"Since there can be no evidence for something that can't be measured, is it at least fair to say that there is no empirical evidence for god, and therefore no reason to believe he exists?"
If there is no reason to believe something that can't be measured, why would anyone believe that "there is no reason to believe something that can't be measured"? This argument is self-defeating. If we accept it, we must apply it to itself. Once we apply it to itself, we see that it does not meet its own criteria. Then, we must reject it. In other words, if we accept your argument, we must reject your argument on its own terms. I hope this is clear. God bless.
"How did we get here? Where did we all come from?"
The Bible teaches that God, through His Son, Jesus, the Word of God, specially created all things, including humanity (Gen 1, John 1:3). Of humanity, God first created a man, named Adam, and then a woman, whom the man named Eve. God then breathed life into them. They both lived for close to a thousand years, and had numerous children between them, some of whom are also named in scripture (Gen 4:1-2; Gen 4:25; Gen 5:3-4). From these original people, all of us are descended.
"Did Jesus preach non-violent submission?"
Jesus preached faith in Himself. Sometimes, this involves non-violent submission. Other times, it involves the use of violence and uprising. Christ taught that He Himself was God in the flesh (John 6:51-54, 8:58, 10:30, 14:7-9). This means that according to Him, His teachings and God's teachings are one-in-the-same (John 5:19). Therefore, if God commands either non-violent submission, or violent uprising, then Jesus also commands these same things.
