Each episode will take you through a different scientific field and compare the scientific record against the biblical record on different science phenomena and principles.


Many have said that Science has disproved the Bible. Well…it is true that Science and the Bible have disagreed on what is truth, but often, it just takes Science centuries to realize that the Bible was correct all along. Actually, there is not one provable scientific point that the Bible has wrong. In this lesson, we will examine some scientific topics where Science has disagreed with the Bible, only to see that the Bible was correct. We will do this by disciplines.

Astronomy

Science error: The stars are countable. There are only 1,026 stars in the universe.

I will multiply the descendants of my servant David and the Levites who serve me like the stars of heaven that cannot be counted and the sand on the seashore that cannot be measured.”

Jeremiah 33:22 (GWT)

Data: God’s Word tells us that the number of stars is immeasurable. Today, scientists estimate that there are over 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone! Scientists know that it is impossible to count the stars.  Just what God told Jeremiah over 2400 yrs. ago!

Final Conclusion:  The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Science error:  The universe is contained and has its limits.

Thus says the LORD: “If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be explored, then I will cast off all the offspring of Israel.

Jeremiah 31:37 (ESV)

Data: Jeremiah lived around 600 B.C., during the time when all ancient cultures believed that the heavens could be measured. Yet God’s Word states it cannot be measured.  It is measureless.

Final Conclusion:  The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Meteorology

Science error: The winds move at random in an unorganized pattern.

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.

Ecclesiastes 1:6 (ESV)

Data: God said to Solomon around 950 B.C. that the air moves on a course; that the movement of air was on a circuit or designed course. Today, science knows that the Bible was correct in this.

Final Conclusion: The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Science error: Air has no weight.

When he gave to the wind its weight
and apportioned the waters by measure…

Job 28:25 (ESV)

Data:  This verse states that the wind or air has weight.  In fact, the Hebrew word for “weight” is ‏מִשְׁקָל‎ “mishqal,” which means to literally weigh something on a balance. 

Final Conclusion:  The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Science error:  Rain and snow just appear and then disappear. It is a random act.

For he draws up the drops of water; they distill his mist in rain, which the skies pour down and drop on mankind abundantly.

Job 36:27-28 (ESV)

Other passages with information are:

Isaiah 55:10; Eccles. 1:7; Job 26:8; Psalm 135:7; Psalm 33:7; Amos 5:8

Data:  The Bible describes the hydrologic cycle more than any other science phenomenon in its pages. It is described scientifically to be a cycle where precipitation falls to the ground, and then evaporates into clouds and comes down again.  The water cycle.

Final Conclusion: The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Oceanography

Science error: The oceans are still without any major currents in there. If a current exists, it is localized and possibly temporary.

The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

Psalm 8:8 (ESV)

Data:  Ocean currents were not known to science until 1769 and only a few were thought to exist. They were extremely rare.In 1847, Matthew F. Maury, a U.S. naval officer and today called the Father of Modern Oceanography, discovered worldwide patterns of surfaces winds and currents. He discovered this from a Bible study he was doing in Psalm 8. Convinced that the Word of God is the source of truth, he goes to the Navy and requests a ship to prove the Bible is right in that there are many currents. He publishes the first books on ocean currents.

Final Conclusion: The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Science error:  The bottoms of the oceans are flat. [The Abyssal Plain]

The waters closed in over me to take my life; the deep surrounded me;
weeds were wrapped about my head at the roots of the mountains.

Jonah 2:5 (ESV)

Data: Capt. Maury reads the “roots of the mountains” and believes that science is wrong and that the ocean floors have mountain ranges. He again goes to the Navy and discovers that indeed the Bible is scientifically correct and that there are many mountain ranges in the oceans.

Final Conclusion: The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Human Biology and Medicine

Science error:  Blood makes you ill.  When sick, it is best to remove much of your blood as it is not necessary for life.

For the life of the flesh is in the blood…

Leviticus 17:11 (ESV)

Data: Until the early 1600’s people did not understand that blood flowed through the body in vessels and carried nutrients and wastes. In the 1600’s, William Harvey conducted his famous experiment showing that blood is the major component of life. Until that time, it was not understood that blood feeds our cells with nourishment and removes waste products. Doctors used to treat many illnesses by bloodletting or bleeding their patients. They thought that the blood was helping the disease. They would use leeches or cuts to drain off blood. During his final days, George Washington was suffering from a bacterial infection illness called bacterial epiglottitis. His doctors bled him many times in his last 12 hours, draining out 35% of his blood. 

Science now realizes that blood is indeed life… just as it is stated in the Bible.

Final Conclusion: The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!

Science error: Various races of human results from descending from various early human ancestors. 

Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female.

Matthew 19:4 (ESV)

See also: Genesis 3:20; Acts 17:26; I Cor. 15:45; Genesis 3:20. 

The Bible states that God just created two individuals who all people are descended from. Jesus and Paul both mentioned that all humans are of descendants of one man and one woman. In the later 1990’s the world was shocked by articles published in the respected Science publication stating that we are all descended from one female. Mitochondrial “Eve” would have lived close to around 6,500 yrs. ago.  [Science, 279, 5347, 28-29, 2 Jan. 1998; Nature Genetics, vol. 15, 363-368, 1997.]

Final Conclusion: The Bible was correct, and Science was wrong!
