In yesterday's post, I attempted to describe the Author of the Bible, and His motivation for everything He does or allows to happen: love. I admit that for me to quote the Bible in an attempt to prove its authenticity, I am guilty of circular reasoning. Christians are the first to point out that evolutionists are guilty of such ignorance when they date a geological strata by the fossils found within them, and date the fossils by the date of which the strata was supposedly formed. Circular reasoning may be the most ridiculous defense of any belief, theological, scientific, and especially political. So, in my attempt to prove the unprovable, I will try to demonstrate the validity of the Bible by showing its scientific accuracy concerning things not discovered until hundreds of years after God's Word was written. Here are twenty:
The Second Law of Thermodynamics (Ps. 102:25-26; Isa. 51:6).
The stars are too numerous to be numbered (Jer. 33:22).
The stars produce sound (Job 38:7).
The stars have their own path (Jud. 5:20).
The constellations Pleiades and Orion differ in nature (Job 38:31).
The Sun travels in an orbit (Ps. 19:4-6).
The Earth has a water cycle (Ps. 135:7; Eccl. 1:7).
The Earth is round (Prov. 8:27; Isa. 40:22).
The Earth is suspended in space (Job 26:7).
The Earth rotates on its own axis (Job. 38:13-14).
The Earth's atmosphere has weight (Job 28:25).
Winds follow a path (Eccl. 1:6).
Lightning follows a path (Job 38:25).
The seas follow a path (Ps. 8:8).
Life comes only from life; the Law of Biogenesis (Gen. 1:11, 12, 21, 24).
Man's life is in the blood (Lev. 17:11).
The material in man's body is the same as is found in dirt (Ps. 103:14).
The advantage of circumcision on eighth day (Lev. 12:3).
Using a quarantine to prevent the spread of disease (Lev. 13:45-46).
The ideal ratio for a seaworthy barge is 30x5x3 (Gen. 6:15).
Other scientific evidence for the Bible's teaching of Creation is found in a mathematical design for the location of the planets in our solar system. If there is a design, there must be a Designer. I have written about Bode's Law before (Jan. 17, 2010), but I believe his discovery is important enough to repeat. So again, Lord willing, tomorrow I will finish presenting the scientific evidence for the authenticity of the Bible, and begin presenting the historical evidence that it must be revealed truth from God.
