comment Is religious pluralism viable in Christianity?
As Spurgeon wrote, "Never make a Christ out of your faith, nor think of it as if it were the independent source of your salvation. Our life is found in “looking unto Jesus,” not in looking to our own faith. By faith all things become possible to us, yet the power is not in the faith, but in the God upon whom faith relies." Faith in Jesus is the only faith that matters, according to Jesus.

comment Why are bibles sold for profit?
Not all Bibles are even sold, let alone for a profit. The Gideons International is an organization that exists to give away Bibles. Bibles Unbound is another program that exists to give away Bibles all over the world. Many organizations print Bibles to give away. There is also a market for them in the Christian world, so some are sold for a profit. However, it's all a matter of supply and demand. Bibles on the black market in Soviet Russia sold for a mint. I'm not sure this question is appropriate, though, as it ignores the fact that many Bibles are not sold at all.

comment How can a Christian effectively explain the seeming contradiction between Gen 1:31 and Gen 6:6?
What God created was good, especially mankind--free moral agents with the capacity to love. Inherent in the capacity to love is to capacity to reject. Their choice was wrong, but having choice and freedom is certainly good.

comment What scientific arguments are there to support Young Earth Creationism?
This answer is full of false assertions. Basically, everyone who doesn't agree with your perspective is dumb or stupid or biased. Everyone who agrees with you is scientific. That's ridiculous and extremely biased.

comment What is the basis of the LDS teaching that the angel Michael became Adam?
@BrianRushton Well, I'm sorry to say that I don't remember everything I read or even everything I write. I guess I was aware of this at that time. I do remember the Adam God theory, but I do not recall the Adam Michael theory.

comment What is the reason and meaning of the symbols on the garments worn by Temple-worthy LDS members?
@Matt In David Delong's answer, he cites a website about the endowment ceremony--ldsendowment.org. I've been reading through it, and it's quite interesting. Of particular note is that the author, apparently an active LDS member, comes from the perspective that sacred does not mean "secret". He actually divulges quite a bit about the ceremony. So, perhaps there is more than one perspective on this, and at least some LDS members feel that they can answer this type of question.
