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 What is the “Leviathan” mentioned in Job?
Likewise, the Creation Museum has quite a bit of information either on their site or the parent organization's site about not only how, but why dinosaurs (which could possibly include dragons) must have existed with men.

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 :)

curious - where does your reasoning that John "knew the high priest well" derive from?
