Things the bible got wrong scientifically speaking. Lets start in Genesis chapter 1...

There was day and night before there was an earth...
There was light before there was a sun...
The earth was formed before the sun...
Plants were growing before there was a sun...
The sun moon and stars were created on the same day and after the earth...
The moon is light source...
The sky is a solid object, like a roof...

And that's just in the first chapter of the first book...
So tell us again about how the bible is always correct.

1. He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth. circle not sphere let me post a circle for you
6. nothing about movements of light. and i also don't believe that science believed in that. even idiot knows light has to move if you move your torch
7. When he established the force of the wind and measured out the waters,
-job 28:25
there is nothing about weight of air
8. The Orbit of The Sun (around earth)

Actually, I've read it, and I misunderstand it too. It's full of more contradictions than a Phoenix Wright Courtroom.

Even as a Christian, I wish people would stop posting this **** on here. The same way nobody is going to convince a christian to abandon their beliefs with a comment or piece of content, no Christian is going to convince an atheist of anything.

The bible isn't a scientific book. The fact that Christians look to it for scientific knowledge is ******** . There are certain points (tee earth being round) it does, in fact, touch on.

This, in my opinion, is where a big source of confusion stems from. The bible is book that lays down principals for life. Being a good person. Loving your neighbor. Being honest. Above all, showing love. The bible delves into details that cover the last 6,000 years because that's what is relevant to what it's teaching. If you started working for a factory that makes brake pads, you would gain no useful knowledge about your job if you were also briefed about how the land used to be used for trading beaver pelts during the 1700s.

Concepts such as the earth being much older than 6,000 years aren't condemned by the bible. It simply isn't addressed. God creating the earth in "7 days", in many religions, isn't viewed as a literal week. The bible has examples of using the term "day" as a span of time, rather than a set period. Ignorant religion is what creates Christ-fags. I like to hope there's a few people who believe in creation but are willing to do at least a little personal research.

A lot of these are completely wrong

1. The bible said the earth is a (flat?) circle, not a sphere
2. The number of stars is finite and can be estimated
3. True, altough that theory was fiercly debated
4. There were many scientific theories about 'invisible elements'
need i continue

"the bible is not a scientific book, but where it touches on it, it is always correct"

and according to christianity the earth was created around 6000-7000 years ago.

Plants were created before the sun. But no, of course, the bible had a clear understanding of science.

Its funny how you say "Science believed" Like there there has always been one standardized science in the world.

This is my favorite facepalm...

2. Incalculable number of stars (Hebrews 11:12)
Science believed there were only 1,100 stars

5. Each star is different(1 Cor 15:41)
Science believed all stars were the same
