In 1861, the French Academy of Science published a brochure of fifty-one “scientific facts” that supposedly disproved the Bible. The brochure was used by the atheists of the day to ridicule Christians. Today, however, all fifty-one of these “facts” have been proven false by modern-day science. Once again, true science has confirmed rather than contradicted the truth of the Scripture.
Although the Bible was not written to be a science book, every scientific statement it makes is accurate and true. In time, its teachings are always verified by true science. Far from being at enmity with the Bible, true science is always a source of additional evidence for the Bible’s reliability.
