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 did Christians kill other Christians during World War One?
"Rebut this false statement" is not a good constructive question format for this site. Basically the answer to this comes down to "why are non-JW's not JW's", which is simply too broad and varied to ask here. Maybe there is something more specific you'd like to know about the beliefs and practices of a specific group, but "all non-JW's" is not specific.

comment Why should we pray if God knows everything?
You can think God is in a hospital if you like, but I've never heard of any Christian group that agrees with you. As written this is simply not representative of Christianity's views on this subject.

comment How did `git pull` eat my homework?
@Gilles The project was imported from subversion so it has some git-svn stuff in history but that was a one shot deal and svn is no longer involved. I was pulling from a native git repo (gitlab over ssh). No, there is no .git file upstream or anywhere in history.

A) Use a Bible in a language you speak and B) use a dictionary. Either or both of those things would save you from this sort of misunderstanding.
