The respiratory system is the first part of the anatomy mentioned in the Bible. According to the scriptures, Adam was a formed organism made from material from the earth, but he was not living until God breathed into his nostrils.
Let’s look at the anatomy of respiration. With a normal inspiration, about one pint (500 cc) of air is moved into and out of the lungs with each breath taken. Approximately 16 breaths are taken per minute, totaling 23,040 times each day, moving about 3,000 gallons (12,000 liters) of air per day through the lungs.
