101 Scientific Facts the Bible foretold

http://www.eternal-productions.org/101science.html

Pretty cool list of several things declared in the Bible during times when the rest of world thought differently and have now been discovered to be true or accurate. Even things that were discovered in the past 100 years.

The Bible states that God created life according to kinds (Genesis 1:24). The fact that God distinguishes kinds, agrees with what scientists observe – namely that there are horizontal genetic boundaries beyond which life cannot vary. Life produces after its own kind. Dogs produce dogs, cats produce cats, roses produce roses. Never have we witnessed one kind changing into another kind as evolution supposes. There are truly natural limits to biological change.
lol

This is actually a pretty significant piece of evidence. A very interesting read nonetheless.

Re: 101 Scientific Facts the Bible foretold

"Reproduction explained (Genesis 1:27-28; 2:24; Mark 10:6-8). While evolution has no mechanism to explain how male and female reproductive organs evolved at the same time, the Bible says that from the beginning God made them male and female in order to propagate the human race and animal kinds."

Scientific facts foretold by the Bible? It appears they're going out of their way to say the Bible doesn't agree with science.

These are funny, thanks for the link.

23.
Sexual promiscuity is dangerous to your health (1 Corinthians 6:18; Romans 1:27). The Bible warns that “he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body,” and that those who commit homosexual sin would “receive in themselves” the penalty of their error. Much data now confirms that any sexual relationship outside of holy matrimony is unsafe.


LOL! holy crap some of these are waaay out there ******ed


70.
Pleasure explained (Psalm 36:8). Evolution cannot explain pleasure – even the most complex chemicals do not experience bliss. However, the Bible states that God “gives us richly all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17). Pleasure is a gift from God.

"12.
Chicken or egg dilemma solved (Genesis 1:20-22). Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This question has plagued philosophers for centuries. The Bible states that God created birds with the ability to reproduce after their kind. Therefore the chicken was created first with the ability to make eggs! Yet, evolution has no solution for this dilemma."

ROFL or to be more specific I have just spluttered some of my weetabix* all over my monitor as well as milk coming out of my nose as a result of reading this one. Thank you OP, it was worth it for the greater cause

Sure.

Noble behavior understood (John 15:13; Romans 5:7-8). The Bible and history reveal that countless people have endangered or even sacrificed their lives for another. This reality is completely at odds with Darwin’s theory of the survival of the fittest.
The evolutionary mechanisms by which altruism arises are well known. The Selfish Gene talks about it quite a bit. This one is funny because of the ignorance displayed, and also because of the irony of saying the Bible agrees with science, but then claiming evolution is wrong.

Again, lol at thinking evolution has no solution for this "dilemma"

Which came first, proteins or DNA (Revelation 4:11)? For evolutionists, the chicken or egg dilemma goes even deeper. Chickens consist of proteins. The code for each protein is contained in the DNA/RNA system. However, proteins are required in order to manufacture DNA. So which came first: proteins or DNA? The ONLY explanation is that they were created together.
Same as the other two.

The fact that God once flooded the earth (the Noahic Flood) would be denied (2 Peter 3:5-6). There is a mass of fossil evidence to prove this fact, yet it is flatly ignored by most of the scientific world because it was God’s judgment on man’s wickedness.
I Noah's ark. More specifically, I love watching Christians defend the story.

edit/ Again this site rejects the scientific consensus in favor of what the Bible says.

OMG!!!!!!!! Reading this made me laugh as hard as 11,12 and 13 together. The misuse of the phrase nonetheless when the first sentence is not detracting from the link is just the cheery on top for me.

Erf, your crazy............I like you, but you are actually crazy.

Re: 101 Scientific Facts the Bible foretold

I think you're forgetting that the Bible was written thousands of years ago. That's where the impressive part comes in to play, because science didn't catch up until much later.

You may pass this off as insignificant. And the flury of laughter that has come shows that you're trying to do just that... "pass it off".

Re: 101 Scientific Facts the Bible foretold

Impressive. Can you name 1 scientific fact predicted by the Bible that scientists are not sure is true? Is the universe 11 dimensional? Is gravity the result of a spin 2 massless gauge boson? Is the universe supersymmetric and what breaks supersymmetry? Anything like this would be fine.

Re: 101 Scientific Facts the Bible foretold

i think that you are also forgetting that before the bible was written, human beings had been living on the earth for 100,000+ years. and the level of infantile "scientific observation" shown by these bible passages can easily be attributed to the general populations' infantile understanding of the world around them.

for example, before the bible was written, the Greeks had already theorized that everything was made up of invisible-to-the-naked-eye particles which they called "atoms"

I think that your forgetting that every single point follows a formula where the author takes something in the Bible out of context and then spews pseudo-science(of the most ignorant variety) over it to try and validate this out of context and heavily interpreted (butchered as you would say) biblical reference.

+1, it amazes me how religious people will blindly defend anything that supports their faith.
