This is my Top 10 list of the many scientific principles found in the Bible that could only have been known by God-given inspiration. Many of these facts were not discovered until centuries later. Some of these seem incredibly obvious to us now, but in those days, they were far beyond the knowledge of that time.
|The Earth is round (Isa 40:22)||The Earth was thought to be flat.|

|Day in one part of the world and night in another (Lk 17:34-36)||It was believed everyone had day and night at the same time.|

|Washing with "running water" (Lev 15:13)||For disease prevention, "running" water was a key thing. For thousands of years after, many people washed their hands in water-filled basins which passed on diseases.|
|Unclean foods (Lev 11)||The foods God called unclean all have negative health benefits. Many of the unclean animals were scavengers|
