The scientific method can't prove everything.
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Okay, okay... I do understand that there is a ton of good that has been brought about by the scientific method, but seriously, people; is that the *only* way to prove something is true? Wow. In my opinion, we've really limited ourselves if we think that's the only way to "prove" the truth of something. I just (finally) finished D&C 76, an...

Judgmental Paradox

I'm not even sure if that's spelled right. Ohwell.. Two things: I love the smell of new leather. I went into my car to get my laptop to blog, and the smell of new Mustang GT leather came to greet me. I love it. I don't appreciate enough the fact that my wife is so emotionally stable. She really is. Serious. Whenever I see someone who...

Contention Sucks.

This morning, Steve broke in to chat and said something to the effect of "Pride sucks." Ya know... I completely agree with him. Pride does suck. I wonder why... I've heard it said that "Pride is the only unforgivable sin." This is the doctrine according to me because I can't remember who said it, nor if it was an authority figure, so.... no ...

My Mustang GT has gas. (85 octane, that is)
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Since I purchased my 2007 Mustang GT in January of 2007, I've been putting 85 Octane gas in it. I didn't notice any pings, nor anything else to make me think I was putting the wrong gas in it. Well, my dad was in it two days ago and asked me what gas I was using. When I told him, he couldn't believe I would do such a thing. Well.... In my defe...

Mormon Myths....
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
I almost didn't post anything tonight..... But... I've gotta. One thing which seems to irritate me quite a bit is this phenomenon among people of my faith which drives them to make some pseudo-philosophical yet some how not quite doctrinally correct quote and then follow it by "I'm sure it's in the scriptures. I just read it. I swear. " or, "I'...

To become a son of perdition
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Lately, I've been studying the D&C, and I came upon section 76, which isn't anything new to me, personally. I studied that section quite a bit during my mission. However, this time the coincidence of my reading this days after one of my co-workers came over and asked me"Are there any sins that Christ's atonement don't cover?" Worded that way...

Do Mormons Worship Christ?
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
To start things off, I’ve been doing a bit of research on Christianity due to a friend I have at my place of employment. In my research I came upon the wonderful debate on whether or not members of the LDS church are “Christians”. The arguments pointed out were surprisingly well-worded and easy to understand. One of the main on...

Necessity of Church Membership
PoeticIntensity

An interesting question came to me today, while talking to a good friend at work. The question is simple. It’s based on the premise of two distinct beliefs. 1. LDS faith teaches us that unless the proper ordinances have been performed by those who are in authority to perform such ordinances, one cannot enter into the kingdom of heav...

Jacob : 6
PoeticIntensity

The first thing which caught my eye in this chapter is in verse 5 where it says "Cleave unto God as he cleaveth unto you." When I read that, the first thing which came to mind was D&C 88:63, which states, "Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you." I also think this is one of the first times, if not the first time...

Recently I was reading from scriptures.lds.org and decided it could be improved to make it easier to read. Here is what it looks like normally. A couple things bugged me. Narrow text is generally easier to read. So, I made it more narrow. Also, the superscript letters that signify a footnote throw off the line spacing. I figured out a cool l...

Something I thought I'd write down, because it took me forever to figure out, has been a bug for at least a year, and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. The bug is quite simple really, and once you know where to look for it, it pretty much stops being a bug due to an extremely easy work-around. The bug is concerning network cards plugg...

Ya know...  One thing which really irks me is when someone tells me "I can't", for whatever reason. I'm not exactly sure, either, since there really are things which we cannot do, such as transmutate ourselves to become vultures.  I don't believe I've ever met a person who has become a vulture, although, that would mean that he...

But then we each got married, he moved to Missouri, and that was that...    ...until two days ago. ...

Alma : 33
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Hmm...  I really like when prophets, like Alma, quote other prophets to make a point.  The best way to keep the doctrine pure is to look the reference up.  Otherwise, it inevitably will be diluted down.  Ain't no doctrine like pure doctrine. Interesting that the quote from Zenos in verses 4-11 is paraphrased beautifully in Alm...

The first thing I noticed this time reading this was that even though the Nephites under Zeniff were at a time of peace, after the war, Zeniff was diligent in continuing his building of weaponry.  Not sure why that struck me this time, but the very first verse jumped out. Maybe it's because they didn't make any assumptions about their enemy....

So, I am assuming that this whole site is one cool PHP project. Good job, Jason. Looking forward to the 'remake' of ldscompanion.org to see what happens there. That's a cool site, too.  It isn't any wonder to me why someone would want to hire you. You'll have the Zend framework down in no time. MVC and OOP are just a different way of planning ...
