The Amazing Scientific Accuracy of Job: Episode 1 of 7

The Book of Job is one of the most read and
discussed texts of the Bible. Scholars of the biblical text, historians, philosophers,
even psychologists hail Job as a masterpiece of ancient literature. Martin Luther exclaimed
that Job is “magnificent,” like “no other book of Scripture.” One scholar of the 20th
century stated the author was “the Shakespeare of the Old Testament” while an influential
French writer, poet and politician of the 18th century noted, Job “is the most sublime
monument in literature, not only of written language, nor of philosophy and poetry, but
the most sublime monument of the human soul. Here is the great eternal drama with three
actors who embody everything: but what actors! God, humankind, and Destiny.” Clearly, the
biblical Book of Job transcends like any good piece of literature.
Most know the Book of Job as a story of a man’s struggle to understand divine justice.
The tale opens introducing its main character as a man of unparalleled piety. He is described
as “perfect and upright;” a man “who feared God and eschewed evil.” In a heavenly court,
God brings to the attention of one of his divine attendants, a being known as the Accuser,
the flawless Job. The Accuser points out that Job is pious precisely because God has never
allowed any harm to come to him and wagers that if some disaster befell the man, he would
turn on the deity and curse his name. God allows the divine being to bring disaster
and disease to Job, robbing him of all his property and possessions, killing his ten
children and covering his body with painful boils. The opening chapters close, describing
Job as still unwavering in his faith. The Job in the center section of the book, however,
is different than the one in the prolog. Here Job is found cursing the day he was born.
He is then joined by three of his friends who enter into a dialogue with him, exploring
the reasons for his great suffering with Job actively calling into question God’s divine
justice. God, his honor tarnished by Job’s complaints, comes from a whirlwind to appear
before the mortal and defend his actions. In the divine discourse, God describes the
origin of the world and the order of living things as well as the nature of some fantastical
creatures and questions Job’s understanding of these deep subjects and incredible works
of creation. The book closes with a humbled Job and God restoring all that Job had lost,
including providing 10 new children. In the end, Job dies an old man, “full of days.”
Because of Job’s setting, in a world that appears to predate the nation of Israel, some
believe that the book’s story was created before the first chapter of the Book of Genesis.
Jewish tradition ascribes the book to Moses. This tradition places Job’s original composition
sometime during the lifetime of the patriarch Jacob with the story probably being passed
along on stone tablets until they reached Moses who edited the material into its final
version as we have it today. But, hidden in this tale of one man’s struggle
to understand divine justice, is there even more? Does the story reveal stunningly accurate
details about the nature of our world and our universe not discovered until the modern
era? Does Job evidence remarkably advanced scientific insight and as such, reveal the
divine inspiration of the Bible and biblical infallibility, and more, evidence for the
very existence of God? The forces of nature, including that of the
air, wind and earth, have long fascinated humanity. Throughout history humans have struggled
to understand the environment, creating stories to explain the source and behavior of the
elements, seeking ways to control nature so as to benefit humankind. In ancient Greece, different gods were believed
to control the elements of air and water, for example. Greek mythology had four wind
gods — one representing each cardinal direction — each with a unique personality. Boreas,
god of the north wind, was exceedingly strong with a violent temper who was responsible
for the biting cold winter winds. Notus, god of the south wind, was feared as a destroyer
of crops and it was he who brought the winds carrying the raging storms of late summer
and autumn. Zephyrus was the god of the west wind, a gentle being who brought light breezes
during the spring and early summer. And then there was Eurus, god of the east wind believed
to be associated with bad luck, his wind was often accompanied by warm rain. In Shintoism, the native religion of Japan,
Susanowo is the god of the sea and storms. He has a ferocious and impulsive temper. He
is responsible for ravaging storms causing extensive damage on the Japanese islands. Fen-rear, the great wolf god of Norse mythology,
was believed to have been responsible for the great trembling of the ground and mountains
when he howled in anger, creating deep fractures in the earth’s crust. Tó Neinilii, is the Navaho God of Water.
He was responsible for the rain and snow and also caused thunder and lightning. He is believed
to have been a mischievous god, meaning no true harm, but enjoying the tricks he played
on human beings, sending downpours on a family’s picnic, for example. Modern scientific study of the earth and elements,
however, have de-mythologized our understanding of how the wind blows, what causes earthquakes
and how elements like air and water work together to form gentle summer showers or torrential
monsoon rains. Modern earth and atmospheric sciences have been able to unravel a great
many mysteries that baffled the ancient world. Is such knowledge of the earth and weather
systems only a modern discovery, however? Or, is there evidence that such wisdom was
embedded in the biblical Book of Job? If such modern scientific facts can indeed be discovered
in Job, this would indicate that either the ancient author had remarkably up-to-date knowledge
or that the Bible was indeed inspired by a divine super-intelligence. Apologetics, generally, is the study and practice
of defending a certain set of beliefs or specific worldview. Christian apologetics, then, is
the study and practice of defending Christian doctrine and the Christian worldview. Biblical
apologetics is a specialized branch of Christian apologetics and specifically aims to defend
the Bible itself from various criticisms leveled against its historical and scientific accuracy
and claims supporting the belief in its supposed divine origins. Biblical apologists practice
this defense of the Bible and have developed many sophisticated proofs which argue positively
for the Bible’s historical and scientific accuracy as well as supporting evidence for
the divine nature of the book’s ultimate authorship.

    +Lazlo Isomer I suppose you also think it isn't worth the time prosecuting murderers, because the world has enough hate as it is? And rapists, and thieves, they should all be left to themselves to carry on with what they do, because criticizing people is so much worse than all that! Right?

