My dear science teacher, if that is your biggest concern, then I think you've missed the whole point. The bible was written to address something that can't be measured or "observed" in the common way that man observes the physical. It was written to reveal God to man and to address the spiritual condition of man/woman; not the physical. It just so happens that the physical life has an affect on the spiritual, and the lack of spiritual understanding shows up in physical ways; ie, death, disease, violence. Now there's a science that you should study...God understands the effects of the physical and spiritual interactions in ways that we humans could benefit from.
