I think we all know there are a lot of stars, and don't need to read the Bible to find that out.
Your claim however, was that you found out about galaxies from the Bible, a claim I find somewhat questionable.
So do you believe galaxies exist? Do you believe they consist of stars rotating around each other? Do you believe stars are similar to our sun?
I ...[text shortened]... ou believe them when you know perfectly well they are totally wrong about the most basic facts?
The following is a simple definition of galaxy by the Free Online dictionary:
n. pl. gal·ax·ies
a. Any of numerous large-scale aggregates of stars, gas, and dust that constitute the universe, containing an average of 100 billion solar masses and ranging in diameter from 1,500 to 300,000 light-years. Also called nebula.
b. often Galaxy The Milky Way.
I already told you that "galaxy" is a word made up by man to refer to the qrouping of stars made by God. I never said I learned everything I believe about stars, galaxies, or anything else just from the Holy Bible alone. But I reject things as unbelieveable, if it seems to contradict what is said in the Holy Bible.
The Holy Bible reveals some things about stars that could allow for galaxies, although that word has never been used to translate any portion of the Holy Bible with respect to stars. So I have no objection to the fact that there are many stars in the heaven or universe moving is some predetermined course by God, just like the constellations mentioned in that Holy Book.
What I do object to is the theory of evilution and you know why.
