comment “AD & BC” vs “CE & BCE”
This is an important point when it comes to historical literature. If the generally accepted year of Christ's birth is actually 4 BCE, then it makes no sense for those 4 years BCE when Christ was already born, but we say "Before Christ". In reality these more precise terms really only appear in academic circles.

comment Is Christianity a monotheistic religion?
This is a really great answer. Unfortunately I phrased my question as two parts and the responses here are split on what they answer: you addressed the "other gods are false" part, but quite perfectly. Would you care to offer some thoughts on the second part, that is, given that you acknowledge the existence of Satan and other beings like angels within the bible, on what basis is God a deity and those are not? (Others have said "because He created them" but there must be more to it, since other religions/mythologies have gods creating other gods too.)

@James, if Satan exists then, ergo, you believe in him (fear him, etc.) too. So why is this not a deity in the same sense as Hades?

comment Why does Intelligent Design reject evolution, even intelligently designed and executed evolution?
Your wording is confusing: nobody (I hope) argues that evolution created the universe.

Maybe I misunderstand your perspective, but isn't creation related to cosmology, and evolution to biology?

Don't conflate creation of the universe with [biological] evolution, these are different and separate arguments.

@Travis, facetious and funny. It could certainly mean that, or else "me, first and foremost"... in that case other gods are OK, as long as they're second on the list. ;-)
