It's never been proven wrong on anything which may be verified beyond a reasonable doubt. I believe that gives the rest of it credibility as accurate.

I read somewhere that a lot of it "takes place" in Iraq

but no it's not a scientific publication.

Some of it does. Some in Egypt, Israel, Arabia, Europe, Turkey, all over the Middle East.

Much of archeology gets its starting point from Biblical accounts.

No, and wasn't meant to be. It is a written history of God and the Jewish people and God's redemptive plan for mankind.

Precisely. The ridiculous notion that the bible was ever intended to convey scientific truth would have been laughed at by the biblical authors themselves. The ancients described truth in different ways than what our society currently values.

The Bible conveys many scientific ideas. All of them accurately

No. The Bible is equal amounts religious ramblings and historical bullshit.

I understand that, but without some form of comparison, this description is ultimately meaningless. As far as I can tell, this question is asking if the Bible is JAMA. Of course it's not. Why is that even a question?

As compared to your average high school science textbook. The ones that actually teach science and not Jesus.

You know... Given this Cracked article, you may want to reconsider your statement about textbooks ( www.cracked.com/article_21131_6-disturbing-things-i-learned-writing-your-textbooks.html ). ;)

It has certainly been used as a reference for historical accounts, but history and science are not exactly the same thing... so no
