Astronomer and physicist Robert Jastrow wrote...
At this moment it seems as though science will never be able to raise the curtain on the mystery of creation. For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.
because that which is known of Elohim is manifest among them, for Elohim has manifested it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible qualities have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, both His everlasting power and Mightiness, for them to be without excuse, because, although they knew Elohim, they did not esteem Him as Elohim, nor gave thanks, but became vain in their reasonings, and their undiscerning heart was darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and changed the esteem of the incorruptible Elohim into the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds and of four-footed beasts and of reptiles. Therefore Elohim gave them up to uncleanness in the lust of their hearts, to disrespect their bodies among themselves, who changed the truth of Elohim into the falsehood, and worshipped and served what was created rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
TS2009 - Romans 1:19-25
Eventhough God's Word is not primarily meant to be a science book, it contains striking statements which were only proven by science many centuries after the Scriptures were written.
Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He set up a tent for the sun, And it is like a bridegroom coming out of his room, It rejoices like a strong man to run the path. Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end; And naught is hidden from its heat.
TS2009 - Psalms 19:4-6
Do you know the laws of the heavens? Or do you set their rule over the earth?
TS2009 - Job 38:33
The sun also rises, and the sun sets, and hurries back to the place where it arose. Going to the south, and turning round to the north, turning, turning, and on its rounds the wind returns.
TS2009 - Ecclesiastes 1:5-6
This could be a description of the solar system as we know it from the 17th century onwards. The Sun and the entire solar system orbits around the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Of course the planets and stars have their influence on the earth. The moon and sun influence the tides for example. This was known from Scriptures long before science ever proved it.
... from nothing
By belief, we understand that the ages were prepared by the word of Elohim, so that what is seen was not made of what is visible.
TS2009 - Hebrews 11:3
Atoms are like miniature solar systems, whose suns are spots of positive electricity and whose planets are electrons.
Atoms are constructed like miniature solar systems. At the center of the atom is the nucleus; orbiting around it are electrons. The nucleus is composed of protons and neutrons, very densely packed together. Hydrogen, the lightest element, has one proton; the heaviest natural element, uranium, has 92 protons.
The visible is made of the invisible.
Earth hanging in space
He it was who stretched out the north over emptiness, hanging the earth upon space,
TS2009 - Job 26:7
Earth is hanging in space.
Have you ever commanded the morning, and caused the dawn to know its place, to take hold of the ends of the earth, and the wrong be shaken out of it? It is changed like clay under a seal, and they stand out like a garment.
TS2009 - Job 38:12-14
The sun sheds its light on the earth like a cilinder seal projects its image on a clay tablet.
Earth's liquid outer core
Earth, out of which grows food, is turned underneath as by fire;
TS2009 - Job 28:5
The liquid moving outer core was only discovered by scientists like Andrija Mohorovicic and Beno Gutenberg in the 20th century. The Book of Job is ancient. Science only caught up with these scientific facts written in the Scriptures many centuries later.
For He draws up drops of water, which distil as rain from the mist, which the clouds drop down – pour down in showers on man.
TS2009 - Job 36:27-28
... who is calling for the waters of the sea and pours them out on the face of the earth – YHWH is His Name –
TS2009 - Amos 5:8b
All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea never overflows. To the place from which the rivers come, there they return again.
TS2009 - Ecclesiastes 1:7
If the clouds are filled with rain, they empty themselves upon the earth. ...
TS2009 - Ecclesiastes 11:3a
The water cycle was only proven by means of science many centuries later.
Life comes from life
Louis Pasteur once said...
Posterity will one day laugh at the foolishness of modern materialistic philosophers. The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator.
As opposed to what atheists and evolutionists preach and would like to believe, life does not come from nothing or from non-life. See Abiogenesis. Science shows that life only comes from [pre-existing] life. The most logical and scientific explanation for first life is a living intelligent agent. According to the Scriptures God, the greatest scientist of all time, created life (Genesis 1). This is of course in line with hardcore logic and science. But many people simply do not want to believe it and close their minds to this powerful fact. Hence for example atheism and the mindless religion called evolution.
Each according to its kind
According to Gregor Johann Mendel, known for Mendelian genetics...
It is willingly granted that by cultivation the origination of new varieties is favored, and that by man's labor many varieties are acquired which, under natural conditions, would be lost; but nothing justifies the assumption that the tendency to formation of varieties is so extraordinarily increased that the species speedily lose all stability, and their offspring diverge into an endless series of extremely variable forms. Were the change in the conditions the sole cause of variability we might expect that those cultivated plants which are grown for centuries under almost identical conditions would again attain constancy. This, as is well known, is not the case since it is precisely under such circumstances that not only the most varied but also the most variable forms are found.
All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another of fishes, and another of birds.
TS2009 - 1 Corinthians 15:39
The kinds are separate (Genesis 1). This is clearly evidenced by genetics. Common sense and hardcore observable science confirm it. No dog ever turned into a cat. All dogs descended from the wolf, they are all of the same kind. No magic macroevolution or other frog to prince fairytales allowed in reality. Dogs show variety within their own kind. Just like any other kind. Period.
According to Albert Einstein...
A theory is the more impressive the greater the simplicity of its premises, the more different kinds of things it relates, and the more extended its area of applicability. Therefore the deep impression that classical thermodynamics made upon me. It is the only physical theory of universal content which I am convinced will never be overthrown, within the framework of applicability of its basic concepts.
“You did found the earth of old, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. They shall perish, but You remain; And all of them grow old like a garment; You change them like a coat, And they are changed.” “But You are the same, And Your years have no end.
