  1. Attitude Makes a Difference! 💗🎻💗🎻💗

    The Russian Federation has 80 MILLION Letters ... and I have an attitude! In order to transform that negativity into something positive, just THINK of how valuable all that processed wood fiber will be this coming winter, in Russia, where they still have pot-bellied wood burning heaters!
  2. Early Hebrews Believed in Leviathan

    It STILL sounds like Dragons, to me! ...by the way .... you know, of course, that the books of the Bible were compiled by CATHOLICS, primarily Esubius of Cesarea, and others .... ...perhaps they "forgot" to include the book of Enoch, (?) because they had no idea how to explain it to the unwashed masses. ...perhaps that's why we don't consider it part of the Bible, today. (?)
  3. The Book of Enoch

    Using simple reason and common sense it seems to me that what happened to Enoch was quite simple. Years ago I went to work for Dallas Area Rapid Transit, (DART) in Dallas, Texas, and my former job and stuff was in Greenville South Carolina. A moving company came and TRANSFERRED all my stuff to Dallas, Texas. I, nor my stuff went to heaven, and I did not die, and if you looked for me in Greenville, I was nowhere to be found. Using that as a typical example, I believe that satisfies ALL the scriptural "requirements", and does not require any mental gymnastics or Twilight Zone suppositions. Jehovah God relocated Enoch by transferring him to another unspecified location. He might even have been a great ancestor of Mick Dundee, of Walkabout Creek, Australia. AND... it uses the word "transferred" exactly correctly. This is what I personally believe, by the way, for the reasons stated.
  4. Watchtower pays $4000 per day for disobeying Secular Authority

    Are Jehovah's Witnesses a part of the community? As the ARC pointed out .... matters not reported to the police as a matter of NATURAL CONSCIENCE ... puts the community as a whole at risk .... not JUST Jehovah's Witnesses.
  5. There is nothing anyone can do for you, TTH, when you determinedly misconstrue what is being said, and cannot visualize what MUST be the case, when people don't use puppets and crayons to explain things to you. I felt sorry for a man who had no shoes ... until I met a man who had no feet. I felt sorry for a man who could not read ... until I met a man who WOULD NOT READ. .
  6. It is clear, TTH that your understanding of statistics is that it has something to do with numbers, and not Lego blocks in the hallway at night, as you have completely misconstrued what I stated ..... as usual. It seems clear to me, now that the absurd extrapolations you make are the lenses you read through., and that to misunderstand EVERYTHING means you have a learning disability of some sort, predominately a lack of reading comprehension. As a last resort, follow the link I posted ... perhaps you just go insane when you read anything that Ah has written. I have that effect on many people.
    • Hello guest!
    This study shows that JWs have about a THIRD of the mental illness rate of the general population, and I would suspect that that would equate to about a THIRD of the suicides of the general population. Just a guess ... NO MORE. I am of the very considered opinion that just in the case of King Saul, Sampson, and Jesus ... by willingly walking into a known death trap ... that these suicides are NOT counted as self murder by Jehovah God., any more that soldiers who willingly volunteer for "suicide missions" for some greater good would be considered to have murdered themselves. Consumed with grief and a broken heart and many tears, I have had to execute by proxy many of my dogs over the years, and lament when "my time comes" .... and it will ... that there will be no one to show me that kindness.
  7. Too Short To Give A Talk? – See What Melvin Did!

    He cried out with tears of joy "Da Plane Boss...da PLANE!"
  8. Even in more developed countries, there are unforeseen problems at conventions, and in the door-to door work.. Sometimes the Land Sharks will leave the flooded roads and fields, and go to apartments and homes.
  9. As soon as they adopt the vital 15% core Truths that to the best of my knowledge, only Jehovah's Witnesses have. At one time in history only one natural man knew the core theology as we do, and that was Sir Isaac Newton, but his writings were not made known until after his death, as the Trinitarians would have excoriated him.
  10. What's wrong with THIS?

    Today is November 18, 2017. In about five days or so many in the United States will celebrate a National Day of Thanksgiving, and many of Jehovah's Witnesses will not. WHY? Below is the complete text of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving day proclamation. Please read it carefully, and tell me ... What's wrong with THIS? ...................................................................................... Washington, D.C. October 3, 1863 By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation. The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth. By the President: Abraham Lincoln William H. Seward, Secretary of State ....................................................... I cannot find anything wrong with this ... nothing at all. Do you see something that a sane, rational person should be seeing that I do NOT see? .
