  1. Yesterday
  2. Good day! Do you know where I can obtain notebook for kids, for the “Love Jehovah with all your heart” Deut. 13:3. Thanks. Have four grandkids going for first time aged 7 to 14. Thanks. 🌹
  3. Are this words, your respond on my comment, or is this your respond to someone else comment? :))) Very confusing. What does Concept of Private Property in Jew Culture and in Culture of Nations of that period of time, have with "Authority" of our time period? Term "Secular authority" coming from NT period. Do you point on such "authority"? What "authority" do you have in mind? Christian congregation "authority"? Or secular "authority"? Or ...Patriarhhical sort of "authority", etc? This last sort of "authority" in patriarchal societies of old time, with strong echoes in our time too, consider female humans as "private property". Mosaic Law gave instructions in case of rape of female who are not promised, who are promised or rape of woman who is married. In all cases, we see how in Biblical times, a sexual assault against another man's daughter, wife, or betrothed could only be a theft of that man's sexual property, rather than an offense against the woman herself. Deuteronomy 22:28-29, saying that the punishments for rape have to do not with compassion or trauma to the woman herself but with honor, tribal purity, and a sense that a used woman is damaged goods. Male and female persons in the past was not equal. Their dignity and value are not in same level despite fact how both of them was made in God's Image. Perhaps Mosaic Law was "perfect" for those Cultures and Time Period. And as such gave to female persons "the best" in such circumstances. What details of such old views on "women" are still living today in WT Society and JW organization? Not all "authority" is good authority! Maybe, we should ask: Why we haven't better "authority"?
  4. What I said was that no one here was a typical witness
  5. That is all TTH ever does is lie. I am sick of it. He is a disgusting despicable offal-like creature masquerading as a human bean. Yes, “bean” is not a mistake. It is deliberate. I cannot bring myself to call him a human being, he is that repulsive. He reeks with B.O and bad breath. And gas? Tell me about it. Even those of other species know it. Recently I happened upon him walking his pet pig. “Hey, where did you get the pig?” I greeted him. ”I found him at the marketplace,” the pig replied.
  6. I don’t believe anyone has said JWinsider wrote those books and that your grammar is lousy, even though your gang seems to "harp" on it, including you as I recall with a few people here, that's rich so let’s get off that deception and not change the subject. I believe the point is, your weak assertion that a witness not in good standing gave you input and you lied about it. Now you seem to imply you regret not listening to a person that goes against the bible principle and has unchristian conduct to say the least as his strength. I think that’s where “birds of a feather flock together” surmises. I don’t know who’s worse when it comes to deception. But then again, writers do have to stick together, especially ones that are not important and corrupt just like one from the other post. You are also correct when you state none of you here are true witnesses. If I didn’t know better, “Anna” quoted from a former member of the LDS in her remarks. I wonder if Anna and JWinsider are LDS disguising themselves as witnesses. Speculation, maybe far-fetched, maybe not. That certainly would answer a lot of questions, wouldn’t it? If I recall, JWinsider once said he couldn’t get enough of Ellen G. White quotes here.
  7. @JW Insider did not write TrueTom v Apostates. He did not write Dear Mr. Putin. I wrote them. There were portions that I forwarded to him for comment. To that extent, he had input. His comments were most helpful and every time I ignored them I came to regret it. I got all excited about a statistical factoid from the follow-up Aussie case study. He told me it wasn’t so watertight as I had imagined. He was right and I downgraded it to a suggestive pointer. He said that there were a ton of errors—typos and punctuation atrocities—in the manuscript and I was later aghast at how abundant they were. It took me forever to get them out. Even now there are probably a few—but it is time for new things. Even his instinct about my describing the old bound volumes as the family gods—bulky, toted everywhere, and very seldom used—I came to agree with. I was just being self-indulgent, and no one had ever described them that way but me. Why put anyone off unnecessarily? His biggest contribution was when I ran by him beforehand the letter that I submitted to the Philly Inquirer in response to their first of what proved to be four incendiary articles. This was a big moment for me. The topic was white-hot, I had never seen anyone not run from it, and I didn’t want to mess it up. For all I knew, they might print it. I respected his insights and incorporated most of them. That letter became the core of what ultimately became a chapter in TrueTom vs the Apostates, “Four Incendiary Articles.”
      Hello guest!
    So yes, he has good judgement and instincts about what I consulted him for. Yes, his advice proved valuable. Yes, I am grateful to him for it. No, he did not write any of either book. Our cooperative role may expand. We came across The Librarian, that old biddy, bending over dusting Gibbon’s “Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire” on a lower shelf in her library. JWI and I toppled the entire bookshelf on her and squashed her flat. You should not expect to hear from her anymore except for some automated posts she may have previously submitted. I planted a story that a California law was going to kill the internet. Admin fell for it, and he sold the entire forum to me for only a dollar. JWI agreed to come in for just 50 cents. If I let him do his thing, going on and on and on about some egghead things that I don’t really care about—and after all, he did help me with the bookshelf—I will gain his good will forever. Yes, it is chronology he is into. But he writes at such length that everyone falls asleep except for other eggheads. He has done the research to expound on what he does, as others have done the research to disagree with him, even the semi-resident titan who doesn’t wish to be described that way. I gather that our view is not the one that predominates in the mainstream scholarly world, but this does not unduly concern me. I am too used to headlines that read: “Everything you thought you knew about such-and-such is wrong.” Matters of scientific scholarship can and have turned on a dime. Besides, even if his most drastic thought proved true, it would amount to no more that a (colossal) misread of the bus schedule. It would not mean that the bus is not coming.
  8. Ah! How sweet, TTH cares. They pretend to despise one another, but from author to novelist, the bond is greater between writers, that’s lovable. However, was JTR already married? The Oscar goes to!
  9. Non-Sequiter: We are now in the 4th day of mechanically incubating 7 miniature chicken, chicken eggs. Soon we will be surrogate grandparents of midget chickens .. Only 17 more days to go.
  10. I believe you have ALREADY overdosed on the blue pills, LONG before I knew of your existence. Wikipedia notes: "The red pill, together with its opposite, the blue pill, is a popular cultural meme, a metaphor representing a choice between the "red pill", representing a life of harsh knowledge, desperate freedom, and the brutal truths of reality, and the "blue pill", representing a life of luxurious security, tranquil happiness, and the blissful ignorance of the harsh realities of life, basking in an (essentially dishonest) illusion. The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, are directly derived from a scene in the 1999 film The Matrix."
  11. I can't remember JTR, which one did you give me? The (RED PILL) or the (BLUE PILL). Which one works in your fantasy world the best?
  12. Gold and Coca-Cola.... you just can't beat the "real thing". No substitutes. I know... this makes me "old school"
  13. Hmm! What you are saying, you would excuse your behavior just like a pedophile. Well! Well! How many 6.6 white males with your name on it are there in this world, expect of course senior. Maybe the 4th. Oh! No, wait a minute, that’s you too. I didn't want to embarrass you more by saying you would actually be 53 years old, while The Ukrainian sister would be 13 years old, at 66. A 34 year difference. 😎 If I was you, I would deny! Deny! Deny! Being a bully, advocate and all. That doesn’t make it any less factual. 😁 No! No! No! Computer hacking attempts! TTH, JWinsider 😉
  14. 16 ...uh... I mean 61 ! I am 73 ...and she has a Masters in Mathematical Education, and I have a High School diploma written in crayon. I like a woman who knows Calculus ... it's someone I can ... *coff* ... count on.