TS2009 - Psalms 102:25-27
The concept of entropy is a hardcore undeniable universal law which simply dictates that things don't become more advanced by themselves or by means of any natural laws, on the contrary.
Bible Gematria - Genesis 1:1
Although gematria can be a risky thing to base one's beliefs on, it can be used in support of the message of the Scriptures. I believe that it powerfully demonstrates that the Scriptures are divinely inspired. Of course the list of science confirming the Word of God goes on and on, but the point has been made. Nothing written in the Scriptures is scientifically disproven, on the contrary. Nothing in the original Hebrew and Greek Scriptures is proven to be untrue or contradicting by anybody. Too often people who are biased against God, not knowing God, try to pathetically discredit His Word dishonestly, by for example taking verses out of context or disingeniously ignoring other clarifying passages. Of course to no avail because that which is created can never exceed the Creator (Romans 9:20-21, 1 Corinthians 1:25, Isaiah 45:18-25, Job 33:12, etc...).
Archaeology has confirmed the historical accuracy of the Bible. It has verified many ancient sites, civilizations, and biblical characters whose existence was questioned by the academic world and often dismissed as myths.
Archaeology shows that the names and sites described in the Scriptures are accurate and existed. On this page I only mention some which I believe are crucial. Despite the limitations of archaeology it strongly supports the Scriptures. In fact, much of archaeological discovery is based on Scriptures because the Scriptures offer very detailed information about ancient sites and cities in the Middle East region. Many names of important people mentioned in the Scriptures were only discovered recently.
The existence of King David is confirmed by the Tel Dan stele and the Mesha Stele. The existence of Israel is confirmed by the Merneptah Stele and the Kurkh Monoliths.
Now some of the Jews thought that the destruction of Herod's army came from God, and that very justly, as a punishment of what he did against John, that was called the Baptist: for Herod slew him, who was a good man, and commanded the Jews to exercise virtue, both as to righteousness towards one another, and piety towards God, and so to come to baptism;

Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular. Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty; then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind .
Festus was now dead, and Albinus was but upon the road; so he assembled the sanhedrim of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others, [or, some of his companions]; and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he delivered them to be stoned:
Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was [the] Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day.
Solid extra-Scriptural historical evidence for the existence of the Messiah which corresponds to the Scriptural narrative.

Dead Sea Scrolls
Every Word of Eloah is tried; He is a shield to those taking refuge in Him. Do not add to His Words, Lest He reprove you, and you be found a liar.
TS2009 - Proverbs 30:5-6
Many thousands of written fragments have been discovered in the Dead Sea area. They represent the remnants of larger manuscripts damaged by natural causes or through human interference, with the vast majority only holding small scraps of text. However, a small number of well-preserved, almost intact manuscripts have survived... The texts have great historical, religious, and linguistic significance because they include the second-oldest known surviving manuscripts of works later included in the Hebrew Bible canon, along with deuterocanonical and extra-biblical manuscripts which preserve evidence of the diversity of religious thought in late Second Temple Judaism.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are generally dated from around 200 B.C. to A.D. 68. This is more than 1,000 years older than any manuscripts of the Hebrew Old Testament that we had before their discovery. Because of their age and close similarity with the Masoretic Text, we now have an objective basis for determining that the biblical text used in our modern copies of the Old Testament is accurate.
Despite the fact that they rank among the greatest archaeological finds of the past century, many people today still have no knowledge of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Dead Sea Scrolls prove the accuracy of the Scriptures. They also show that God did preserve the text as foretold (Psalms 12:6-7). The messianic prophecies foretold in the Old Testament were fulfilled, to the letter and in detail, in the New Testament. The fact that these scrolls are dated to well before the Messiah walked the earth proves that the Scriptures are inspired by God. They confirm the truth of His Word. The original texts are of course much older than these last surviving copies.
"As for Me, this is My covenant with them," said YHWH: "My Spirit that is upon you, and My Words that I have put in your mouth, shall not be withdrawn from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants' descendants," said YHWH, "from this time and forever."
TS2009 - Isaiah 59:21
The Isaiah Scroll ... is one of the seven Dead Sea Scrolls that were first recovered by Bedouin shepherds in 1947. The scroll is written in Hebrew and contains the entire Book of Isaiah from beginning to end, apart from a few small damaged portions. It is the oldest complete copy of the Book of Isaiah known, being 1100 years older than the Leningrad Codex, and the most complete scroll out of the 220 found at Qumran. Pieces of the Isaiah Scroll have been carbon-14 dated at least four times, giving calibrated date ranges between 356-103 BC.
The Isaiah scroll is dated to well before the Messiah walked the earth. All the prophecies concerning the Messiah were fulfilled to the letter. The Dead Sea Scrolls also show that the text as we know it from other manuscripts and our modern Bible versions was preserved accurately with time. On top of that they contain God's Name YHWH throughout.
The Words of YHWH are clean Words, Silver tried in a furnace of earth, Refined seven times. You guard them, O YHWH, You preserve them from this generation forever.
TS2009 - Psalms 12:6-7
The Great Psalms Scroll ... is the most substantial and well preserved Dead Sea Scrolls Psalms manuscript of the thirty-seven discovered in the Qumran caves... The primary body of the manuscript consists of "5 sheets of leather, still sewn together", and is 4.253 meters in length.
The Psalms scroll copy is dated to 1—68 CE. It uses the paleo-Hebrew script for the Name of God YHWH.
