1 2 Peter 1:19-21 Reasons

2 1. Unity 1. Unity of writers

3 A. Microbiology  Dietary laws  Avoid consuming birds of prey (Lev. 11:13-19)  Avoid eating swine (Deut. 14:8)  Known today that undercooked pork causes trichinosis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trichinosis)

4 Strict sanitary and hygienic laws—about 3300 years before germs were discovered!  Safeguards against the disease of human waste (Deut. 23:12-14)  Safeguards against germs on earthen vessels (Lev. 6:28)  Safeguards against germs from dead carcasses (Lev. 11:31-35, 39, 40)  Commands for cleanliness (Ex. 19:10; 29:4; etc.)  Sanitary measures for what was taken in battle (Num. 31:21-24)

5 “The history of wars fought prior to AD 1900 reveals that, typically, five times as many soldiers died of disease than from wounds sustained on the battlefield…Prior to the medical advances of the past 130 years, doctors did not know germs from human and animal waste caused infections that number among the greatest dangers to humanity” (Jeffrey, Grant R., 2010, “The Signature of God, Revised Edition: Conclusive Proof That Every Teaching, Every Command, Every Promise In The Bible Is True.” pp. 139, 140)

6 “He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised, every male child in your generations, he who is born in your house or bought with money from any foreigner who is not your descendant” (Gen. 17:12) Hendrick Dam (Ph.D in Biochemistry) discovered vitamin K in 1935 A factor in foods that helped prevent hemorrhaging in baby chicks

7 A. Microbiology B. Space Science

8 “Is this Ken Ham? …As for the Job quote, there are no foundations of the earth and the earth is not suspended in any way. The Bible was wrong about that and wrong about a lot of other matters of scientific concern. It has spiritual truths which can't be touched by science, but it was written in a scientifically illiterate time. We've advanced since then and have learned how to investigate God's creation with the rational brains bestowed us. Thus the great question …can Truth contradict Truth. You seem to think so as you don't acknowledge the evidence for an old earth. I really don't have much point except to amuse myself at this time as I know I am talking to a young earth creationist. I read most of the publications out of the Institute for Creation Research, so I'm very aware of the mental gymnastics you guys are capable of to fit a square peg into a round hole…” (exchange with cshorey, Disqus Digest, ibtimes.com)

9 Fitting millions of years in six days of the creation week (Gen. 1) Claiming that from absolute nothing came something absolutely Claiming non-living material spawned life Claiming order, design, life, complexity, intelligence memory, and emotion evolved from a big bang Claiming Job 38:4 affirms the earth is resting upon physical foundations Human Ideas TRUTH

10 Earth as a rotating circular sphere on nothing  “He hangs the earth on nothing…” (Job 26:7)  “It is He who sits above the circle of the earth” (Is. 40:22)  “He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters” (Job. 26:10)  Rotational, Luke 17:31-36 Not a disk Spherical

11 A. Microbiology B. Space Science C. Earth Science

12  Oceanography (Matthew Fountaine Maury, )  The discovery of the paths of the sea from Psalms 8:8, “The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas.”  The Earth’s Water Cycle

13 Earth’s Water Cycle  When was the Earth’s water cycle first discovered? “According to historians, the water cycle was discovered slowly over a period of painstaking years. However, Bernard Palissy is credited in the 16th century to be the scientist who compiled the theories that existed for years and ‘wrote’ our modern hydrological cycle. (http://www.iwaponline.com/ws/00701/0023/ pdf) But much to the surprise of others, according to documents that date back to before the Common Era (thousands of years), knowledge of the water cycle existed then. These documents are found in the manuscripts of the Bible…” (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/When_was_the_water_cycle_discovered)

14 Earth’s Water Cycle:  H2O is the fundamental ingredient for life on earth  3% is freshwater Job 36:27, 28, “ 27 For He draws up drops of water, Which distill as rain from the mist, 28 Which the clouds drop down And pour abundantly on man.” Wikimedia Commons

15 Earth’s Water Cycle:  How could Job & Solomon know?  How could such a system evolve? Ecclesiastes 1:7, “All the rivers run into the sea, Yet the sea is not full; To the place from which the rivers come, There they return again” Wikimedia Commons

17  Hear – “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” (Mt. 17:5)  Believe – “…for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins” (Jn. 8:24)  Confess – “Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God” (Lk. 12:8)  Repent – “…unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Lk. 13:3)  Be baptized – “…Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…” (Acts 2:38)
