comment What were the wise men?
Susan's right, this doesn't really help unless you tell us why you think they were astronomers and that they typically travelled in groups of three. How do you know that? When you say "the Bible says", it's helpful to quote the verse(s), but when you make factual assertions about history it's helpful to show us your source or reasoning.

comment Did Adam and Eve not have sex in the Garden of Eden?
@curiousdannii I'm not sure if I want to apply a metric of plausibility to any part of Gen 1-11. It doesn't seem appropriate to the genre.

comment What does grow up as calves in the stall mean in Malachi 4:2b?
There is some useful logic here but you really need to join the dots a bit more - it reads like a list of unconnected quotes or facts.

comment Did Jesus call God YHWH?
@Mark what is wrong with quoting Wikipedia? There are many very useful links to Wikipedia on this site - they tend to give a useful overview and a route into further research if desired. Indeed I just edited two Wikipedia links into another answer.

another useful answer, thanks! btw if Mark is right about adonai v adoni, it's easy for you to edit your post to make a correction, did you know you can do that?

comment Different meanings of 'Earth' in Genesis 1
This is really really helpful, thanks. If you have time, I'd appreciate a slightly more direct addressing of the question of whether the word has three different distinct meanings in Genesis 1. I've edited in the graphic and some links - if you don't like what I've done please say so or roll the change back.
