Torah The Amazing Bible Story .
Bible scholars are quick to say that the Bible is NOT a book of science, but when it speaks about nature it is not unscientific in its descriptions like other religious works. For example, the Bible does not say that the world sits on the shoulders of an elephant (Hindu Amarasimha), or a giant turtle (Hindu, Chinese and native Americans) or on the shoulders of Hercules (Greek).
The Bible says that the earth hangs on nothing (Job 26: 7) and is a circle (Isaiah 40: 22).
However, these apologists cannot make the same claim for this story which is an example of the "stupid Bible" according to atheists who mock the Bible.
And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white appear which was in the rods. And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink. And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted. And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's cattle. And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods. But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's. And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses (Genesis 30: 37-43 KJV)
So the apologists' explanation is to say that God did not tell Jacob to this. Jacob did it on his own based on some local superstition and God "met him where he was". Meaning that God honored his request despite his clinging to superstition.
However, there are problems with this position.

Atom The Science Pattern Design And Laws

Science Torah Science: Jacob's Spotted And Striped Stick (Genesis 30: 37-43)
The Bible has some strange stories about acquiring life (salvation) by looking at something with spots and stripes or broken pieces.
Jacob accomplished a genetic change by having his animals look at the change he wanted to accomplish. He carved white stripes in a stick and planted the stick in the water where the animals came to drink. The offspring of the animals turned spotted and striped if the parents looked at a spotted and striped stick while they were mating (Genesis 30: 37-41).
The actual design of his stick does not matter. What matters is the words used for the legal description.
Every name used is either a scientific term or a word form the Bible story.

Until now, Bible scholars have only been able to recognize scientific statements that the Bible has made about the macro world that anyone can see with their own eyes. The realm of the microscopic and subatomic world have only been relegated to the human gods of modern science. Every detail is based in microscopic science only unraveled in 1953.
How did the author of Genesis, writing 3500 years ago about an event that happened 4000 years ago, know about the details of the structure and function of DNA discovered in 1953?

Science The Pattern Of Water And Fire
Anytime God acts to heal His people He does it in a pattern of DNA replication and repair. Water and fire seems to be the bookends to a system that manages life. They point to extreme interventions by God to save the righteous.

Jesus The Messianic Prophecy: Jesus' Cross In the Sea Of People
God taught me the Messianic prophecy first before He revealed the Bible science. If we use the language of prophetic symbols we find that Jesus's death on the cross symbolized the DNA structure.

Water, spots and stripes, knots and coils combined with copying or looking at a twin image all point to a system that involves changing the inner man.

Theory Theory. I believe that there may be cures that can be done by looking at the right object or series of objects. We can definately demonstrate that watching certain behaviors tends to change a culture. The Bible says that "by beholding ... we become changed". But I am not simply proposing changes through example or learned behavior. Certain flashing light sequences can cause seizure. We can influence mood by the color of a room. So there are cures than can be administered through the eyes.

The History Of The Science
The mechanism of modern genetics was discovered between 1856 and 1953.

The Foolishness Of God Is Wisdom. For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will set aside. Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of the age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? (1 Corinthians 1: 19) Time: 60 Minutes
