Does modern science discredit the Bible?

“Science” means “knowledge obtained from observation and arranged into a system.” Therefore, the scientific method, in its proper sense, can deal only with the processes of the world as they are directly observed. Science then, cannot explain prehistoric events, nor can it predict, with any certainty, future events. “Scientism” is what has been used to attack the Bible. Scientism, is not science! Scientism is a faith, a religious belief relating to the meaning of life, which attaches itself to science. The truth is, good science always confirms the Bible! From anthropology to zoology, the Bible, instead of being discredited by science, actually mentions principles, processes, and facts relating to every field of modern science. For example: the shape of the earth (Isaiah 40:22; Psalm 103:12), gravitation (Job 26:7), rock erosion (Job 14:18,19), an ice age (Job 38:29,30), the harmony of the universe (Jeremiah 31:35,36), the jet stream (Ecclesiastes 1:6), the uniqueness of man (Genesis 1:26), the chemical make up of the flesh (Genesis 2:7; 3:19), and the purpose of blood (Leviticus 17:11).
