    TTH: There is infinite variety to all life with DNA, especially rational, thinking sentient life. There is a LOT that is a mystery to you, not just the things you mentioned above.
  3. Hmmmm.... I don't ever remember thumping MY New World Translation. What is "thumping", anyway?

    There is a basic rule I discovered: The more words a person uses to explain a simple idea ... the less likely it is to be true. MANY words are used to hypnotize with boredom ... NOT inform.

    I watched the video you posted in it's entirety, and the narrator said that Bro. Lett was a "simpleton". I was aware of that word, but had never seen it applied to anyone before, so I looked it up. Merriam-Webster defines "simpleton" as a person completely devoid of common sense. (paraphrased). I know several people, completely devoid of any common sense, and have walked that path myself. After I realized I had been a verifiable simpleton, I was deeply ashamed and embarrassed, and resolved to change. ( Eccl: 12:12) I think I was in the 8th grade, when that happened .... I remember the moment as if it was yesterday. Sometimes ... a single word can hit like a grenade, and blow your perceptive world apart. "Simpleton" The piece of the puzzle that explains a LOT. There is a time in everyone's life when he needs to stop thinking like a child, and grow up.

    I was there, and paying attention. I know better.

    Wearing a white lab coat, and with a long wooden pointer with a piece of chalk on the end, JTR points to the chalkboard where it is written "Comedy should be left to the Professionals!"

    Ben Franklin Gets Jilted and Flip-Flopping on the Resurection

    Yeah, my take on it was they would want a NEW rope. Like Hugh Hefner had in Latin, on a brass plaque outside the Chicago Playboy Mansion, above his doorbell: " Si Non Oscillas Noli Tintinnare." ... roughly translated: "If you don't swing .. don't ring." He always had a bunch of sycophants "hanging around".

    Some people would complain if they were hung with an old rope. EVERYBODY is guessing. Get USED to it. It's the only game in town. It's not "old light", or "new light", or any kind of light at all. Everybody is GUESSING ... giving their opinions ... and claiming it is also the opinion of God. (A VERY profitable business not requiring a lot of hard, uncomfortable labor...). Approximately 4 minutes after we stop breathing .... there will be a test.

    Resurrection complications

    If I am resurrected as "me" I hope "me" is REALLY "me". If I wasn't really me .. who else would I be? I could be "me", or "thee", or even a bee. As Winnie the Pooh once said "You never can tell about bees". I might even be a little black rain cloud, ... hovering under the honey tree.

    I think several postings above this one Sreko Sostar did provide standard definitions. The problem with people making their OWN definitions ... is that people make their OWN agenda driven definitions, to fit their distorted world view, and call good, evil ... and call evil, good.

    No ... not really ... petitions to God prayer is trying to influence God.... NOT politicians.

    That is just plain SILLY! It's "Aluminum Foil Hat" silly! That is correct ... and that is Reality, as it exists on the ground ... where the "rubber meets the road". 64 MILLION LETTERS TO TRY AND GET A GOVERNMENT TO CHANGE ITS POLICIES ... IS POLITICAL ACTIVISM. YOU are the one playing with words ... to take what is actually the case, and pretend that it does not apply in THIS case ... and it DOES. The FACTS are either one of two things ... and cannot be a third thing. The past Presidents of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, Russell, Rutherford, and Knoor (whom I have seen in person) did in actual fact swear allegiance to the Constitution of the United States, and swore to defend it, in their heart of hearts, without reservation, or mental evasion .... OR ... to get a Passport, they Swore under Oath before God... and LIED .... lying under oath before man and God to the United States State Department, and each of their Passport applications were fraudulent ... AND they lied SPECIFICALLY before God by their signing that crystal clear and unambiguous oath. There is no third choice, unless you are agenda driven irrational, and borderline (?) insane. MEANWHILE ... the Brothers and Sisters in Malawi were being tortured and killed because Bro. Knoor, who signed an oath of allegiance to the United States Constitution, before God and man, refused, when there was only ONE political party in Malawi at the time, to let them buy a 25 cent National ID card. (foreigners were exempt from that requirement). I lived through those times, when it was all going on, as contemporary news ! I REMEMBER IT !

    Sharp Edges

    Speaking of not running with scissors and sharp edges ..... Both my parents were normal sized people, yet I am almost 6'-7" tall, and almost 300 pounds. I remember when I was about ten years old, was running through the house and tripped while brushing my teeth, and got a toothbrush caught sideways in my throat, and it made the sides of my neck poke out in knobs. PERFECT for attaching car battery jumper cables ....
