One of the things we see in the Bible are scientific facts presented long before they were discovered by man. This would make perfect sense, since the Bible is the inspired Word of God. God the Creator knew all these things before we did because He created the universe!...
God said to Abraham 'Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.' And He said to him, 'So shall your descendants be.'(Gen 15:5)". And through the prophet Jeremiah, 'As the host of heaven (stars) cannot be numbered, nor the sand of the sea measured, so will I multiply the descendants of David My servant (Jeremiah 33:22). And finally, in the New Testament "Therefore from one man, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore. (Hebrews 11:12)"Before the invention of the telescope in 1608, scientists throughout history, including the famous astronomer Ptolemy (150 AD), taught that the total number of stars in the heavens was under 3000. On a clear night the naked eye can only count about 1000 stars. However, because of telescopes such as the Hubble, we now know there are countless billions upon billions of stars in the universe - just as God had revealed to us several thousand years ago through the Bible.
