Item description for Scientific Facts in the Bible:
100 Reasons to Believe the Bible by Ray Comfort...
If the Bible proves itself to be the Word of the One who created all things, doesn't it make sense to search its pages? If there is a one-in-a-million chance that the Bible's promise of immortality and the avoidance of eternal damnation is true, we owe it to our common sense to take a look. Here Ray Comfort offers 100 reasons to believe the Bible is supernatural in origin. Book Description An elderly lady once left $20,000 and "my Bible and all it contains" to her nephew. The young man knew what the Bible contained so he didn't bother to open it. He merely picked it up and put it on a high shelf in his house, and headed for Las Vegas.
It wasn't long until all his money was gone. He lived the next 60 years as a pauper, scraping for every meal and barely having the clothes on his back.
As he was moving to a convalescent home he reached up to grab that old Bible and accidentally dropped it from his trembling hands. It fell to the floor and opened, revealing a $100 bill between every page.
That man lived his life as a pauper when he could have lived in luxury, simply because of his prejudice. He thought he knew what the Bible contained.
Most people don't know that the Bible contains a wealth of incredible scientific, medical and prophetic facts. The implications are mind boggling...

100 Reasons to Believe the Bible?
Incredibly stupid book! Nov 16, 2006
This is the silliest, goofiest book I have read in a long time. There is no gentle way to say this: the author is a man of exceedingly modest intellectual capacity. He does not understand evolution. He does not understand science. He has an idiosyncratic understanding of the Bible that one can only marvel at - or else heartily laugh at!
If his intended audience was kindergarten classes, then he has been successful.
Here are some examples of the Bible's science:
Evidence of atoms: "things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." Hebrews 11:3
Radio waves: "Can you send lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, Here we are?" Job 38:35
Job 38:19 "Where is the way where light dwells?" This implies electromagnetic radiation and light travelling at 186,000 mpsecond.
By talking of heavens & "highest heavens", the Bible was explaining galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
"...neither shall you eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field..." Exodus 22:31 He hails this as insight into bacterial contamination!
He quotes a lot of notable people on their biblical faith - but most are centuries dead and not a few are taken out of context (e.g. Einstein who clearly stated his "God" was not the Christian God). His section on archeology is a farce - or state of the art for the 17th century if you prefer. His discussion of evolution is so warped as to make one wonder if he has EVER bothered reading even a high school biology textbook.
I don't think any reasonable, rational, semi-conscious Christian can take much "comfort" in this embarrassing book. I went to Comfort's web site to get further insight and I came away thinking this is a man with a GIANT ego and he has absolutely no basis for his self-congratulatory egotism.
This book is useless, except for chuckles.
Well written and fun to read. Aug 10, 2006
Do I believe this book was a little bit biased? Yes, I do but, generally speaking, it was full of great information. I am educating myself on the Evolution Theory and the more I study it, the more I see that it makes much more sense to believe in a Creator than to believe in chance. If natural selection is true, then in order to select, it must have some kind of programming, if you will, to let it know which species were weak and deserved to be extinct and which ones were strong and deserved to exist. Just a few of the 100 Reasons to Believe the Bible is Supernatural in Origin were not convincing to me at all. I would say, less than 10 of the 100 reasons Ray Comfort gave were not too convincing, but overall, the book is worth reading. Good reference for those in a hurry. I highly recommend this book.
This is a Awesome Book... Jul 16, 2006
This book has opened my eyes. It is full of truthful facts that I never knew was in the bible. It is a must for everybody to read. And to comment on what E. Lores said; I think you need to open your eyes b/c everything in that book clearly comes right out of the bible... I think you need to make sure that you know what your saying before you open up your big mouth...
Not as good as it sounds Jan 19, 2005
This book is fun to read, yes, no question about that, the problem are the facts inside.
In the first pages I found the first error. I continued, but without knowing if what I was reading was true. For example, Mr. Comfort, in page 12, states: "It was another 2000 years later (at a time when science believed that the earth was flat) that the scriptures inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world." Well, the problem is that, first, Columbus wasn't inspired by scriptures and, second, in those times people didn't believe that the earth was flat.
I am a Christian, and I'm very disappointed. Mr. Comfort's efforts to find evidence of modern science, modern hygiene and even dinosaurs in the Bible are simply unbelievable, and many times feels forced. He even quotes famous people on the Bible, I mean, if Napoleon said anything good about the Bible, that is a proof of is supernatural origin? He founds what his eyes want to find, he understands what he wants to understand... The worst is that he sees things that are not there and compares it to data that is wrong... The result is a fun but messy book.
Don't believe the lies; The Bible is Truth and here's proof! Nov 15, 2002
[Cool, first review!]
This is chock full of scientific facts, historical evidence, and world-leader quotes all related to the Bible.
Don't believe it is God's word? Think it is out of date? Just because its cover is dusty in your home doesn't mean its contents are no longer applicable. This short little book is a good addition to an evangelizing believer, and will give the skeptic and critic something challenging to consider.
And for a dose of eye-opening facts that is like 100x as powerful as this, check out Ray Comfort's highly praised "The Evidence Bible" - ...
May you seek truth and seek the One who is the Giver of that truth.
