The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. (Isaiah 40:8)

The Bible & Science (Part 4)

        It wasn’t until the 1600s that scientists figured out Earth’s water cycle, which involves liquid becoming a gas and water vapor becoming liquid water: (1) The sun evaporates ocean water. (2) The water vapor becomes clouds and falls back to the earth mostly as rain. (3) Finally, the rain collects in rivers and flows back into the ocean. And yet, from 2,500 years earlier we find this statement written in the Bible: 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. ” (Ecclesiastes 1:7). So, how about it Bill Nye (a.k.a. “The Science Guy”) — can you explain how the Bible shed light on the water cycle long before 17th Century science did?

Wisdom vs. Foolishness

WISDOM

        “I enter a most earnest plea that in our hurried and rather bustling life of today we do not lose the hold that our forefathers had on the Bible. I wish to see the Bible study as much a matter of course in the secular colleges as in the seminary. No educated man can afford to be ignorant of the Bible, and no uneducated man can afford to be ignorant of the Bible.’  -Theodore Roosevelt

        “I refuse to believe that modern man, who split the atom and is exploring space, is unable to cope with the grandeur and glory of the King James Version.” –Winston Churchill

FOOLISHNESS

        “Ten years from today and the Bible will be a dead book.” –Robert J. Ingersoll (1833-1899)

        “One hundred years from my day there will not be a Bible in the earth except one that is looked upon by an antiquarian curiosity seeker.” -Voltaire (1694-1778)

*Neither of these quotes came to pass.  Men live and die, but God’s word lives forever!
