comment Did God create the constellations?
@Ray: כימה means "As if one hundred" (כמו מאה) and though I could see how that could be construed as "cluster" I've never heard of the term referring to anything other the the Pleiades. How do you come to the conclusion that the word means "cluster" and not specifically the Pleiades cluster?
comment How did the shadow move back ten steps in 2 Kings 20:8-11?
I don't see any problem with looking for a natural mechanism to explain a divine act. Many of the Bible's phenomenon can be described by natural phenomenon: the plagues of Egypt, the great flood, even Genesis. The question could be rephrased "by which existing natural mechanism did the divine being cause the shadow to move back" just as the divine being used natural mechanisms to cause the plagues of Egypt.
