Is the creation account scientific or just plain myth? Is their scientific facts about creation? To answer these questions we must go to the Bible. The Holy Bible, is God’s revelation to man even though it is not a science book, it has scientific facts nonetheless. Especially in the Book of Genesis, the very first book of the Bible.
We know the Earth can sustain life, unlike the other planets in our solar system. The Earth was designed for biological life (Isaiah 45:18). According to Scripture the Earth has abundant water (Genesis 1:2), and an atmosphere (Genesis 1:6-8), to sustain life.
We know there is all kinds of biological life on this planet. There was life in the past and is here now today! We know that dinosaurs once roamed the planet which are extinct now. The Bible states that God created life according to “kinds” (Genesis 1:24). The fact that God distinguishes kinds, agrees with what scientists observe, namely that there are horizontal genetic boundaries beyond which life cannot vary. Life produces after its own kind. Dogs produce dogs, cats produce cats. We have never seen a dog/cat hybrid in nature. Never have we witnessed one kind changing into another kind. It is not just there! There are truly natural limits to biological change.
We know that the Earth is a sphere and not flat. There is people who believe the Earth is flat (Flat Earth Society). But the Bible has told us the Earth is spherical (Isaiah 40:22). Just look at the satellite photos of Earth.
We know the Earth travels around the sun and not the sun around the Earth. The sun is the center of our solar system (heliocentric) but not the center of the universe. The Earth is the center of the universe (geocentric), because it was the first celestial body created in the universe according to Scripture. “In the Beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
We know that the stars in space are unique. The Hubble Space Telescope has given us marvelous pictures of stars. The Bible declared that each star varies in size and intensity (I Corinthians 15:41). This was told centuries before the advent of the telescope by Galileo. God created the stars along with the sun, moon and the other planets on day four of creation (Genesis 1:14-19). The vastness of space is mind boggling! The millions of galaxies discovered, each with their own stars is so awesome. Just looking at the Orion constellation in the winter sky is amazing. Orion is mentioned in Scripture (Job 38:31). One of the stars of Orion is called Betelgeuse, a red giant star that has a diameter so great that if it were our sun it would reach the orbit of Jupiter.
We know that science means “knowledge”, and true science always agrees with the observable evidence. Science confirms the Bible (Colossians 2:3). Scientific research continues to unfold the wonders and mysteries of our universe. Creation proves these scientific facts. the Bible is truly the inspired Word of the Creator.
