It is a common misconception among people and scientists that the Bible and science do not line up. It is a fact that the Bible and science do not contradict each other, but they support each other. They share a common ground and the truth is that scientists who reject God have to come up with other explanations of how we got here, etc. They then propose theories to make science fit their version of events.

Bible and Science — Are they in Conflict?
Do you know that neither science refutes the Bible, nor the Bible refutes science? These top 10 astounding scientific facts in the Bible prove that the Holy Scriptures and science coexist. Open your eyes to the amazing and irrefutable bible facts that would change your perspective about the Word of God.
Bible and Science — Science Confirms the Bible
The first book of the Bible was written about 3,500 years ago and the last book about 2,000 years ago. It includes the writings of over 40 individual authors from a wide variety of backgrounds, such as shepherds, kings, farmers, priests, poets, scribes, and fishermen. The Bible was written over more than 1,500 years, on three continents (Asia, Europe, and Africa). It contains law, history, law, psalms/songs, prophecies, stories, parables, and science. Yes! Bible contains science.
Bible and Science — Earth is a Sphere
Long before it was discovered by humans that the world was a sphere, the Holy Scriptures state that “as far as the east is from the west”(Psalm 103:12). Why not North and South? North and south run to exact points, the axis of the world, whereas east and west keep going forever, overlapping. Since they keep going away from each other, it shows an understanding of the earth being round.
Bible and Science — Animal Reproduction After its Kind
Another important scientific explanation in the bible is that every animal reproduced after its kind – tigers produce tigers, crocodiles produce crocodiles and humans produce humans, proving the bible right.
Bible and Science – Human Creation
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them (Genesis 1:26-27).
We need to believe that humans were created on the 6th day of creation as the Word of God says. The Holy Scriptures do have to be received and believed in faith. Both males and females bear God’s image. The reason why God made humans in His image is that they may rule over all the creatures in the world. Another important aspect of image-bearing is that all human life is sacred because they are made in the image of God (Genesis 9:5-6).
It is very difficult to understand how anyone can believe that the nervous system, particularly the brain, could have been produced by evolutionary randomness and selection. The complexity of the human brain has not been surpassed by anything humans have produced until now.
Many mathematical and probability calculations forcefully make evident the impossibility of biological evolution to produce the diversity and complexity of life.
We should look at science as proof of the bible and proof of the existence of God. It is not complicated, it just requires belief and faith. And once we’ve seen that, it’s just one more step to follow Christ.
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be condemned” (Mark 16:15,16).