    It's very easy for you to put quotes around the word "correct" and pretend like you've actually made a point, but the dating of the book of Job is exactly the LEAST important point being made here. The whole "God made a bet with his mortal enemy to fuck someone's life up" thing is what matters, and that's just the beginning.
    It's just as easy to dismiss Brett's videos about the ridiculous Noah story as 'inaccurate' with no support at all, but I could just as easily do as you do; dismiss you as a liar and claim victory.

    The bible is full of nonsense and inaccuracies and outright fabrications, which is easy to figure out. People not only waste their time believing in it, but try to force others who know better to live their lives according to the dictates of primitive, bronze-age bigots. To not fight back is exactly as bad as letting murderers and thieves go free 'because the world has enough hate as it is'. You're demanding that we let liars continue to lie because criticizing a liar is worse than lying to someone. With all due respect to you: that is fucking retarded.

    I brought it, as you asked, but I doubt you read more than the first few words looking for "Amen brother!" and then lost interest when they didn't come.

    Job's story is one of the more disgusting ones in the bible. If there is anything that turned me away from Christianity, it was that revolting puddle of bile. I don't know about you, but any god who would do what was said to happen in that story is not one that I would ever deem worthy of worshiping, regardless of whether or not he actually existed. I would rather burn for eternity than to lick his feet the way it is said things happen in "heaven". Being torn apart over and over again until the end of time would be a joy over having to debase myself to someone who sees me as something so insignificant, yet needed my worship. Yahweh is a bully with a magnifying glass, burning ants as he sees fit, and laughing about it as they try to gain his favor. Sorry, had to get that off my chest. I just don't see how people can hold this story up as an example of their god's "divine justice".

    Let this God of Abraham come quickly. Let him take vengeance on all his enemies. Let Jesus come with the clouds and then I will be eager to hear what all you nonbelievers will say then. It will be to late. Repent therefore while you still have time because your time is short and then you will meet your creator whom you have made your enemy. Try all the days of your life to deny his existence or even critizise his actions but your time is only a few years. I like when people are honest and they say, "I want nothing to do with a God who operates in such a way", rather than to say there is no God. Only fools believe there is no creator. Honesty pays and you have a much greater chance of being saved but not when your honesty derives from malice. Believe in Jesus and ask for forgiveness and you will have everlasting life. Either way we only have a few years before we die and there is no need to try and deny reality. We all die and then we will see not to say I want to say I told you so but nevertheless that's the time when I will meet my maker of he doesn't come back before then.

    "The Internet: Where Religion comes to die."
    While Youtube is constantly changing its features, the one change that is probably the most valuable to humanity is the "Recommended for you", which over the years has helped to bring Atheists and Theists in contact. It's way more fun…some of the Recommendations seem off the mark, but I must admit its enlarged my world and I've never been happier. I don't need to troll. I love seeing the discussions.
    It takes a really closed minded person to ignore every video that may present an alternate view…and for so long the internet was simply curating and feeding our biases. I'd like to recognize YT for the real clash of ideas it presents to the individual who  chooses to learn more, explore and question their beliefs in privacy.

    Job is the work of a mentally ill person, a masochist, who tries to glorify his abject subjection to corrupt authority.

    "Divine being"?????  Since when did the Bible refers to Satan as "Divine Being"???

    It's Satan having a bet with God that Job would curse God if all his blessings were removed.

    I bet most of these negative comments come from people who have never read the Bible. Usually the bad language comes from the atheists.

    I never understood why people were so full of praise for the language of Job. I admit i have only read it ind epth in the german translation, just has occasional looks into it in english, but to me it was boring, repetetive (especially the shenanigans of his three friends) and unnecessarily cruel… the height of it all was how god just casually punishes Job's wife for god having fucked up and now needing to reward Job for being unfaltering in his loyalty… instead of giving them "miraculously" the ten dead sons back, the poor woman has to give birth to another twenty kids… (Job got twice as much of everything he lots, including the sons!) so she spent 3/4 of 30 years pregnant… 22.5 years. Thank you, god…

    Even if the Bible was 100% scientifically and historically accurate, it wouldn't prove anything, other than the people who wrote it being remarkably smart cookies for their time. Being erroneous or contradict itself, science, or history in any way, however, does exclude it from having been inspired by an all-knowing God (assuming he is incapable of deceit) – though it does not necessarily exclude the possibility of an incompetent, misinformed, or deceitful deity inspiring it either.

    In short, proving the Bible's scientific or historical voracity proves nothing useful about God, and they would be better served focusing on other arguments. Personally, I think they should focus more of their efforts on proving that their "God" isn't a crazy, megalomaniac, genocidal tyrant, hell-bent on world-domination – but then, that would be hard to argue as well.

    Ok ummmmm so yea Moses all that is Oral Tradition supposedly. However using academic modern day Biblical Scholarship we can narrow the sources to definitively state that the Jewish tradition came from not one source ie Moses but instead is composed of several separate cultural /religious/political sources and was compiled over time. This book Job is a curious one however but it more likely finds its origins in ancient sumeria and is an adapted story for the Judeo audience. If you are looking for a religion to be proved by science you can head right over to buddhism and modern particle physics. In the New Testament you were told that one will know the good from bad by the fruits they bear. No where is some logical proof of god claimed or hinted at in open or in secret. It does not work like that because that would be schizophrenic or worse idiocy. You must wrestle with faith as Jacob. There is no answer outside the altar of self.
