Hold it right there!!! Am not talking about the god of darkness nor the religion of evolution BUT about the Creator of Heaven and Earth who is above the laws of nature. Some may think the Bible is blind in regard of the true science, hey not evolution but science, look at the world around you, who created it? Can you explain the course of evil by evolution? My friend, the reality of the matter is; we are not evolving but devolving...Face the truth, lets explore some science in the Bible Oh dear atheist and fellow christian and all.
What holds the earth?
According to a certain article, we are told that about three thousand years ago the Hindu Scriptures recorded the earth was resting on the backs of several huge elephants. And these elephants were resting on the backs of a large turtle that was swimming in a sea. We further told that Greek mythology claims that the god Atlas was holding the earth on his shoulders. Can this be facts? Are these stories for real?? well Our Holy Book, the Word of God says in Job 26:7 - "[God] hangeth the earth upon nothing." WHAT??? This is scientifically correct. How did the writer know this? It is written;"For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."- 2Peter 1: 21. The Bible is the inspired word of God.
The Flat Against The Round Earth
Hold it there BOSS, have you ever heard some individuals talking about the ancient people saying that they used to say the earth was flat relating to it with Christianity? The Bible say the opposite, people need to get the facts right and let the Bible speak for itself. The prophet Isaiah in chapter 40 verse 22 spoke of the "circle of the earth." and King Solomon in Proverbs 8: 27 wrote,"He [God] set a compass [circle] upon the face of the deep." Powerful stuff, even the Bible is accurate? Absolutely. So the scripture never support the flat earth scenario, never attach the beliefs of other people with the word of God.
The Stars, the Ocean and The Sea Paths
Where did the stars, the moons, the sun originate from? From nothing??? You don't have to get a headache, for God left his signature in nature, sit down and take a Bible. Genesis, the first book of scripture reveal to us that God "made two great lights; the greater light [Sun] to rule the day, and the lesser light [Moon] to rule the night" where, "in the firmament of the heaven [Space] to give light upon the earth" and "He [God] made the stars also"- Genesis 1: 16,17. In addition, the Bible speak of the valleys and mountains of the sea, for in Psalms 18:15 David wrote of God being the creator of "the valleys of the sea". And God asked Job( Job 38:16), "Have you walked in the recesses[valleys] of the sea?." And we told in the 1900s oceanographers found the sea had many deep valleys or canyons. The deepest canyons being called trenches. Go read about the first book of Matthew Maury called "The Pathfinder of the seas." WOW!
The Whether and The Water Circle
What??? You must be kidding Tlhologelo;NO! NO! Just hang in there skeptic, just wait. The Bible talk about rain, lightning and storms. Scripture tell us that in deed the earth's whether followed rules and cycles. notice Genesis 8:22 says,"While the earth remaineth, seed times and harvest, and cold and heat, and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
And in Job it says,"God made decrees [rules] for rain. And He set a way for the lightning of the thunder."- Job 28: 26. Isn't this amazing? Now science prove that the Bible in on the spot!
Isn't science teach us the basics that the sun evaporates water from the ocean and that the water vapor rises and becomes clouds when it reaches up at a certain level? and then the water in the clouds falls back to the land as it rains, then collected from streams and rivers back to the ocean? Yes. Does the Bible tell us? Yes. It says in Amos 9:6, " He [God] that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is His name." AMAZING!
The universe depend on God, God does not depend on the universe.
Pleiades, Orion and Arcturus
You were amazed right? Now you'll be blown off. Do you know what Pleiades, Orion and Arcturus are? Just Google but lets see what the Bible has to say first:
About Orion is written, "Canst thou...loose the bands of Orion?" "Seek Him that maketh the seven stars of Orion..." Job 38:31 and Amos 5:8.
Garrett P. Serviss, the noted astronomer, wrote about the bands of Orion in his book "Curiosities Of The Sky" saying,"At the present time this bands consists of an almost perfect straight line, a row of second-magnitude stars about equally spaced and of the most striking beauty."
(b) The Pleiades
Job 38:31 says "Cast thou bind the sweet influence of Pleiades?" A quote taken from Lick Observatory came this statement of Dr. Robert J. Trumpler: "Over 25,000 individuals measures of the Pleiades stars are now available, and their study led to the important discovery that the whole cluster is moving in a southeasterly direction. The Pleiades stars may thus be compared to a swarm of birds, flying together to a distant goal. This leaves no doubt that the Pleiades are not a temporary or accidental agglomeration of stars, but a system which the stars are bound together by a close kinship."
Once again in Job it tells us this;"Cast thou guide Arcturus with his sons?" Job 38:32
Garrett P. Serviss wrote: "Arcturus one of the greatest suns in the universe, is a runaway whose speed of flight is 257 miles per second. Arcturus, we have every reason to believe, possesses thousand of times the mass of our sun. Think of it! Our sun is traveling only 12 miles a second, but Arcturus is traveling 257 miles a second. Think then of the prodigious momentum this motion implies."
And when science discover, the Bible has spoken of them long time ago. WOW AND WOW AND WOW AGAIN! Oh believe in God you Atheist, God loves you all.
