comment Does Jewish tradition predate Christian tradition in any meaningful way?
Were there Christians before Christ? I thought most people in Jerusalem were Jews, (perhaps a few atheists, Roman, and other assorted religions here and there) and Christianity evolved from Judaism via the Jesus movement?

comment What is the physical evidence for a local flood?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sea_deluge_theory. I am not sure if it should be called a theory though, thus I more cautiously call it a hypothesis.

comment Is God's name Yahweh or Jehovah?
I would go to the Jewish stack exchange, or ask a Rabbi or scholar of ancient languages, since the word and language predate Christianity.

comment How can suffering from natural causes be reconciled with an omnimax god?
@Fabian great point. How about this: The universe is a system. God designed the system to work a certain way (e.g it includes pain and suffering). God intended it to work this way. Building a system with pain and suffering is questionable to you and I. Therefore you and I must not be equipped to understand God's rational for the system design. This makes some sense considering he is supposed to be omniscient. Personally though, what I wrote above is a "will of god" type answer and I think that type of answer is often abused. I recommend looking outside Christianity for an answer.
