I’ve recently been questioned by a friendly skeptic about the validity of the Bible, and whether or not King David had a primitive understanding of science, that was not God inspired-
In Psalms 148:4, David makes a rather strange claim- “Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.”
Does he believe a sea is above the sky? I’ve heard enough atheist propaganda to know there’s many lies blindly believed and dogmatically asserted by the atheist community without fact checking (not the one which asked the question)
So I did some research, and this is what I found-
An article which is titled “astronomers find largest, most distant reservoir of water”, the article quotes-
“Two teams of astronomers have discovered the largest and farthest reservoir of water ever detected in the universe. The water, equivalent to 140 trillion times all the water in the world’s ocean, surrounds a huge, feeding black hole, called a quasar, more than 12 billion light-years away”- nasa.gov
This is phenomenal, but maybe David guessed correctly? It’s an option.. But let’s remember, this is the man that prophesied the crucifixion of the messiah, from the words he said, to the torture method used (600 years before it was invented) to the most insignificant detail of casting lots on his garment 1,000 years before Jesus walked the earth…
Without closing our minds to supernatural possibilities; it’s evident David was divinely inspired.
And if we get nothing else from this post, we know that at the very least; David’s statement is true.
