Modern Technology Which the Bible Predicted Would Be Invented


I am constantly bombarded with angry remarks from non-Christians like this one, “Why do you bother to read and follow the Bible? It’s just a moldy book that belongs in the trash!” Well, to set the record straight that moldy book have predicted the invention of several advance technology, that we almost cannot live without today, thousands of years in advance. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the video above, which offers several examples of fulfilled prophecies, take a look at the two final videos which close this post and please keep on reading. I must warn you though, that once you glean over all the material in this article you will never look at the Bible in the same way again:


1) The Anticipation of Mass Media and Telecommunications
2) Allusion to Public Transport
3) Prophesied Arrival of The Internet and Social Media
4) Even Microchips Were Predicted!
5) Prediction of Weapons of Mass Destruction


 


1) The Anticipation of Mass Media and Telecommunications

Modern Woman with a Smartphone and Tablet

The Book of Job, one of the oldest books of the Bible, which was written almost 4000 years ago gave us this very interesting verse:

Job 38:35
Canst thou SEND lightnings, that they may go, and SAY unto thee, Here we are?

This ancient scripture seems to suggest that electricity can be used to actually send messages – please remember this was written about 4000 years ago. The very first electrical message was successfully sent by Sir Francis Ronalds’ primitive electrostatic telegraph, which was perfected by Pavel Schilling, who made the electromagnetic telegraph in 1832. Mankind only discovered this property of electricity less than 200 years ago, while the Bible has alluded to this several millennia ago. Please note that this is just the tip of the iceberg!

Revelation 11:9, 10
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall SEE their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that DWELL UPON THE EARTH shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall SEND GIFTS one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

The above prophecy from the Book of Revelation implies that somehow, the news that two servants of God who will die, will spread quickly to the entire world in the future! This is a rather bold claim penned by John, the disciple of Jesus Christ, who wrote this around the late 80’s or early 90’s A.D. Right now, news travel at the speed of light, but back in those days news traveled at the speed of horseback, yet this prophecy clearly hints that these two men will be seen by the entire world, LIVE, over the span of three and a half days! I am reminded of Osama bin Laden’s death. Remember that event? When most of the world celebrated, while some sympathetic to his cause mourned, as such, this is precisely the sort of event which will happen in Revelation 11:9, 10. If you know anything about me, I am a strong believer in the idea that history tends to repeat itself:

Ecclesiastes 1:9, 10
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

Americans celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden

So, that distasteful behavior, in my opinion, by some Americans when they learned of Osama bin Laden’s death gives us unique insight as to how the prophesied events of Revelation 11:9, 10 will unravel; it is like a snapshot for those events. This prophecy clearly alludes to the invention of television and mass media. In fact, Bible critics always laughed at those verses before, until the invention of television. So, is this just a coincidence? Well, that is quite a coincidence, that the Bible indirectly predicted that television, mass media and telecommunications would be invented. The fact that the people exchanged gifts in Revelation 11:10, is incredibly telling as well! Why is that gift-giving detail significant? It seems to me that the Bible anticipated, well ahead of time, that the world would later celebrate holidays worldwide, which involved exchanging gifts – like Christmas! Please keep in mind that the Book of Revelation was written all the way back in the 1st century A.D. These prophecies are just so amazing!

Matthew 24:15-18
When ye therefore shall SEE the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

How can people in Judea, or on their housetops and in the fields will see what is occurring in the Holy place also know as the Holy of Holies in Matthew chapter 24? Most people would easily overlook that scripture, but the Holy of Holies in the Temple was not some sort of public place like a stadium – it was a small chamber, which was visited by the high priest alone, once a year! Jesus is prophesying that when the Third Temple will be rebuilt, this event will occur and everyone will see this event unfold simultaneously! The only way people will “see the abomination of desolation” would be via global media coverage – it is the only explanation which makes sense.

Still not convinced that the Bible prophesied mass media? Take a look at this:

Malachi 1:11
For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same My name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in EVERY PLACE incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for My name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.

Matthew 24:14
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in ALL THE WORLD for a witness unto ALL NATIONS; and then shall the end come.

