comment What reasons does Christianity give for “Why There Must Be A God?”
There are scientific theories on the evolution of sexual reproduction, just because you can't think of a way it might have happened doesn't mean it is impossible. And your remark about Hawking is tasteless and disgusting, I recommmend you remove that entirely.

comment How should a Christian relate to pseudoscience?
Most physicists I've seen commenting on the neutrino experiment expect this to be a measurement error, it's not sufficient evidence yet to call special relativity into question. And while a confirmation of these results would have enormous effects on our current understanding of physics, it wouldn't invalidate everything we know. Any new theory would need to explain all previous observations as well as the old theory, our current models are still very useful because they can predict a lot of physics, even if they were not completely correct in the end.

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 How did all the animals fit into Noah's ark?
But you are arguing that out of these "kinds" multiple species evolved later, that is the very definition of evolution.

I find the use of evolution in the answer curious, as the christians taking the accounts of Noah's flood literal very often also don't believe in evolution.

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.

comment How did all the animals fit into Noah's ark?
@Mark I added the first paragraph because I didn't want to imply that all christians believe in a literal flood. There is a significant number of christians that take the bible literally, those would obviously also take Noah's ark literally. There have even been written whole books about the feasibility of the ark

@Mark We have some questions on this site about Noah's flood, with users of this site assuming that the flood happened as it was written in the bible. So there are obviously christians that believe that the ark was built and all the animals were saved on it.

comment Can I believe in evolution and still be a Christian?
On talkorigins is a rebuttal of your magnetic field, sun and moon arguments, but I don't understand why the current population should be evidence of a young earth. I also haven't seen any convincing evidence of dinosaurs living with men.

comment What is the physical evidence for a global flood?
There is a more plausible explanation for the fossils on the mountains, the earth changed a lot in the time after the fossils were deposited, that mountain might have been the bottom of an ocean in that time.
