I like to make programs and devices smarter and easier to use. I experiment with new, brilliant interface concepts, data structures, and algorithms. I'm a programmer, web developer, and a Mormon.

comment Having trouble converting
We can't help with personal questions here, but your missionaries can help. Just guessing, but a better question for this site might be, "What happens when a minor wants to join the LDS Church but the parents don't approve?" The answer to that is more factual than pastoral advice. If you revise your question I bet it could be reopened.

comment Did Noah build the Ark in America?
+1 for the extra perspective. I'm not sure the question has a hard-and-fast answer anyway.

@ShemSeger Thanks. I didn't know that.

comment Did Noah build the Ark in America?
Interesting question, but some issues: 1) The verse you cited says it is where Adam will come to visit his people, not necessarily that he lived there. 2) A couple of footnotes lead to verses which suggest that Adam did at least go there, but one of them (117:8) talks about mountains at Adam-ondi-Ahman. There aren't mountains in Missouri, unless they're talking about hills. Also, there's the whole question of Peleg, who was born in the days the Earth was divided -- whatever that means. I would suspect the answer is "we don't know" ...?

comment What does it mean to magnify or glorify the Lord?
+1 for "magnification doesn't make objects bigger, it alters our perception of an object" -- that kinda blew my mind. Well said.

And don't ask that other question, it's already been asked and answered.

comment How do Mormons understand Revelation 22:3?
@NervousNelly Welcome to Stack Exchange, where nearly anyone can edit anyone else's posts. Asking for an LDS interpretation of the NIV doesn't make any sense because the LDS don't read the NIV. I added a link to the full passage so readers can obtain the context of the verse, which is important.

comment Does Mormonism rest on Joseph Smith's credibility alone?
@Yalocreo The answer to your question about what was incorrect is what I edited out. The spliced portions were mostly incorrect and the rest was irrelevant cruft. Hope that helps. If you have more questions about procedure here, you could ask on the meta site.

comment Does Mormonism rest on Joseph Smith's credibility alone?
To help highlight the good parts of the question, I've edited it to narrow it down to something more answerable. I can't guarantee this isn't a duplicate of How is one supposed to know whether or not the Book of Mormon is true? but at least it's more constructive now and cites at least one credible source.

Narrowed it down to a single, more intelligent, answerable question

comment Does Mormonism rest on Joseph Smith's credibility alone?
This question is worded more like an attack on Mormonism (setting up straw man arguments) rather than an intellectual inquiry. I will be happy to edit out the unresearched/incorrect claims for you if you would not like to do it yourself. But as of now, it is not a constructive fit for this site.
