Underwater Rivers on Ocean Floor

 A recent article on the net says that an underwater river has been discovered on the ocean floor near Australia.

The implication of the article is that 'a river in the ocean' is a fairly new concept though it does admit that other such underwater rivers have been found.

Yes, this is interesting.

But it is hardly news.

Why is this not news? you ask.

Well, because mankind has known, or could have known, about this for milleinnia since there is a reference in the Bible to underwater rivers.

As one blogger correctly pointed out, "The rivers or paths (way) in the sea were spoken by GOD thru Isaiah in the Bible thousands of years ago!!!! "

"Isaiah 43:16 Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;"

And, in addition to rivers in the ocean, the Bible tells us, in the book of Job, which is considered to be the oldest book in the Bible, that there are also undesea springs.

"Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth? Job 38:16"

So, even though all this may be new news to many folks.  It is not really new.

This is just one more affirmation of the accuracy of the Bible.
