comment How does the Catholic Church explain their belief that Jesus picked faulty Peter to build upon?
@JayarathinaMadharasan probably wouldn't hurt to add a (non-scriptural) source or two.

The meta commentary at the top of this post is completely unnecessary and should be removed. Please edit to keep this on topic. Thanks.

comment Why should the book of Enoch be considered canonical?
Glad to see you doing this, but one quibble, you've got the answer in the question. You'll need to ask the question first, and then post your answer as an answer to it (which is totally fine and highly encouraged!)

comment Would the *Christians* of the time of Timothy and Paul find Yoga Pants or Bikinis immodest?
You realize that considerations of modesty are largely contextual, right? In other words what the general populace thought was modest/immodest would be reflected in what Christians thought. Also, I'm not sure it's really legitimate to ask hypothetical questions about what people might have thought about clothing that wasn't even invented until thousands of years later. All that to say, what's the real issue here?

comment What is the status of Catholics who reject Vatican II? Are they considered heretics?
@gideonmarx have you read the help center? "You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face."

Generally it's better to ask questions you have a stake in and that you've spent some time looking into.

Could you tell us a bit more about what exactly you want to find out, why it's important to you, what you already know on the subject etc?

comment Can Man see God?
I've added the biblical basis tag to this question because that's the minimum required to make this on topic (which is what you're asking). But I'll warn you right now that you may not get what you're looking from a pure biblical basis alone, you're likely to want/need additional sources to unpack this for you. if that's the case you may want to consider additional scoping to determine which sources you consider authoritative and which ones you consider to be quacks (generally a denomination is helpful shorthand for this)

comment What does Revelation 19:12-16 mean?
"I don't care what denomination it comes from" is pretty much "please close my question. Denominations are collections of theologies, if you don't care about the theology behind the answer you get, then you're probably in the wrong place.

@Hello whether or not someone is or is not of a particular faith is irrelevant to their ability to answer a question on a topic.

comment How does the Catholic Church reconcile evolution with original sin?
Worth noting that all scientific findings are phrased as theories. To scientists saying Evolution is a theory is the same as saying that Newton's laws are theories. Are they subject to evaluation and interpretation, sure! (see: relativity). Are they something that scientists have any doubt about at all? not so much. The use of the word "Theory" is science for "something we understand well enough to say we're sure"