Malachi 1:11, is significant as it alludes to mass media – only mass media would make sense of such a bold claim – that God’s name would be great among the Gentiles (non-Jews). Christianity is the largest religion on the planet with almost a third of the Earth’s population professing faith in Jesus Christ and billions more having high regard for Jesus Christ as either a prophet or an enlightened Being. The above prophecy in Matthew 24:14, uttered by Jesus Himself, demands the invention of technology which would make it possible. I will admit that this prophecy is only partly fulfilled for now, as it is still in progress. If you are still not a Christian, this is good news for you, please heed Jesus words and get saved before the end comes, but I must warn you that China, one of the final frontiers of the Gospel, has the Gospel spreading like wildfire now – these prophecies are on the very brink of being fulfilled.

2) Allusion to Public Transport


Yes, the Bible seems to strongly suggest that in the Last Days there will be public transportation systems in place. Take a look at the following passage in the Book of Daniel, which was written 605 to 536 B.C.:

cars boats

Daniel 12:4
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall RUN TO AND FRO, and knowledge shall be increased.

On the surface, an individual would mistakenly say that this passage simply says that people would “run to and fro” over short distances, but the English language simply does not convey the full meaning properly – the Hebrew word used here for “run to and fro” according to Strong’s Concordance H7751 is “shuwt,” this word specifically is used to refer to transport covering massive distances, whenever it is used in the Bible (for examples see Job 1:7; 2 Chronicles 16:9; Amos 8:12; Zechariah 4:10). So yes, the Bible implies that mass travel will be available. This is further confirmed when you consider this next scripture which was penned by Isaiah around 740 to 680 B.C.:

Isaiah 60:4, 8
LIFT UP THINE EYES round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.
Who are these that FLY as a CLOUD, and as the DOVES to their windows?

Just to give a little background into this passage, Isaiah 60:4, 8 describes a vision which God showed the prophet Isaiah, so Isaiah is simply writing what he saw in the vision. Isaiah 60:4, 8 seems to allude to airplanes believe it or not. Isaiah 60:8, uses poetic language, however, it is conveying the literal action of flight. On one hand, that verse describes people as clouds, a very common symbol used by the Bible, which represents vast numbers of people moving quickly (for examples see Hebrews 12:1; Matthew 24:30; Jude 1:14). On the other hand, that same passage describes some coming “as doves to their windows,” people are also described as doves in the scriptures, but whenever used it refers to small quantities or a remnant of people (Matthew 10:16; Jeremiah 48:28). How can we be certain that these people are actually flying in planes? There are two major reasons for this interpretation – the Bible went out of its way to say that “these fly,” in Isaaiah 60:8, the word here is transliterated as “`uwph,” according to Strong’s Concordance H5774, it is a Hebrew word primarily used to describe flight through the sky. The second reason why this interpretation seems entirely valid is the use of the words “lift up thine eyes,” in Isaiah 60:4, the Hebrew word used there according to Strong’s Concordance H5375, is transliterated as “nasa'” which means “to rise” or “to lift up.” Quick question: If Isaiah was merely seeing people on land or travelling by sea, then why on Earth was God telling him to lift up his eyes? Simple common sense combined with all that I have shared seems to strongly support the idea that what the prophet Isaiah saw was quite possibly people flying inside aircrafts. Of course, there was no Hebrew word available at the time for airplanes, as those were only invented in 1903 by the Wright brothers, so the closest terms he had available to use were “doves” and “clouds.”

3) Prophesied Arrival of The Internet and Social Media


This point goes hand in hand with my first point, so if you haven’t read my first point, then I will strongly recommend that you do so before you read this one here. The Bible prophesied that there will be a massive knowledge explosion in the Last Days as the following passage suggests:

Daniel 12:4
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and KNOWLEDGE shall be INCREASED.

Knowledge has certainly risen by leaps and bounds with the invention of the internet, which makes multiple volumes of encyclopedias’ worth of knowledge accessible at one’s finger tips. The Bible has even prophesied social behaviors which is very prevalent in our time like widespread narcissism in the selfies movement, the pride, the sense of entitlement by children, all the mistrust, liars, obsession with materialism and many others:

adorable cat taking a selfie

2 Timothy 3:1-5
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce,
despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Second Timothy was written by the apostle Paul, all the way back in 63 A.D., and unless you have been living under a rock over the last decade, you cannot deny the blatant obsession with material possession as the passage says, “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.” Do you remember the images flooding the internet and social media, of a certain celebrity’s naked backside? My goodness, I could almost end this point with that recent fact alone, as it embodies almost all that Paul warned about above! The narcissism surrounding the selfies movement is clearly described, “men shall be lovers of their own selves.” These prophecies are so amazing, it is almost as if Paul had time traveled to our time, then time traveled back to his own time and wrote this stuff – his details are spot-on! However, I am sure that some who will read this point, may still think, “This is all just a coincidence recorded in an irrelevant and very moldy book!” Well my “moldy” book seems to have perfectly anticipated the rise of these evils like pride, pornography, materialism, etc. – read the following scriptures and you will see what I mean:

child watching tv

Psalms 101:3
I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

Psalms 119:36, 37
Incline my heart unto Thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in Thy way.

