comment What are the rules for inheritance for women?
@KevinNelson No, that's not what Canon Law is.

There is Canon Law about inheritances, but not in the Creeds.

The Catholic Creed is the same as any other (notwithstanding the filioque controversy). Could you be more specific?

comment Does Catholic doctrine teach that the Incarnation would have taken place regardless of Adam's decision?
This doesn't answer the question asked (which was specifically about Catholic doctrine); and to say Adam was God Incarnate is probably blasphemous: "Let us make Man in our image", not "Let us make us as Man".

comment Is the Summa Theologia infallible to Catholics or not?
Just a note: Magisterium is an abstract noun, meaning the whole of the teaching authority of the Church. It's continuous, the Magisterium: there are not more than one. (You can't have "some Magisterium or other")

comment How is the teachings in the Book of James consistent with Salvation by Grace alone?
The whole point is that he doesn't, as my answer there demonstrates. It's not a duplicate question, but the answer (and the other answers linked from it) is entirely relevant.

comment What is omitted from the current Western, Catholic Psalter?
OK: So you're saying that the Breviary customarily omits verses from the selection of psalms it uses, and you want to know which ones? Might be another question for Martin Kochanski!

comment What is omitted from the current Western, Catholic Psalter?
Are you sure Ps 110 has that verse? Or did you mean Ps 136/137, where it's v9? And which numbering system? And, indeed, which psalter? (The Breviary uses the Grail Psalter, which is complete)

comment What is the theological justification for only the priest drinking the wine in a Catholic Mass?
@curiousdannii Yes: it's no longer just wine.

Yes: you're right; it's 85 that I should have found -- which cross-references to 283. I've removed the other comments; sorry for muddying things.

It's worth stating here that communion is usually administered in both kinds in Catholic Masses, too.

comment Monotheistic, but multi-instantiated?
A Google search for what of those who have never heard yields many, many hits, including not a few books. [The short answers are: We need to tell them; and, God will always act justly.]

comment Does the New Testament have any mention of Kolob and if not, how come?
I don't agree that Kolob is one of the deeper mysteries of God.

comment Can one be atheist even if you still pin your hope on Jesus?
"Agnosticism is about knowing [or not knowing, perhaps!] and a/theism is belief." That's exactly what I said.

comment Who tells us that the whole Bible is inspired?
Interesting how many notable and memorable 3:16 verses there are!

comment Can one be atheist even if you still pin your hope on Jesus?
An atheist has a positive belief there is no God. Someone who is not convinced that there is no God (that is, who admits there is a possibility that God exists) is an agnostic. Subtle difference, maybe; but a difference.

comment Can one be atheist even if you still pin your hope on Jesus?
I don't understand the question. "If one day I decided to go through with the notion..." -- sorry, but what notion? I'm afraid the question is almost stream-of-consciousness. Could you re-write it in shorter sentences?

comment `Art thou that prophet?` do they mean the Prophet Mohammad?
No, it means that your assertion is wrong. While they may have asked about another person (and indeed they did: the prophet in Deut 18), John interpreted Deut 18 to refer to the Messiah, so he answered "No". What we can't know from this verse is who the priests thought Deut 18 referred to.

comment `Art thou that prophet?` do they mean the Prophet Mohammad?
Not necessarily; they may simply have asked "Really?" and sought confirmation. I think I would recommend a question on MiYodeya about who the prophet foretold in Deut 18:15 is thought to be (but don't ask the leading question "Is it Mohammed?" -- just ask who it is).
