comment Was prostitution legal in the Kingdom of Israel during the reign of Solomon?
The question is weakened by the phrase "Most .... Christians would argue... " historical analysis is be valid without regard to the religion of the person presenting the argument. I think the answer is far less controversial than you present; today prostitution is illegal but common. I suspect that in whichever period of the history of Israel you're analyzing the same is true.

Question is still out of scope, but the capitalization was driving me up a tree.

comment Could a citizen in Nazi Germany sue the government or doctors over the eugenics program?
I'm not sure that Nuremberg is relevant to the question. OP asks about a suit brought against the Nazi state by someone living in the Nazi state. The Nazi state would have not recognized the authority of the Nuremberg trials.

comment How did South Korea become one of the most developed nations on Earth?
My entire (agonizingly boring) college curriculum consisted of Professors offering their opinions about why some nations develop and others don't. If @Rohit were correct, then my college would have to close down. This question (a) requires a book length answer (b) the resulting book would be an opinion in competition with the seventy seven Quintillion books published each year on the subject and (c) would instantly win the Fields medal in economics. We simply don't know why some countries manage economic development successfully and others don't.

comment Could a citizen in Nazi Germany sue the government or doctors over the eugenics program?
I think the question contains an invalid assumption about the relationship of the citizen and the state in National Socialism/Fascism. The citizen didn't have rights independent of the state - the role of the citizen was to support the state. Fascism is a reaction to the perceived excesses of liberal democracy - which at the time included concept such as "citizenship" and "rights" that were not present in Fascism.

comment Why was Otto Von Bismarck NOT a unifying figure in the 19th century?
Wilhelm did not want to be the German Emperor - he consented to be "Emperor of the Germans"; that might be a place to start. Other things to contemplate - who opposed unification? What happened to the Junkers?

comment Did the Huns contribute to the Great Migration of Germanic Peoples into the Western Empire?
It is an excellent podcast - the value is proportional to the proximity to Britain, but the host is very explicit about that.
