I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

revised Why do OEC discount the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis?
Comments are ephemeral, don't expect them to stick around. Your answer should always be able to stand alone (with just the original question). If something relevant to the original question needs clarifying, make sure you include any relevant context.

revised According to Catholic teaching; how long do we go to Hell for?
A 'christianity' tag does not exist because it is too broad. You would not be able to ask about more that one branch at a time anyway, so lets keep this just to Catholic for now. If you are interested in other branches, please ask about them specifically.
