15 Amazing Scientific Facts In The Bible

15 Amazing Scientific Facts in The Bible

  • The earth free-floats in space (Job 26:7), affected only by gravity. While other sources declared the earth sat on the back of an elephant or turtle, or was held up by Atlas, the Bible alone states what we now know to be true – “He hangs the earth on nothing.”
  • When dealing with disease, clothes and body should be washed under running water (Leviticus 15:13). For centuries people naively washed in standing water. Today we recognize the need to wash away germs with fresh water rather than standing water.
  • The earth is a sphere (Isaiah 40:22). At a time when many thought the earth was flat, the Bible told us that the earth is spherical in shape.
  • Origin of the major language groups explained (Genesis 11). After the rebellion at Babel, God scattered the people by confounding the one language into many languages. Evolution teaches that we all evolved from a common ancestor, yet offers no mechanism to explain the origin of the thousands of diverse languages in existence today.
  • The universe is expanding (Job 9:8Isaiah 42:5Jeremiah 51:15Zechariah 12:1). Repeatedly God declares that He stretches out the heavens. During the early 20th century, most scientists (including Einstein) believed the universe was static. Others believed it should have collapsed due to gravity. Then in 1929, astronomer Edwin Hubble showed that distant galaxies were receding from the earth, and the further away they were, the faster they were moving. This discovery revolutionized the field of astronomy. Einstein admitted his mistake, and today most astronomers agree with what the Creator told us millennia ago – the universe is expanding!
  • The universe had a beginning (Genesis 1:1Hebrews 1:10-12). Starting with the studies of Albert Einstein in the early 1900s and continuing today, science has confirmed the biblical view that the universe had a beginning. When the Bible was written most people believed the universe was eternal. Science has proven them wrong, but the Bible correct.
  • Reproduction explained (Genesis 1:27-282:24Mark 10:6-8). While evolution has no mechanism to explain how male and female reproductive organs evolved at the same time, the Bible says that from the beginning God made them male and female in order to propagate the human race and animal kinds.
  • Light can be divided (Job 38:24). Sir Isaac Newton studied light and discovered that white light is made of seven colors, which can be “parted” and then recombined. Science confirmed this four centuries ago – God declared this four millennia ago!
  • Scripture assumes a revolving (spherical) earth (Luke 17:34-36). Jesus said that at His return some would be asleep at night while others would be working at day time activities in the field. This is a clear indication of a revolving earth, with day and night occurring simultaneously.
  • Our bodies are made from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:73:19). Scientists have discovered that the human body is comprised of some 28 base and trace elements – all of which are found in the earth.
  •  The Bible states that God created life according to kinds (Genesis 1:24). The fact that God distinguishes kinds, agrees with what scientists observe – namely that there are horizontal genetic boundaries beyond which life cannot vary. Life produces after its own kind. Dogs produce dogs, cats produce cats, roses produce roses. Never have we witnessed one kind changing into another kind as evolution supposes. There are truly natural limits to biological change.
  • Blood is the source of life and health (Leviticus 17:1114). Up until 120 years ago, sick people were “bled” and many died as a result (e.g. George Washington). Today we know that healthy blood is necessary to bring life-giving nutrients to every cell in the body. God declared that “the life of the flesh is in the blood” long before science understood its function.
  • Life begins at fertilization (Jeremiah 1:5). God declares that He knew us before we were born. The biblical penalty for murdering an unborn child was death (Exodus 21:22-23). Today, it is an irrefutable biological fact that the fertilized egg is truly an entire human being. Nothing will be added to the first cell except nutrition and oxygen.
  • Each star is unique (1 Corinthians 15:41). Centuries before the advent of the telescope, the Bible declared what only God and the angels knew – each star varies in size and intensity!
  • Ocean currents anticipated (Psalm 8:8). Three thousand years ago the Bible described the “paths of the seas.” In the 19th century Matthew Maury – the father of oceanography – after reading Psalm 8, researched and discovered ocean currents that follow specific paths through the seas! Utilizing Maury’s data, marine navigators have since reduced by many days the time required to traverse the seas.

  1. man no nothing claiming he know all,what ever man discover is made to be known by GOD, any statement that come from GOD should not be doubt but to be put in a school of thought or research because whatever GOD reveal to mankind ,he GOD is proving his kindness mercy and wonder for mankind to recognize his greatness and the ability of his might,,,only GOD know all

  2. You know, I don’t appreciate that you removed my original comment. If your “god” is omnipotent, then why does it need defending? And if he’s all loving, why is there so much strife in this planet, and why is there so much hate? (ironically coming from heavily religious people from so-called “peaceful” religions) If it was omnipotent like everyone says he is, couldn’t he just wipe out the hate with the press of a button?

