The Bible is the basis for all science. Consider the Biblical account of the creation of Eve.
Genesis 2:21 -22 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he
slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the LORD God had
taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. (ESV)
This is an interesting scripture. Adam was formed first from the earth, then Eve was made from
I recently read an article of a man who was in a serious automobile accident; he lived, but
required many reconstruction surgeries on his face and cranium. He noticed that the doctor
was using rib material for the reconstruction, and it appeared that the doctor kept using the
same rib. Before one surgery the man asked the doctor when would he have to start using a
different rib. The surgeon told him that it wouldn’t be necessary since
human ribs regenerate.
This seemed amazing, so I checked it out. It is true, PubMedID: 7332200 documents 12
patients that were subject to cranioplasty surgery using their human ribs to rebuild cranium
bone damage. Forty-two pieces of rib, average length 13 cm were removed to rebuild the
cranium. All 12 patients “had solid protection of the brain” and “complete regeneration of
the donor rib.”
The rib is the only human bone that regenerates. Isn’t it lucky the Bible
picked the right bone. No, actually, it wasn’t luck, God designed it that way and the Bible is the
Word of God.
The fact that the rib regenerates supports another scripture:
Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And
the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (KJV)
If Adam would have had a missing rib, the creation wouldn’t be “very good,” it would be
blemished. However, we now know that Adam was totally restored to the “very good” condition;
science confirms what has been in Genesis all along.
Here is another significant scientific fact concerning the creation of Eve. Adam, being human
male, had one X and one Y chromosome; Eve had two X’s. This may be a small point, but it
shows that all the genetic information required to create Eve was in Adam. So, Eve could be
taken from Adam, but Adam could not be taken from Eve. It all works and the Bible
If the Bible were used as the basis of science, we wouldn’t waste so much time and resources.
We are finding that the Bible accurately describes dark mass and energy, genetics, zoology,
geology, paleontology, linguistics, and physics. The Bible has stood, stands, and will stand
Post Note: It is a myth that women have fewer ribs than men.
THE FALL: “…Not only did Eve sin, but she became the agent of temptation for Adam. But when
Adam ate, he was not deceived as Eve was. Adam sinned with his eyes wide open, in open
rebellion against God.
i. Therefore, it is Adam, not Eve, who bears the responsibility for the fall of the human race and
for the introduction of death into the created order (Romans 5:12, 1 Corinthians 15:22). Eve
was tricked into sinning; Adam knew exactly what he was doing (1 Timothy 2:14).
ii. Many have speculated that Adam sinned because he didn’t want Eve to be alone in the fall,
and he ate of the fruit out of a romantic impulse. This may well be true, but it makes Adam’s sin
not one bit less rebellious. Rebellion against God is not “better” when motivated by a romantic
iii. “Take and eat” will one day become verbs of salvation, but only after Jesus had
lived in the world of Adam’s curse and surrendered to death…”http://www.enduringword.
Spiritually they died right away, because their sin separated them from God.
“…Although God had created previous hominid species
on earth, modern humans were the first to possess a
spirit with which to communicate with and worship God.
The Bible makes it clear that Adam was created outside
the garden of Eden and placed in it when everything
was ready (Genesis 2:15).” http://www.godandscience.
Adam was cast out of the Garden of Eden. No longer
could he even contemplate eating from the Tree of
Life. It was beyond his reach. Physical death now
began to enter the human race. Adam began to die!
The last Adam (Christ) later came to Earth to die so
that through faith in Jesus, we may now inherit the
eternal life Adam forfeited. Indeed, Jesus says to
those who persevere in faith, ‘To him who
overcomes, I will grant to eat of the Tree of Life
which is in the Paradise of God. http://www.
