Do the math - "Methuselah" is older than many bible-thumping bugnuts think the planet is. It is also proof that there was no world-encompassing Great Flood.

I was taught that the oldest tree (species) on Earth is Ginkgo Biloba. Bless them all and may they be healthy and live long, in spite of man. Thanks Nelson.
