I am a student at Utah State University where I study Computer Science with a Digital Systems emphasis. My interests include Computer Architecture and Hardware, Digital Design, Systems Programming, Microcontroller Development, UNIX and Linux, Concurrent and Parallel Programming, Operating System hardware and software design. My preferred programming language for most tasks is C, followed by Python. I am president of the Free Software and Linux Club at USU.

Having grown up in Mormon culture and as a member of the LDS church, I contribute to christianity.stackexchange.com in these areas.

comment What is the basis of the LDS teaching that the angel Michael became Adam?
I would also like to point out that in LDS theology, all angels are the same status as either spirit children of God awaiting a mortal existence, spirits awaiting a resurrected body, or resurrected beings. An example of this is the Angel Gabriel being the prophet Noah in the old testament awaiting the resurrection, according to LDS theology.

comment What actions does the LDS church (Mormon) take when a member does not pay tithing?
@Matt I know people who pay a guestimate once a year before their income is fully tallied.

answered Does LDS teaching hold to a multi-universe theory or an infinite universe theory in order to account for the doctrine of eternal progression?

comment Does the Mormon doctrine of exaltation implicitly require acknowledging the existence of sentient extra-terrestrial life?
@DaveDeLong You're right it's not explicit. The problem is our abuse of the meaning of the word "universe." I edited this to appear less authoritative.

Good Question. In my experience this aspect of Mormonism is what causes so many evangelicals to classify it as nonchristian.

comment Does God have the capacity to sin? Can God sin?
This is precisely correct. This is also why Jesus could not have sinned because of his nature, yet he certainly had the capacity to sin and that's what made the temptation real.
