The Bible revealed this information thousands of years ago, approximately 3000 years so that science could realize this affirmation by the means of the christian Issac Newton considered as the scientist that revolutionized science, modern physics and some of our greatest scientists off all times that have existed.
Some phrases of Issac Newton "I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily." "As a blind man has no idea of colors, so have we no idea of the manner by which the all-wise God perceives and understands all things." "God made and governs the world invisibly, and has commanded us to love and worship him and no other God; to honor our parents and masters, and love our neighbours as ourselves; and to be temperate, just, and peaceable, and to be merciful even to brute beasts." "We account the Scriptures of God to be the most sublime philosophy." "Plato is my friend; Aristotle is my friend, but my greatest friend is truth." *If Newton was a daily reader of the Bible and believed in it, remember that Jesus' words were “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
