The Bible is being proven right about the water in the Earth's oceans

Catholic Online (10/22/11) asks “Were comets the source of the Earth’s oceans?”

This online article was a nice overview of the role of comets and the Oort Cloud of comets that encloses our solar system in supplying the waters for the Earth’s oceans. This concept is now widely accepted by planetary scientists.  Unfortunately, the online article failed to mention how the Bible in a number of passages refers to this concept several thousand years before science has come to learn of it.  For example, Job 38:22-23NAS refers to the comets of the Oort Cloud when it asks, “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail …” And Psalm 148:4 referring to comets as “waters,” says “Praise him…ye waters that be above the heavens.”

On October 19, 2011 NASA announced that it found evidence for an ongoing comet bombardment in the nearby star system Eta Corvi.  They spotted a bright ring of dust around Eta Corvi which indicates the collision of a massive comet with a planet.  They also found a more massive ring of dust at the far edge of the Eta Corvi system that seems to be a reservoir of cold cometary bodies similar to the Kuiper Belt of comets that leads up to the Earth’s  Oort Cloud. This directly supports the “comets brought the ocean’s waters “scenario called for by the Bible and NASA . http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2011/19oct_cometstorm/

Only in the last fifty years has scientific knowledge of comets caught up to the specific information contained in the Bible about comets.  Note that NASA’S recent analysis of satellite images of Comet Hartley 2 show that the water of comets can have the same chemical signature as the water in the Earth’s oceans, comets can carry poisonous chemicals such as cyanide, and comets can be surrounded by a cloud of hail stones weighing up to 100 pounds, all of which directly support information given in the Bible.  “THE COMETS OF GOD-New Scientific Evidence for God” by Jeffrey Goodman, Ph.D. discusses this information in detail.
