Sounds impressive doesn't it? While this can be used to show perhaps that a writing is supernatural in origin, I is not evidence of Divine authorship - in my opinion. Both the Quran and the Vedas have similar phenomenon. All three say there is a brilliant evil force. While this information might have been beyond ancient man- it was not beyond the devil. Any demon from hell had access to this information. There is however a higher level of information unavailable to any but God. Only God knows the final judgment of anything. Only God can pronounce final judgment and make it stick. Only the Bible can show examples of this greater phenomenon, the Quran cannot, the Vedas cannot, the Book of Mormon cannot, and the Pope cannot.

SCIENTIFIC FOREKNOWLEDGE IN THE BIBLE:

HYDROLOGICAL CYCLE:
The earliest literature indicating an understanding of hydrological cycle was apparently around the third or fourth century BC. However, the essential details of this cycle were all revealed in the Bible well before this time. This may be seen from the following texts:

'The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. 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.'- Eccl 1:6,7

'For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.'- Job 36:27,28

'It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.'- Amos 9:6

THE SUN IS ON A CIRCUIT

The sun goes in a circuit (Psalm 19:6). Some scientists scoffed at this verse thinking that it taught geocentricity – the theory that the sun revolves around the earth. They insisted the sun was stationary. However, we now know that the sun is traveling through space at approximately 600,000 miles per hour. It is literally moving through space in a huge circuit – just as the Bible stated 3,000 years ago!

PLEIADES AND ORION

The Pleiades and Orion star clusters described (Job 38:31). The Pleiades star cluster is gravitationally bound, while the Orion star cluster is loose and disintegrating because the gravity of the cluster is not enough to bind the group together. 4,000 years ago God asked Job:

JOB 38:31 “Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades? Can you loosen Orion’s belt?
32 Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs?
33 Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God’s dominion over the earth?"


“Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion?” Yet, it is only recently that we realized that the Pleiades is gravitationally bound, but Orion’s stars are flying apart.

THE HYDROLOGICAL CYCLE:
JOB 36:27-28
'For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: Which the clouds do drop [and] distil upon man abundantly.'

In the 1600's it was finally realized that water could evaporate as a gaseous substance. In 1676, Pierre Perrault and Edme Marriotte made a scientific breakthrough by describing the hydrologic cycle in detail. Yet the Bible described the process thousands of years earlier.

it's very interesting to notice the existence of the true God's science in his words long before the medical science founded its knowledge.

let's read the great doctor said in the bible:

Matthew 6:25
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

is worrying one of the killers of man?

What happens with excessive worrying?
Worrying is feeling uneasy or being overly concerned about a situation or problem. With excessive worrying, your mind and body go into overdrive as you constantly focus on “what might happen.”

In the midst of excessive worrying, you may suffer with high anxiety -- even panic -- during all your waking hours. Many chronic worriers tell of feeling a sense of impending doom or unrealistic fears that only increase their worries. Ultra-sensitive to their environment and to the criticism of others, excessive worriers may see anything -- and anyone -- as a potential threat.

Chronic worrying affects your daily life so much that it interferes with your appetite, lifestyle habits, relationships, sleep, and job performance. Many people who worry excessively are so anxiety-ridden that they seek relief in harmful lifestyle habits such as overeating, eating junk food, cigarette smoking, or using alcohol and drugs.

Man who wrote this Bible, can only be Greek , or was Job a Greek ,but Job walked this earth long before the Greeks came along with their mythology. Unless God spoke Greek , or somebody teached someone these mythical names ,PLEIADES and ORION , and what else ? Amos suppose to have copied the same words. Somebody called this innovations the WORD OF GOD !.

God alone is the judge Who has the last word. What will Chicago look like in 1000 years? Will it still exist? Who will populate it? How about Seattle, Orlando, and Cleveland? Only God knows their final fates. I ent to Israel last year and looked at several places God pronounced judgment. In Zeph 2 God said that the Philistine civilization would disappear as an identifiable people. That one of its Cities Ashkelon would be destroyed, but that in the last days would be rebuilt and lived in by the returned Jews. That was exactly what I found. Against the backdrop of a stunningly beautiful Meditteranean Sea, in the midst of a modern Ashkelon skyline is a huge city park where the remains of ancient Ashkelon surround the visitor. There is the city gate, over there, portions of the wall, here another ancient structure. The God of the Bible had the last word with Ashkelon. The last word is only the attribute of God Himself.

We can all agree that only recently these insertians and innovations were entered into the Bible, words like PLEIADES ORION ALPHA OMEGA , what else? Did Job spoke GREEK , who teached him the Greek astrology and mythology, maybe his scribe later learned Greek . Some believe this to be the Word of GOD, Who teached God (no ridiculous). Amos suppose to have copied the same words. Maybe Job, Amos and their scribes lived in the Greek glory of astrology and Zeus mythology, unless they owned computers. Makes you wonder which parts of bible is Gods Word.

Well - let's establish at least one parameter. They certainly were not inserted before 1950- that's when it was discovered that Pleiedes was unique among the constellations. That it was gravitationally bound together.

NO, NO, IDIOT!

Sometime in the 2nd or 3rd century BC, the Torah was first translated into Koine Greek. The translators chose to translate the ancient Hebrew words "Kesil" and "Kimah" into "Orion" and "Pleiades". JOB DIDN'T SPEAK GREEK SILLY, THE TRANSLATORS DID!!!!!

The ancient Chinese called them "Shen" and "Mao",
The Ancient Japanese called Pleiades "Subaru",
The Cherokee Indians called Pleiades "Anit sutsa"
The Indonesians called Orion "Bintang Waluka"
The Australian Aboriginals called Orion "Julpan".

In Greek mythology Orion was a great giant and mighty hunter, Pleiades was the constellation containing the 7 daughters of Atlas.
In Job's time Orion was a constellation that announced the coming of winter, Plaeiades was a small cluster of stars more visible in the springtime.

Psalm 19.6 is clearly referring to the sun orbiting the earth. Claiming it refers to the sun orbiting our galaxy is just desperation.

19.4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.

This suggests Pleiades is unbindable the exact opposite of your claim.

"or loose the belt of Orion?”

Which suggests the belt of Orion cannot be loosened yet the stars are flying apart.

You need to do better than this.

Actually that's not clear at all. It could be either.

You should read more before you write. At some point in the future you will come across the random piece of information that makes this post asinine - and you will be embarrassed.

The psalms are not doctrinal statements, creeds, or history but that they are both poetry and prayer, poetry intended to be set to music and prayed in worship.
POETRY NOT AN ENCYCLOPEDIA!!!!!!!

These verses from Job are where God is asking Job can he do this or that thing that God does, eg endow the horse with strength, make rain fall, etc.