1 John 2:15-17
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

If the Bible is so irrelevant, then why is it that it seems to already be prepared to respond to these unhealthy social behaviors which are plaguing our society today? So, do not allow anyone to let you think that the Bible is irrelevant to this post-modern era or that the Bible needs to be twisted in order to compromise with today’s world – the Bible has anticipated all of these behaviors and have even offered simple inexpensive solutions on how to remedy them, as well as, overcoming the addictions associated with them.

4) Even Microchips Were Predicted!

The Bible seems to have foretold the rise of the RFID (Radio-frequency identification) chips. This technology can remotely transfer information via electromagnetic fields. Take a look at the following scripture:

RFID microchip next to a grain of rice

Revelation 13:16-18
And he (Antichrist) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

There are many who oppose this interpretation of this “mark” of the beast, and claim that it is merely some sort of tattoo on the skin or something else, however, an in-depth study of the original Greek language used here discredits this “tattoo” claim. Strong’s Concordance G5480 tells us that the word in the Greek used for “mark” is transliterated as “charagma” and while this Greek word bears the meaning of “a stamp, an imprinted mark,” it also can refer to a “thing carved, sculpture, or graven work.” Therefore this “mark” of the beast can be something which is carefully fabricated or manufactured and the word usage even implies a 3-dimensional aspect to this “mark,” hence the RFID microchip view is still entirely possible. However, when one takes the time to further investigate the root of the word “charagma,” you will make an amazing discovery! That word comes from the Greek word, “charax” which according to Strong’s Concordance G5482, means “a stake” or “a palisade” which is driven into the ground. These meanings are all incredibly significant, because the chip is embedded into the skin in the same manner as a stake is driven into the ground! With all that said, can you really doubt this interpretation?

What amazes me more about this prophecy is that there seems to be an invisible hand trying to desensitize the entire world into being eager to accept this prophesied mark of the beast, and most of the followers of the world religions are actually being encouraged to accept it when it finally arrives. In Hinduism, Hindus are encouraged to wear marks on their foreheads called “tilaka,” “kum-kum” or “bindi” and they accept this mark on their forehead to help awaken their third eye or align them spiritually for their religious services. Buddhist monks, called Bhikkhu, receive nine burns upon their foreheads created with lit incense, called Jieba scars, which are received at the point of their ordination as monks. Islam actually teaches its followers that just before the Last Day, a beast will rise up from the depths of the Earth, called Dabbat al-Arḍd, who will strike a mark onto the heads of all Muslims with a mark that says “He is destined for Paradise” (see Surah 27:82; Tafsir Ibn Kathir; Hadith like Sunan Ibn Majah). This beast of the Earth will be welcomed by Muslims, but will be shunned by informed Christians, because we were warned centuries before the rise of Islam that this beast from the Earth will be the false prophet of the Antichrist (see Revelation 13:11-14). Those who join the Bahá’í Faith are also desensitized to accept this kind of technology, because new members are actually required to attend an interview to join that religion and are even given an identification card after joining. Even Atheists, Secular Humanists, and Agnostics are being prepared and enticed to receive this prophesied mark of the beast. An RFID microchip, which might quite possibly be a prototype for this prophesied mark of the beast, has been accepted by an entire office which had all of its staff members chipped – just a few days ago. You can read this article here here by the BBC, “Office puts chips under staff’s skin” which exposes this story.

 


Research in the medical field is currently being done to use RFID chips and nanotechnology to release medicine or even treat diseases as the CBS news video above shows. Some Christian authors like L.A. Marzulli, theorize that these various prototypes to the final mark of the beast will eventually be able to alter the DNA, extend ones life and would effectively transform humans into non-humans. The basis for these theories by Bible teachers is grounded on what Jesus prophesies will happen in the Last Days in Matthew 24:37, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” One of the activities in the days of Noah was a corruption of the human gene pool (see Genesis chapter 6 and the Book of Enoch). In fact, Noah is described as being “a just man and perfect in his generations,” the word for “perfect” there is the Hebrew word “tamiym,” according to Strong’s Concordance H8549, which means “pure” or “unblemished” primarily in a physical or genetic sense.

