Solomon was wise about science

The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him.
All his thoughts are, “There is no God.” – Psalm 10:4

Everyone knows about the wisdom of Solomon. But did you know that Solomon was wise about natural things?

Now God gave Solomon wisdom and very great discernment and breadth of mind, like the sand that is on the seashore. Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the sons of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt. For he was wiser than all men, than Ethan the Ezrahite, Heman, Calcol and Darda, the sons of Mahol; and his fame was known in all the surrounding nations. He also spoke 3,000 proverbs, and his songs were 1,005. He spoke of trees, from the cedar that is in Lebanon even to the hyssop that grows on the wall; he spoke also of animals and birds and creeping things and fish. Men came from all peoples to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all the kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom. – 1 Kings 4:29-34

Solomon sought the truth, and God blessed him with wisdom to find it and teach it. Solomon was a wise scientist—not like all these wicked, lying fools whose first principle is, “There is no God.” We should never be intimidated by such men.
