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 Are there any archaeological evidences suggesting the existence of the Book of Mormon?
We do know somewhat of other records (see christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/36152/…). If you're asking about things in a museum or something, there is, as far as I know, nothing that is recognized by the LDS Church. But I still maintain that this is a duplicate question (I've linked to 3 others that are essentially the same question.)

Yes, there are written testimonies of 11 other witnesses of the plates. See christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/11895/…. Also, see the Biblical basis for the Book of Mormon: christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/6039/….

The plates were essentially the private journal of their kings and religious leaders. We see several places in the Book of Mormon where it says that the contents would not be disseminated to their people at that time, and that the book was specifically written for our day.

comment Are there any archaeological evidences suggesting the existence of the Book of Mormon?
Then what would you like to see evidence for, if not the events in the book? The plates themselves? Also, I noticed you edited the title of the question to make yours look less like a duplicate, but I still think it's a duplicate. There are plenty of questions about the origin and fate of the plates upon which the Book of Mormon was written.

comment Was Elohim the Saviour and Redeemer of his world?
@thedarkwanderer I think so. Keep reading. "As the Father had done before? He laid down His life, and took it up the same as His Father had done before." Being laid down, then rising up, is resurrection.

@curiousdannii Seems compatible to me.

comment Was Elohim the Saviour and Redeemer of his world?
@ShemSeger These verses speak of God as a resurrected being, which is not the same as being the Savior. Do you have anything to show that Elohim being "the Savior and Redeemer of his world" is a "largely accepted Mormon belief"?

comment Was Elohim the Saviour and Redeemer of his world?
Nice find. Although, this speaks of resurrection; I don't see anything in there about the Father also being a savior Himself, which I think is what @ShemSeger is asking about. (Maybe I misunderstood the question.)

Eh, critiquing the question isn't usually appropriate in the answer

Having read through parts of Handbook 1 on various occasions, I can verify this answer.

comment Doesn't God saying “Adam, where are you?” shows Jesus is not omniscient?
Oh, I don't know about that. Have you ever asked your kids a question you already know the answer to?

comment What is the difference between an Apostate and an Antichrist?
Yes? An apostate is someone who has departed from the church, and an antichrist is one who rejects or counterfeits Jesus or His Gospel. One can leave the church without being antichrist...

comment What are Mormons allowed to discuss about the temple, when not inside the temple?
Typically, asking "what are we allowed to do" in the scope of Christianity is opinion-based, if not off-topic. It's very close to "Is X a sin?" questions.

I'm surprised at how detailed and well-cited the Wikipedia article for Handbook is. It may be of some interest.
