The Book of Job is probably the oldest book of the Bible, written long before Moses wrote the Book of Genesis. Job was asked a series of creation questions by God. Job did not answer them but he did record them for us to read, because it was God who did all the things written in Job chapter 38. Here is some of the creation questions asked to Job by God.
"Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the cornerstone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, an all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?" (Job 38:4-8)
In these set of questions, God asked Job about the earth, sea, stars and angels. Job or any other man was not there "In the beginning" (Genesis 1:1). We now know through scientific calculations the size of the earth. We also know now that our sun and the other stars in the universe give off sound frequencies that makes each one different from each other. Literally like the Scripture says "When the morning stars sang together". The "sons of God" are angels who also where there at the time of creation, and they "shouted for joy?"
"Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?" (Job 38:16). Oceans contain springs. The ocean is very deep. almost all the ocean floor is in total darkness and the pressure there is enormous. It would have been impossible for Job to have explored the "springs of the sea". Until recently, it was thought the oceans were fed only by rivers and rain. Yet in the 1970s, with the help of deep diving research submarines that were constructed to withstand 6,000 pounds per square inch pressure, oceanographers discovered springs on the ocean floor!
"Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof" (Job 38:19). Light travels in a path. Light is said to have a "way". Until the 17th century it was believed that light was transmitted instantaneously. We now know that light is a form of energy that travels at 186,000 miles per second in a straight line. Indeed, there is a "way" of light.
"By what way is light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?" (Job 38:24). Light can be divided. Sir Issac Newton studied light and discovered that white light is made of seven colors, which can be "parted" and then recombined. Science confirmed this four centuries ago. God declared this 4,000 years ago.
"Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleaides, or loose the bands of Orion?" (Job 38:30). The Pleiades and Orion star clusters described. The Pleaides star cluster (also called "seven sisters" in Amos 5:8) is gravitationally bound, while the Orion star cluster is loose and disintegrating because the gravity of the cluster is not enough to bind the group together. 4,000 years ago God asked Job this question. Yet, it is only recently that we realized the the Pleiades are gravitationally bound but Orion's stars are flying apart.
"Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?" (Job 38:35). The Bible says that light can be sent, and then manifest itself in speech. We now know that radio waves and light waves are two forms of the same thing - electromagnetic waves. Therefore, radio waves are a form of light. Today, using radio transmitters, we can send "lightnings" which indeed speak when they arrive.
The Bible is so far advance that we are only now discovering its scientific proofs. The Book of Job is an excellent book that reveals a lot about creation but also shows how frail man is compare to the knowledge of God.
