Summary on Astronomy & Bible
nDid the Jews have some special talent in science?
nNo, their uninspired books are not impressive in this regard:
n1 Enoch 72:
nThe sun is a chariot driven by wind.
n3 Baruch 3: 
nThe Tower of Babel built to drill a hole in heavenŐs dome!
nThe BibleŐs explanation is that it is a revelation from the God who made the universe.
