comment Who is the little horn that 'has eyes' and is 'speaking' blasphemous things in Daniel 7?
After careful reading of your answer I've changed my vote. The logic is much easier to follow that I first thought, I think I reacted against the polemic style at first (or perhaps the pre-edit version was a lot different idk). I have one particular request: CAPS are almost universally interpreted as shouting on SE, and aren't that helpful as a form of emphasis. I suggest you use one of the many others.

Very slight change to remove the perception that we are presuming the audience of the site is 100% Christian, hope that's OK Don?

comment Could the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” mean “tree of intelligence”?
So 'knowing' good and evil it not in itself a bad thing (you aren't meaning 'practice' by 'experience')?

So is 'know' in v22 the same sense? ("Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil")

comment Revelation 21:21 - How can gold appear clear?
You are right about the relativistic nature of electrons in Gold, sorry for doubting! Might be good to include this link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… However the Wikipedia link makes clear that the effect is from the adsorption of light at the blue end of the spectrum: nothing about this effect causes transparency of any degree.

comment How would stoning of an adulterer actually be carried out under the Law of Moses?
Monica, the question isn't about cases that got to court: Jim thinks that ad hoc executions "are done by mob justice and hence extra judicial" so "Those who did it are actually committing murder". I don't think this is necessarily the case, quite unlike justice in the modern western world at least.
