Science catches up with Scripture

14 August 2008

Fox reported Monday that a scientific study presented evidence that "a sensory cell can process an alternative sensation".  They differentiated this process from the already previously known condition named synesthesia where some people are able to feel, hear, and taste colors.   In essence the study has found that our auditory nervous system can send auditory signals to the image processing centers of the brain for faster tracking of sounds.

"Where is this found in Scripture" you might ask?

Exodus 20:18

And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

The Hebrew word in this passage is reyim: "they saw".  They saw the thunder... and the noise of the trumpet.  The Hebrew word for "hear" is azan. This passage never says they heard these things it says they saw these things.

The people of God have known this type of thing is possible for the past 3,500 years.  Science is catching up with Scripture.
