The fact that the bible does not mention bacteria, perhaps the earth's most prevalent and widespread form of life, is a proof that the bible was written by men and not god. Men certainly did not know about bacteria until a few hundred years ago. Had men known of bacteria in biblical times, bacteria would have been mentioned considering their relationship with diseases which were mentioned.
The Holy Bible says God created everything seen and unseen. The unseen would include such thing as bacteria. Not all plants and creatures that God created was mentioned in the Holy Bible. God gave Adam the priviledge of naming those creatures he could see.
God said his creation was good when he finished and we know that not all bacteria today is bad. Evil, pain, and suffering came into the world as a result of our rejection of God's perfect plan.
I think the fact that some early men lived to be nearly 1000 years old indicates
that these unseen things may have taken time for some of them to become bad enough to kill us. But God provided ways for us to overcome their evil effects. The Olive Leaf has the distinction of being one of the few medicinal plants mentioned in the Bible. Studies show that Olive Leaf extract is a potent antimicrobial that has inhibited the growth of every human pathogen it has been tested against, including viruses, bacteria, protozoa, fungi and yeast.
We have an awesome God. HalleluYah !!! Praise the Lord! 😏
