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 What Biblical justifications are used for having separate denominations
Very similar, but definitely different: Why are there so many different denominations in Christianity? and Was Christianity intended to have denominations?.

comment How does the relationship compare between earthly children and spiritual children in LDS theology?
That word is more common in LDS theology, so it's definitely better. Just realize that, in LDS scriptures (Moses 1:35), God gave even Moses only a vision of the inhabitants of this world, so most remarks on other worlds are mere speculation, not doctrine.

"For their own planet" is a foreign concept to Mormons. Planets, in general, are not really well understood in Mormon doctrine, so maybe try to abstract your questions away from "planets."

comment According to the LDS church, why was Jesus Christ born when he was born?
+1 great question. The symbolism is striking. Interesting that Christ was born prophetically "in the meridian of time." What of a Savior who was not born central to time and all creation?

I don't have time to be on the chat, but in the interest of improving this answer, @MormonInvestigator feel free to email me and I'd be happy to suggest a few changes and tell you more about where I'm coming from. It will also be good for me to better understand your perspective.

@fredsbend Yes, you're right. Moroni buried the plates after about 421 A.D., but I am saying that they are apparently no longer buried.
