Are Christians behind the scientific curve?

You might have heard at some point that Christians are closed minded and behind the times when it comes to advances in science and knowledge. The truth is, the Bible has always known how the universe works. It is science that is catching up to the knowledge of the Bible, not the other way around. The next time the secular scientific community comes out with some new “theory” about how something works and it contradicts the Bible, don’t worry. A newer theory will replace it soon enough, and eventually they will come to agree with what the Bible has already been saying for thousands of years.  There’s a pattern to how this works…

Creation is made of invisible elements (Job 26:7) Science was ignorant of the atomic level activity Creation is made of invisible elements (atoms)

Winds blow in cyclones   (Ecc. 1:6) Winds blow straight Winds blow in cyclones
Blood is the source of life and health (Lev. 17:11) Sick people must be bled Blood is the source of life and health
The ocean floor contains deep valleys and mountains (2 Sam. 22:16; Jonah 2:6) The ocean floor is flat The ocean floor contains deep valleys and mountains
When dealing with disease, hands should be washed under running water (Lev. 15:13) Hands washed in still water Hands should be washed under running water
There are innumerable stars (Jer. 33:22) There are only 1,100 stars There are innumerable stars
Air has weight (Job 28:25) Air is weightless Air has weight
The ocean contains springs  (Job 38:16) The ocean only is fed by rivers and streams There are deep sea springs
