Archaeology of Biblical Astronomy
The book of Job, which most scholars believe to be the oldest book in the Bible, was probably written approximately 2150 B. C., 650 years before Moses was born in Egypt. This is over 1,100 years before Homer's Odyssey and 1,500 years before Thales, the first of the philosophers, was born. In chapter 38, God breaks into the conversation and speaks to Job and his false comforters, saying:
Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, Who set its measurements? Since you know.Or who stretched the line on it? On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone?" (Job 38:4-6) When the MORNINGG STARS SANG TOGETHER, and all the sons of God SHOUTED FOR JOY? Job 38:7
Can you imagine having the power to create and build a world for the ones you love and cherish. Every minute detail to perfection and having an audience of the stars celebrating your works.
These questions show us that only God had the answers, since God always was, is and will be here. Mere humans can't possibly challenge Him because they simply lack Divine experience and wisdom. Moreover, we learn here that the world of God is like a building and only God knows how it should be built. This description is very similar to the description of creation in the first chapter of Genesis. First, God created the space to live in this world (sea, land) and the time (sun, moon and stars). Only after God had finished these two “floors” did He create creatures (animals and humanity.)
