In the Book Of Job, it tells you about sea springs and how they were in the ocean during those days. But they were not discovered by Man until the late 1970's.
If you will take the time and read for yourself, you will see that the Bible once again, has historical significance. And it has scientific evidence and discoveries that are still being found by Mankind. See website below.

This is just one of the other factual things mentioned in the Bible.

I wonder if they can find their way out of of this one.

The fact that both scientists and the Bible uses the phrase "springs of the sea" means nothing, other than that language is influenced by religion (which is so well known, it's the equivalent of saying maths influences physics). On top of this, when we look at Barnes' notes on the Bible, we see that "the word here rendered "springs" (נבך nêbek), occurs nowhere else in the Scriptures. It is rendered by the Vulgate "profunda," the deep parts; and by the Septuagint πηγὴν pēgēn - "fountains." Or, the term springs simply means deep parts in the context of the Vulgate (4th century translation to latin, which translates easily to other european languages). Gill's exposition states it rendered as "the drops of the sea".

the fact that some people have translated this way, and I mean a very small some, proves that you see the word "spring", and you see a scientific event using the word "spring", and you go ecstatic.

Sea Springs were mentioned in the book of JOB. I think it was JOB 38:16.

16"Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea
or walked in the recesses of the deep?

A spring means a small amount of gushing water. That verse could have also meant the currents of the sea. That hypothesis is much more likely.

There are also verses that says this:

13 that it might take the earth by the edges
and shake the wicked out of it?

The earth has edges?

22Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of the hail,
23which I reserve for times of trouble,
for days of war and battle?

There is a place where God puts snow to fall?

25Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain,
and a path for the thunderstorm,

We know how the climate works, and it doesn't work like that.

So is this chapter literal or metaphorical? Just be careful how you interpret "springs of the sea."

always love these, it never ceases to amaze me how the bible verse they are referring to is usually left out. If it isn't the argument always looks embarrassingly inadequate.

The Pyramid of Giza faces towards True North to within a very small degree.
True North wasn't discovered for thousands of years after the pyramid was built.
Obviously, that's undeniable proof Aliens came down and helped to build them.

You refute yourself. If the verse in the Bible indicated sea springs, then their date of discovery would have been c. 5k B.C.E., not 1970's.

It also says that the human race started out of incest, that a man survived an ungodly amount of time in a whale, and that the world was created in seven days.

"The reference seems to be to the deep fountains at the bottom of the sea, which were supposed to supply it with water." http://bible.cc...

This was just a misunderstanding of where the water in the ocean "comes from."

"And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which [were] under the firmament from the waters which [were] above the firmament: and it was so. (Genesis 1: 6-7)"

I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.
