3 Scientific Discoveries That Were Already Stated In The Bible


Isn’t it intersting that researchers and scientists work round the clock and maybe round the centuries investing millions of dollars and resources in an attempt to find out facts that have been established in the Bible already? Well, let’s show you a few of these.

Stumbled on an article on that revealed some of these…

Men wrote the scriptures under the inspiration of God. Since men did not even scientifically discover these facts until hundreds or thousands of years later, these facts written down in the scriptures could not have come from the minds of men at the time they were written!

Therefore, men had to have been inspired by God to write these facts since they did not know them as facts at the time. One of these is that the earth’s shape is round. Another is the fact that man’s physical life has an upper limit of one hundred and twenty years, and yet another is the existence of mountains at the bottom of the sea.

  1. Human Longevity

human-longevitySometime around 1976-1980 I was listening to the news while driving home from work. It was announced that a government funded group of scientists had concluded that humans can live to a maximum age of one hundred and twenty years. Around that age the process which causes body cells to reproduce stops, and the body then dies.

I bolted up out of my sleep that night as it suddenly occurred to me where I had read that information before. It was in the book of Genesis in the Bible. These scientists had been paid to discover something that was known three thousand years ago:

And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years. (Genesis 6:3)

Incredibly, the scientists verified the same identical number of one hundred and twenty years. Chapter 19, Human Longevity, illustrates how this was accomplished. Source:


  1. The earth is round

Americans are taught that Christopher Columbus discovered the earth was round. However, did someone know that fact thousands of years before Columbus sailed? See Summary of Evidence of A Spherical Earth



Remember this verse of the Bible?

It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth… (Isaiah 40:22)

These verses which relate facts that man in all his wisdom only discovered many years later, lend credence that the scriptures are truly the inspired words of God. That is, the Bible contains facts which mankind only discovered thousands of years after they were written down in the scriptures.


  1. Thousands of Mountains at the oceans floor

In October 2014, BBC published a new update by US-European research team of the clearest view yet of the shape of the ocean floor revealed by a satellite’s gravity data, showing proof that there are thousands of mountains at the ocean’s bottom.

BBC — It is not every day you can announce the discovery of thousands of new mountains on Earth, but that is what a US-European research team has done.

What is more, these peaks are all at least 1.5km high.

The reason they have gone unrecognised until now is because they are at the bottom of the ocean.

Dave Sandwell and colleagues used radar satellites to discern the mountains’ presence under water and report their findings in Science Magazine. Read more HERE.

However, the Bible has proven this fact thousands of years ago. There are mountains on the bottom of the ocean floor (Jonah 2: 5-6)

The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.

I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.

Only in the last century have we discovered that there are towering mountains and deep trenches in the depth of the sea.

Some claim to have studied the scriptures for years, yet have not detected these simple truths. This proves the following scripture to be true:

And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. (Daniel 12:9)
