No. The fact that scriptures get one fact about science right hardly proves scripture omniscient. The Bible makes some observations about nature that are not wrong. Generally they reflect an understanding of nature that is consistent with what humans understood about nature at the time the various books of the Bible were written. Thus there are observations that are consistent with the Earth being flat and the sun going around it. There is the famous sun standing still reference for example. There ARE references to plant and animal life that reflect accurate understanding of of biology to the degree one would expect from a people who practiced agriculture and animal husbandry 3000 years ago.bluethread wrote: Based on the concept of omniscience, many claim the plain language of the Scriptures should be scientifically accurate. So, if there were a verse that said that the Sun is the center of the solar system, would that make it acceptable on that basis?
More to the point, there is nothing in the Bible that suggests the writers understood the Earth revolved around the Sun. But let us suppose the Bible DID reference a heliocentric system. So what? Men figured that out all by themselves as early as the 3rd century BCE.
Now, IF there was something in Bible that described the double helix structure of the DNA molecule and explained its relationship to the impregnation of Mary and the divine origin of Jesus, THAT would be impressive. Can you point to a passage in scripture that demonstrates knowledge that would seem impossible for a man of those times to know?
There ARE many passages in scripture that demonstrate various writers got facts about nature completely wrong however.
