Science in the Bible

In the class we are taking on Monday nights at the church building (Fishers of Men - the website is on my sidebar) one of the things that has interested me the most that I had not thought of before are all the scientific facts that are in the Bible and were written way before science discovered them. I thought you might find it interesting too. Here are some examples.
  • Both man and woman possess seed of life.
    • Science discovered: 19th Century
    • Bible Mentions: Gen 3:15, 22:18
  • There is a place void of stars in the North.
    • Science discovered: 19th Century
    • Bible Mentions: Job26:7
  • The earth is round.
    • Science discovered: 15th Century
    • Bible Mentions: Isaiah 40:22
  • Oceans have natural paths in them.
    • Science discovered: 1854
    • Bible Mentions: Psalm 8:8
  • Oceans contain fresh water springs.
