comment Sex outside of marriage is a sin. But what about “less than sex”?
oh, whatever. I'm done with this site anyway since there's no room for honest debate here. If you look at the edit history on your post, I did not misquote what was originally written in 2011.

comment How can the sun be created after day and night?
@DanAndrews Yeah, it makes perfect sense... and this is just the first paragraph in the whole book. LOL.

Yes, this one did cross my mind too.

@Richard probably right to move it to EL&U... I was unsure of the source.

@JürgenA.Erhard I think that even might be it! It seems like the same kind of edict you might find in a religious text.

comment Why does God not show Himself beyond reasonable doubt?
Since π is irrational and thus infinitely precise, we could, in theory, discover a series of digits that encodes the bible. Now whether that would be a miracle or just mathematics is open to interpretation.

comment Why is the use of certain common words offensive?
No, I think you misunderstand me: Christians seem very touchy about these words, there are filters on the internet that put asterisks in them, people substitute "heck" in places that don't make sense... it's a question of Christian culture I think, not language.

These are mainly Christian sensitivities. The words are from the bible and the reaction/offense to them is based in Christian standards, I think?

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.)

+1 for those clever quips.

@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.

comment Why does Intelligent Design reject evolution, even intelligently designed and executed evolution?
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. ;-)

Plant life, or life in general could not exist without the light and warmth of the sun.

comment How can the sun be created after day and night?
Do "morning" and "evening" refer to the rising and setting of the sun, or something else?

comment Is Christianity a monotheistic religion?
Christians "believe in only one God" but also believe in Satan among other things. How is God:Satan different from e.g. Brahma:Shiva or Zeus:Hades, which we call polytheistic beliefs?
