Preservero: "Well, either some scientists’ current theories are infallible, or the Bible is infallible.
Take your pick.
I go with God’s word."

You may know, science is not about "infallible" theories, but rather about using confirmed data (aka "facts") to help form testable (falsifiable) hypotheses.
Hypotheses which pass many significant tests are considered "theories".

No "theory" is considered "infallible", but has been accepted until the time when some confirmed test falsifies its predictions.

By sharp contrast, the Bible makes no falsifiable scientific predictions.

“You may know, science is not about “infallible” theories, but rather about using confirmed data (aka “facts”) to help form testable (falsifiable) hypotheses.”

You may know, that science has used “confirmed” data (aka “facts”) to help form testable hypotheses, which have been presented as facts, which have been found later to be false.

Even today we could cite several such ludicrous theories, (aka “facts”. Global warming is a good one.

God’s word is true, and His history of the world, along with everything else He says, is accurate.

Romans 3:3-4

“For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar.”
