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 In Mormonism, how is the doctrine of Adam & Eve inability to have children prior to the Fall explained?
Also, I just noticed that it seems that people--myself included--tend to say that Adam and Eve couldn't have children in the garden, yet the Book of Mormon says wouldn't have had children. Does anyone know of any place in scripture that actually says they couldn't have children there? Maybe there's another simple explanation that I'm overlooking.

When you say "come from" do you mean "occur in" or "originate from"? The first is easy to answer; the second, more difficult. (Also, see this answer for a list of sources of doctrine in the LDS faith.)

revised What important Mormon doctrines are taught in the book of Mormon that we couldn't find in the Bible already?
Clarifying that the Bible does mention most of the doctrines, but doesn't expound on some of them

comment Are tithes allowed to be food items in the Mormon church?
@Anonymous Well, anyone gets "free access" to the Mormon church. But how you determine what to tithe is a personal matter. If you have an increase, it should get tithed. It gets complicated quick though if you start enumerating what should and shouldn't be tithed. (Tithing is a higher law than the Law of Moses, which would have enumerated.)

comment Are tithes allowed to be food items in the Mormon church?
@Anonymous Typically, if you're not generating income, you do not owe tithing. Likewise, full-time missionaries do not pay tithing while they are serving.
