People in biblical times had no idea that space exists. Why do you think the creation of the entire universe took less than a day but one measly planet took at least 4 days? They thought earth was all there is and stars are just little lights, no further away than our sun.

Im pretty sure they did, they talked about the heavens and the earth. They spoke of the different heavens as in space heaven and the dimensional heaven. Its in the bible where it talks about in the end of days the skys of the heavens will roll up like a scroll.

Just because they probably didnt know how many planets there were or what a nebula or galaxy is doesn't mean they didnt know that concept of space. People back then could get astrology pretty good. You know of architecture that was formed in coordination with the astral signs? Impressive stuff.

No, they didn't. Heaven is just what the word implies. The sky, with clouds and stuff. Of course some stuff is further away, like the sun and the moon, but they had absolutely no concept of the universe as we know it.

Well that's just literally impossible and shows you the infantile understanding that these primitive people had of our world.

That's pretty much exactly what it means. They had no idea other planets even exist.

Not the people who wrote the bible, they were shit at architecture. Also, observing the stars and understanding what they are, are two entirely different things.

These people were idiots compared to the average high school student in 2017. It's not their fault, they did their best to figure things out, but it doesn't change the fact that they were dead wrong about pretty much everything.