With all that said, the entire world is being desensitized into accepting the future mark of the beast, and the driving force to seek this mark will be blasphemous. Why? Because members of all the other world religions, with the exception of the informed Christians, will rush to accept this mark as a method to get “spiritually promoted” as in the case of the Muslims and those of the Bahá’í Faith, to “evolve” in the case of the Humanists or become “more god-like” in the case of those who belong to Eastern religions like Hinduism and Buddhism. The Bible warns that this mark will be humanity’s final massive act of rebellion against the true God, in the form of blasphemy. Everyone will reject the true God and will worship the “strange god” of the Antichrist who bears “the name of blasphemy” upon his head (Revelation 13:1; Daniel 11:36-39). Whatever you do, do not accept this mark of the beast when it arrives. This mark will quite possibly be touted as an evolutionary upgrade by transhumanists or even the aliens, it will be used to buy and sell goods, but more importantly will be used as a sign of allegiance to a religious belief system. Those who do accept, will be damned forever, because Jesus came to save human beings; not human hybrids (Hebrews 2:5-18; Titus 2:11; 1 Timothy 2:3, 4):

Revelation 14:9-11
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

5) Prediction of Weapons of Mass Destruction

This is a very fascinating point, so please keep reading. The Bible contains passages which seems to suggest that mankind would at some point in time wield weapons of mass destruction:

Jeremiah 50:9
For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.

Jeremiah 50:9 above seems to be describing “smart weapons,” like cruise missiles. The word for arrows here, “chets,” can also be used to describe “javelins” or “spears.” In addition to this, the arrows are described as “a mighty expert man” – please note this description is directed to these “arrows” and not the ones firing them – these so-called arrows have an intelligence of their own. The fact that “none shall return in vain” confirms that these weapons are carefully guided and cannot miss! Hence Jeremiah 50:9, written around 627 to 585 B.C., is quite possibly insinuating that mankind will eventually invent smart weaponry or precision-guided munition.

Zephaniah 1:14, 15
The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and DISTRESS, a day of WASTENESS and DESOLATION, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of CLOUDS and thick darkness,

Nuclear Explosion

Many Bible scholars agree that this passage in Zephaniah, written in 625 B.C., seems to be describing the scenes, sights and aftermath of an atomic bomb detonating or more specifically the aftermath of a nuclear war of apocalyptic proportions. Here we see emphasis placed on sorrow, “wasteness” or utter destruction, distress and desolation. We even see that the Bible for some odd reason felt the need to describe it as a “day of clouds,” a very peculiar detail, which eerily sounds similar to the massive mushroom clouds produced by atomic bombs. Is that passage just a coincidence? With only that scripture, I would understand if you might think so, but by the end of this point you will soon see that this is not a coincidence – take a look at this passage below:

Zechariah 14:12
And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their FLESH SHALL CONSUME AWAY while they stand upon their feet, and their EYES SHALL CONSUME AWAY in their holes, and their TONGUE SHALL CONSUME AWAY in their mouth.


Has anyone ever heard of a plague that strips the flesh off a person’s bones, and dissolves their eyeballs and tongues? No, there is no such disease, however, the late physicist Samuel T. Cohen knows a perfect candidate for the technology which is possibly being described there. And of course he would know…he invented it – it is called the Neutron Bomb! Yes, the neutron bomb is the one and only device that we are aware of that can accomplish the very same things in that passage, written by Zechariah around 520 to 518 B.C. The bomb when detonated, creates an explosion of subatomic particles called neutrons which act like tiny bullets bombarding and shredding apart the large organic molecules contained in all living matter, while these “bullets” tend to miss the smaller molecules found in our infrastructure. What is the end result? To put it simply, all the living organisms die, while all non-living things remain remarkably intact. In my opinion, the Bible uses the best word available in that ancient time for such a modern device, it likens it to a “plague,” and just as all plagues which only attacks people, but leaves infrastructure intact, this bomb accomplishes the very same effect! The living tissue literally gets shredded apart and dissolves away, precisely as the Bible describes. Please feel free to watch the following video where the inventor of this nuclear weapon explains its effects personally:


Now, do you still doubt that the Bible seems to have anticipated the invention of nuclear weaponry? Well, I saved what maybe the one of the best biblical evidence of this for last, however, there are more:

Revelation 6:13, 15
And the STARS of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, HID THEMSELVES in the DENS and in the rocks of the mountains;

