Why Are We Dying?

It has been said that at the moment a newborn child takes its first breath, the dying process begins. Why is that? With all the advances in medical science and so on, you'd think we'd be seeing a huge increase in lifespans, barring accidents, homicides, and so on. But it's not happening.

Secular scientists are trying to determine why our lives have a limited number of years. Evolution does not give them an explanation, but our Creator has provided it.

Scientists are working from their materialistic worldview to explain why we have limits on our lives, and to extend our lifespans, but they have not had much success. Evolution does not give an explanation. If they bothered to consult the Owner's Manual that our Creator gave to us, they would have their answers.
Recent science news suggests that our days are numbered. Our hearts begin to beat sooner than scientists had thought, Medical Xpress says, but quickly notes that humans get a normal limit of about 3 billion heartbeats – some more, some less. To find out about the onset of heartbeats, the British Heart Association studied mouse embryos. Extrapolating their measurements to human gestation, they think the human heart begins beating just 16 days after conception. “Previously, it was thought that the heart started to contract a stage later, when the heart appears as a linear tube,” the article says, so this is a dramatic finding. The heart is the first organ to form during pregnancy. It will beat for many years—but not forever.

But “When, and why, must we die?” PhysOrg wonders. The author of this article gives a common evolutionary explanation:
