Bible Miracles: The Air Cycle

Picture Showing Air Cycle
On Earth, air currents are concentrated areas of winds. They are mainly due to differences in pressure and or temperature. They are divided into horizontal and vertical currents. A difference in air pressure causes an air displacement and generates the wind. The Force deflects the air movement to the right in the northern hemisphere and the left in the southern hemisphere, which makes the winds parallel to the isobars (a line on a map connecting points having the same atmospheric pressure at a given time or on average over a given period) on an elevation in pressure card. It’s called the geostrophic wind.

We now know that air around the earth turns in huge circles, clockwise in one hemisphere, and counter-clockwise in the other. The Bible describes air currents more than twenty-five hundred years before scientists discovered them. At a time when it was thought that winds blew straight, the Bible declares:

Ecclesiastes 1:6: The wind goes toward the south, And turns around to the north; The wind whirls about continually and comes again on its circuit. NKJV
