Psalm 8:8 "And the fish of the sea, and whatsoeverpasses through the paths of the seas."
What does the Bible mean by "paths" of the seas?
The sea is just a huge mass of water, how then could it have paths?
Man discovered the existence of ocean currents in the 1850's, but the Bible declared the science of oceanography 2800 years ago.

The Bible informs us here that the Earth is round. At a time when science thought the Earth was flat, it was the Scriptures that inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world.
