The Bible on Science

Just remember. The following facts were written a range of approximately 3,500 years to 2,000 years ago. The problem is not the Bible’s inaccuracy but man’s misunderstandings of the Bible. Honestly, science is just playing catch-up. How could 39+ authors, spread over a 1,500 year period of authorship, get all these facts right? If ever there is a proof for the existence of God, it would be the Bible’s scientific accuracy.
