1. Only in recent years
has science discovered that everything we see is composed
of invisible atoms. Here, Scripture tells us that the
"things which are seen were not made of things
which do appear."
2. Medical science has only
recently discovered that blood-clotting in a newborn
reaches its peak on the eighth day, then drops. The
Bible consistently says that a baby must be circumcised
on the eighth day.
3. At a time when it was
believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant
(1500 B.C.), the Bible spoke of the earth’s free
float in space: "He...hangs the earth upon nothing"
4. The prophet Isaiah also
tells us that the earth is round: "It is he that
sits upon the circle of the earth" (Isaiah 40:22).
This is not a reference to a flat disk, as some skeptic
maintain, but to a sphere. Secular man discovered this
2,400 years later. At a time when science believed that
the earth was flat, is was the Scriptures that inspired
Christopher Columbus to sail around the world (see Proverbs
5. God told Job in 1500
B.C.: "Can you send lightnings, that they may go,
and say to you, Here we are?" (Job 38:35). The
Bible here is making what appears to be a scientifically
ludicrous statement—that light can be sent, and
then manifest itself in speech. But did you know that
radio waves travel at the speed of light? This is why
you can have instantaneous wireless communication with
someone on the other side of the earth. Science didn’t
discover this until 1864 when "British scientist
James Clerk Maxwell suggested that electricity and light
waves were two forms of the same thing" (Modern
Century Illustrated Encyclopedia).
6. Job 38:19 asks, "Where
is the way where light dwells?" Modern man has
only recently discovered that light (electromagnetic
radiation) has a "way," traveling at 186,000
miles per second.
7. Science has discovered
that stars emit radio waves, which are received on earth
as a high pitch. God mentioned this in Job 38:7: "When
the morning stars sang together..."
8. "Most cosmologists
(scientists who study the structures and evolution of
the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation,
in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close
to the truth" (Time, Dec. 1976).
9. Solomon described a "cycle"
of air currents two thousand years before scientists
"discovered" them. "The wind goes toward
the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls
about continually, and the wind returns again according
to his circuits" (Ecclesiastes 1:6).
10. Science expresses the
universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power,
and motion. Genesis 1:1,2 revealed such truths to the
Hebrews in 1450 B.C.: "In the beginning [time]
God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth
[matter] . . . And the Spirit of God moved [motion]
upon the face of the waters." The first thing God
tells man is that He controls of all aspects of the
11. The great biological
truth concerning the importance of blood in our body’s
mechanism has been fully comprehended only in recent
years. Up until 120 years ago, sick people were "bled,"
and many died because of the practice. If you lose your
blood, you lose your life. Yet Leviticus 17:11, written
3,000 years ago, declared that blood is the source of
life: "For the life of the flesh is in the blood."
12. All things were made
by Him (see John 1:3), including dinosaurs. Why then
did the dinosaur disappear? The answer may be in Job
40:15–24. In this passage, God speaks about a
great creature called "behemoth." Some commentators
think this was a hippopotamus. However, the hippo’s
tail isn’t like a large tree, but a small twig.
Following are the characteristics of this huge animal:
It was the largest of all the creatures God made; was
plant-eating (herbivorous); had its strength in its
hips and a tail like a large tree. It had very strong
bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amounts
of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river. He
appears impervious to attack because his nose could
pierce through snares, but Scripture says, "He
that made him can make his sword to approach unto him."
In other words, God caused this, the largest of all
the creatures He had made, to become extinct.
13. Encyclopedia Britannica
documents that in 1845, a young doctor in Vienna named
Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was horrified at the terrible death
rate of women who gave birth in hospitals. As many as
30 percent died after giving birth. Semmelweis noted
that doctors would examine the bodies of patients who
died, then, without washing their hands, go straight
to the next ward and examine expectant mothers. This
was their normal practice, because the presence of microscopic
diseases was unknown. Semmelweis insisted that doctors
wash their hands before examinations, and the death
rate immediately dropped to 2 percent. Look at the specific
instructions God gave His people for when they encounter
disease: "And when he that has an issue is cleansed
of his issue; then he shall number to himself even days
for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his
flesh in running water, and shall be clean" (Leviticus
15:13). Until recent years, doctors washed their hands
in a bowl of water, leaving invisible germs on their
hands. However, the Bible says specifically to wash
hands under "running water."
14. Luke 17:34–36
says the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will occur while
some are asleep at night and others are working at daytime
activities in the field. This is a clear indication
of a revolving earth, with day and night at the same
15. "During the
devastating Black Death of the fourteenth century, patients
who were sick or dead were kept in the same rooms as
the rest of the family. People often wondered why the
disease was affecting so many people at one time. They
attributed these epidemics to ‘bad air’
or ‘evil spirits.’ However, careful attention
to the medical commands of God as revealed in Leviticus
would have saved untold millions of lives. Arturo Castiglione
wrote about the overwhelming importance of this biblical
medical law: ‘The laws against leprosyin Leviticus
13 may be regarded as the first model of sanitary legislation’
(A History of Medicine)." Grant R. Jeffery, The
Signature of God With all these truths revealed in Scripture,how
could a thinking person deny that the Bible is supernatural
in origin? There is no other book in any of the world’s
religions (Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita, Koran, Book of Mormon,
etc.) that contains scientific truth. In fact, they
contain statements that are clearly unscientific. Hank
Hanegraaff said, "Faith in Christ is not some blind
leap into a dark chasm, but a faith based on established
evidence." (11:3 continued)
