As I see it, verse 25 talks about killing a rapist of a married woman,
while v.28 says that the rapist of an unmarried female should give her
father $50 silver and marry her "without a possibility of divorce".
Doesn't make too much sense to me!  And who is reading "hastily" here?

Please try to refrain from threats.  This discussion is suppose to be
very scientific.

Personalities do not really matter.  We should leave them alone.  No
theory can justify killing people.

What Newton et al has to do with four legged locusts?  Is there an
error in Bible or not?

As far as I know, mountains were raising throughout the history of
Earth.  Therefore, there is no problem with sea fossils on the top of
the mountain.

This doesn't contradict the evolution theory, but if you prefer to
invoke the flood to explain it well...

Nothing appeared suddenly.  Artifacts in Egypt can be traced to 5000
BC.  6000 BC bricks were used in Turkey, primitive agriculture was in
Asia Minor in about 10000 BC.  The earliest Japanese pottery is from
10000 BC and Venus of Laussel from 19000 BC.  

No trees older than 5000 years, that is before 3000 BC?  I do not
believe you!  You have to show some evidence!

Writing skills improve with time.  Babylonian's are still older.

Only Ancient Chinese now what they actually depicted on their crocks.

I am not trying to take your beliefs away from you.  It is just not a
good idea to mix science and religion together.  Try to teach the
facts at school, not your beliefs.
