comment Have Creationists advanced any particular Theories of Origin that they claim are falsifiable via the scientific method?
@DickHarfield: I don't think I can answer that question for you. It's a judgment call only you can make. If I was going to answer the question, the answer wouldn't look much at all like yours, so in that sense, I could say a delete (and possible rewrite) would be my course of action. But that doesn't mean it's the only way to go.

@DickHarfield: I think much of what you wrote (but not all) is pretty accurate, but doesn't really address the question.

comment What is the Catholic understanding of omnipotence?
I have attempted to clarify the question a bit. I hope I haven't altered your meaning. If I have, feel free to roll back my edit.

@WalterMitty: And versions of that theory still persist (particularly the idea of an infinite Big Bang/Big Crunch cycle).

comment To use or not use portable receptacles for baptism?
@DoubleU: I saw that part, and it confused me, considering that I've never seen a portable Jacuzzi, but I have seen portable tubs and baptismals.

comment To use or not use portable receptacles for baptism?
@fredsbend: I could understand that, but tubs and baptismals aren't "natural water bodies".

comment Can God kill himself?
@MelgoV: Yes. That is the basis of my answer linked above. "Omnipotence is the quality of having unlimited power." Unlimited power means exactly that: Unlimited power. Not "the ability to contradict logic." Did you read the second part of that article, which addresses precisely that point?

comment Can God kill himself?
@TheFreemason: It is a philosophical question, and it would be appropriate to VtC as off-topic, but VtCed as a dupe, because we already have a question that effectively answers this one (and any other question about "Can God do [any thing that might be considered impossible]?" and I prefer to point a new visitor in the right direction, when possible, rather than simply shut down their question

comment Can God kill himself?
@MelgoV: That's not what "almighty" means. Being almighty does not make it possible to do the impossible. Being almighty means you can do anything which can be done.

comment Do Christians believe that Jews must still follow the Mosaic law?
Which Christians? I think most Christians would say that it doesn't matter. But there might be some who have an opinion on this... for us to address it, it needs a doctrinal scope.

comment How do we know the words accredited to Jesus were the words Jesus actually spoke?
Because we all know that voting defines the truth.

Simple answer: We don't. There are varying opinions on how accurate these words are, or even can be.

@TheFreemason: I didn't see you asking a question. Perhaps your punctuation (. rather than ?) confused me.

comment Is creationism falsifiable?
@TheFreemason: The question is tagged as young-earth-creation, which implies the OP is seeking an answer from their perspective, which is entirely on-topic. Further, we do permit questions asking for scientific theories as they relate to creationism.

comment To use or not use portable receptacles for baptism?
Why aren't they held in a Jacuzzi -- Seriously, this is your question? Obvious answers: 1) Jacuzzis aren't big enough 2) Jacuzzis are far more expensive, and for no gain (who needs hot water massage streams for a baptism?)

comment Was Jesus crucified naked?
As worded, this is a truth question. If you want to re-word it to ask "What evidence is there that Jesus was crucified with or without clothes?" I think it would be better.
