Another Proof the Kingdom of Heaven May Well Have Intended to be Earthly

Men who want to live longer would need a very painful remedy - castration:

Researchers have shown that eunuchs – castrated men living in Korea centuries ago – outlived other men by a significant margin. They say their findings suggest that male sex hormones are responsible for shortening the lives of men… [The study shows] that eunuchs lived 14 to 19 years longer than other men did. Amongst the 81 eunuchs they studied, three lived to the ripe old age of 100 or more, a feat of longevity that remains relatively rare even in developed countries today.
