Exodus 7:20 states that in a few seconds the water in the Nile was turned into blood. Modern science says that this is almost impossible based on how it was described in the torah. No chemicals were added. If they were then the were added out of thin air which also contradicts science. So the question is, do people who think that water can be turned into blood also not think science is true?
Edit: After some discussion, I think it's agreed upon that the chances of every molecule of water in the Nile spontaneously turning to blood are very very low. Most Jews accept this, but then assert that God ordered this to happen. So then the question is what are the chances of the existence of a being (God) that could perform such a miracle? So then I think to myself, there is a group of people (Jews) that will believe in God. They believe what is written in the Torah is true and they live their daily lives by it (meaning reciting daily prayers and following Jewish Law, etc..). I think it's really cool that people do this and I completely respect that they carry on a tradition that is thousands of years old. But I need to ask when these same people learn chemistry or physics in schools, what do they think of this knowledge? Do they just disregard it? Because when I learned these subjects, the teacher never stopped to say that these chemical laws can be broken if God intervenes. For full disclosure, I went to a public school so I doubt this would have happened. But from what I understand, some hasidic Jews (Satmar in particular) do not really teach secular subjects in their schools. I guess I have a sub-question then: why would a group of people not want to advance their knowledge of science. I mean, it's very hard to question the Torah when you haven't learned science in school.
I do not mean to be disrespectful in asking this question. I am just curious.
Also, I am just using this one particular point as an example. There are possibly dozens of other places in the Torah that contradict science. I am curious about what orthodox Jews think of science.
