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.

I'm an address validator.

Could you split your question into two? They're very different topics.

Once again, Mason, you've outdone yourself. Excellent answer, and well-cited.

comment St. Thomas Aquinas' contingency proof and LDS cosmology
I don't have sources for right now, but the answer would simply be something like: "That hasn't been revealed, and our minds can't comprehend it anyway."

comment Why is death a vital piece of God's plan in LDS theology?
@Anonymous As in, we can use all scripture to learn doctrine and instruction (I think implied even if the source is other scripture).

comment Why is death a vital piece of God's plan in LDS theology?
@Anonymous This might be better its own question, but real short version is: you're right. It's kind of the reverse of most of Christianity. The LDS church believes doctrine to be living, that is, continuing to be revealed. The Book of Mormon is the keystone of this belief (not the cornerstone, who is Christ). If the Book of Mormon is false, the entire LDS Church goes down with it. That's kind of what I was getting at. It's a faith thing more than scholarly thing.

@Anonymous Thank you. 2 Timothy 3:16-17: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

comment Why is death a vital piece of God's plan in LDS theology?
@Anonymous Of course. That's what makes LDS theology so interesting. The doctrine itself is the wall against which the Book of Mormon has to make its stand. On that thought, I'd be interested to see Biblical passages which help to answer this question, so that it can apply to a more general Christian audience.

@Anonymous -- That's fitting, though, since he is asking this whole question in the context of LDS theology.
