I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment Did Jesus die on the cross or on the tree?
given that wood comes from a tree, and a cross is wooden, I'm not seeing the issue

comment Is Jesus using a rhetorical device when he says “turn the other cheek”?
@2pietjuh2 - I was more under the impression that BH.SE was the better place for application when interpretation is also needed .. but I haven't been over there recently :)

comment Does Cain still have descendants on the earth?
those apocryphal texts are surely interesting reading ... but the conclusion that only a few Sethian descendants existed because "unlike the descendants of Seth, they were very active sexually and reproduced rapidly" seems tenuous

comment Jonah and the Whale - Is there any scientific proof that it is possible to survive in the belly of whale?
to second @MasonWheeler's point, while many were raised from the dead before Christ's resurrection (he raised several Himself during His ministry), they all died again :)

I think this is a good quesiton, though it might be better answered on Hermeneutics :)

comment Why did the slave girl at the gate stop Peter but not John?
curious - where does your reasoning that John "knew the high priest well" derive from?

comment What is the relationship between God the Father and the Holy Spirit?

comment Why didn't the Jews understand “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani”?
@Rick - perhaps; we do know there were many non-Romans in the close vicinity of the crucifixion, though. I was under the [maybe mistaken] impression that friends and family of the condemned were able to "intervene" in a comforting manner (eg via supplying a drink) to the dying (just like the hangers-on in British hangings years back).

comment Was the marriage between Abraham and Sarah incestuous?
regardless of the frequency of marrying a sibling, lying to save his own life was the problem :)

comment Is rape condoned in the Bible? If so, why?
the Bill of Rights has nothing to do with animals - no idea how that made it into the question!

comment Why didn't the Jews understand “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani”?
@konwayk - there were Jews from all over the Roman Empire present at the time of the Crucifixion, as they were still there on the Day of Pentecost, as recorded in Acts 2 :)

How do we know that the one who "took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar" was a Roman soldier?

comment What does the Bible say about a father walking his daughter down the aisle at her wedding?
agreed. Just wondering if part of the tradition can be traced there :)

comment What does the Bible teach about domestic discipline?
Matthew 24:49, I do not believe, can be used to say this is categorically a "sin"
