The Bible Is a Scientific Wonder...
Many principles of modern science
were recorded in the Bible long before scientists discovered them. Some
Gen 15:5, stars are innumerable.
Gen 7:11,8:2, fountains and springs exist under the sea.
Lev 15:13, a flow of water becomes cleansing. This was not found until
the 19th century by Pasteur in his discovery of bacteria.
Lev 17:11, the critical importance of blood in the life process. It was
not found until the 1900s, by Joseph Lister (1827-1912), that the
immune system is in the blood. Prior to this, doctors bled people to rid
them of poisons.
Job 26:7, the earth hung upon nothing, the gravitational field.
Psa 8:9, water paths (ocean currents) exist in the sea.
Psa 102:25-27, the law of increasing entropy, life and death cycle.
Psa 104:6-8, under water mountains exist.
Psa 104:25, the vastness of the ocean.
Psa 104:25, creatures in the ocean are without number.
Prov 6:6-8, the ant harvests its food. This was not discovered until 1871
by a British naturalist.
Prov 17:22, a joyful mind makes age flourishing. It was not discovered
until recently that happy people live longer.
Eccl 1:6, the circulation of the atmosphere.
Eccl 1:7, the hydrologic cycle.
Isa 40:22, the earth is round and a globe. This was not 'proven' by man
until more than 2000 years after Isaiah wrote it, by Christopher
Columbus, as the most popular story goes. Eratosthenes with his famous
'well' experiment in the third century BC, did make a close calculation
of the circumference of the earth, indicating that it was round.
However, man for centuries afterward still believed it to be flat.
Isa 42:5,45:12, the expanding universe, GOD stretched out the heavens.
Isa 55:9, the infinite size of the universe.
Jer 33:22, the infinite number of stars.
Lk 17:30-34, night and day at the same time on the earth. People thought
the earth to be flat then. It was either all day, or all night for
all earthly dwellers.
2Pet 3:7, the law of the conservation of mass and energy.
1Tim 5:23, wine is good for what ails you. This is a scientific 'breakthrough' announced
by our scientists in February 1998.
