[asa] Ages of the Patriarchs

I'm wondering if anyone has any references / perspectives on the ages of the
antedeluvian patriarchs. I saw Carol Hill's 2003 PSCF article, which is
very interesting (http://www.asa3.org/aSA/PSCF/2003/PSCF12-03Hill.pdf). I
see also that Walton in the NIV Commentary favors taking these lifespans at
face value. I guess they could be some kind of miraculous thing, but the
sort of approach Carol takes seems reasonable. (My very bright daughter was
reading her Bible on her own -- praise God! -- and was asking about this,
and it kind of stumped me.)
