No, the Bible was not written as a work of science. The Bible was not written to describe the complex workings of the physical world. It was written to explain spiritual principles - the nature of man, the nature of God… how man can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Indeed, with God!.
As we have seen, however, when the Bible describes the physical world, it is quite accurate.