    • Vinyl,if you dont believe in God what are you doing here.Why do atheists and non believers feel the need to always troll christian blogs?Also by the way neither are atheists any peaceful,loving or tolerant.At the recent Reason Rally ,Richard Dawkins encouraged the crowd to humilate and mock christians everywhere they go.Also atheists like Stalin,Mao etc have killed much more than any religion has.

      • Those atheists were insane, moot point. Did you know hitler was originally Jewish, then christian? He killed about 6 million more civilians than they did.
        I’m not trolling. I’m trying to get people to engage in the free thinking that this country was founded on. And as for Atheists not being peaceful, mocking falls under free speech. You don’t see us forcing people to birth infants with serious birth defects, or trying to keep homosexuals behind electrified fences. (Hey, guess who did that 70 years ago?)

    • I think, my dear friend (the friend by the way of thinking) you are asking serious questions.
      Though the Lord indeed needs no defendants, but He chose to send people to proclaim mercy for believers and to proclaim wrath on ungodly. Though the sent are not always wise in fulfilling their assignment.
      This question of suffering in the world troubled many people.
      Hate in the world is the result of disobedience to the Lord. But notice, the hate of believers is condemned by the Lord in the same measure as the hate of unbelievers. It’s condemned in the same manner as hypocrisy and all other sins – of believers and unbelievers.
      Truly the Lord is omnipotent. But also He is omnipatient, omniwise, omniloving. All His attributes lead Him to delay to give justice to His elect, who cry to Him day and night, though He will give them what they ask (Luk 18:6-8), and delay with much patience to pour His wrath on those who are prepared for destruction (Rom 9:20-23).
      If He chooses to push a button – who is left on the planet? None – if they are outside of Christ. It seems, Vinyl, that by that pushing of the button you will be wiped out also, won’t you? You have all the reasons to beg for the mercy of the
      Almighty, rather than for His righteousness – for by your words you reveal your hate to the Omnipotent. May be it is good for you that the time to push that button is not yet come – though that time is in the future, when existing world will be consumed by the fire? May be it’s good for you that the Lord is not only omnified in His power, but also omnified in His love and patience and His mercy?
      But truly the Lord reveals Himself to those who do not seek Him or ask of Him (Rom 10:20). He saves by grace, not by works (Rom 11:6). Otherwise nobody would have any hope – everybody would be wiped out – and that is by the rule of righteousness. The door of salvation for the unbelieving and ungodly is yet open.

    • Hey Vinyl,
      Absolutely good and fair questions. I’ve heard them many times before and have kept my ears open thru the years for answers I could accept. I’m sorry some “good Christians” downed you for asking.

      God is omnipotent.
      You can say that again. Think about it. My wife died of cancer. I would have done anything to hold onto her a minute longer. I wasn’t powerful enough! I don’t care how powerful you are in this world, either as a President, a General, a Gazillionaire, you can’t live one second longer than God decides. If we were powerful, why do so many people, high or lowly loose their jobs? Why do some people get cured of diseases that Doctors guarantee there ain’t no way you’re going to live much longer, cause it’s a known scientific fact that you gunna die!!! Look up the story of “Our Lady of Fatima”.

      Does God need defending? Not hardly!!!
      If someone thinks He does, well, kinda arrogant to think so. But to stand up for “righteousness”, that’s another story.

      Keep looking for answers to your questions! I look for the Truth, not for any one thing to be right or wrong.

    • remember strife from began the stage of cane and abel and i presume and i believe the pious was killed,making the surface 0f earth be filled with violence as been pre-destined by GOD OVER ADAM,BUT IN DUE COURSE THE DEVIL SHALL BE CHAINED DOWN AND PEACE SHAALL REIGN FOREVER

  3. I would add a couple more facts.
    One is found in Ps 102:26 “…they (the earth and the heavens) will all wear out like a garment…”
    This process of the universe wearing out is discovered not a long ago. This fact does not allow to think that the universe is eternal and that it came to this perfect state it’s loosing now by the way of evolution. This very fact does not allow resting to the most dedicated evolutionists (Isaac Azimov for example).
    Also if the Lord would not have revealed how the universe came into existence, the scientists would be utterly lost in their rivaling theories how it came to be. There is no a scientific way to find out how it came to be (except the method of extrapolation into before-historic times – which is scientific way but far from being correct in this very situation). As it is written in Rom 1:21-22 “…but they became futile in their thinking and their fool hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise they became fools…” in finding ways how to explain the existence of the universe without God Creator.

  4. Everyone have different interpretations , and I do not agreed on how you are putting or adding your own words…