Some Bible scholars believe that this reference to “stars of heaven” falling to the Earth in Revelation 6:13 may be a symbolic reference to nuclear bombs, because stars actually operate by nuclear reactions, and just like atomic bombs, they also release radioactive particles. When I first read these passages, I had always wondered why these men were hiding within the dens and underground from “stars” in Revelation 6:15? This scenario sounds precisely like what is referred to as “nuclear fallout” – they are quite possibly shielding and protecting themselves from the residual nuclear radiation in those dens. Are you still convinced that the Bible is just a useless moldy book? The Bible prophesies that in the Last Days billions of people will die and that the Earth will be destroyed by mankind’s actions, people laughed about such claims before, but after the invention of nuclear weapons all the skeptics are now silent. In light of all that I have said, I think we need to pay more attention to the claims of this so-called moldy book!:

Isaiah 24:1, 4-6
Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

Zechariah 13:8, 9
And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Revelation 11:18
And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that Thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest DESTROY them which DESTROY THE EARTH.

My question to you is this: Are you saved? Now is not the time to play games, you know what is unfolding in the news these days with ISIS, Iran is racing towards getting nuclear weapons and Russia is constantly threatening to kick start World War III. Why take the chance? Let’s weigh the options here rationally, if I am wrong in my beliefs then I have nothing to lose, however, if you are living without the covering of the Lord Jesus Christ and if you are wrong, then you will have everything to lose! Be wise – choose life – accept the sacrifice that Jesus has paid for your sins, repent of your sins and please get right with God before time runs out:

Matthew 16:24-26
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

For those who still refuse to believe and think that all that I have shared is just paranoia and believe that I am just another Christian crackpot, then I will share this final prophecy, which is actually God’s message for you. The Bible has predicted that people, who are unwilling to reject their own lusts, will mock and reject the fact that we are in the Last Days, that the Lord will return soon and are ignorant that the Lord is actually delaying His coming for their own sake. God loves you very much and is knocking at your door of your heart. Will you answer?:

2 Peter 3:3, 4, 7, 9
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Christianity vs. Atheism Debate Dave Hunt vs. Professor Christopher diCarlo


The video above is a debate that was held at All Saints Catholic High School, Ontario, Canada. The moderator is Peter Koropatwa who has a Master degree in Apologetics. Dave Hunt is a Christian apologist, speaker, and world renown author. Professor Christopher diCarlo is an instructor at the University of Ontario and is an outspoken activist for critical thinking, humanism and secularism. He was once a Roman Catholic who then became an Atheist.

The popular claim of atheists is that, “The Bible cannot be trusted, it is not a science book. Shouldn’t Science be the one to determine absolute truth (big ‘T’ Truth)?” Well my response to that is yes, the Bible can be trusted. I will admit it does not go into copious scientific details but when it talks about science it is always correct. I will demonstrate here 20 scientific points outlined by the Bible which Dave Hunt did not mention in his debate. I will warn Atheists this, if you navigate and read through all my points you will find it hard to cling to Atheism anymore:


1) The Earth is Hung By Nothing
2) Earth is Round
3) The Universe is Flat and Expanding
4) The Sun has an orbit in Space
5) Pleiades and Orion’s Belt
6) The Anthropic Principle
7) The 1st law of Thermodynamics
8) The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics: Entropy
9) We live in a Digital Simulation!
10) Air has Weight
11) Light behaves as a particle and a wave
12) The Formation of Wind Patterns and the Coriolis Effect
13) Springs of the Sea
14) The Water or Hydrologic Cycle
15) Anticipation of Microbes, Bacteria, Viruses and Diseases
16) The institution of Quarantine Procedures
17) Life is in the Blood
18) The Bible knew the ideal time for Circumcision and its benefits
19) Electricity can send messages?
20) Bible talks about Dinosaurs


 


1) The Earth is Hung By Nothing:

Job 26:7
He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

This is interesting because  during the same time that Job was written many cultures around the world suggested that the world sat on elephants which all stood on a world tortoise (the Hindus) or that the Earth was held up by the titan god Atlas (the Greeks). The Egyptians even believed the world was suspended by five massive poles. In 1608, Sir Isaac Newton, a Christian, theorized that the Earth was suspended by nothing in space. Job was written over 3000 years ago, the fact that the world is hung by nothing was confirmed by Astronauts only in 1961.

2) Earth is Round:

Isaiah 40:22
It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.

