Yes, Bible Is Good For Moral But Obsolete For Learning Nature.

Yes, as we do not have ethic education, religion fills the vacuum with 10 commandments: do not kill, steal, etc.

But as to knowledge - there is not much in Bible, especially to take in account that it was written by people 2-3 thousand years ago - how much knowledge did they have about nature?

So, I would say that if you want to stay on that level of knowing Nature, then the Bible is enough.

But if you want to learn a little more about nature than it was known to ancient people - then Bible is way obsolete. Go to scool, read textbooks and encyclopedias.
