I respond:
I offered to proved Jesus is God by use of impeccable logic and so on, about two weeks ago.
Nobody called me on it.
I would not presume by this math to set up an
Earthly judge of religious law. Jesus' Kingdom is not of this world.
Many persons in the world year more for the fairness inherent in impeccable logic than we yearn for a lot of hairy humans (or bald ones) to pound their robes and pretend to speak for the Creator of the Universe in matters as weighty as civil rights.
Strangely, the Soviet Union and Communist China
didn't mind killing millions strictly for what those persons thought or said. This is more similar to Medieval Christianity or Medieval Islam
than to modern thought.

As the father of Modern Chemistry, Antoine Lavoisier said (paraphrased),"Science is indistinguishable from language." (some years before he was deprived of his life by a phony court in the chaos following the French Revolution.

If both sides in an argument cannot freely criticize the point without fear of physical penalty, science must cower while horrible
thinking comes out to rule.
