The Paths of the Seas

“Matthew Maury (1806-1873) … began his career as a naval officer… While ashore between voyages, he was seriously injured in a freak stagecoach accident… causing permanent lameness…. when Maury read Psalms 8:8… The phrase ‘paths of the seas’ particularly struck him…. He discovered that there definitely were pathways… where current streams moved much faster than the water around it… sailing time was greatly reduced. Maury was the first to chart these…

Another Bible verse that struck Maury was Ecclesiastes 1:6, “… on its circular courses the wind returns.” …Maury investigated and also discovered pathways in the air – what are now known as jet streams. By learning the circuits of these air currents, weather was better understood and more accurate predictions became possible, thus birthing modern meteorology. And today, airplanes use the jet streams Maury discovered to reduce travel time…

Whenever there is a conflict between ‘science’ and the Bible, just wait. Instance after instance affirms that ‘science’ routinely changes its initial position as new discoveries are made, eventually lining up with what the Scriptures said…”
