Science is slow in discovering truth, but in time it always proves the Bible is Scientifically accurate. More?

I'm looking for more scriptures which prove the Bible is scientifically accurate. Below are a few I obtained from another posters message. Do any of you have more?

The Earth is Round and suspended in space

Job 26:7,10 Prov 8:27, Isaiah 40:22, Amos 9:6

the Bible revealed the truth in 1000 B.C. 2500 years before man made a false estimated, and correctly discovered it for himself!

The Hydrologic Water Cycle

Ecclesiastes. 1:6-7, Ecclesiastes 11:3,Job 26:8, Amos 9:6

The water cycle was not fully understood until about 30 B.C. by a Roman engineer named Marcus Vitruvius.

Yet every aspect of the water cycle was fully revealed to mankind in 1600 B.C.! The Bible's description is in perfect harmony with modern science. Vitruvius was 1600 years too late!

Update:

The Hydrologic Water Cycle (cont.)

A. "He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight" (Job. 26:8, NIV).

B. "He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams; the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind" (Job. 36:27-28, NIV)

C. "The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again (Ecclesiastes 1:6-7, NIV).

The Nature of Health, Sanitation, and Sickness

The listing for this section is too large for this page. But the scriptural references are Leviticus 12-14.

Update 2:

The Concept of Entropy

"In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded" (Psalm 102:22-26, NIV).

The Stars are Innumerable

"He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars -- if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be" (Gen. 15:5, NIV).

The Existence of Valleys in the Seas

"The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at the rebuke of the LORD, at the blast of breath from his nostrils" (2 Sam. 22:16, NIV).

Update 3:

The Existence of Springs and Fountains in the Seas

"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month -- on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened" (Genesis 7:11, NIV). See also Gen. 8:2; Prov. 8:28.

The Existence of Water Paths (Ocean Currents) in the Seas

"O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!...When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,...You made him [man] ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet...the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas" (Psalm 8:1,3,6,8, NIV).

    I would try to find another issue to work on. I don't want to discourage you, you have done good. But the Bible was not intended to be compared with science. It is not a science book. Yes, in the last 175 years many things that were thought to be wrong in the Bible have been proved by science in many areas. However there are some things that science will never be able to prove. The real battle here is not in laboratory, but in the mind. If someone is an evolutionist, they will probably die as one. Helping someone change their worldview may be the better approach. However, most evolutionist do not know that they even have a worldview. They simply think they are educated and science savvy, which the text books teach is the smart way to be. They assume (nice word) they are already smarter than you. So, obviously you are wrong to begin with.

    I have been fortunate to have read a copy of the Bible compiled into a book in 1640. While it had some very interesting info and is very different from the edited versions available today it has very little in it that would be considered scientific. The Bible was never produced to be a scientific document. Your examples eg: Clouds, Thunder and Lightening and their descriptions you have given are not a scientific process for their existence. Do some educational research and see the correct reasons for their existence.

    1. Stop cutting and pasting without THINKING.

    2. The bible says the Earth is a circle (which is flat), not a sphere (which is round).

    3. The bible says a lot of other things too. Like there was once enough water on the Earth to drown everyone everywhere - but where did the water go? And that cows that see a striped stick will have striped calves - we know that's not true (and inspired Lysenkoism, which was embraced by Stalin wholeheartedly). And LOTS AND LOTS of other things that are not true in the least.

    4. Harry Potter says the sky is blue. Harry Potter must be entirely correct without flaw! Why aren't you worshiping him too?

    The Bible is an ancient book of fairy tales written by bronze-age men that were trying to explain the unknown and control the weak minded. It's probably the least scientific book ever written.

    Why don't you take a look at what the ancient Greek philosopher, Democritus, said about matter. He was correct. does that mean we have to drop the bible and start honoring the ancient Greek gods? Get over it!

    How about the big bit that says the world was created in 7 days 6000 years ago. That's about as accurate as you can get, only out on the date by something like 2,000,000%

    The Bible Tells of the Jet Stream too. (Its Either in Job or Proverbs, sorry, but I not a Bible Scholar.)

    Did you Know that there is a Little Bird, and when it gets Ready to Migrate, it flys along Way opposite of where it wants to go, so it can Catch the Wind Currents that are Flowing in the Direction of its Destination.

    It goes Backwards for a While, so it can go Foward to its Destination Quicker!

    Now, How does that Little Sucker Know This?

    Ha, ha, ha! Good one. Oh, wait, you are serious?

    You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that we are the ones that need help?

    Wow, that's amazing! Sorta like how no-one realised that Nostradamus was right until centuries after the events he predicted.

    Of cause, the bible will have something true. But don't forget, there are millions of lies behind the words.
