Leviticus 17:14 says that “life is in the blood.” This is true because the red blood cells carry oxygen to the body and sustain life. If a person loses too much blood, life also is lost. We didn’t always know this, however. How did the “father of our country” George Washington die? He was bled to death. In his day, it was standard medical procedure to release toxins from the body by bloodletting. Anyone who was a doctor knew this to be a proven fact. Anyone not fully accepting of this practice was ridiculed as “not a reputable scientist.” Sound familiar today regarding Darwinism and the global warming debate? Well, it turns out doctors didn’t really know what they “knew” they knew (too late for our first President, however). The real question is, how did Moses know this way back around 1500 B.C.? God (the inventor of blood and all life) told him so.
