I code stuff with my bare hands.

mholt on Gratipay

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 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.

revised What important Mormon doctrines are taught in the book of Mormon that we couldn't find in the Bible already?

Why was this down voted? I think this is a pretty good question that has actual answers.

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.

comment In Mathew 5:25 what does it mean to be in the way with our adversary?
I think he just cross-ref'ed the Book of Mormon for added context to help the answerer. I'm not sure that the LDS answer would be any different than any general Christian's answer.

comment According to LDS doctrine, what is the source of God's power?
@ShemSeger Do you mean God the Father or God the Son? (As you probably know, in LDS doctrine, the two are distinct. Interestingly, sometimes that distinction isn't significant because the Father and Son are so perfectly unified. However, so far, my preliminary research makes it clear that the Son got all power from the Father, so in this question, the clarification is probably important.)

comment How are spirits born?
You tagged this question lds and if that's the perspective you're looking for, I assume the answer will be "It hasn't been revealed." LDS doctrine isn't heavily concerned with mysteries that hardly pertain to the salvation of souls.

comment Where do Mormons believe heaven is right now?
This is indeed one correct way to interpret the word "heaven" in Mormon doctrine. Also +1 for credible sources.

comment Where do Mormons believe heaven is right now?
@FMShyanguya That article is not only highly accusatory and questionable (poorly researched), it has nothing to do with the question at hand.
