Bible Science 101


"He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth....He stretches out the heavens like a canopy" (Isa.40:22).

There are so many skeptics out there that would have us believe that the Bible is a fable. Some of their proof lies in its holding up in the face of scientific evidences. Let me be the first to tell you that the earth is not 6,000 years old and nothing in it says that it is. Let me also reveal that dinosaurs did exist! Nothing in the Bible says that they did not. The Book of Isaiah was written about 2,700 years ago. In Columbus' day, many in the science community did not adhere to the concept that the earth was actually round. The writer of the Book of Isaiah knew! The writer of the Book of Job (2,000 BC) knew this: "He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing" (26:7). The earth being suspended in space is very good science, especially in 2,000 BC. The writer of Job more than likely had never ventured out into the sea, but he knew this: "Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep?" (38:16). I doubt that scientific knowledge of the day was privy to these springs. In the eighth Psalm, King David was given this interesting scientific information about the oceans. "the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas" (8:8). Again, I doubt that the scientists of the day knew about ocean currents, but David did....With all of man's wisdom, and all of his resources, he did not know of these things when the men of God did. Scientific fact is shown many years before it gained acceptance in the science community. The Bible writers knew these things because they were inspired by God...Good Bible stuff....Good science stuff...God spoke.....

Have a great day....Think Big....Act local... Love mark Phil.4:11
