I'm Catholic and a CPA. I've have been studying Scripture for a while and like discussing different beliefs.

@fdb I agree with your last comment; there I was explaining simply by using birth forward. Starting from conception when life begins though, (and assuming it's 9 months before birth), when the child has had exactly 3 months go by since birth, today he's into his 2nd year, 1st month, 1st day of...life. We'd say he became 3 months old yesterday; today he's started into his 2nd year of life.

@Frank Luke Q: Would it make more sense to discuss this in the library? (Then I could delete even this comment). The reason I'm taking it to even the day is because the story does.

@Frank Luke If a child were born exactly 1 year ago (yesterday), today he's into his 2nd year, 1st month, 1st day after birth. Therefore, he’s had 1 year, 0 months, and 0 days go by.

comment Did original Scripture say Noah was a “son” of 600 years when the water landed?
Thank you. Here's what I still have as a problem; it has Gen 7:6 being the one verse that doesn't fit the others mathematically. When the floodgates were opened, early in his 600th year of life, only 599 years, 1 month, 16 days of his life had gone by. By the time all was dry again, only 600 years, 1 month, 26 days of his life had gone by. His being 600 years old when the water first landed doesn't fit there.
