I will argue that the Bible is a scientific document and would like to thank my opponent for creating this debate. I will show that the Bible mentioned scientific facts hundreds of years before contemporary science discovered them. As such, by the Bible I mean the 66 books of the Protestant Bible as found in the King James Version of the Bible.

Since Girg had an emergency and wants this to be a tie, I accept. He said he will create the same debate next week, so I will wait. Voters, please make this a tie.

**NOTICE**
since I am not able to post this on a round, I may post here. I have a family situation that just happened and I will not be able to access the Internet reliably for maybe a week. Since this is an emergency and no arguments have been posted, it is reasonable to say that this is not a forfeit. I ask that there be a tie and I WILL create this same debate with the same person after a week or as soon as I get back. Once again I greatly apologize and I hope you understand.
