Debate #1 with Creationism and the Origin of Life

So, there is a group on Facebook called Creationism and the Origin of Life. The admin on this group is pretty much a tyrannical dictator who will delete your posts if he disagrees with you, if you don't capitalise the "G" in the word god (no matter what the context), and has a lot of other ridiculous rules. Anyway, before I get booted from his discussions I decided to at least attempt to debate him. If anyone could help me out with how to respond to some of these posts I would appreciate it.

    • Kyle Richard Wilhelm When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

      Deuteronomy verse in question: "If a man finds a young woman who is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and he seizes her and lies with her, and they are found out, then the man who lay with her shall give to the young woman's father fifty shek...els of silver, and she shall be his wife because he has humbled her; he shall not be permitted to divorce her all his days." (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 New King James Version)

      "The seducer of an unbetrothed virgin was obliged to take her as wife, paying the customary bride price and forfeiting the right of divorce (vv. 28, 29). Probably the father's rights mentioned in Ex 22:17 continued to have precedence." (The Wycliffe Bible Commentary)

      In those days if a woman was not a virgin she had very little chance of ever getting married. As harsh as it may seem to us today, for her to marry him who had "raped" her, I am sure it was far better than the alternatives. For her to have to be single the rest of her life in that society would have been a real disgrace and a hardship. In other countries besides Israel no telling what her chances would have been in her condition. God knew what He was doing by giving this law. "These miscellaneous laws pertain to the sanctity of virginity (vv. 13-21 and the penalties of illicit sexual behavior (vv. 22-30). The latter section is an elaboration of the seventh commandment (Ex. 20:14)." (Spirit Filled Bible)

      Exodus verse in question---This law does not apply to us today, as that is the old law that was in the Old Testament. Back then it was common for people to have slaves. But one thing to note is that the Bible forbids things like racial slav...ery. Approved forms of slavery back then are not the same as the slavery experienced in later centuries. I suggest you have a read at this article for more detailed info: http://www.gotquestions.or g/Bible-slavery.html
