O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Nice little article by Ben Irwin showing once again problem passages in the Bible are not really a problem when read with a proper hermeneutic and understanding why the writers wrote the way they did.
"In other words, Genesis 1 reflects an ancient cosmology which we all know to be scientifically inaccurate. The earth is not a flat disc surrounded by a primeval ocean. There is no solid dome above us, and there is no heavenly ocean above that."
"So, for example, when God revealed himself as creator, he did so in the language of a prescientific world, within the framework of ancient Near Eastern cosmology — flat earth, solid firmament, moving stars, and all. That’s the only way that would have made sense to an ancient Near Eastern person, so that’s how God spoke."
