Fudging the numbers

From the Seattle Times:

Declines in death rates from most major causes, including heart disease and cancer, pushed Americans' life expectancy to a record 77.6 years in 2003, up from 77.3 years in 2002.

Since Americans murdered by abortion were not included in the statistics, the results are not accurate.

The real reason I want to mention this story is the misconception perpetuated by the media that up until recent times people simply dropped dead at a certain age. Some have gone so far as to suggest that in earlier times, since the life expectancy was supposedly so low, no one prepared to care for parents over the age of 35. This is the kind of nonsense we get when pseudo-science like Evolution is pushed down the throats of government school kids rather that real education.

Life expectancy figures are an average. Not a solid predictable, uniform time when people died. Due to high infant birth mortalities previous to the past century the life expectancy rates were lower. But of those who survived past the age of five it seems that life expectancy was actually quite long even as far back as evidence can be gathered. The great philosopher Conan the Barbarian once said, “What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger” and there's a lot of truth in that.

Surviving in a society without modern medicine produced a much stronger metabolism and immune system. The necessity of daily hard labor kept people fit and trim. Even the adaptation that is a proven factor (not the mythical speciation that Evolutionists preach, but true adaptation within the kind) would mean that each generation was the offspring of only the healthiest from the previous generation.

I have yet to see anyone bother to produce statistics on the life expectancy of the various ages, based solely on those who survived past the age of 5. Just as modern statisticians refuse to includes the data about people who have been murdered by abortion.

Figures don't lie, but liars can figure.
