in this recent episode of the atheist experience "john from london" calls in to the show to give his arguments for god's existence.
matt and tracie use logic to point out the flaws in his arguments - very weak arguments!.
near the end of the conversation, john starts talking about the un turning on religion.

from my own personal feelings about the jws when i was involved and i was brought up in the is religious practice from birth, was one of feeling of being lied to, exploited and manipulated to a certain extent.
reflectively though i could see some wholesome social behavior direction being propagated not surprising nevertheless since this faith is based from christianity at its core.. where and how the wts/jws got bit corrupted i believe is that this organization has always had a publishing house and its core operation and supporting finances were mostly from that endeavoring operation.
this also included creating doctrines which were to support and enhance the proliferation of those published works.

the internet is a great tool as we all know.
i found this quote from the early book millions now living will never die to be very interesting as it seems to be the exact opposite of what jdubya's practice.
just another example of the double-speak they engage in.

i googled my childhood best friend that i grew up with in the cult.
he's my age and has shunned me for the past 4 years despite my efforts to reach out to him.today, i noticed a listing online that states he is a director of his congregation.
i suppose only elders can fill this position (he wasn't an elder when i was a jw).

1generation2groups made good observation,: jesus was talking to earthly hope believers, like their contemporaries.
but according to wt writers, "jesus had in mind" a greater fulfillment, where the earthly class would never pass away (flesh would be saved), but the anointed would be alive and witness part of the great tribulation, but die, resurrect, be gathered, raptured before the climatic armageddon.
so who could be left that will eventually pass away but be kept alive until "all these things" including armageddon ---occur?

i war reading an interesting research article about charles taze russell and all of his financial dealings.
this caught my eye:.
charles taze russell and the watchtower society were in deep business distress after the "busted" october 1914 prophecy failure, and particularly after the "busted" october 1915 prophecy failure.
