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.

comment Is it valid to use grape juice at Communion?
@MasonWheeler You just blew my mind. That's a great point... and will probably be the topic of my Sabbath studies tomorrow.

comment What exactly does it mean that Jesus Christ is the son of God?
+1 for a well-rounded answer. For more on the LDS perspective of Jesus being the literal Son of God, also see: According to LDS/Mormon teaching, what is the relationship between Jesus and Lucifer? and also this question about the LDS view of the Trinity and who God is.

comment Is there any manuscript or historical evidence to support the final 13 verses of Genesis 50 that appear in the Joseph Smith Translation?
@Narnian The languages, yes, but not the origin of the manuscripts: are you looking for inspired writings (as in, not from any source but God), or translated writings (as in, manuscripts written from other manuscripts)?

comment Do Mormons/LDS believe that the Bible in any way predicts the coming of Joseph Smith?
I do specify that it's in the JST.

@Narnian Valid points, but can we please be clear where manuscripts come from? They're written documents, are they not? Whether you mean manuscripts by way of translation or by way of inspiration, you did not specify. And whether one is inspired will always be subjective depending on the reader of the answer.

@Narnian Translations are written as manuscripts. Do you want pictures of manuscripts, or what are you probing for, exactly? And your question, "Was this translation based on Hebrew manuscripts that had this text?" is a better, clearer question than what you're asking currently.

I don't think this question has a good answer. All the different Bibles we have available today are just translations of the same manuscript copies. So what is the manuscript evidence of those translations of the Bible? Well, obviously, the manuscripts themselves. Maybe I'm unclear as to what is being asked here.

Erm, isn't the JST manuscript itself evidence of existence in the original copies?

@Narnian It's just another translation of some parts of the KJV Bible, and you asked for the LDS perspective. There you have it. To refuse it as a source, considering the context, is to make your question more like pricking with a "prove it my way" attitude, which is not welcome on this site.

But for those denominations which don't believe that both could have been kept (at least, indefinitely)...

Excellent. Thank you for the suggestion!

comment Why couldn't Adam and Eve keep both commandments?
Him, I'll clarify. I am asking why the two commandments couldn't be kept even if they would have kept both. Some denominations which I will not enumerate, for space, believe that Adam and Eve were good bit faced with basically contradictory commandments. Why couldn't they multiply and remain in the garden?
