Summary: The scientific accuracy of the bible proves it to come from God and to also prove the bible to be more important and superior than all other books and here we will discuss the scientific necessity for chemical substances to be measured in exact proportion
1. Please open your bible to Isaiah 40:12.

UTSA atheist group receives widespread attention for its ‘smut’ exchange.
The fourth annual “Smut for Smut” event, hosted by the Atheist Agenda March 1-3, offered free pornography magazines like Playboy and Penthouse
to students ages 18 and older in exchange for their Bibles, Qurans, Torahs and other religious literature. [I was mistaken in my reading of their report last week, I was under the impression that the pornography was of a milder form than Playboy and Penthouse.]
The event drew international feedback, including press from Australia, New Zealand and Spain, according to the organization’s Twitter account.
Most media reported on the resulting UTSA student protests. San Antonio College’s newspaper, The Ranger, reported that Atheist Agenda President Carlos Morales had to change his phone number at the end of the week to avoid the influx of hate calls.
“The campus response was astounding,” said “Joe,” an Atheist Agenda officer, in an e-mail sent from the organization’s address.
“Obviously, it had a lot of negative response from the religious side,” he said, “but we had some religious people sitting with us because they believed in our freedom to do what we were doing, which was pretty awesome.”
This year, “Smut for Smut” received about 23 copies of religious texts. Because not everyone wanted a magazine, they handed out a few less in return.
3. Are you ashamed of the 23 who turned in the 23 copies of religious texts? Wouldn’t it be much more encouraging if no one would have put the bible and bible related material on the level of “pornographic smut”?
4. In this lesson we will discuss two scientific truths that prove that the bible is from God and that also prove that the bible is more important and superior to all other books.
1. Let’s read Isaiah 40:12, “Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure?
Weighed the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance?”
2. Modern science has proved that the quantity of water on Earth is just enough for our needs.
(1) If the sea became three meters deeper, the water would absorb all the carbon dioxide and nitrogen, and no creature could live any longer.
(2) Isaiah 40:12 (written approximately 2800 years ago) ask the question: "Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand..."
(3) We are told that God has measured the waters and set a proper amount of water on the Earth.
3. Modern true science also has proved that God has carefully measured and weighed the ingredients of every substance that He has created.
(1) What is remarkable about this scientific information is that substances will only chemically bond if they are in exact and correct proportions.
(2) Actually, it was more of a recent discovery when chemists accepted this truth, i.e. that all substances must be exact in proportion to combine.
(3) And yet, God alluded to this through the prophet Isaiah some 700 years before Christ walked the face of this earth in His public ministry!
4. Isaiah 40:12 provides another scientific proof that God is the author of the bible and that the bible, instead of being a book of “smut” is a book superior to all other books!
II. SECOND, TURN TO JOB 36:26-28. THIS PASSAGE REVEALED THE SCIENTIFIC ACCURACY ABOUT THE CYCLE OF WATER ABOUT 2600 YEARS BEFORE MAN UNDERSTOOD THE SCIENTIFIC TRUTH ABOUT THE CYCLE OF WATER.
1. Thirty years before Christ, a Roman Engineer named Marcus Vitruvius began to make known, to mankind in general, the scientific information about the cycle of water.
(1) Technically, the cycle of water is referred to by modern scientist by the term Hydrologic Water Cycle.
(2) Hydro, is a term referring to water. Logic is referring to the logical process of the water cycle.
2. As we get ready to read Job 36:26-28 it is important to notice that the greatness and eternity of God is illustrated by the water cycle process.
(1) Let’s read Job36:27&28, “26 “ Behold, God is great, and we do not know Him;
Nor can the number of His years be discovered.27 For He draws up drops of water, Which distill as rain from the mist, 28 Which the clouds drop down And pour abundantly on man.”
(2) God draws particles of water and they form a cloud, and then when God chooses to do so the water in the clouds will be sent down in the form of rain and for the benefit of man.
