      The Spherical Shape of the Earth - "He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in" (Isaiah 40:22).
      The Earth is suspended in nothing - "He spreads out the northern [skies] over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing" (Job 26:7).

      The Stars are Innumerable - "He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars -- if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be" (Genesis 15:5).

      The Existence of Valleys in the Seas - "The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at the rebuke of the LORD, at the blast of breath from his nostrils" (2 Samuel 22:16).

      The Existence of Springs and Fountains in the Seas - "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month -- on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened" (Genesis 7:11). See also Gen. 8:2; Prov. 8:28.

      The Existence of Water Paths (Ocean Currents) in the Seas - "O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!...When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,...You made him [man] ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet...the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas" (Psalm 8:1,3,6,8).

      The Concept of Entropy - "In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded" (Psalm 102:25-26).

TONS more DEEP science from the Bible:

A lot of these are free to listen to. Check out "Scientific Data Supporting Creation".

Excellent post ChristianZionist!

Unfortunately, Jeffguy, most, if not all, of those speakers compromise the Genesis account of a six-literal day Creation so they can bring it in line with the discredited billions-of-years big-bang theory of modern science. Reinterpreting Torah to fit the dogmas of secular scientists they play fast and loose with the language, spiritualizing the literal and appealing to other 'authorities' fanciful speculations in place of what God has clearly written.

In addition to the ones listed above, my favorite true science proof of the Bible's divine origin, and a lesson that we should take it literally, is the following -- and it thrills me every time I think about it . . .

Nineteenth century atheistic scientist-philiosopher, Herbert Spencer, after a lifetime of study, announced he had discovered that everything in the Universe may be fit into one of five categories: Time, Force, Action, Space and Matter.

Think about it - it's true! Anything you can think of will fit into one of those five categories.

Naturally the world hailed him for this brilliant intellectual and scientific discovery. Great crowning achievement!

What neither he nor the world knew though, was that God had revealed the same thing to Moses, and Moses told it to us, thousands of years earlier, in the very first verse of the Bible!

"In the beginning" - Time

"God" - Force

"Created" - Action

"The Heavens" - Space

"And the earth." - Matter

The Bible IS scientifically accurate -- when you believe it and interpret it literally!

I disagree with the second part of your conclusion (with respect
to the story of creation).

Of course, HaShem could have created the world in six literal days,
and artificially plant objects that looked like dinosaur bones just to
confuse us and try our faith.  But why would He do that?

Instead of discrediting science and the scientific method, we can
use it to better understand Creation.  After all, scientists, who for
the most part are atheists, independently arrived at the Big Bang
theory, which is their version of "Let there be Light."

I think that the "days" in the story of creation are not literal, and
that the mention of "Taninim HaGdolim" ("the big alligators") was
an allusion to dinosaurs (ancient Hebrew did not have a separate
word for "dinosaur", and "big alligator" was the best approximation
Moshe Rabeinu could come up with).

Anyway, that's my opinion.

BTW, I disagree with the description of the forum's topic.  The
Jewish Idea is not Rabbi Kahane's idea.  It is the authentic truth
and original spirit of the Torah, that has been forgotten with
time (as was predicted by our rabbis), but that was revived and
rekindled by Rabbi Kahane.  The copyright (so to speak) for the
Jewish Idea does not belong to Rabbi Kahane---it belongs to
HaShem.  But Rabbi Kahane is credited with rediscovering the
lost truth and reminding us about it.

Sadly, there are still Jews who, despite learning about the Jewish
Idea, reject it and continue to practice phony, Galut Judaism,
even in Israel, and we all know who those Jews are.

Please elaborate on this. I'm not sure of what point you are making.
