A Biblical Universe
2 Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is God breathed and useful for teaching...."Arguably (not to me), this is the most important phrase in the Bible, both for the believer and nonbeliever. For the believer, it is the comfort of having a source of absolute truth. As an implicit challenge to the nonbeliever – find anything untrue, render God a liar, and cast doubt on all of the Bible – if it had occurred, I’m sure it would have made the cover of Time magazine !
( Homocentrism: the inability to accept the possiblity of being accountable to the Creator.)
"In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but your remain; they will all wear out like a garment..."These sound like the second law of thermodynamics !
This sounds like the first law of thermodynamics ! It's God's nature, too - he created it, along with the metaphysical world. Only man in his arrogance, or evolutionary blindness, would name, what he has used science to discover and/or understand, after himself !
This is the teleological argument for the existence of God i.e. why would an intelligent designer create organs with no, partially functional purpose. How did species evolve from one to two eyes? When did depth perception, in the evolutionary scheme, become important ?
More remarkable than His creation, is the fact that, in spite of the free will He gave to man, He holds the universe together in a way that follows His plan !

Job 40, 41 - Dinosaurs and dragonsBehemoth – from the description, clearly not a hippo, as some commentators suggest. It was able to stand in the Jordan river at flood stage, “…his tail sways like a cedar, he ranks first among the works of God “ – a brontosaurus, ultrasaurus, etc.
Leviathan – a flying dinosaur (ample fossil evidence) that was fire breathing, again clearly not the crocodile some suggest. Simply reroute the soft tissue (won’t fossilize) of the GI tract from the traditional anal, to an oral exit (phew !), provide a spark source to ignite the methane (like the sparking beetle of today) et voila !
