comment How can suffering from natural causes be reconciled with an omnimax god?
I'm not seeing how that would be a duplicate of my question, the answers are somewhat similar but the questions are completely different.

But your dentist is not omnipotent, he cannot achieve the positive effects without the pain. God is supposed to be omnipotent, he should be able to achieve any positive effect he wants without being forced to accept any negative side effects.

comment Where does the belief that the Earth is relatively young (6000 years) come from?
The potassium-argon method is a radiometric dating method, calling it chemical dating is wrong and very misleading. Those methods rely on nuclear decay, that is pure physics, it has nothing at all to do with chemistry.

comment How does the Bible explain the existence of fossils that are millions of years old?
The age of fossils is not just an assumption, we can measure the age of them using radiometric dating.

There is just so much wrong with this answer, for one it is radiometric dating, not chemical dating and the confounding factors are pretty well known and corrected for. The problems with the other parts Marc already mentioned. Your Virginia comparison is also deeply misleading, as the maximum population of Earth is certainly not the number of people you can just fit on there.
