(Pro 8:29 KJV) When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
God has given His “command” (6310) to the ocean. We are looking at one of the reasons that modern science developed in Christian Europe and not in the pagan world. In the pagan world the tides would be explained as some kind of childish conflict between man-like gods. It would not be of any value to study the tides because the gods might have a different temper tantrum next week. Christians look at the ocean as bound by the one true God, the Creator. That creator is immutable. That means unchanging. Since you can take that to the bank the scientific method made sense. Eventually scientists caught on.
So? We still have a lot to learn. The part that modern scientists are refusing to learn is the moral law that goes along with the physical laws. Both come from an unchanging God.
