The book of Job is one of the oldest in the Old Testament. Traditionally ascribed to Moses highway , who heard a Job in Uz , region between Arabia and Edom . On the date of writing , scholars not completed agree, but the tradition set in between 1500 and 1400 BC
The fact is that Job is a description of the Earth floating in space , suspended in "nothing" from outer space. How did Job know this? the answer is easy for believers : " oviamente God told him ." But for those who did not believe this statement was only an enigmatic Job poetic phrase , just a way of saying . The world's oldest civilizations , considered that :

  • Babylonian : the Earth was disc-shaped and was floating in the sea.
  • The Incas believed that the world was a barge with gable roof .
  • The Aztecs developed a world model consisting of five squares: one in the center ( the earth itself) and the other four with each of its sides ( thus linking the cardinal points East, North, West and South ) .
  • Hindus believed that the earth rested on the backs of four elephants , which in turn were standing on a giant turtle. And the turtle floating in the Great Ocean.

It was only when the man went to outer space could actually be seen as " poetic phrase of Job " was the right one. Here are some photos from NASA:

Already very old Bible records the fact that you can only see from outer space . The Bible is God 's Word .

Are we ready ?
