Is Science Proving The Bible to Be True? Part Two


Bella Little, Staff Writer

Continuing my “Is Science Proving the Bible to Be True” Here are more examples as to why this could be a possibility that people should start to recognize, showing the correlations between science and the Bible in a time when many people put the two against each other. 


Known as the father of oceanography, Matthew Maury was a Christian who was led to many of his scientific discoveries by the Bible. He was inspired by the expression, “paths of the sea” in Psalm 8:8, which began his journey to look for these so-called “paths,” and led him to the discovery of the warm and cold continental currents. 

Invisible Structure

Everything in the universe (except energy) is made up of matter, which means everything is made of atoms. An atom is made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons, these particles are what keep the atom together. Atoms are so small that we can not see them, making them invisible to the naked eye. In Hebrews 11:3, written 2,000 years ago, scripture writes: “The things which are seen were made of things which we cannot see.” This scripture implies exactly what science discovered: everything we see is made of things which we can not see (atoms).

Earth’s Rotation 

Today we know that the earth rotates on its axis which results in the sun’s rising and setting. Scientists used to believe that the differences between night and day were caused by the sun revolving around the earth, but now we know that is not true. About 4,000 years ago it was written: “Have you commanded the morning since your days; and caused the spring [dawn] to know his place?…It [the earth] is turned as clay to the seal” (Job 38: 12,14). The earth’s rotation is very similar to a clay vessel turning or rotating on a potter’s wheel, clay being used as an analogy of the earth’s rotation. 


In Exodus 23:31 God said, “And..neither shall you eat any flesh that is torn of the beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs.” This was written thousands of years before scientists identified bacteria, and how it became. God offers this provision to Israel so that they may not eat spoiled meat, caused by bacteria.
