Not necessarily the people who read, study and believe the Bible, or those who wrote it, have wisdom of their own. But we do have access to the God who influenced it's writing and who created the world and all. And I think He knows more than any human scientist. And we have access to His wisdom and knowledge by faith in His Holy Word and through knowing Him personally in our hearts and lives. And by His indwelling Holy Spirit of God. And through prayer.

Oh please, We know more about the Universe today than we did 20 years ago. The Bibles and the Quran were political works, not science books. In the Holy Books, the world was flat and the center of the Universe. And some cast member walked on water.

The Bible has insights into the human condition that are as applicable today as they were then. I wouldn't take the Bible as a science textbook.

Answer #10 | 06/06 2017 12:45
No, they wouldn't and didn't. The early writers clearly thought that the sky was a dome over a flat earth and that the sun, moon and stars were fixed in the dome. Heaven was past the dome.

Answer #12 | 06/06 2017 12:20
They were philosophers who subscribed to the notion that everything in the universe was created deliberately for our benefit. They saw how humans had domesticated animals and mastered crops, and those both predated the written word. Thus they assumed that was simply how things had always been. You can't blame them for drawing faulty conclusions. They didn't have all the facts that we do now.

No, they were not even close. However it is alarming that some are so dim as to reject proven science in favour of the rubbish in that book.