The Bible describes the Earth as a “circle,” we all of course know that the Earth is slightly spherical but there was no Hebrew word for “spherical” or “sphere.” The Hebrew word for “circle” used here is “Khoog.” God is omnipresent and from his perspective the Earth would indeed appear as a circle to Him at all angles. The Bible, while limited by vocabulary, still successfully showed that the Earth is like a sphere and I will explain how. If the Bible indicated that the world was a “flat circle” then, the Earth would have two shapes it would look like a “circle” in one view and also like a “line” (“flat”) in another view. However, the Bible only says “circle” which shows that the Earth has to be circular from every perspective which is a very clever way to convey the meaning of spherical in spite of the vocabulary limitation.

The Bible further refutes the “flat circle” idea when one considers what it tells us in Job 26:10:

Job 26:10
He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

The above verse clearly describes what we know as “terminators” in astronomy, which are a twilight zones which separates the day side and night side of planets. As such this verse confirms that the Earth is round in nature. Of course, I have one more proof to share with you, which further confirms that the Bible says the Earth is round:

Revelation 9:2
And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

For those reading this, who thinks the Bible says the Earth is flat, think again! Because the Bible tells us that the Earth has a “bottomless pit.” What is a bottomless pit? In geometry, a “bottomless pit” is a term synonymous to “the center of a sphere.” From a sphere’s center all directions are up and hence theoretically fits the description of a bottomless pit. As such, we see that the Bible once again indirectly confirms that the Earth has a spherical nature. It must be noted that for every proof, it avoids the error of saying that it is a perfect sphere – so I am astonished at how God cleverly avoids this error. The fact that the Earth is round was also confirmed by Astronauts in 1961.

3) The Universe is Flat and Expanding:

Isaiah 44:24
Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

Isaiah 40:22
It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.

The Bible repetitively states that God stretches the heavens out  in Job 9:8;  Job 26:7; Job 37:18; Ezekiel 1:22; Isaiah 40:22; Jeremiah 51:15; and many more verses. The oldest sources of this fact in the Bible is over 3000 years old, but science has only recently discovered that the universe is expanding. Edwin Hubble in 1929, discovered that the universe is in fact showing signs of expansion. Scientists also believe that the universe is thin in one dimension, in other words, flat. I find this interesting because the heavens in the Bible is sometimes described as a “curtain” and we know that curtains can be stretched but more importantly is flat. I would go further on to say that the “curtain” and “tent” descriptions subtly show that the universe is also in fact finite as point 7) will show, as an infinitely long curtain or large tent is not possible.

4) The Sun has an orbit in Space:

Psalms 19:6
His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

Scientists laughed at the above verse because it seemed to suggest that the sun moves around the earth, which we know is not true. But they failed to recognize that the motion is not relative to the Earth in the above verse but rather the “heaven.” Science have proven now that out sun has an orbit in space and is not stationary which is a very common misconception. The sun travels at about 600,000 miles per hour within a “circuit” exactly as described in the Bible.  It was Thomas Wright in 1750 who first suggested that the sun has an orbit which was further elaborated by Immanuel Kant in 1755. The book of Psalms made this claim over 3000 years ago! How did the author know this?

5) Pleiades and Orion’s Belt:

Job 38:31
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

This verse makes two points that a)  there are bonds between the seven stars of  the Pleiades and b) that the three stars of Orion can be “loosed.” The first point has been recently proven by scientists; there are gravitational forces between the stars of the Pleiades.  What we see as seven stars is actually a collection of 250 suns all bound together in the same orbit and drifting in the same south eastern direction in space. Pleiades are bound together much like a school of sardines in the ocean and precisely has the relationship that the Bible indicates. From Lick Observatory Dr. Robert J. Trumpler says, “The Pleiades stars may thus be compared to a swarm of birds, flying together to a distant goal.”

With respect to Orion’s belt, scientists have made calculations that in time the two right-hand stars Mintaka and Alnilam will approach to each other and form a naked-eye double.  While the third star, Alnitak, will eventually drift away to the east and thus “break the band” of Orion’s belt. Therefore this verse has a dual meaning to it; it is actually a fact and a prophecy at the same time.

6) The Anthropic Principle:

Isaiah 40:12
Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

Isaiah 45:18
For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

The anthropic principle states that universe shows signs of design which seems to be tailored with mankind and all life in mind. This was the conclusion after a half century of astronomy and physics which shows that laws of physics and the constants display signs of fine-tuning to ensure that man can live. A simple example of this is the position of the Earth from the sun; not to far and not too close just right. There are many other examples of anthropic principle, for instance, one can look no futher than water. Water is the one of a handful of natural substances that when solid can actually float upon itself, a property which makes it possible for fishes to survive in frozen lakes under sheets of ice. This principle was first popularized by the comments of Robert Dicke in 1961, thousands of years after the Bible made this claim.

