Facts behind the bible stories:

Some people think that the stories are just myth, but there are facts behind these events.

Here we will explore some of these things:

The Star of Bethlehem

There is a lot of star and planet information for that period in history, could any of it be the Star of Bethlehem? Could it have been a conglomeration of planets that lead the Magi (Wise Men) to Bethlehem? 7 BC late May: First of 3 conjunctions (coming together) of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation Pisces (occurs only once every approximately 900 years other two in September and December)…

Is the Bible unscientific? View of the earth

Many would say that the Bible unscientific. What’s the Bible’s view of the earth? Space flight gives better insight into early verse in Genesis. During the creation in Genesis it tells us that God separated the light from the darkness. That is an interesting phrase because it implies that light and darkness, day and night are both present at the same time on the surface of the earth…

Does Genesis fail scientific study? Day 1 Part 1

Let’s take a look at the sequence of events in the Biblical account of the creation of the world and ask “Does Genesis fail scientific study?” Is there is any science behind it. God made the earth, firstly without any vegetation, or inhabitants. It was a sphere consisting of one huge ocean, presumably, spinning on its axis, in dark, empty space…

Scientific Genesis? Days 2 and 3 Part 2

Scientific Genesis? How does the Bible deal with the creation of the atmosphere and the appearance of the land. Before scientists told us all the facts about the earth’s atmosphere, we may never have realised how important this invisible stuff really is! We now know how hostile space is, therefore the earth’s atmosphere is incredibly important to our survival…

Is Genesis scientific? Day 4 Part 3

Now we come to Day 4 of Creation in the Bible, so Is Genesis scientific? But we come to the most illogical verses – for the human brain. God NOW saw it fit to mention the Sun, moon, planets, and stars AFTER light had appeared on day 1 of Creation! But everyone knows that the Sun provides us with energy, heat and light. Even the most uncivilised and backward tribes know that the Sun provides us with heat and light… 

Genesis and science Day 5 and 6 Part 4

When we look at Genesis and science does it stand up? There is a very important phrase that is repeated 10 times throughout the Creation account, and that is “according to their kinds”.
Plants, trees, water creatures, birds, land creatures, animals, livestock, everything was “according to their kinds” (according to their species).
God designed and made…

Why did the Ark ground on Mt Ararat?

Why Mt Ararat, why not a mountain much closer to the heart of a Jew and a mountain much closer to Israel?
It is generally recognised that Moses is the writer of Genesis.
So why did Moses put Mt Ararat as the place where the Ark became grounded – unless it was really true?…
