"Now, it is possible that our universe MAY be part of a larger much greater multi-verse. In which case there are lots of other universes potentially with matter in them. Unless you want your definition of universe to include the multi-verse as being **inside** that greater universe, in which case matter cannot exist outside the universe because there IS no outside. Because ALL EXISTENCE is INSIDE. This would also include your god, if any such being or beings exist. So if there is no outside it makes little sense to ask if matter can exist outside in the first place."
There maybe multiverse however they would still be inside of the UNIverse.
Because the universe includes all (not some) yes ALL matter and energy.
Do try and keep up. By the way how's the air in there?
In which case I addressed your concerns while you avoided mine.

The air's fine, I'm nowhere near your head.

In away yes you are correct. God cannot stand the ugliness of sin. Everyone has sinned.
There is only one way to be with God and that is to lose your sins. This can only be done only oneway. And it's FREE!

The Christians never fought the Romans, it was a divine intervention.
Sorry, but there had been no record of divine intervention for centuries before the Christians controlled Rome. And even they were hearsay written at minimum decades later. However that isn't the point, since there was another Roman coup to counter the sudden Christian "empire", which was then countered by a counter-coup by Christians turning Rome Christian once again, until Rome eventually collapsed under Christian rule.

Must have been Divine Intervention.(shrug)

Wishful stroke of the brush. I know these guys, they went into it thinking we are going to have to dig deep to find any issues with the isotope series - not as far as accuracy, but basic long age.
After 7 years work - wham!..the VOR was all off.
That's why Austin is getting past peer review presenting the paper.
After that I will take their word for it, logic is logic and facts are facts.
As far as my lack of knowledge goes, my Geo profs would disagree with you. Take any Geo in school Mike? Pound any rocks? Send any samples in for eval? Look at any core samples? Work underground? How about on 5 continents? Answer the questions for us then pass judgment on me.
Bub, assuming you're not lying about being a miner all you know is how to dig a hole using modern equipment. Oh, and don't forget that all your lying for Jesus is completely undercut by your "scientific premise" of GODDIDIT WITH MAGIC! Oh, and your constant lying for Jesus.

You uh, DID remember this didn't you?

Santa clause IS based on a real person.
No driver of a sleigh with reindeer though, just one of the best most honest, loving and kind people the world has ever seen. Nicholas of Myrna.
A cool thing he did;
From wikipedia -
"In his most famous exploit,[26] a poor man had three daughters but could not afford a proper dowry for them. This meant that they would remain unmarried and probably, in absence of any other possible employment, would have to become prostitutes. Hearing of the poor man's plight, Nicholas decided to help him, but being too modest to help the man in public (or to save the man the humiliation of accepting charity), he went to his house under the cover of night and threw three purses (one for each daughter) filled with gold coins through the window opening into the man's house.[citation needed]
One version has him throwing one purse for three consecutive nights. Another has him throw the purses over a period of three years, each time the night before one of the daughters comes of age. Invariably, the third time the father lies in wait, trying to discover the identity of their benefactor. In one version the father confronts the saint, only to have Saint Nicholas say it is not him he should thank, but God alone. In another version, Nicholas learns of the poor man's plan and drops the third bag down the chimney instead; a variant holds that the daughter had washed her stockings that evening and hung them over the embers to dry, and that the bag of gold fell into the stocking"
Pretty cool guy. The myth is grounded in a real person.
As for nessie, just a fabrication to bring in money!
Are you SURE about that...?

"Divine"? WTF are you failing to express?
If you don't know it was the Romans that was persecuting and killing the Christians until God divinely intervened for the Christians. It is only a liar that can deny that( the truth).

In a more simplified way, God is slow to wrath and anger, that is why people like you can say any thing negative.

Nope. You have not answered the question at all. Just avoided it because it screws you completely.
You say God has free will. Yet God cannot do something today that he did not already know he was going to do today. He has known forever what His future decisions and actions would be, because He knows everything about everything, past present and future.
Therefore God cannot make any new choices. God cannot change his mind and surprise himself with a decision he did not already know he would make since the beginning of time.
God has NO FREE WILL!
Do you?
God is infinite, no doubt about that.
But why some people thinks he is not in existence because he is slow to anger and wrath.
God is perfect and he has his own plan and purpose of achieving the desired ends.
Man proposes but God disposes.
