So what good would it do for God to speak scientifically to the people of the time when this was written? They would not have a clue what He was talking about.

Well, it would have given them a huge leg up on the technolology of the region, that's for sure.

I mean, if they were just going to unquestioningly believe whatever God said, then he could have told them the truth in basic scientific terms, right?

And think of how many people today would be astonished and convinced of the divine origin of a 2000 year old text that plainly and very explicity explained the workings of the internal combustion engine, for example, or the Krebs cycle, or cell division.

Those are a couple of reasons God might have for putting modern science into an ancient book.
