Early Science Fails, part 1


I have found some fascinating facts in the Bible that were written thousands, yes THOUSANDS, of years before the scientific community presented their opposite views and then more recently “saw the light” and have aligned themselves with the Bible.

Here are the first four:
In Leviticus, the third book of the Old Testament, it says “for the life of the flesh is in the blood”. Yet doctors began the practice of “bloodletting” as early as the fifth century B.C. and it continued up until the end of the nineteenth century. Finally the medical community determined that the practice was harmful.

Until recently scientists believed that air didn't weigh anything.
Now they say that a cubic foot of air weighs about 8/100’s of a pound. Perhaps whoever discovered that was motivated to look for an answer after he read in the book of Job that God made the weight for the winds.

It wasn't too terribly long ago that people thought the earth was flat. Maybe Columbus read Isaiah 40: 22 and learned that the earth was round as a circle.


And speaking of the earth, there was a time that people literally believed that the earth was perched on the back of an animal. Really? Some say it was a giant tortoise, others say elephant or serpent. What does the Bible say? In Job it is very clear that God has hung the earth on nothing; it floats free in space, as scientists now know.
