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, data structures, and algorithms. I'm a programmer, web developer, and a Mormon.

comment Where did the dates at the bottom of the pages in the Book of Mormon come from?
Just as a side-note to keep this question current: the approximate dates are now printed in chapter headings instead of in the bottom corner of pages.

comment Why did God create the idea of opposites?
Can we salvage this question by focusing it a bit, about the spiritual necessity for opposing forces or concepts, perhaps, without being a duplicate?

comment Is there any biblical basis for believing in the Book of Mormon?
+1 for a remarkably fair, Christian answer. Christ would often answer difficult questions with rhetorical questions, and this answer does similarly by inviting one to personally examine and be his own judge.

comment Is there a respectful way to dispose of old or worn out scriptures?
@Narnian For some books, that'll definitely be good. And again, and I'll emphasize what my question says, donating isn't always appropriate because of my personal notes in them, or my name engraved, etc. I can digitize the notes/markings to preserve them, but keeping the whole set of scriptures can get unwieldy, especially when moving...

comment What is a mission trip?
Good question. And "mission trip" is not to be confused with "mission" (which is what Mormon missionaries go on for 18-24 months, for example).

comment Does Revelation 22:19 apply to the whole Biblical canon or only the Book of Revelation?
Hm, that auto comment is interesting. This isn't exactly a duplicate but at least be pointed to that question as Mormons certainly have had to explain that verse.

possible duplicate of How do Mormons view the warning in Revelation about adding to the book?

comment How does the LDS Church handle verses that imply there is no one like God?
@Jeff Probably for the same reasons that parents say "Because I said so" is why God makes no other gods our concern: because He said so.

+1 for prisons (and implicitly, hospitals) -- as Christ went to the captive and the sick to free them and heal them.

comment Is there a respectful way to dispose of old or worn out scriptures?
I'll upvote it because it's definitely a good idea, and wholly Christian. My only concern is that my personal notes and markings are in some of these... but for the unmarked ones, definitely!

comment How does the LDS Church handle verses that imply there is no one like God?
@Narnian Haha, yes, I'm already on vacation. And the questions aren't bad... they just aren't discussed among Latter-day Saints much and tread close to the "speculation zone" which they try to avoid since LDS are very particular about true doctrine. But I think many Saints wonder on these things occasionally.
