Thought for the day: Judge Not

Matthew 7:1, "Judge not, that ye be not judged," means, "You can't solve the Halting Problem," but moreso. Humans are more complicated than Turing Machines, and the end state is harder to predict.


P.S. Of course, someday you *will* be able to solve the Halting Problem. (Again, it's because humans are more complicated than Turing Machines, so the proof of intractability of the Halting Problem doesn't hold. That proof only shows that you can't solve it with a finite-state Turing Machine.)

-- "The presentation or 'gift' of the Holy Ghost simply confers upon a man the right to receive at any time, when he is worthy of it and desires it, the power and light of truth of the Holy Ghost, although he may often be left to his own spirit and judgment." --Joseph F. Smith (manual, p. 69)

"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
