Just kiddin'!! But I second everything YardleyLabs so nicely put in his post. Maybe the Bible is the 'brief explanation' for those who want the quick answer, and science is the 'fine print' for those who want to study the world around them...page by page.
Hey, there's still astrophysicists arguing the theory of gravity. With more modern measurement tools, we've discovered that both planets and some manmade space probes are NOT behaving as our current theories predict. The formulas we all leaned in physics 101 may only be very accurate approximations of the real math or theories behind why we stick to the ground.
Just keepin' it real,
