Hi I'm Nicholas

I'm a Husband, I'm a Mechanical Engineer, I'm a Libertarian, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After obtaining a degree in Mathematics, I obtained a job programming mechanical engineering tools, which I now use as an engineer. When not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife, typically hiking or watching reality TV shows. In my spare time I enjoy video games and trying to solve the Hard Problem of Consciousness.

Why I am a Mormon

Despite my mom's best efforts I grew up as an ardent atheist. Reason is king therefore the universe is made of molecules, atoms and governed only by physical law. God was but a Santa Claus for Adults. However questions like what was the first causality and how does physical material give rise to sensation slowly made me a skeptic to atheism and led me to be a true free thinker. Ultimately I had to admit that we most likely have a creator and I began to developed a relationship with Jesus Christ and build faith in him as my personal savior. However what I was taught about our Heavenly Father was not always completely satisfying, either spiritually or intellectually. When the LDS missionaries knocked on my door, I humored them, curious to see if they might have any pearls of truth or wisdom to share. I was shocked to find what they taught was both spiritually and intellectually satisfying, and ultimately I gained my own testimony that what they taught me is true.

How I live my faith

Micah 6:8 "To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God". Currently I live my faith by putting family first, and serving our ward as Cub Master.

Are Mormons Christians?

I believe a Christian is someone who humbly strives to follow the example of Jesus Christ. After receiving a witness to the truth of the Book of Mormon and the LDS Church, I could not continue to follow Jesus without becoming a Mormon. Show more Show less
