Scientists are the worst people to trust with reference to the bible, they dont believe in religion anyways, an academic is a much better placed person to say if the bible is wrong or right.. ..
But then again, its more likely the bible has been reinterpreted by different scholars over the centuries..
It's a matter of translation.
If you want a decent translation, you have to go with the more recent Bibles.
Problem is that people are hung up on the King James Version, which has any errors of translation.
We do have ancient copies of most of the Bible to go by. The New Testament "originals" are all from a century or more after Jesus' death, but The Dead Sea Scrolls, and the other texts, are old enough that the reinterpretations you mention would have had to occur in ancient times.
The Bible is a book made by many humans , what they saw or what they heard at the time. Also , did you know that Jesus came to the most evil humans at the time to try and change them to good ? ( Jews ) and He died... for all of us.
Edit : The only good things from the Bible that must be applied now so we cannot become animals, are the 10 "rules" and 7 "sins". 17 Rules you must not break , the most dangerous one is PRIDE. Also there is a rule that says , "don't drink (alcohol)" , it should be changed to "don't get drunk" but i guess it's fool-poof since a very long time ago.
