Paraphrasing...


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Do not follow most programmers in writing bad code.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Exodus 23:2


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Do not make an ideology for yourself. You must not bow down to them or serve them.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Exodus 20:4-5


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
You must not mix two different coding conventions, create programming languages with two programming paradigms, or write code made of two styles.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Leviticus 19:19


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
You must purge the bad (programmers and code) from you.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Deuteronomy many places


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Woe to those who call bad code good
and good code bad,
who substitute complexity for simplicity,
who substitute compactness for readability.
Woe to those who are wise in their own opinion
and clever in their own sight.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Isaiah 5:20-21


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hate bad code and love good code;
and establish judgement in the project.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Amos 5:15


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Though I walk through the Silicon Valley of darkness, I will fear no evil.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Psalm 23:4

Nice.

By the way, is the Programmable Gods game idea is still on?

As a programmer, I would like to contribute to this project.

I am not going to do the Programmable Gods idea.  You are certainly welcome to try it.

My project is just developing tolerable programming tools for my own use.  This is here:
