiA and MePA are no longer naturally available in any known food or drink. It is essential that you continue to supplement your diet with these two vitamins on a daily basis to provide your body with the MePiA and MePA it needs for normal maintenance, growth, and development . –Dr. Gerald Aardsma (Read the Anti-Aging Vitamins fact sheet here.)
Frequently Asked Biblical Questions and Answers
Contained within the description of the Curse found in Genesis 3:14-19, it is interesting to note that we do not find the dramatically decreased lifespans that we are so familiar with today. God promised that man would “surely die,” and he surely did, and has been ever since. God also specifically dealt with the serpent (including the first promise of a coming Conqueror over sin and death), the woman, who would have pain in child-bearing and whose husband would rule over her, and the man, who would have to toil in thorns and thistles and by the sweat of his face in working the ground God had now cursed. Mankind’s body would then return to the dust from which he had been made, after all the days of his toil was over. But, according to biblical data, even with the promises of pain and certain death as a result of man’s rebellion against God, lifespans remained steady at an average of 900 years from Creation until Noah’s Flood (a span of about 1500 years). After Noah’s Flood, over a period of approximately another 1000 years, lifespans dramatically dropped from 900 years to an average of 75 years, where they still remain today. This means that, according to the biblical record, mankind was living well beyond 150 years of age for nearly one-third of human history, and this was under the Curse of Genesis 3. Dr. Aardsma has shown that today’s reduced lifespans, due to the flood, have a physical explanation. More can be read in Dr. Aardsma’s book, which can be acquired here.
It should also be noted that throughout history, men have constantly thought of ways to overcome the effects of the Curse. Inventions of all types, such as cures for diseases, antibiotics, shovels, wheels, woven fabric, air conditioning, pain relievers, weed killers, automated technology, organ transplants, ambulances, etc., are seen as good, and as blessings from God upon mankind. What are these inventions doing? In a fundamental sense, they are bringing relief from the effects of the Curse. Curing the disease of what we call “old age” would certainly be in this same category, as it would preserve life and relieve suffering. –Steve Hall
This question could be asked about any affliction that occurs in this world, including other diseases, pain, war, and all suffering and loss. Is it right to try to change those things? As Christians, our purpose is to bring glory to God, and to bring the Life of Christ into this broken world. This of course starts with the gospel and sharing the good news of Christ’s atoning death and His resurrection to fallen sinners. However, it does not stop there. Alleviating pain and suffering is part of doing the work of Christ in the world. When “aging” begins to be seen as simply a debilitating disease that is curable, and that now something can be done about it, then as Christians we certainly have a moral obligation to alleviate suffering, and to let people know. The Christian church has been about the life-giving and life-saving business (both physical and spiritual) since the first century A.D. –Steve Hall
Passages like Psalm 90 speak about aging as a fact of life in the same way passages like Numbers 5:2 talk about leprosy as a fact of life. The Bible simply speaking of something as a present (in that day) fact of life doesn’t necessarily imply that it is God’s will for it to remain that way forever. For example, mankind suffered with many things spoken of in the Scriptures (such as leprosy) that God has graciously allowed mankind to “fix” over the years, especially through the spread of Christianity throughout the world.
One interesting note is that Psalm 90 itself can be seen as a lament. Moses lived at the very end of the time when lifespans were dramatically dropping, and therefore was a witness to it. In this Psalm he asks, “who knoweth the power of thine anger?” and he also asks, “how long?” It is interesting to view this passage with the perspective of lifespans. –Steve Hall
Eternal life is only found in Christ Jesus (John 14:6), and our bodies will only be glorified at the final resurrection (I Corinthians 15:20-28). The curing of a terrible disease is not eternal life. –Steve Hall
Although there are many differing views about biblical prophecy and the timing of God’s future workings in the world, most would agree that there is one clear prophecy of longer lifespans. Isaiah 65:20 states, “No more shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the young man shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.” The last part of verse 22 states, “for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.” –Steve Hall