7) The 1st law of Thermodynamics:

Genesis 2:1, 2
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

The 1st law of Thermodynamics simply states that energy cannot be created nor be destroyed; that the energy throughout  the universe is finite and fixed. Well the verse above in simple words infer the same meaning. It was Rudolf Clausius and William Rankine who first coined this law in 1850, thousands of years after the Bible indicated that the universe and its energy is finite and constant.

8) The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics: Entropy:

Psalms 102:25, 26
Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

The 2nd law of Thermodynamics state that entropy or decay is on the rise throughout the universe as energy is wasted and as matter is dispersed. This law is often accredited to Nicolas Carnot in 1824 . Once again the Bible presented complex modern science in relatively simple words and imagery.

9)  We live in a Digital Simulation!:

Hebrews 11:3
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

The Bible from the verses above when read carefully convey the meaning that this is not the real world; that we  are rather living in a fabricated reality, just like “The Matrix” trilogy. The fact is that scientists, specifically the quantum physicists, have determined that the universe is in fact a complex hologram or an elaborate digital simulation. They came to this conclusion after the double slit experiment and observing that electrons behave as a wave or particle depending on the influence of the observer of the experiment (termed  Wave Function Collapse). This is a truly fascinating discovery, I encourage you to watch this clip for more on this:

10) Air has Weight:

Job 28:25
To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

It was always taught that air has no weight to it. However, the Bible verse above clearly indicates that it does. Science in ancient times classified air as an element called “Aether,” which is Greek for “fresh air,” this substance was for a very long time was assumed to be weightless. It was in 1640 that Evangelista Torricelli discovered that air in fact does have weight, which is exactly what the Bible says.

11) Light behaves as a particle and a wave:

Job 38:19
Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,

It was only in the 17th century that men described light as being waves or particles. Christiaan Huygens was one of the first to propose the wave nature of light, which is confirmed by phrase “the way” in the verse above. On the other hand, Isaac Newton was the one who proposed that light exists as a particle which is also insinuated by the Bible’s use of the words “dwelleth” and “place” as if light has a fixed or stationary nature to it (locality). It is through Albert Einstein and the “Particle-Wave Duality” in the 20th century that both opposing theories became true; that light was proven to behave as a wave and particles.  Is it just a coincidences that the Bible got the nature of light right for both natures of light? I don’t think so, the odds of that would be astronomical, pun intended.

12) The Formation of Wind Patterns and the Coriolis Effect:

Job 38:24
By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?

The Bible above obviously suggests above that the light creates the winds on the Earth. This is proven true by science: the hot air over sunlit places rises and cold air moves in to fill the gap, thus wind is produced. The jet stream was discovered by Wasaburo Oishi in 1920s. The most interesting thing about this is that at the same time the Bible indicated that light caused winds on Earth other cultures like the Greeks claimed that their god Aeolus blows upon the Earth to create winds. Strange enough, this same culture that produced such an absurd claim is the same one that provided the discipline of philosophy (from Plato, Aristotle and Socrates) still taught  today and accepted, while the Bible proven time and time again is rejected.

Ecclesiastes 1:6
The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.

The above verse clearly and accurately describes the Coriolis effect which explains the origin of wind pattern and more significantly defines them as having “loops” just as the Bible correctly uses the word “circuits.” The Coriolis effect was named by its founder Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis in 1835, however, the term was only applied  in meteorology in the early 20th century.

13)  Springs of the Sea:

Job 38:16
Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?

This above verse was for a very long time mocked and laughed at by skeptics until the 23 foot long submersible called “Alvin” with 3 geologists inside discovered hot springs at the bottom of the ocean in the Galapagos Rift in the Pacific Ocean. The springs were rich in Chlorine and minerals and its plumes extended as far as 13m high.

14)  The Water or Hydrologic Cycle:

Amos 9:6
It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.

Job 36:27, 28
For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:
Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.

Ecclesiastes 1:7
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

It is obvious to anyone with sense that these verses all perfectly describe what we call the Water Cycle. The Bible wrote this over 3000 years ago, long before this fact became popularized by Bernard Palissy in the 16th century.

15)  Anticipation of Microbes, Bacteria, Viruses and Diseases:

Leviticus 15:13
And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.

