I have been programming since I was in high school, and my favorite computer was my Amiga 2000, as that is what I learned to program in C on, and was just a great computer.

I have been an advocate about unit testing since 1999, and believe we can get better code by getting before the user more frequently so we can narrow the solution to what they really want, as users don't really know what they want, initially.

I am comfortable with many languages, but am trying to understand how to program in functional languages, giving up while loops is very difficult for me in designing applications. :)

I am living in Knoxville, TN.

comment Praying to people outside the Trinity
@brilliant - If someone is in a place where you cannot talk to them easily, such as the gulf between us and those that have passed on, then we use the term prayer for how we talk to them. When I was younger I would just carry on conversations with Jesus as a friend, people would call that prayer, I just called it talking with a dear friend. It is semantics.

comment Could there have been a pragmatic purpose for the OT legal dietary restrictions?
@audio.zoom - A law doesn't have to be logical to be made, as I mentioned, if your goal is to have a group stand out from others, then having a different ritual or law would help achieve this, which can make sense if God's desire is to help them understand that they will be different than non-believers, and some specific rituals will help unite them as a group.

comment Could there have been a pragmatic purpose for the OT legal dietary restrictions?
@audio.zoom - My point is that there is no scientific reason. We can guess what it may be, but that involves cherry picking from Leviticus in order to justify the position, and that is always a dangerous step.

comment Is Christianity the sum of the actions and beliefs of its adherents or a set of actions and beliefs defined by the Bible?
@PeterTurner - Thank you, I couldn't remember if there was an e at the end of Sheen's name, so I went with it. :)

comment What evidence do we have today about Christian groups not represented at the first four ecumenical councils?
So before 400AD it would be difficult to know the various groups, to state whether one wasn't represented; but I would guess there were by your very broad definition.

What would you consider to be a Christian group? Do you mean was every church represented?

comment Is God capable of ever doing wrong?
I am curious how you define doing wrong. Is this similar to the argument about whether there is a rock so heavy that God can't move it? If so then closing the question makes sense.

comment Are the images we draw of Jesus correct?
@Richard - It is unlikely Jesus is/was that white, IMO.

comment What is the theological background of the WWJD movement?
@dancek - You may want to read this article: christianitytoday.com/ct/2002/july8/26.58.html. I found it interesting, not certain how to answer your question pulling some ideas from this article. I am also torn by how much we should be like Christ as Christians, but, that would be a separate question.
