  1. I am not arguing that there is not "Global Warming". There IS! This is a natural cycle that is determined by orbital mechanics of our Earth, and the various cycles that our VARIABLE STAR, the Sun naturally goes through. On this clear gas planet, Earth, with its predominate Nitrogen atmosphere of "one atmosphere" at sea level , It's all about geometry, and the fact that all radiated energy follows the inverse square law. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING MANKIND CAN DO TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. Nothing mankind can do to cause, or accelerate global warming. ...and nothing we can do to slow or stop it. That's the way Jehovah designed the system.
  2. When all is said and done ... you and Billy ARE my soul brothers, and I would defend you both with my life if necessary. We all take turns being wrong about many, many things, with the firm and profound belief that we are right. It's part of being "big ugly bags of mostly water. ... just add gravel, and Portland Cement. In the big red "Revelation" book, circa 15 or so years ago, it mentioned as an aside that Sir Isaac Newton may have been one of the Anointed. This sparked me reading two very large biographies on his life, and what impressed me the most was the fact that he never published anything without rigorous proof. Rigorous proof means that the facts you use are checkable, and do not contradict known chemistry, physics, and science that makes the REAL world what it is. If it cannot be expressed with HARD NUMBERS, and to "how many decimal places" ... it is NOT science .... it is ONLY opinion. The things wars are fought over. ALL agenda driven thinking, without exception always has been, , is now, and will always be faulty.
  3. Actually, TTH, since you do not know enough even to form an internal opinion, as you yourself admitted, you are particularly unqualified to render an educated opinion on whether I, or JWI is the most informed. All "Global Warming" prognostications are based on say 15 computer models, and information is adjusted, managed, and tweaked to make the models say whatever agrees with the source of funding. JWI was, and is correct in his statement that I know more about the subject than he does ... and more to the point, I can PROVE my conclusions. This would involve charts, graphs, pocket calculators, and lectures on cosmology, orbital mechanics, physics heat transfer, and a dozen other subjects, that most people are never even exposed to .... much less have an understanding and a working knowledge of. You are like a feather, blowing in the wind ... wishing that EVERYBODY was as uninformed, wrong, and wishy-washy as you are. You cannot vote ...... on TRUTH.
  4. The reason I am not "sympathetic" to you Billy, is that if you found someone who knew EVERYTHING about any particular subject ... and you knew NOTHING about that same subject ... you would debate him. Sometimes ... you just need to sit down, shut up ... and listen.
  5. Apparently they did not get the Memo about "tight pants". I really do not know how they get their ankle and foot through those pants legs.
  6. JW USA: A Witness responds to Lloyd Evans about JW and global climate change ..... It's not what Evans sez: It's what DILBERT sez:
  7. ONLY if YOU PERSONALLY have intellectual integrity ... will you follow the TRUTH ... wherever it leads. No human on Earth that lives, or has ever lived, is exempt from this. OTHERWISE ... you are subject to theological hallucinations ... And everything you see, think, and do will be duplicitous ... and as you stated above ... The fact that looking straight at it .... AT IT ... you declare you do not know .... perfectly illustrates my point.
  8. Billy: I agree with all you said above ... BUT... We should all be united in what is true, what is honorable, what is fair, what is equitable, what is righteous, what is good, and what is wholesome. BEING UNITED just to have peace involves a THOUSAND compromises ... and is a slippery slope that slides to error, intellectually dishonesty, self delusion, theocratic hallucinations, the abandonment of JUSTICE, and dishonors both ourselves ... which intellectual integrity is where someone always has to start ... AND the Brotherhood ... and most importantly, Jehovah God. It all starts ... here on the dirt, where the rubber meets the road ... is the determination, without compromise ... to achieve intellectual integrity . FIRST You cannot have TRUTH ... without intellectual integrity. OTHERWISE ... we may be the finest "Brother Watchtower" that walks the Earth ... but we will be intellectually dishonest ... like a plague, that takes a 30 year incubation period for the consequences to show up. You cannot have TRUTH ... without intellectual integrity.
