then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. (Genesis 2:7 ESV)
As I am learning more and more about the earth and it’s process I am learning more and more about the truth of God. Genesis 2:7 rang a bell in me.
The earth’s crust contains most of the 100 or so chemical elements discovered thus far. Only eight of them make up more than 98 percent of the crust. These are, in order of abundance, oxygen, silicon, aluminum, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. In addition to water, we are composed of about 6 percent minerals: calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, magnesium and iron – do you see a pattern here?
There was no way that the author of Genesis 2:7 knew that our mineral makeup was similar to the earth’s.
The idea of us being composed by different minerals wasn’t around until 330 BC when Aristotle made the hypothesis. The periodic table wasn’t composed until 1869 by Mendeleev. Genesis was written in 5 BC!
It amazes me to think of a creator who would get down and personally create a human from dirt and breath his very own life into him! God wants to have a relationship with you!
So think about it, look it up! God and science are compatible! True science proves that God exists and that the Bible is infallible and inerrant.
