Genesis claims the firmament is a "Roof" over the world<quoted text>No mistakes...REALLY??
"All flying insects that walk on FOUR legs are detestable to you"
"There are some winged creatures that walk on FOUR legs that you may eat"
ALL insect have SIX legs, your bible is WRONG. How many winged creatures do you know that have FOUR legs? WRONG once again
You bible classifies BATS as BIRDS, you bible is MISTAKEN.
Genesis claims the firmament is a "Roof" over the world.....WRONG
Genesis refers to the moon as a light.......WRONG
Genesis claims the earth was formed before the sun....REALLY WRONG.
Another Bible verse skeptics claims teaches dome cosmology comes from the book of Amos:
The One who builds His upper chambers in the heavens And has founded His vaulted dome over the earth...(Amos 9:6)
This is the only verse in which the word "dome" actually appears in English translations of the Bible, but it is only found in the NASB translation. Here are some other translations of the verse:
It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth...(Amos 9:6, KJV)
he who builds his lofty palace in the heavens and sets its foundation on the earth...(Amos 9:6, NIV)
He built his palace in the heavens and let its foundations rest on the earth...(Amos 9:6, CEV)
He that buildeth his ascension in heaven, and hath founded his bundle upon the earth...(Amos 9:6, DRB)
It is he that builds his ascent up to the sky, and establishes his promise on the earth...(Amos 9:6, LXX)26
The Hebrew word in question is aguddah, meaning a band:- band(1), bands(1), bunch(1).27 The other translations use the word "foundation" (NIV) and troop" (KJV). Here are the other three verses in which the word aguddah appears:
"And you shall take a bunch [aguddah] of hyssop and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and apply some of the blood that is in the basin to the lintel and the two doorposts; and none of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning." (Exodus 12:22)
And the sons of Benjamin gathered together behind Abner and became one band [aguddah], and they stood on the top of a certain hill.(2 Samuel 2:25)
this not the fast which I choose, To loosen the bonds of wickedness, To undo the bands [aguddah] of the yoke, And to let the oppressed go free, And break every yoke?" (Isaiah 58:6)
So, it is obvious that the NASB translation of Amos 9:6 is off base. This example is typical of the kind of objections raised by atheists. Their MO is to find an unusual translation (usually found in only one translation) and use this as "proof" that the Bible is inaccurate.
