Scientific Evidences For Biblical Inspiration

       Despite the fact that the Bible was never meant to be a science textbook, it does furnish mankind in all things pertaining to faith and morals. Furthermore, unanimously accepted, fundamental laws of science lend great support to biblical accuracy. In other words, no scientific principle stands in contradiction to the teachings of Scripture. Thus we have evidence assuring us that the Bible as we possess it today is indeed the written Word of God. Following are a few examples of biblical teaching to demonstrate consistency with the realm of modern science:
            
            1.) The universe had a beginning (Genesis 1:1)
            2.) The earth is round, not flat (Job 26:10; Isaiah 40:22; Amos 9:6)
            3.) The water cycle (Job 26:8; 36:27-28; Ecclesiastes 1:6-7; Isaiah 55:10)
            4.) Ocean currents (Psalm 8:8)
            5.) The earth hangs on nothing (Job 26:7)
            6.) The stars are innumerable (Genesis 15:5; Jeremiah 33:22)
            7.) The existence of the universe (1 Corinthians 15:39-40)
            8.) Recognizes the nature of health, illness, and principles of sanitation (Leviticus 12-14)
            9.) Blood circulation (Leviticus 17:11)
