Instead of getting some people's dander up over another thread on creaton vs. evolution, or Bible vs. Science, I thought it might prove to be interesting on throwing out a topic that would only require some simple research or reading.
Okay, so here goes the first question.
How old was Methusaleh when Noah built the ark and what was Methusaleh's
relationship to Noah?

This should be moved over the BTS area.
Methuselah was Noah's grandfather. If I recall he was 969 at the time.
Still I believe that the story of Gilgamesh influenced the story of Noah's Ark and various other stories of the time.

Even the stories from tribes that had no idea Gilgamesh, not to mention the entire continent he lived on, existed?

/Q

Who knows? Maybe there was a big flood and the survivors written about what in their views happened. Maybe Gilgamesh was passed down and changed over time.

1. Romantic Rebel, I didn't choose which topic or area of discussion this
post got listed under.
2. You're right. Methuselah lived to be 969 years old.

3. Methuselah was Noah's grandfather. Score another one for you.

"Methuselah lived one hundred and eighty seven years, and begot
Lamech. After he begot Lamech, Methuselah lived seven hundred and
eighty two years, and had sons and daughters.
So all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred and sixty nine years,
and he died.
Lamech lived one hundred and eighty two years, and had a son.
And he called his name Noah, saying, "This one will comfort us concerning
our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord
has cursed". Genesis 5: 25-29

Nah, haven't 'studied' about Noah for a long, long time. Actually, really never did 'study' him. It was just some stuff that popped in my head as
I was reading one day.
I got curious about the math, so I got out a pencil and paper. It was
really intriguing to me, and made a whole lot of sense after adding up all
the numbers.
I'm trying to answer your questions without giving any clues. [Beating all around the bush, and the leaves are still on..].
No, I don't study about various religions.

A. The information given is: .."And Noah was five hundred years old:
and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth." Genesis 5:32
[wonder if they were triplets?]
"And God said unto Noah, ..Make thee an ark..." Genesis 6: 13-14

B. "And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters
was upon the earth." Genesis 7: 6

C. Noah's daddy: Lamech
Noah's granddaddy: Methuselah
Noah's great granddaddy: Enoch

Enoch begat sons and daughters: Methuselah begat sons and
daughters, and Lamech begat sons and daughters. Genesis 5:22, 26, 30.

Noah's father Lamech knew Adam...
...and Abraham as a young boy lived in the household of an aging Noah.

This is really cool. Thanks for the link.

One of the points I was trying to make was there were a lot of
people around to help build the ark.

Jared, Enoch's dad, was alive at the time that .."Enoch walked
with God: and he was not; for God took him". Genesis 5: 23&24.

Wonder what Jared thought of his son disappearing from the face of the earth...
..if he knew ahead of time that Enoch was going to be taken.

Jared [ Enoch's dad], was Methusaleh's grandfather. So after Enoch disappears
when Methuselah is only 300 years old, Jared is still around for another 435 years
to be grandfather to Methuselah.

Just think it is really interesting to see these people in their humanity, and the
relationships that existed.

Enoch was taken before the Flood.

Good point. I can see that the question should have been more specific.

The original intent was (start of ark building) to show there is a possibility
the ark took a hundred years to complete, that there were plenty of people
around to help Noah build the ark, and that Enoch was taken off the face
of the earth before the flood.
