The simple switch: Consider His wisdom, not your own.
Recently I engaged in a debate with a long time acquaintance of over the topic of evolution in the Bible. He believes that because of the Earth and the universes age, there must have been more time in the creation account than what we are told in Genesis 1. In his recent correspondence in response to my answers he made a connection to the effect of: science knew it before the Bible knew it. He used an example from Revelation when John stated “the four corners of the earth” (7:1; 12:8) to show that before science proved that the earth was a sphere the Bible says that it was flat. Now I know there many ways to show that this was not what John is saying here but I want to just focus on this idea of when the Bible knew something opposed to when science finally “proved” it.
