My friend's grand father is not alive.
He told me the following:
If he lived today, he would be 135 years old.

I think it should be 'If he had lived today, he would have been 135 years old'.

Am I correct? Your comments are welcome.

MH, note my 'in the given context', i.e., age.

In other words, try Googling the phrases 'if he lived' or 'if he had lived' joined with a statement of how old someone would be.

Also, note my earlier examples of the kind of contexts where one would find those two phrases in common use.
I thank everybody for taking time to reply.

I am free to express my opinion on search engines like Yahoo and Google.

The Internet is free. You don't have to be an expert at a subject to write on the Internet.

For example, I could write a webpage to teach English using my rotten English. Nobody can stops me of making a webpage to teach English.

You are free to talk about the statistics after making a search.

Those figures are included everything; so I am not very inclined to accept those figures.

You are so right, Rotter. We all have to be more careful. In our Internet researches, we have to go beyond the figures and look carefully at what is included. And in this case, for instance, one has to examine the contexts in which this phrase "if he lived today" is used, because those 1050 entries on Yahoo are not relevant to the particular question you asked.
