I have heard many people say that Science and the Bible are enemies and do not fit together at all. In reality the people that make that statement are wrong:
There are many places in the Bible which have been scientifically been proven to be accurate. For example, read Matthew 24:29. That scene can also be found in Mark and Luke. If you know anything about science, then you'd know why it is scientifical. Look at how once the Sun gets darkened, the moon also loses brightness as a result.
My point? Keep in mind that 2,000 years ago, people thought that the Sun was 1 meter in diameter. How can the people be able to tell such scientific facts and have them be proven right later after much debate? [The book of Matthew was written at about 50 AD].

In both translations, the light is specifically attributed to the moon itself
The people who were seeing the visions did not know how to explain it. The science of that time said that the moon gave its own light. He saw in his vision that the Sun got dark, and AFTER that, the moon not longer was bright. According to the science of that time, the moon stopped giving its light.
Yeah, maybe because that's not what I am talking about. I am showing that the Bible does have some points that can be scientifically backed up. Of course there are things in there that are supernatural, like stars falling from the sky. So what? They are supernatural. God is not bound by science, therefore, you cannot prove the existence of God through science - let alone anything.

For people like you, that is very bad news because you wont accept that He does exist without proof. For me, I have 100% faith that God does exist. I do not need proof of His existence. He has worked so many miracles in my life that to say that He does not exist, is idiocy. I can list some of them for you if you want, however it would be off topic. I'll go to the chat room or something, I don't care.
So I have done my job and told you that He does exist. You are not my responsibility. Your blood is on your own hands now. I have done what I needed to do - that is it.
Do your homework Adequate. A philosospher estimated that the Sun was 1 meter in diameter. I can't think of his name right now - I think it might have been Galileo or something but I am really not sure at this point. Since I'm in a rush, I'll get your answer later.
