comment Is it possible for The Bible to contain errors?
@curiousdannii - Thanks for the info. As to the downvote, I'm sorry you feel this is so obvious it is not useful. I feel it is obvious to me, but some of the people I've spoken with here seem to think otherwise, hence the question. :\

comment Are there any statistics that show how many scientists are Christians or otherwise believe in a personal God?
It's not actually against SE policy to post questions whose answer may change over time — a great many valid questions fall under this category on all the sites. Indeed, if you believe Biblical interpretations do not change over time, you have an interesting perspective on the history of Christianity. The "rapidly changing event" post notice is for events currently going on which have a distinct beginning and end, not the never-ending variation in the percentage of PhD-holding Christians in a population over time. That said, given the help center guidelines, this is probably not on-topic. :)

comment Is there any Biblical basis for hating homosexuals?
If we are taught to love everyone, why does God kill lots of people? Also, if God made everyone, he must have made the people he kills as well, which seems silly because he obviously knew how they would behave when he made them in the first place. How does one reconcile God's clearly irrational and violent behavior in the Old Testament with his noticeably softer approach in the New Testament? You say God wants us to love everyone, but sometimes it sure doesn't seem like it in the Bible...

comment Is there any Biblical basis for hating homosexuals?
A larger problem I have with your answer is that you quote a wide range of Biblical passages out of context to support your claims, many of which do not directly support what you are saying. Take the first sentence, for example: "Hatred should not be shown towards anyone." A quote from the Bible saying "For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God" does not mean that no one should show hatred to anyone. It means that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God... The context of that passage talks about Israelites and non-Israelites being equal...

In your very last sentence, you write "For he is the one to deliver the death penalty". I'm presuming you mean to capitalizing the "he" to "He", implying God is the one to deliver the punishment. What you quote (both as you wrote it and in the Bible itself, "let HIM throw a stone..." is uncapitalized, implying not God doing the throwing but a human being. So that quote would suggest that — in whatever example of punishment that is referring to — humankind should deliver the punishment...
