Indian Man Claims He’s 179 Years Old

oldman

Vârânasî| A retired cobbler from northern India, Mahashta Mûrasi, claims he was born in January 1835, making him not only the oldest man on earth, but the oldest to have ever lived, according to the Guiness World Records.

According to indian officials, the man was born at home in the city of Bangalore on January 6th 1835, and is recorded to have lived in Vârânasî since 1903. He worked as a cobbler in the city until 1957, when he retired at the already venerable age of 122.

“I have been alive so long, that my great grand-children have been dead for years” explains Mr Mûrasi. “Somehow death forgot about me… And now there’s hardly any hope left. Look at the statistics, nobody dies past 150, even less at 170. At that point, I guess I’m immortal or something. I might as well enjoy it!”

The man’s birth certificate and identity cards all seem to confirm his version, but unfortunately no medical examination can confirm his saying for now.  The last doctor Mister Mûrasi visited died in 1971, so there is little information available about his previous medical files.

  1. I can’t imagine living too 122 let alone retiring at 122.. 179 yrs.! WOW
    That’s gods work. It’s a blessed miracle

    • fact: being able to live longer is not a miracle. its a sign of good genes, a healthy lifestyle and mind. For Mahashta Mûrasi, he obviously ate all his veggies as a kid.

      Andre, we, “anti-god” atheists, care that people believe in religion because religion is the number one sole cause of the majority of hatred, fear, judgement, war, discrimination and murder our young civilization has seen and the sooner we can irradiate that barbaric, anti-scientific, narrow minded way of thinking the better off this world will be! Only when we start worshipping people and LIFE ITSELF, instead of some entity, will we truly be able to reach our full potential!

    • Hi Andre, I can see that common sense is not that common to you. Here are the reasons that concern me with religion; the suppression of woman, the suppression of homosexuals, fatwa’s, the Crusades, 911, most wars, suicide bombers, ethnic cleansing, the blowing up of girls schools, arranged marriages, honor rape, the rape of children within the Catholic Church, the last pope spreading lies about condoms in Africa, the blocking of Stem cell research………And no, I have no worries about being wrong. Your faith is not a virtue, your faith is gullibility.

      Mike it’s undeniable from the evidence that your little god is weak and powerless since he can only make one miracle in a population of seven billion people.

    • That is far from a blessing, are you kidding me, surviving all your loved ones???? That is the worst case of curse ever! No one should burry their children and less their grand children.

    • Regardless if there’s a god or not, HUMANS are the problem. Even if god existed, human nature would keep things miserable. Even if he didn’t, humans would still need some form of belief to go to once they’re afraid of death or illness. Some hope.

      You should all get over it. If you fight the opposite camp back, you’re as stupid as them.

      “atheist” or “christian” aren’t titles people should kill each other over.

      For the record, there was another person claiming even greater longevity-

      Li Ching-Yuen or Li Ching-Yun (simplified Chinese: 李清云; traditional Chinese: 李清雲; pinyin: Lǐ Qīngyún; died May 6, 1933) was a Chinese herbalist who supposedly lived to be over 256 years old. He claimed to be born in 1736, while disputed records suggest 1677. Both alleged lifespans of 197 and 256 years far exceed the longest confirmed lifespan of 122 years and 164 days of the French woman Jeanne Calment. His true date of birth was never determined. He was reported to be an herbalist, martial artist, and tactical advisor.

    • Did your God kill all those other people so that he could live? Where was the trade off? It’s not a blessing. He has had a long life, but did this happen because he was blessed? By your logic my cousin that died at the age 4 of a fever was not blessed. Well, that’s a pretty mean God.

    • Hersh on April 7, 2014 at 4:26 am said:

      True, the body regenerates every cell completely continuously when living. Carbon dating uses the idea that special carbon molecules decay in a specific pattern over time. You measure a sample, compare it to the pattern and bingo you have a age. However living people replace these special carbons naturally and negate the decay pattern :( There are no scientific tests for that elderly age range right now !

