In Hebrews 11:3, scripture speaks of invisible building blocks of matter, which we now know to be molecules, atoms, quarks; objects so small they cannot be seen. This verse suggests an understanding of scientific truth that may been a part of Greek philosophical theory, but would not have been “known” as true in such early times.

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
