I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment Why are angelic icons not prominent in Judaism?
Um, having a hard time seeing what this has to do with anything. Could you expound? Are you saying Jews can't draw as well? Seriously I'm sure I must be missing the point, but there is precious little to go on in this answer. Please consider editing in some explanation!

[citation needed]! All the evidence I know of points to the contrary.

comment Difference between Torah and the first five books in Christian bible
@MonicaCellio: There are many different "Christian" translations of the Torah in English, and most of them did not pass through Greek or Latin on the way. Some did use the Greek LXX or Latin Vulgate as a reference or sounding board because of their historical perspective on translating the original Hebrew, but basically all modern respected translations are based on Hebrew scholarship.

comment Reconciling the evidence for the Uncertainty Principle with belief in an omniscient G-d
@antony.trupe: A duplicate would have the same answers, and a cross-post is only bad if its trying to play two different communities to get the same answer faster/better. In this case that one word change makes all the difference, the OP is looking for the perspectives of two different belief systems. Also the post was re-opened after some word fixes on Christianity.SE.

comment Reconciling the evidence for the Uncertainty Principle with belief in an omniscient G-d
@AdamRedwine: It's been re-opened on Christianity.SE. I think that might have been a mis-understanding, we just needed to resolve some wording.
