comment The Virgin Mary, “the perfect non-divine human being”
If Mary was not sinless on her own, that would make her a sinner - doesn't that make her exactly the same as any other believer in Christ? Sinless because of Christ's death on a cross?
comment Is it valid to baptize multiple persons at once?
I read your post title and thought I'd throw in an answer, however then read you've added the Catholic tag - does that make any difference? I'd suggest that the Bible doesn't detail 'exactly' how a baptism should take place so it doesn't matter...
comment Why do Young-Earth Creationists make such a big deal about the YEC view
@DavidStratton: I'd ask, does a belief in Creation insist on a belief in a young earth? My understanding is young earth normally means 10k years old based upon timelines constructed from the Bible. The Bible doesn't actually tell us what date the earth was created, but it does tell us how it was created. I personally believe in Creation, but as to whether the earth is 10k years old or so, I don't feel the answer is important to my faith, because someone's tried to calculate it.
comment What happens to unborn, unbaptized babies who die?
@Richard: It says you will receive the spirit, that doesn't necessarily mean saved. Romans 10:9 says "If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." That doesn't include baptism.
comment Does the Bible suggest that the earth is round?
With respect to Matthew 4:8 - It seems the term "world" is sometimes used to mean a limited area, rather than the world as we see it. For example when the census was ordered by Augustus it was ordered for the "Roman world" in some translations, but actually historically it seems to be just a single country that was censused.
comment Atheism is the default position. Isn't the burden of proof on the Christian to assert that God exists?
Indeed you're right, it is, and that is why it is very difficult to convince someone of God's existence via science. It's more through the personal experiences where God really works, which is quite a long way from science.

'Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence', yet unfortunately any such evidence will almost certainly not be revealed, because to do so inhibits freewill.
