I am interested in functional programming and the java platform.

I wrote and published a programming language named "Frege" (after the great german logician) that brings together both worlds.

The language is in many respects like haskell (syntax, type system, lazy semantics) but allows to use java methods as functions.

For more information see https://github.com/Frege/frege

comment On what basis do some denominations prohibit Christians from drinking alcohol?
+1 for the neutral presentation. Still, I want to add that the "it has ruined some peoples lives" argument is not convincing. The same can be said of almost every activity: business, sports, eating hamburgers (to name a few).

comment Is it true that Martin Luther was calling for killing Hebrew people?
It must be pointed out that a) antisemitism was by no means a fault of Germans only b) the ursury attributed to Jews resulted not the least from them being forbidden to work in normal professions much earlier than Luther. Because they were not Christians, the rulers thought it is okay not to bind them to this religious rule, which was to be obeyed by Christians. The Jews, OTOH, are only forbidden to extract interest from other jews by their own rules. So, this worked out fine until the stupid middle age people realized that ursury may actually make people rich, and this created envy and hatred

comment What does the Bible say about ones wishes concerning their body after they have died?
@fredsbend Also, one could generously grant the dead the right to say what they want without having to fear any conflicts arising of that.

comment How much are we personally responsible for the salvation of someone else?
@vsz I did not speak at all about "good" or "bad" nations or denominations. Anyway, as it annoyed you, I removed my comment and will remove this one too later.

comment What is the biblical basis for the prohibition of instruments in worship?
The "silence" argument is very weak and cannot be accepted. Note that the Bible contains only so many sentences, hence it necessarily must be silent about infinitely many questions. Consider: is it allowes to have 4 chairs in the worhipping room? 5? 6? 7? ... and so forth. But, does anybody believe in ernest that GOD looks at formalities rather than in the heart of his believers?

Guess why? You have to have an excuse, you know, just when someone is asking where those plates are.

comment Is there a Biblical basis for believing someone can be saved after dying and going to Hell?
Shouldn't you first provide biblical evidence for the existence of a "hell", where dead people go?

comment Who were the the “Prophets of Zwickau”?
Note that communism and socialism are totally incompatible with anarchism, which is lack of reign, while communism and socialism pre-suppose an almost almighty government that has the power to force people to behave to their silly rules.

comment Is masturbation a sin?
@mojo - Why should it be a sin? Who is hurt by it? Why is it that the body of a young person is to a great extent dominated by sexual desire? The answer is obvious. No, it's not the devil. Youth is just the biological best time to breed offspring. That's all, and if you believe that GOD created man, then it is ridiculous to maintain at the same time that one of the most pwoerful instincts is not also implanted by GOD.
