Great email on God's Word and the Science of Human Bones

A good friend shared this email, had to pass on:
An excerpt from something I was reading today:

“Bone is built of two basic components: flexible fibers of collagen and brittle chains of the calcium-rich mineral hydroxyapatite. But those relatively simple ingredients, the springy and the salty, are woven together into such a complex cat’s cradle of interdigitating layers that the result is an engineering masterpiece of tensile, compressive and elastic strength. “We only wish we could mimic it,” Dr. Ritchie said.

The full article can be found here. Just goes to show how marvelously and fearfully we are made. Job 10:11 says:

clothe me with skin and flesh
and knit me together with bones and sinews?

Goes to show how accurate the Word of God is, even regarding the words it chooses to describe us. I am positive the author of this verse did not know any biology, but wrote down words revealed to him by God.

Just had to share this humbling moment.