God establishes the laws of cleansing oneself with clean running water to the Israelites. At the same time this was happening, the Egyptians used oils and scents made from the burnt remains of plants and animals, that only masked the odor. So, Moses was not inspired by the traditions of men but by the wisdom of God Almighty. These practices was founded thousands of years before disease causing microbes like bacteria were discovered by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek in the 17th century. These cleansing laws were invented long before viruses were even discovered in 1892 by Dmitri Ivanovsky.

16) The institution of Quarantine Procedures:

Leviticus 13:45, 46
And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean.
All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.

The above sounds as a carbon copy of the quarantine practices of our modern day. In fact, the Europeans used these procedures between 1348 to 1359 to combat the spread of the Black Death. In fact the word “quarantine” comes from the Venetian word “quaranta” which means “forty” which was the number of days that ships were required to remain isolated in order to avoid the spread of the Black Death. Informed Christians know the significance of the number forty in the Bible. If you are not aware of the significance of this number please read this. This is a clear instance where science has applied the teachings of the Bible – of course it will never admit that this practice originated from the Bible.

17) Life is in the Blood:

Leviticus 17:11, 14
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.

The Bible once again proves a fact which is well accepted by science. The blood serves various purposes but one of the major ones being the means to deliver oxygen to the cells throughout the body via the red blood cells. Red blood cells were discovered in 1685 by Jan Swammerdam and hemoglobin, that facilitates the oxygen carrying property in blood, was discovered decades later. In fact George Washington , the first US president, who was suffering from a throat infection died  in 1799, because of bloodletting, an archaic and unbiblical medical “cure” practiced by guess who? The Greeks.

18) The Bible knew the ideal time for Circumcision and its benefits:

Genesis 17:12
And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.

It is a proven scientific fact that the 8th day is the ideal day to perform surgeries in babies. The 8th day is the day where the prothrombin and vitamin K, both involved in the coagulation of blood, are at above average levels, making the cut heal faster. How can Moses possibly know this? Trial and error? With trial and error he would have had dead babies on his hands! Another interesting fact is that circumcision  has been shown to reduce the risk of STD transmissions by half! These are all remarkable proofs that the Bible is certainly inspired by an all knowing God; not man.

19) Electricity can send messages?:

Job 38:35
Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?

The verse above is perhaps one of the most telling verses in the Bible, as it implies that electricity can be used to send messages. Guess what? The Bible is right once again! The very first electrical message was successfully sent by Francis Ronalds’ primitive electrostatic  telegraph which was perfected by Pavel Schilling, who made the electromagnetic telegraph in 1832. This may be considered as another prophetic verse.

20)  Bible talks about Dinosaurs:

Job 40:15-17
Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.

The above is a clear description of a dinosaur possibly a brontosaurus or maybe a titanosaurus. In any case, God must be describing a living animal which Job had to be familiar with. Some may debate that this may be an elephant or a hippo but this verse demands common sense, none of those animals have tails that remotely behaves or  resembles a cedar tree! Evolutionists will of course attack this verse as it makes the additional implication that mankind lived with dinosaurs as recent as Job’s time which was a little over 3000 years ago. Even if you deny the above verse there are still several other verses that describe dinosaurs even with known animals of today: Leviathan (Job 41:1; Psalms 74:14;Psalms 104:26; Isaiah 27:1), Unicorns according to the Bible sounds more like a dinosaur than the stereotypical mythical horse we know (Numbers 24:8; Psalms 92:10; Job 39:9-12; Isaiah 34:7) and Pterodactyls (Isaiah 14:29; Isaiah 30:6). More Dinosaurs scriptures ( Deuteronomy 32:33; Job 30:29; Psalm 91:13; Isaiah 34:13; Isaiah 43:20; Jeremiah 14:6).

Just to go a little more into Evolution, nothing takes God by surprise, the Bible actually makes a remarkable prediction that the Last Days will have false scientific ideas being taught:

1 Timothy 6:20
O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called.

I hope that you understand now that the Bible is indeed a text which is worthy of study, these are just a handful of biblical truths confirmed by science. Since the Bible is correct when discussing scientific matters then it can, by inference, be reliable when it discusses about God, and His plan to use His Son, Jesus Christ as the means to save humanity. We all need to accept God’s word. The Bible states that Jesus existed, Jesus claimed to be God in the Bible, therefore God does in fact exist and Christians serve a Living God.

Psalms 33:4
For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

~Planet Zion
