comment Why is it usually easier to do things the wrong or unethical way than to do things the right way?
And how is that not a win-win?

comment What does the Bible say about the appearance of angels?
Interesting. Do you know of any depictions of cherubim in Christian art?

comment Why are some people born into famine and starvation?
Re: "He can choose to allow terrible things to occur in order to bring about a greater good later.". But since he is omnipotent, could he not bring about the greater good without the terrible things? While I realise it would be impossible to stop us from harming eachother while still allowing us to have free will, he should surely be able to prevent suffering that is not human-made, like natural disasters and so on?

comment Where does the belief that the Earth is relatively young (6000 years) come from?
@Jonathon Byrd: Unsourced claims are much more likely to launch debates.

I think this should be reworded. Right now it comes off as a bit preachy. This site is supposed to answer factual questions about christianity, not to address whether or not these are true. It would be better to describe this objectively. Many of the "scientific" claims here are not widely accepted by the scientific community. They should not be stated as fact. However it's fine to state that these views are generally accepted by young earth creationists, as that is likely a fact. Also, some sources would be nice.

@RiverC: I think a short summary of how those clues are used to calculate this number would make a great addition to your answer, if you have the time and knowledge to do so.
