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 Why did God create man with an evil nature?
Specifics depends on the denomination. God endowed man with the power to choose. As Narnian said, mankind chose rebellion. Ability to choose rebellion doesn't mean it will be chosen (cf. the life of Jesus Christ). People in heaven may be able to choose evil, but they won't want to. We say Jesus didn't have in Him the capacity to sin because He would never choose to, even though He had the ability to. But that is another topic.

comment What does it mean that Eve was beguiled?
@DavidStratton Are there any Christian denominations with at least some understanding of this then?

comment What does it mean that Eve was beguiled?
+1, because how did she already know she was beguiled? I've always wondered this.

comment What are the differences between Mormonism and Islam, and how do Mormons react to comparisons with it?
+1 for a thorough, interesting question. Just one comment about the quoted claim. To me, that's like knowing that a Camry has two axels, a steering wheel, headlights, and doors, then comparing it to a Ford truck, saying: "They both have two axels, a steering wheel, headlights, and doors, so they must both be the exact same type of vehicle!"

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.
