The Bible is not a science book, but where it touches on science, it is unerring.

A list of Scientific facts from the BIBLE

that were well ahead of our time.

The Earth is a Sphere

Isaiah 40:22 (written between 700-800 B.C.)
Isaiah 40:22 "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, …"
There are people who would accuse Bible believing Christians of believing in a "flat earth", but this obviously would not be the case. ;) This idea that the earth might be a sphere was suggested as early as 540 B.C by Greek philosophers, but the commonly held belief was that the earth was flat. This was the case until the compass was invented and the travels of Columbus and Magellan in the 15th century.

Air has Weight

Job 28:25 (written 2,000 BC)
Job 28:25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
This was discovered by Galileo in the 17th century.

Hydrological Cycle

Ecclesiastes 1:7 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.

Jeremiah 51:16 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth: he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.

Job 36:27 For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:
Job 36:28: Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.
This was not discovered until the 17th century.

The Earth is Suspended in Space

Job 26:7 (written 2,000 BC)
Job 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
At the time this was written, one of the most advanced scientific theories was that the world was sitting on the back of a "giant turtle", or on the back of "Atlas". It wasn't until 1687 A.D. when the idea that the earth was actually suspended in space was introduced to Science through the writings of Sir Issac Newton (a Creation Scientist).

The Stars are Innumerable

Genesis 15:5 (written 1,500 B.C.) also Jeremiah 33:22 & Hebrews 11:12
Genesis 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

Jeremiah 33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.

Hebrews 11:12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
Around 150 A.D, a famous astronomer named Ptolemy declared insistently that there were exactly 1056 stars total. In July 2003 it was announced, after a study called the "Two-Degree Field Galaxy Redshift Survey", that there are approximately 70 sextillion (70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) "observable" stars.

Springs in the Sea

Job 38:16 (written 2,000 BC)
Job 38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
This would have been impossible to have known, until we had the technology that has been developed recent years, yet it was written so long ago.

Light Creates Wind

Job 38:24 (written 2,000 BC)
Job 38:24 By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
Modern science discovered that as the sun heats the earth, the heat rises, cool air descends, and then wind is created.

Plants and Animals Reproduce after their own Kind

Genesis 1:11-12, 21, 24, 25 (written 1,500 BC)
Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Genesis 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
Genesis 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
This is precisely what is observed and tested in modern science.

Much more to come...
(incl. the 1st & 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics, ocean currents, health & sanitation, the bloodstream, etc.)
