In the article, several quotations about natural processes from the Bible, Koran and Talmud and some other religious-philisophical treaties are explained. The descriptions are precise and can be correlated to historical records on one hand while some of them use the description of natural processes in order to describe theological aspects on the other. In this case one can not find suitable natural-historical explanation of the event. Our assessment of the comprehension of natural processes by the ancient peoples of the Near East is based on scientific literature and the records in the holy books. We substantiate the explanations with contemporaneous knowledge on natural processes and with the chonology of natural events, known from other sources than holy books. We discuss the following natural phenomena and processes, mentioned in holy books : earth, earthquake, landslide, volcano, ore deposits, geothermic degree, fault, mountain, erosion, isolate rock, sink, storm, spring, flood, drought, natural gas deposits. - (IKR)
