King Solomon of Israel circa 970 BC. King Solomon predated Buddha by almost 500 years. Solomon was a man enlightened by the Lord. Solomon understood the workings of the Earth before modern science and satellites. In the first part of Ecclesiastes 1 Solomon is describing a globe. I say this because Buddha claimed to have been approached by a spirit which enlightened him too. He believed that the Earth was flat, and so did most Buddhists until modern science showed them proof that the earth is indeed a round globe. They also believed in the center of the flat earth was a tall and mystical mountain called mount Meru which does not exist. So which man was truly enlightened by God? King Solomon's wisdom still stands true today. All of it. Buddha and Buddhism has no credibility. Choose you today to follow the Lord of Israel who revealed himself in his Son Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Lord made flesh. The same Lord who gave Solomon his wisdom can be your Lord too.
Ecclesiastes 1:1-7 King James Version (KJV)
1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