      Some foolish men declare that creator made the world. The doctrine that the world was created is ill advised and should be rejected.
      If God created the world, where was he before the creation? If you say he was transcendent then and needed no support, where is he now?
      How could God have made this world without any raw material? If you say that he made this first, and then the world, you are faced with an endless regression.
      If you declare that this raw material arose naturally you fall into another fallacy, For the whole universe might thus have been its own creator, and have arisen quite naturally.
      If God created the world by an act of his own will, without any raw material, then it is just his will and nothing else — and who will believe this silly nonsense?
      If he is ever perfect and complete, how could the will to create have arisen in him? If, on the other hand, he is not perfect, he could no more create the universe than a potter could.
      If he is form-less, action-less and all-embracing, how could he have created the world? Such a soul, devoid of all modality, would have no desire to create anything.
      If he is perfect, he does not strive for the three aims of man, so what advantage would he gain by creating the universe?
      If you say that he created to no purpose because it was his nature to do so, then God is pointless. If he created in some kind of sport, it was the sport of a foolish child, leading to trouble.
      If he created because of the karma of embodied beings [acquired in a previous creation] He is not the Almighty Lord, but subordinate to something else
      If out of love for living beings and need of them he made the world, why did he not make creation wholly blissful free from misfortune?
      If he were transcendent he would not create, for he would be free: Nor if involved in transmigration, for then he would not be almighty. Thus the doctrine that the world was created by God makes no sense at all,
      And God commits great sin in slaying the children whom he himself created. If you say that he slays only to destroy evil beings, why did he create such beings in the first place?
      Good men should combat the believer in divine creation, maddened by an evil doctrine

      Because a fossil doesn’t replace it’s carbon molecules anymore, so they just lie there aging, and then someone just measures the level of decay. A living being, on the other hand, replaces all of it’s molecules on a daily basis, so that measuring decay becames impossible…

    Gotta love when atheists come howling at believers but show 0 knowledge of either theology or philosophy, including the corollaries that derive from atheism.

    It is meaningless to talk about “good” and “evil” if Humanity does not have a teleological sense; materialism implies that abstract values are just “names” and therefore any action is not moral nor immoral but amoral.

    Get a job and go buy a book; also if you are so concerned about science buy “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” by Thomas Kuhn, where you might learn, might, that science is not made of accomulation of data alone, but also of the emergence of different explanatory paradigms which are historically emergent and depend on questionable first principles.

    Seriously, you are no better than Bible bashing evangelists.

Does it really matter if he is or not ? If he believes he is, accept it, why question it ? Why argue about it ? As for Religion, there is good and bad in all walks of life. Some may say Religion is the route to all Evil and some say, it is our pathway to Heaven, each to their own. The only time Religion is a problem, is when it is mis-used or abused to justify ” one’s ” own means !!

    This is for Mark, Hersch, Thomas and Phill.
    While this article is simply about a man who claims to have lived for 179 years, it seems this small group wants to viciously assault one another. There is obvious pain in some personal way, which is why I believe it gets so personal so quickly. I would venture to say that we all want the truth, So let’s look a few more facts – what about the actions of Stalin or Mao or Hitler, none of these guys worried about God watching them. Before you say Hitler was a catholic, check the facts again. His actions were driven through scientific interpretation and his Germany was a secular, scientific, technologically advanced society based upon gene superiority. What about the MILLIONS of people who lost their lives since the 20th century? Far more people were killed during these “non-religious” wars than in any other period. Check the stats, 40 million alone in Mao’s People Republic of China. So let’s get real, is it really about being more civilized? I’m really not trying to antagonize, I’m only trying to invoke a little more thought into all the facts, not just a few that prove one thought over another. Only looking at some of the facts causes deception, and no one wants to be deceived. No one wants to be labeled stupid or archaic, and we all want truth, freedom and abundant life. Can we just give each other the benefit of the doubt, that maybe we all have pieces of truth? It’s this kind of rhetoric that has caused us to hate and revile one another.

    Dear all brothers and sisters, in any way or in any case…it is quite a story of this old man right? For me at least tells how amazing life can be, what a lot of different kind of stories can been told. If he really is 179years old isn’t really important in the end. Important is the real truth. And that truth is within you and me. Within our hearts. And that is what we can call God, or Love, or Mother Nature. We have the free will to choose good or bad, and to have peace in our hearts. So, it is guided all to 1 point. Your heart. So, that is why is talked about 1 God (the father)The miracle is our possibility to be aware of our life and our breath….to be ware of ourselfs. The miracle is you. That is what Jesus Christ is all about. He said: “i am the light, the way and the truth” He talked about this awareness of our divine, our life (the Son). That is also what Bhuda is talking about; to be “aware”, so you can experience enlightment. Enlightment is to be in the present, in the now and not to be in the suffering of thinking. This is really important to understand, because Jesus and Bhuda tell the story of truth and to be in a state of clarity. So, the secret is to keep it within you and don’t point in any way to others. Because this awareness is true and is counting for every human being. There is no differences between us, no matter our color, country, religion, believes etc. We all experience emotions of pain, angry, happiness, it is just a matter of choose the right way. And that is awareness of the present. And with this awareness, we will handle out of love to eachothers. If you change inside, the people and the world around you will change to. A simple example; when you smile more in daily life, you will get more smiles back. When your are kind, you will have kindness back. When you act ugly you will get that. So people around you will be your mirror. If you start living with more awareness, than life can open in a positive way to you and amazing things can happen to you. Unlimited. That is what is called the holy spirit in the bible or the budha nature.

