Carpenter and Contractor delving into web development as a serious hobby.

I love building things with my hands, but I also love the mental challenge of programming. I am mostly interested in online web design & development using HTML/CSS with javascript/jQuery and PHP and really trying to master these things.

I would be interested in studying Python or Ruby on Rails but since web development is a hobby I don't have the time to really consider either.

comment Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God?
@Gulshan yes, I see the claim a lot. I watch arabic television quite often and especially in Egypt there are often "debates" between Christians and Muslims.

The problem I see with claiming you have an original (that would also have to be completely contrary to all existing manuscripts) is that if you could prove millions of people wrong and win them to your side with a book in your possession, why wouldn't you make it available?

comment Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God?
There is a reason that the New Testament and Old Testament are published together in the same book, they do work together quite well and the Old testament is referenced throughout the New Testament. Muslims claim that they believe in the same books as we do but you can clearly see by reading both that they are in complete contradiction to one another. The muslims counter this by claiming that our versions have been altered (literally impossible by the way the manuscripts were originally distributed), and that they have the one original somewhere.

comment Can I believe in evolution and still be a Christian?
The bible is a work of literature that speaks absolute truth. However, it is also literature that uses metaphors, similes, parables, and hyperbole. It should be generally understandable by context how the verse you are reading is to be interpreted.

You can believe it and still be a Christian. Should you? I don't believe so. The bible is clear that like begets like. Evidence for evolution is mainly weak speculation and there is a lot of shady stuff going on (like claims to "missing links" that always turn out to not be missing links).

comment Do angels have free will?
If angels didn't have free will, why would 1/3 of the angels be cast out of heaven. Because they chose to follow satan, no?

comment Why do Jews not accept Jesus as the Messiah?
"And Jesus didn't say a word to clarify that it's just a symbol, he just let his disciples go if they couldn't accept that they must eat his flesh and drink his blood." It is obviously a symbol. He has the bread and wine in his hands when he says it. The bread in his hands is obviously not really his body...

comment Why do Jews not accept Jesus as the Messiah?
"You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit." off-topic but this quote from Stephen just jumped out, I wonder if this can be an argument against "irresistable grace"?
