The bible is first and foremost
a spiritual book for the dual faiths of Judaism and Christianity and
contains many truths from philosophy to morality. It is claimed
that the Bible was written by, or at least inspired by 'The One True
God', if that is so, should we not expect to find wisdom and
knowledge within its pages that is beyond the understanding of human
kind, or at least beyond the understanding of the people that existed
at the time it was written?
Of course the answer to that question is 'Yes', and in these pages of this website, I hope to show that the Bible does in fact include many truths about science, truth that in many cases has only been confirmed in the past century. The BIG question is, why did man not accept these truths sooner?
Just added a Resources and Downloads site reachable from this site, the site contains resources for learning, debating & teaching about God's good creation. Eventually we hope this will be an extensive library for both adults and children, so keep dropping by to check out the new goodies all for free.

How many time have I heard it said that, “The Bible is not a science textbook”? I have lost count, however it seems that science has only comparatively recently caught up with the Bible in many scientific areas. So just in case someone tells you that there is no science in the Bible, here are just a few scientific facts that were included in the Bible thousands of years before science confirmed them.
The earth is a sphere
(Isaiah 40:22). 22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
It was thought then (c730BC) that The earth was a flat disk.
number of stars
(Jeremiah 33:22) 22 I will make the descendants of David my servant and the Levites who minister before me as countless as the stars of the sky and as measureless as the sand on the seashore.' .
It was thought then (c627BC) that there were Only 1,100 stars.
Creation made of invisible elements
(Hebrews 11:3) 3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Science was ignorant on the subject Atomic structures.
floor contains deep valleys and mountains
(2 Samuel 22:16; Jonah 2:6) 16 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at the rebuke of the LORD, at the blast of breath from his nostrils.
It was thought then (c1010BC) that The ocean floor was flat.
(Job 38:16). 16Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep?
It was thought then ( Before 2100 BC) that Ocean was fed only by the rivers and the rain.
The above are just a few of the scientific facts to be found in the Bible, facts that at the time could have only been known and imparted to His people by a God-Creator, only He could know these truths.
Read on and be prepared to be amazed.

Hebrews 11:1 gives us the definition of what faith really is, it says:
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.“
The Greek word here for “evidence” is a simple word single meaning word meaning “proof.” Faith is the proof of things “not seen.” It is the proof of the heart, instilled there by the Spirit, not science, not education, but the knowledge that comes from the Holy Spirit.
That does not say that we believe without foundation, but we have faith through experience, the experience that God is always right, and God's word, the Bible, is therefore without error. Again that does not mean that the Bible translations are without error, but those errors are down to the interference of man. In many ways the Bible is the best proof that God's word is true, the many prophesies that have been fulfilled and the accuracy of the historical books all say that the Bible is fact. The scientific knowledge in the Bible show that God's knowledge is far in advance of man's. If scientific facts were included in the Bible over three thousand years before man discovered them to be true, why should we not accept the Genesis account of creation? However, despite any translation errors, the 'message' of the Bible is clear and true.
