Andrew Sullivan quoted and gave a mention to a post I recently wrote. In it I pointed out that if the Bible contained more advanced knowledge that was humanly available in its time, as young-earth creationists and others like them are prone to claim, then we ought to expect more advanced medical advice, too. But we don’t find anything of the sort in there.
Andrew got the post from Adam Lee, who got it from Fred Clark at Slacktivist. Adam’s blog Big Think has some interesting exploration of what else we might have expected the Bible to say if it were supernaturally offering perspectives which transcend what was humanly possible within the culture of that time. I encourage you to click through and read what he has to say, as well as the interesting comments generated.
