I found this posted on facebook. I'd like to hear what you guys think about this.

Science then? There was NO science during the sheep herding days of the old testament bible.
Even if it was true -- though I can see from the first example provided that it isn't --, the Bible provides one or two cryptic lines on the subject matter which need to be liberally interpreted to reconcile with reality, whereas modern science has created volumes of work describing each individual item.
And in some cases, all three columns are wrong:
My point here is not to treat this seriously, but rather to illustrate the level of ignorance or disregard for truth required to generate the list in the OP.
"Science then" was not science.
Absolute nonsense. Life is too short to be refuting this crap.
When you have a document rife with contradictions and inconsistencies, now and then you'll find a nugget of truth, but look on another page and you'll read something opposite or inconsistent.
How about a list of all of the idiotic things in The Bible?
Isaiah 40:22 - "It is he who sitteth upon the circle of the earth...." - the ancient Sumerians believed the earth was a flat disk, surrounded by a dome of tin. But WE know the truth, don't we --?
Here's a by-product of religion:
Chile arrests 4 accused of burning baby in rite
SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -Chilean police on Thursday arrested four people accused of burning a baby alive in a ritual because the leader of the sect believed that the end of the world was near and that the child was the antichrist.
The 3-day-old baby was taken to a hill in the town of Colliguay near the Chilean port of Valparaiso on Nov. 21 and was thrown into a bonfire. The baby's mother, 25-year-old Natalia Guerra, had allegedly approved the sacrifice and was among those arrested.
"The baby was naked. They strapped tape around her mouth to keep her from screaming. Then they placed her on a board. After calling on the spirits they threw her on the bonfire alive," said Miguel Ampuero, of the Police investigative Unit, Chile's equivalent of the FBI.
Authorities said the 12-member sect was formed in 2005 and was led by Ramon Gustavo Castillo Gaete, 36, who remains at large.
"Everyone in this sect was a professional," Ampuero said. "We have someone who was a veterinarian and who worked as a flight attendant, we have a filmmaker, a draftsman. Everyone has a university degree."
Police said Castillo Gaete, the ringleader, was last seen traveling to Peru to buy ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic brew plant that he used to control the members of the rite.
@Teri - I took a long time tonight reading each passage in the Bible along with the commentaries on each of them and with the exception of possibly Job 38:16 based on those commentaries they are ALL taken out of context to fit the view of the person who simply wanted to show how the Bible supports science. NONE of them are written with a scientific mind but rather are used metaphorically to describe other things. I was trying to put together what was starting to look like a master's thesis but I went over the 4K limit and said "fuck it," You all probably know how to read the Bible, why am I wasting my time trying to disprove something that is obviously taken out of context.
11 points, where maybe there is present agreement? So if you found an exhaustive list, how would this fair?
