Psalms: Science and History

  1. "The righteous God trieth the hearts and reins."
    Jesus will search your kidneys 7:9

  2. "My reins also instruct me in the night seasons."
    The Psalmist's kidneys (reins) instruct him at night. 16:7

  3. The earth shakes whenever God really gets mad. 18:7

  4. "The foundations of the world were discovered ... at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils." (The earth is set on firm foundations and does not move -- unless God blows his nose.) 18:15

  5. The sun moves around the earth. 19:4-6

  6. "Try my reins and my heart."
    Jesus will search your kidneys 26:2

  7. "He maketh them also to skip ... like a young unicorn." 29:6

  8. From his seat in heaven, God can see the whole earth and all its inhabitants.
    (He sits directly above the earth, which is a flat disc below him.) 33:14-15

  9. Diseases are sent by God to punish sin. 38:3

  10. "Thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons." 44:19

  11. "I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. ... The world is mine, and the fulness thereof."
    God takes credit for the entire creation. Preadators, prey, parasite, and host: God purposefully designed them all. 50:11-12

  12. According to the psalmist, snails melt. But they don't, of course, they simply leave a slimy trail as they move along. 58:8

  13. "The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God." 68:8

  14. "I was pricked in my reins."
    ("Reins" means kidneys in the Bible.) 73:21

  15. God is so strong that he can break the head of dragons and of leviathan. 74:13-14

  16. "Thou has set all the borders of the earth"
    A spherical earth has no borders. 74:17

  17. God holds the earth up with pillars. 75:3

  18. "He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea."
    See Numbers 11:20-32, where God sends quails to feed the Israelites until it literally came out their noses. 78:27

  19. Another reference to "the foundations of the earth", implying that the earth is fixed and does not move. 82:5

  20. "I will make mention of Rahab"
    Rahab is a sea-demon or dragon from ancient Jewish folklore. 87:4

  21. "Thou hast broken Rahab [the sea monster] in pieces." 89:10

  22. "The dragon shalt thou trample under feet." 91:13

  23. "The world also is established, that it cannot be moved." 93:1

  24. "The world also shall be established that it shall not be moved." 96:10

  25. "The Lord ... who healeth all thy diseases." God heals all diseases. Medical science is unnecessary. 103:2-3

  26. "God ... who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain" (The earth is stationary and does not orbit the sun.) 104:5

  27. "The waters stood above the mountains."
    Noah's flood covered the highest mountains, just like it says in Genesis 7:20. 104:6-7

  28. God gives the lions their meat. The cruelty and brutality of nature are all part of God's plan. 104:21

  29. "In wisdom hast thou made them all." (God purposely designed the brutality and cruelty of nature.) 104:24

  30. God is offended by those who make things with their hands or invent things with their minds. 106:39

  31. "God ... turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters." 114:7-8

  32. "The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works." Then why do nearly all animals die painful deaths from starvation, predation, or disease long before they reach adulthood? 145:9

  33. God "satisfiest the desire of every living thing." But in nature few needs are met and few desires are satisfied. Life is short, hard, cruel, and painful for nearly every living thing. 145:17

  34. "He calleth them all by their names."
    God knows how many stars there are and knows them all by name. That's pretty impressive since there are 100 billion or so galaxies, each containing about 100 billion stars. 147:7

  35. Even the dragons praise the Lord. 148:7

  36. "Praise him in the firmament of his power." 150:1