  9. Each one has to obey the dictates of his own individual conscience .... that is what makes us, US ... and not merely, only, and very, very sadly ..... just animals. NOTHING MORE
  10. From my perspective, ... Intellectual Integrity, or the lack thereof ... is what this ENTIRE thread is actually about. We have Liberty, and Freedom, and opportunity as Jehovah's Witnesses ... unmatched in the history of civilization. It breaks my heart to see us turn ourselves into a nation of delusional fools.
  11. Billy ... you are asking the WRONG QUESTION. You should not be asking how did the photographer got so close to the building ... he walked through the gate. The video does show him walking around inside the perimeter fence. The question should be, how did he get past the heavy steel bars on the WINDOWS to put the flag BEHIND the metal bars and glass. I have a Canon SX60 Camera that I can zoom in and take pictures of the SIDES of the mountains on the Moon, as they curve around the other side of the Moon. I could take a picture of a small bug on that window from the center of the street, through the fence. It's NOT what can you possibly imagine .... It is about what a non-agenda driven person, a reasonable and rational person ... a person who is not suffering from WDS delusions would consider MOST probable. We all bet our lives on how we interpret facts .... and the bill, either has to be paid mentally, emotionally, intellectually, or with blood and gore. The REAL Universe does not indulge our delusions. Intellectual INTEGRITY has to come FIRST. ... or nothing else REAL can we see.
  12. WDS - (Watchtower Derangement Syndrome) - The double edged sword that cuts BOTH ways. Agenda driven fantasy rationality from the "outside, looking in.", or from the "inside looking out". The sword cuts BOTH ways.
  13. Define "hoopla". If I take your bet, for, say $200.00, what unambiguous specific criteria is necessary for one side or the other to prevail? This can be either (EITHER!) gambling, or a sound investment strategy Otherwise, while placing bets, or making an investment ...... pistols on the table.
  14. I’m not saying some of the pictures aren’t true, James. Because they are. I have more credible evidence on video. The point I’m trying to make, the length opposers will go when they see an irregularity within the organization. For one, the Country of Chile is not entirely democratic. There is communism that still stands in Chile. Opposers argue the brothers did it as not to pay a fine. Was that what really what happened? There are 3 Kingdom Halls in question. Were those kingdom halls in control of an opposition party that forced the brothers to comply? For all we know, there could have been a group of patriots with threats of bodily harm in the name of the government to make someone comply. How many times don’t we see exactly that on the news? That would lead me to believe, more in the weakness of a group of Elders, but I wasn't there. In the case of the Spanish letterheads and English wording. If that indeed was submitted by the Branch office, did some Elders misunderstand or comprehend the letter? Or were those Spanish BOE letters translated into English by opposers, then posted that way. There are 1 or 2 photos that are photoshopped. They didn’t have to be, but that’s the length some opposers like Lloyd Evans will go to distort an issue. Therefore, can we say, it’s 100% factual under those circumstances? This issue started in 2014. In 2016-2017 the flags were displayed on 3 Kingdom Halls. Was it voluntarily, by choice, or forced. Does anyone have concrete evidence the Elders willfully complied to meet the demands of the State, or do we know if any Elders were removed for not understanding the Watchtower guidelines? According to the latest pictures, those KH in question seems to be clear of any State-sponsored propaganda. That’s the point of probability. There are too many unknowns to make a claim of absolute. Of course, 98.8% is an exaggeration James. That doesn’t mean that a lot of things floating out on the internet is NOT fake. I believe Anna and JWinsider just proved that point with the pole shadows. Did opposers need to muddy the waters even further by that exposure? NO! Therefore, until someone comes up with something more tangible, the reasons why still remain with those Chilean brothers, not the Watchtower. I am quoting your ENTIRE last post, , as I don't want it to be edited or "disappear".. I know for a certainty that you are agenda driven ... NOT TRUTH DRIVEN ... as you have just proved with your considered, but off-point, rambling, reply ... assuming vague possibilities for which there is NO credible evidence .... or any evidence at ALL. Your entire thought processes are governed by wishful thinking, and agenda driven fantasy constructs. After your forced admission of " Of course, 98.8% is an exaggeration James". , and " I’m not saying some of the pictures aren’t true, James. Because they are. I have more credible evidence on video." That says it all ..... in your own words.
