I code stuff with my bare hands.

I like to make programs and devices smarter, and easier to use. I experiment with new, brilliant interface concepts. I'm a programmer, designer, web developer, and a nice guy.

I believe choices make us who are, and are a major part of how we and others feel.

comment What does the LDS Church (Mormon) teach about marriage and polygamy in the afterlife?
Are you sure? I'm pretty sure the "more righteous women than men" part is speculation and isn't doctrinal. Please add reliable LDS sources.

See also this question about the use of the term "Eternal Father" referring to Jesus.

@davidbrainerd is right. There isn't much of an answer here that's interesting. It appears that the first edition had typos. New editions of the LDS scriptures are pretty regular occurrences, even as recently as 2013.

comment Stars in the sky
This question isn't about Christianity. You might try asking the Space Exploration or Physics SE site if stars were visible at night when the earth was thought to have been formed.

comment LDS Church and Genealogy Research (What is the connection?)
@warren I used to work in one of the Ancestry.com buildings (different floor) and my cousin currently works at Ancestry.com in their main building by the Provo River. My other cousin also used to work at Ancestry.com. Further, a friend of mine works in the main datacenter under BYU which hosts/hosted much of the Church's content, and there is no Ancestry.com content there. Ancestry.com is most certainly an entity separate from the LDS Church.

Then they were mistaken. "While the company had been offering free access to Ancestry.com at LDS Family History Centers, that service was terminated on 17 March 2007 because of the inability to reach a mutually agreeable licensing agreement between TGN and the LDS Church." ... "In October 2012, Ancestry.com agreed to be acquired by a private equity group consisting of Permira Advisers LLP, members of Ancestry.com's management team, including CEO Tim Sullivan and CFO Howard Hochhauser, and Spectrum Equity for $32 per share or around $1.6 billion." see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancestry.com

@warren That's simply not true. The Church's genealogical organization is FamilySearch, not Ancestry.com.
