wow, what hilarious links.  Let’s look at that first link.  It claims to have seven whole discoveries that prove the bible.  Hmmm, the first one claims that the discover of gravity proved the bible. Hilarious since the bible says nothing about gravity at all.  It claims that the earth is hanging in space and that there are pillars supporting it.  More lies from Christians who want to claim that their magic decoder ring is the only “right” interpretation source.  There is nothing about gravity and orbits that indicating anything is hanging on “nothing”. 

Oh number 2 is even better. The poor things claim that since there are black smokers in the oceans, this means that the bible’s claim “ 11 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. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.’ must. be true.  What’s great about his is that we have no idea what “great deep” means, though one indeed could assume the oceans.  Pity that there is no evidence at all for any rain happening for 40 days and 40 nights or any global flood or any massive break up of any “fountains” under the oceans, or any voids that this water could have come from.  I love how this whole article uses citations from other creationist claims which have no evidence to support them at all, for instance the claim “"There is probably as much water circulating under the sea floor as there is in the oceans above.” well, the citation is “Creation Corner article "Evolution and Humans are just Animals". Wow,how could I ever doubt basless nonsense!

This next one needs to be quoted directly “Biblical Scientific Fact #3 Are no NEW cells created?”  More attempts to claim that since we haven’t been able to create cells, poof!  that means that only the Christian god can.   The god of the gaps argument and the ignorant attempt to claim that their god is the only one.  Funny how Christians also claimed that only god could heal people but now humans can. 

#4 is an oldie but goodie.  The poor Christians try to claim that since we’ve found some of the cities mentioned in the bible, why that means that their god exists!  Golly, since we know that Athens exists, that must mean that Athena and Posiedon exist too since the myths of that religion also mentioned real cities and people.  Pity that they can’t find actual evidence of the important events of the bible e.g. the “exodus”, the supposedly great cities and temples of David and Solomon, etc. 

#5 is the claim that the bible’s authors knew about wind currents.  Why yes they did and so did the Sumerians, the Chinese, Polynesians, etc, and all without any information from a Judeo Chrisitan god at all.  It’s not hard to figure out that the wind moves in predictable patterns.  Or do Christians think that people can’t figure such things out?  The other problem with this claim is that it’s in with some other ridiculous things that the Christians ignore.  For instance the verse right abouve the one they claim is some divine information says “5 The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises.”  A lovely bit of evidence that the authors of the bible thought the sun circled the earth.  It doesn’t at all.  Or how about this one “Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever.” a big fail on that one too.  Physics indicates that it likely will be gone in about 5 billion years when the sun expands and destroys it.  This is always a good one: “For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.”  Pity that Christians give their beliefs lip service but when push comes to shove they use all of that bad ol’ wisdom and knowledge to make their lives easier. 

#6 claims that the bible knew what matter was made out of.  Their versical proof? Isaiah 40:12 Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, and are counted as the small dust on the scales. Look, He (God) lifts up the isles as a very little thing." - KJV  The NIV has it this way: Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.” 
oh darn, they can’t even get their verses right.  You see, it’s actually Isaiah 40:15, not 12.  Silly people.  So we have a verse that says that nations are little to god, and are dust, and this god can lift up islands as little things.  From this, these Christians get that they can’t possibly take this as literal and “there’s a lot of empty space in matter”.  ROFL. that right there has to be one of the most utterly dishonest and hilarious Christian claims ever.  this is just more figurative language, yep we can see the word “like” and “as” there, and this is just more sycophantic sucking up to God by declaring well, the context will tell you that: 15Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.  16And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.  17All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity. 18To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?”

And we finish up with #7, the shape of the earth.  I always love this one since it takes so much dishonesty and ignorance of the bible.  It’s the same moronic claim that the bible’s claim that the earth is a circle must mean it’s a sphere.  No, it doesn’t.  The word for circule is not the word for sphere.  The authors of the bible knew what spheres were.  It’s a shame that Christians are so desperate to claim that they did not and evidently too ignorant to use their own words correctly.  The bible goes on to support the idea that the authors were only familiar with a flat earth by claiming that the earth was formed like clay under a seal e.g. flattened out; that one could see all of the earth from a mountain, impossible on a sphere; that one could grasp the edges of the earth and shake it like a sheet; that to measure the earth one only has to measure “across” it rather than “around” it; and that it rests on pillars.  I know, coink, you’ll try to claim metaphor, etc, but that is a problem for you when it coems to other ridiculous claims that you are sure are literal.
