Most Christians assume that God revealed basic scientific facts about nature in the Bible. Known as “scientific concordism” or simply “concordism,” it attempts to align and harmonize modern science and Scripture. This presentation examines a number of biblical passages dealing with the natural world. It proposes that the Holy Spirit accommodated in the revelatory process and allowed the use of an incidental ancient understanding of nature (ie, an ancient science) as an incidental vessel to deliver inerrant Spiritual Truths.
