Consider this: Not one a single scientific revelation of the nature of reality has come about by the literal or inspired reading of the bible - not one.
When did man discover that life was in the blood?
http://www.pbs.org/wnet/redgold/basics/bloodletting.html It wasn't until well into the 19th century that people began to question the value of bloodletting. Scientists such as Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, and Robert Koch showed that germs, not humors, were responsible for disease. Furthermore, medical statisticians tracking case histories began to collect evidence that bloodletting was not effective. Eventually the practice died, although it continued in some parts of rural America into the 1920s.
From what I can find it could not have been very long ago.
But had they read the Bible:
Levi 17:11 (KJS) For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.
The life of the flesh is in the blood: That was written a long time ago.
What occurs when a "being" has, simultaneous, removal of their nervous tissue ?
Removal of nervous tissue and WHAT simultaneous? Need 2 things for it to be simultaneous removal.
I do not have the foggiest idea at the point you are trying to make is. If you are saying the life is in the nervous tissue I would have a question.
Is the nervous tissue made up of cells and if so where do they get their energy and oxygen from to exist?
But what does that have to do with the Bible statement that the life of the flesh is in the blood.
If I remember correctly the human body is a very intricate piece of machinery.
Food is taken into the mouth or introduced intravenously. This food is then turned into energy the body can use. But for it to be useful it must reach the cells. Oxygen is taken into the nose or mouth into the lungs this oxygen has to reach the cells to be useful. We have a system of tubes that is filled with what we call blood. In that blood is a bunch of cargo submarines. Some take the energy to the proper cell, others take the oxygen to the proper cells. These cells then convert and put to use this energy and oxygen.
If you remove this energy and oxygen there is no life. In fact if you remove either one there is no life.
When the car runs out of gas there is no life in the engine. If it has no oxygen there is no life in the engine.
I have heard that the sun will burn up all of its energy one day and die.
Now I may be wrong and if so I am sure some of the faithful around here will correct me.
But remember the Bible does not say that the blood is life. It says that the life of the flesh is in the blood.
"John 5:39 (KJS) Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."
