You do not know about IP addresses and MAC addresses do you? Everything can be traced back to your computer.
And I would say that you are the one who is scared, which is all I wanted, you are not worth my time complaining about your threat HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

So far you have presented none, no one has presented any. Thus it is safe to assume no evidence exists.

"Jesus said" is much shorter, and since believers believe that the Bible is accurate for the most part (I say that because I do not believe it is devoid of error), it seems redundant to say this.
Feel free to interpret it that way though, I fully understand why. Think of it as adding "in bed" to each fortune in a cookie. We don't mind if you add that phrase on to "Jesus said" in your mind.
"Jesus said in bed?"
No, that doesn't at all help address the idea that nobody remembered the first 30 years of Jesus' teachings or that during approximately 3 years of 24/7 teachings only a few pages of actual text were recorded - or that those few pages of text were accurately put to papyrus in the following decades. I'm going to stick with the observation that more Christians worship a book and the fabrications of church doctrine (ie.. "trinity," "salvation," "lake of fire," and assorted other tripe) than the actual concept of God that Jesus was familiar with.(Not that it is any better.)

There was no translation with this instance.
Brigham did a lot of great things for the church and the country.
I guess you could argue that - except for all intents and purposes, "the church" was his property and "the country" was Deseret, of course.

Every slight bit of credibility you may have built by semi-coherently pointing out how any legal action would be unlikely was just lost by you acting like you know something about the internet. You sound like an 80 year old woman. Stop. Go read a book and find out what IP and MAC are. Both can be spoofed, sure, but you don't even know what they are, so you clearly aren't doing that. You could definitely be found if somebody wanted to find you.

The IP address is the same, but the MAC address is machine specific stupid. Once they get the machine they get finger prints.
And you where so scared you wet your pants.

The most important part of your post was buried in the middle and both of them are likely to miss it.

<quoted text>The bible does say that, I agree. Let say a person has no good works his whole life and on his death bed he repents and accepts Jesus. Will he be accepted by God, according to your understanding?
Totally depends. If he person committed these sins with the intention of repenting at the last minute, then he didn't really repent.
If he had no knowledge of Jesus or that his actions were sins, then he would most likely be forgiven, kinda like Ninevah. God gave them a second chance because they didn't know the things they did were evil. We are judged on our knowledge.

In miracles alone I have given you two occurrences where God helped someone. One in the case of reattaching an ear in less than 36 hours which cannot be explained medically. And another of a person going from cancer stricken to cancer free in less than two weeks. It is extremely unlikely this could happen by itself.

Those who spread the apostasy and heretic teachings need not repent because they have knowledge of Jesus they think is accurate?

Too many references about Him from different sources for me to not believe He lived. But I believe He is the Son of God because I asked in prayer and received an answer from the Holy Ghost. Other than that, I have no proof. Only faith.
There are scant few references to Jesus outside the New Testament. I thin only two or three at the most, and some of those are not accepted by most scholars as being genuine.

Still, I'm not on the bandwagon against historical Jesus. I don't have a strong opinion either way as I don't think either side has a case closed argument. If I was FORCED to pick a side I'd say he was not a real person or that he is based on several different people. But I usually don't make the argument either way.

I can't argue with your faith. I can argue that what you felt was not a ghost, but an emotion. I can argue that the burning sensation in your chest is something a lot of people feel about other religions, or none at all. But I can't argue with faith as faith is not a position of reason, but of subjective emotion.

I said "like" the in bed thing.

You need to remember that most of His followers were poor people. And His apostles gave up everything they had and left to follow Him. They didn't bring belongings. And everything they had, had to be carried around everywhere they went. They rarely rested during His ministry. They didn't take the time to try to write everything at the moment it happened. They spent most of that time trying to figure out what He was doing or what He was going to do next. When He left, they spent the rest of their days telling people what happened. And this was under persecution and constant threat of death.

One example, the railway to the west would have taken decades longer had he not stopped work on the temple to help complete it. You know the picture of the crew with the golden spike? Most of them were Mormon.

Neural networks are a very fascinating study, the biological ones are interesting, but oh so inefficient, considering that our life spans have only recently increased beyond a few decades. The funny thing is how simple the brain actually is, it's not nearly as complex as some people want to believe it is, but it's simplicity is also it's strength, and thus why it's capable of being adaptive. You could actually take a human brain and rewrite the neural network to function exactly like our computers, of course there needs to be a way to keep the brain from degrading on death before that could ever actually happen.
What do you think of the Hard Problem of Consciousness? Can a human brain possibly be "uploaded" to a computer? In other words, can consciousness itself be created?

Is Strong AI possible?

I think that's a super fascinating topic. And I think yes, it is possible. Though I'm not a hardcore believer.
