    What is your view when it comes to science and the Bible?

    The Bible says our world is a few thousand years old. Science says 4.6 billion years old. In all these differences, how do you view science facts from the Bible? Can both of them be associated in ways?

    There are not science facts in the Bible.  The Bible is a religious artifact.  It is not a scientific text and nothing contained inside the Bible has any sort of scientific evidence supporting it.  This is not attack the Bible.  I like the Bible.  It has some very good ideas in it, but there is no relation between science and the Bible.  Anyone who says there is either doesn't know the Bible or doesn't know science.

      Dude, towards the end of the book of Job, God gives Job a huge science lesson.  check this link out and you'll be in awe. http://evidencebible.com/witnessingtool … ible.shtml

      k12wswow: Seriously?  I'm a bit underwhelmed:  The very first one is wrong. "He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth"  Is what the text of the Bible says.  There's nothing about a sphere.  The rest are equally as misleading.

      Why is it so hard to believe that some more inteligent then we are , who uses more then we do of our thinking abilities, we only use about five % or less many at 1% .So just think if we could use 100% we would be pefect and many things would be made

      Kiss andTales: We use about 10% of our brain a lot of the time, but there are many times when we use close to 90% of our brains at once, but even if we used 100% of our brains all the time, we would hardly be "perfect", just meeting our potential.

    It's a historic text, most of these have "scientific facts" that have been since corrected.

      It's not even an historic text.  There is very little in the Bible that can be independently confirmed, mostly only very general events.  At best it is a collection of stories written to teach people life lessons.

      Oops, sorry, "historical"? I meant an ancient text. It has value as a way for us to learn about ancient people, not history.

    Thomas Edison is credited with the electrict light bulb ( We have the creation of sponges, fungi, bacteria,glow worms,insects,fish that produce cold light in many colors!)

    We have birds that have compasses in their heads, they also have biological clocks ,some microscopic bacteria that have rotary motors that run forward  and reverse,

    The flight of birds are a copy of later development of air planes.


    Bats and dolphins are experts with sonar.


    If man can create machanical things with only a small percent of his brain .Then some one greater smarter more powerful then our selfs has made many wonderfull things including people not robots ,with his 100%!

    The greatest difference is the life force that we can not give to what we create . that is his own patent. and the power if we lose that life force to return it . Only he and his son have that.

    "Science" says 4.6 billion years old?  That's funny.  I read once in a public school texbook science book from the 1940s that earthquakes are caused by disturbances in the earth's magnetic field and that "the Porto Rican is not a modern man, as we understand modern man to be: but in his ignorance, is actually more of a savage or lesser human."  The point?  Science changes.  Sometimes it actually catches up to the Bible.

      Science doesn't change.  The same search for the truth with the same proven rules for centuries now.  New data refines conclusions.  Also many insane ideas are touted as science by people with no credentials.  Be careful what you call science.