    In my case, i was not raised as a christian or budhist or any other religion. But one day, when i suffered a lot in my life, i desided to study all this religions to find the wisdom in it. I can recommand it. To understand this principles of wisdom can help to have a more happy and blessed life.

    1 Love

  40. To all of you! Fact: The Lord is real…your Lord! He (Jesus) is “The way, the Truth ad the Life”. I had the unique, compelling, and unforgettable experience of meeting a real angelic messenger in 2006 – who warned me against friends who spoke blasphamy and clearly stated they would be going to hell.
    It’s amazing, with all the compelling evidence, you bozo’s buy into your worldly intellect of unfounded theories. Repent! Everything you comment or say from this point after being warned
    will be replayed in your time of judgement!

      Quoting the bible doesn’t prove your god is real,and you never saw an angel. Even if you did meet and “angelic messenger,” there is no way you could convince anybody to believe you.

      There is no “compelling evidence” of a god. There are merely certain situations that cannot be explained at this point in history. You and billions of other people point your fingers to the sky and say “must be god!” every time something amazing happens or something cannot be explained. This is a pretty toxic way to view the world and can only slow meaningful progress.

  43. He probably believes in Krishna or another Indian god and has no idea who in the world Jesus is, so you should believe in his god because was his god who blessed him with 179 years of life, wait a second I believe that that isn’t a bless, probably is a punishment, imagine having 179 yeras old and you are not capable to wipe your own fucking ass, there are no gods! get over it you all people, the poor man has great genes and that’s it.

    • And how did he get those good genes? let me guess…. he evolved from an ape???, how about this, we super humans created ourselves, choose our relatives, our destiny and all that good stuff right?, its nice to know that you had the breath in your lungs to write this comment!, I know someone who is waiting for a lung transplant and hoping for a miracle!. Hey mr there is no God tell me why you will not live for just a mere 81 year and you have no damn control over it ???. Sometimes a father’s love for his children is manifested by letting them live free and even having them question him. Life and all the elements that support it like air light and food is a miracle. you sound like a man with all the answers or life at his finger tips. That’s A BLESSING FROM YOUR GOD MR!!

    • Sugarfairy2 on May 7, 2014 at 8:32 am said:

      Finally someone said something appreciative towards this long lived aged man… One needs to focus on the wonders and beauty of this world besides constantly labelling it… whether religious or athiest, you still maintain some sort of a belief and still criticize each other besides stepping back and appreciating what you see, experience and feel every moment of your life. Maybe something like “respect”, which seems to be a major lacking factor in our society today due to the wide spread freedom of speech which has only opened a doorway of showing how many shallow minds we have amongst us.

      How do you know they feel pain when dying? Maybe they will be given wonderful presents and be happy forever?

      There are two certain things (among others)about GOD:
      - Everything he does has good reasons. (Just you dont know them yet)
      - He is fair and never victimize its creatures.

It’s just as comforting to know that everyone who says things like that and uses kooky religious beliefs to try to oppress, judge and terrorize people will just decompose and disappear forever when they die.

    Religion is not a problem or a cause of the majority of hatred, fear, judgement, war, discrimination and murder. We – People are responsible for all the above! We have enslaved 12 million black people and killed more than half of them. Religion or not we will always find good excuse to justify our actions!
    So looking at all the nasty comments confirms what i just wrote! We are not open minded and it takes a lot to accept someone who is different than we are no matter what the difference is, can be point of view, beliefs and values, colour of the skin, nationality or sexual orientation.

  68. If people didn’t have religious dogma to fuel their propaganda then they’d find something else to further their causes.

    With that being said it is quite logical to say that God and the idea of God are in fact man-made concepts. These ideas exists solely within the cage of language.

Indian Man Claims He’s 179 Years Old

oldman 28 February, 2014

Vârânasî| A retired cobbler from northern India, Mahashta Mûrasi, claims he was born in January 1835, making him not only the oldest man on earth, but the oldest to have ever lived, according to the Guiness World Records.

According to indian officials, the man was born at home in the city of Bangalore on January 6th 1835, and is recorded to have lived in Vârânasî since 1903. He worked as a cobbler in the city until 1957, when he retired at the already venerable age of 122.

“I have been alive so long, that my great grand-children have been dead for years” explains Mr Mûrasi. “Somehow death forgot about me… And now there’s hardly any hope left. Look at the statistics, nobody dies past 150, even less at 170. At that point, I guess I’m immortal or something. I might as well enjoy it!”

The man’s birth certificate and identity cards all seem to confirm his version, but unfortunately no medical examination can confirm his saying for now.  The last doctor Mister Mûrasi visited died in 1971, so there is little information available about his previous medical files.
