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 Is there any reason to think that Mark 7:19 has a later addition?
As someone who is fluent in a language structurally very different from English, this is utterly unconvincing. Just because there are not one-to-one matches for the words does not mean there was an "addition". I can easily compose sentences in Turkish with clauses that cannot be translated into English without adding a considerable number of words to describe the implication of the clause that are clearly not there in the Turkish. Without dealing with the actual Greek grammar and how the words that are there relate to the rest of the text, any accusation of things bing added rings hollow.

comment How best to understand the relationship between Exodus 20:3 and 20:4?
What makes you think the verse number annotations typically found in our Bibles are of any significance to translation/interpretation in the first place? I'm unsure what "evidence" you expect to turn up or on what basis you think a verse marker should or should not be in any particular location.

comment Does God have DNA?/ Sperma?
Now assuming the former would you please edit this to ask a question rather than make a statement about whether that word in that verse is referring to sperm or to something else?

comment Does God have DNA?/ Sperma?
Look man first of all, loose the attitude. I know I'm coming on strong here but this was a mess going down hill fast and I don't have time to beat around the bush. If you want to ask a serious question about the proper interpretation of a word in a verse and get it answered by experts who know what to do with the verse, then lets cut the nonsense and just do that. If you're trying to make a point in spite of what answers you get and plan to argue with everyone that tries to help you get this straightened out then we're just going to shut it down.
