What else is in the Bible that Scientists didn't know?
The bible has the order of appearance of life, and about dinosaurs long before science found these, so is there anything else that’s in the bible before science
knew? The bible explains how huge dinosaurs could have existed. Dinosaurs could not live today in areas where their bones have been found, the climate is not warm enough to keep a huge cold blooded
animal alive. Genesis 1:6-7 says 6 And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 And God made the expanse and separated the
waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. When God created the earth, there was a canopy of water, like a very dense cloud cover above the sky.
This created a greenhouse effect that kept the whole earth warm. The earth was like one giant rainforest with a constant mist instead of rain. This explains how palm tree fossils have been found in
Alaska, and ferns in Antarctica. This also explains how dinosaurs were able to live, and some even fly due to greater atmospheric pressure, in the northern hemisphere. All of this came to an end with
the flood, it was this water canopy that God caused to crash down and flood the earth, changing it’s climate. This would be why God didn’t send any dinosaurs to the ark, He knew they wouldn’t be able
to survive in the new world. Another interesting note about dinosaurs; they weren’t carnivorous. The long sharp teeth of the so called “meat eaters” have very short roots, averaging a crown to root
ratio of 7 to 1. If they were to try to bite into and hold on to another dinosaur the teeth would rip out. They were perfect however for stripping leaves off of branches. Genesis 1:30 says And to
every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.
It was not until after the flood in Genesis 9:3 when God said Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything that God gave permission
to eat meat.
There are other things that are in the bible long before science figured them out. We have all heard how when Christopher Columbus set sail, many in science said the world was flat and Columbus was going to sail off the edge. Well these people didn’t read their bible. Isaiah chapter 40 verse 22 says this;
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in. The same words “circle of the earth” are in the King James version in Columbus’ day. Isaiah knew the earth was a circle, and this was written about 2,700 years ago! We know now that the earth hangs on nothing in space. In the book of Job we find this in chapter 26 verse 7; He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing. Four thousand years ago Job knew about the void of space and that the world hangs on nothing. The common belief of Job’s day was that the earth was held up by four elephants standing on a turtle. A couple thousand years later, people thought the world was being carried around on Atlas’ shoulder. They must have thought that the bible was crazy, how could the world just hang on nothing! Now we know it’s true. The sea has always been a mystery to man, it has only been in the last couple hundred years the shipping industry has mapped out the ocean currents, or paths in the sea. Even though king David had never traveled the seas, he knew about paths of the seas. 8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. (Psalms 8:8)
We see on the weather about the jet stream, in Ecclesiastes 1:6 it says this; The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north; around and around goes the wind, and on its circuits the wind returns. We’ve all seen the light spectrum, parting light is something that was discovered only a few hundred years ago. In Job 38:24 we read this, By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth? Again in the book of Job, we find it in the bible long before science figured it out.
God has told us a-lot of things in the bible, people just refuse to believe it, or take it seriously. God also knew this would happen. Paul gives this advice in his first letter to Timothy. O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,”( 1 Tim. 6:20) Knowledge can also be translated as science. Too many people want to rely on their own faulty knowledge, when God’s perfect knowledge is right in the bible. Too many people refuse to accept what’s in the bible. Don’t refuse the bible, check it out. It’s always right!
