    *** Know Jehovah chap. 20 p. 377 Land of Magog No More to Threaten Mankind ***

    The fact that Jehovah leaves the bodies of those slain at the defeat of Gog’s attack lying exposed on the ground for birds and wild beasts to gorge themselves upon symbolizes that they will not be laid in respected memorial tombs in hope of a resurrection for them. The unburied dead, "those slain by Jehovah," will be so enormously many that even the carrion birds and scavenging wild beasts could never take care of their consumption. The burial of even what remains after these lower creatures have their fill would be stupendous. Doubtless the Almighty God will use some highly scientific means, whether including antimatter or not, to dispose of the surplus of decaying bodies in a speedy and sanitary way. This remains for the survivors of the "war of the great day" to see and witness. We remember that Noah and his seven fellow survivors of the global Deluge were not burdened with burying the human victims of that world catastrophe after they came out of the ark and renewed Jehovah’s worship on earth.—Genesis 8:18-22.


    w60 4/1 p. 219 Part 35: "Your Will Be Done on Earth" ***

    Studies have been made of the effect of cosmic rays on living cells in animal bodies, particularly with respect to disorders of the mind. What effect do they have or will they have on the way men behave here on earth? Certainly the Creator of cosmic rays, Jehovah God, could use these to affect the minds of his enemies, including the king of the north and the king of the south, and could drive them to mutual slaughter: "every man’s sword shall be against his brother." (Ezek. 38:21, AS) In this prophecy God warns that he will also use other natural forces that are at his disposal, possibly a rain of antimatter that has the property of annihilating any material thing that it meets. He warns all scoffers that he will do an ‘unusual work.’—Isa. 28:21.

    You can thank Fred Franz for off the wall comments like this in print.

    I can remember a speaker once saying that perhaps antimatter would be used to dissolve all the concrete left on earth.

    I wonder if that was in Hezekiah 23:2?

    And they say the WTS is against science fiction!

    Any anti-matter is very short-lived and I mean truly short-lived, think of thousandth of a second. It can be created only in a lab under very strict conditions. By its very definition it cannot exist in our galaxy and I would dare to say our type of universe either. Simply because any "touch" of anti-matter and matter would result in self-destruction of BOTH.
    But reading these articles reinforces my belief that watchtower is written by half-literate morons who don't know what a f*** they are talking about. Remember that article from 1930s about "electronic energy" lmao
    But of course, when you are dismissive enough or adamant enough about something then even less schooled people tend to believe. Which really boggles my mind but its true.

    They will have to ban aluminum in the new system too -wasnt that a Freddie gem?

  • Poztate

    The "Your Will Be Done" book published in 1958 and no doubt written by "flakey freddy franz"™ had a reference to the use of antimatter to destroy his foes

    Quote... In this prophecy god warns that he will also use other natural forces that are at his disposal,POSSIBLY a rain of anti-matter that has the property of annihilating any material thing that it meets.He warns all scoffers(that would be me) that he will do an unusual work.

    I am still waiting freddy...Have you got that anti-matter ray gun in heaven almost up and ready to use.... OOPS...Just saw that Blondie's quote from the 60 WT was taken from YWBD.

    In the two nacelles you can see the antimatter storage pods and below you will find the antimatter injection reactors that feed the single cochrane warp core and the subatomic unified enegry impulse engines. Antimatter-enriched dilithium crystals are inert until they are placed in the bosonic spread array that produces a quantum phase shift, producing a space-field warp resulting from the reaction of antimatter and matter. Apparently, Jehovah will utilize a delivery system similar to the above to ensure the limited domain of matter annihilation. Antimatter will prove to be an effective means of cleaning up six million corpses and nuclear waste, as the quantum reaction will avoid any radiant energy produced by their destruction (i.e. avoiding the release of energy expected through E=mc 2 ). Then Jehovah in his space ship will bring Jesus our King to rule the earth.

    Gosh I miss Franz. (hehe, which one?)

    Thanks Blondie,

    The keepers of all Jesus possessions have always taken a keen interest in how particles collide on the atomic scale, such collisions are omnipresent with most light that we see being either due to or influenced by such collisions.

    If the boys in Brooklyn basement can just solve the quantum mechanic equations for collisions between particles they may yet create the pure energy needed for a quick decisive attack on all earth's anti-witnesses™

    The race between the evil worldly scientists and Jehovah's radio active men becomes more urgent when one considers that theoretically, one gram of positrons can lift one mega-tonne 300km above the earth, well within the vicinity in which Jesus and Joe Rutherford's forces are encamped. The problem Bethel scientists are having centres around developing the discrimination mechanism for the 144,001 anti matter positron beam guns required. So far they have only managed to create a few hundred thousand positrons but Armageddon requires about 6,000,000,000.

    Anti matter eh.. and I think there was some speculation about Jehovah arming the 144,001 with a bag full of neutron bombs too. Come to think of it the neutron bomb may have constituted new light™

    The Neutron Bomb was developed during Jimmy carters Presidency and lauded for killing all us wrigglies but leaving the real estate in tact. I can imagine Bethelite's excitement over this new development – I mean even in the the new system they don't plan leaving the Brooklyn stronghold.

    Damn Leolaia, ya beat me to it.

    The matter/antimatter injectors. Exactly what I was thinking.

    Antimatter is matter that is composed of the antiparticles of those that constitute normal matter. In 1929 - 31 , Paul Dirac put forward a theory that for each type of particle , there is an antiparticle for which each additive quantum number has the negative of the value it has for the normal matter particle. The sign reversal applies only to quantum numbers (properties) which are additive, such as charge , but not to mass , for example. So, the antiparticle of the normal electron is called the positron , as it has a positive charge, but the same mass as the electron. An atom of antihydrogen , for instance, is composed of a negatively-charged antiproton being orbited by a positively-charged positron . Paul Dirac's theory has been experimentally verified and today a wide range of antiparticles have been detected. This is one of the few examples of a fundamental particle being predicted in theory and later discovered by experiment. If a particle/antiparticle pair comes in contact with each other, the two annihilate and produce a burst of energy , which may manifest itself in the form of other particles and antiparticles or electromagnetic radiation . In these reactions, rest mass is not conserved, although (as in any other reaction), mass-energy is conserved.

    Scientists in 1995 succeeded in producing anti-atoms of hydrogen , and also antideuteron nuclei , made out of an antiproton and an antineutron , but no anti-atom more complex than antideuteron has been created yet. In principle, sufficiently large quantities of antimatter could produce anti-nuclei of other elements, which would have exactly the same properties as their positive-matter counterparts. However, such a " periodic table of anti-elements" is thought to be, at best, highly unlikely, as the quantities of antimatter required would be, quite literally, astronomical.

    Antiparticles are created elsewhere in the universe where there are high-energy particle collisions, such as in the center of our galaxy , but none have been detected that are residual from the Big Bang , as most normal matter is [1] ( . The unequal distribution between matter and antimatter in the universe has long been a mystery. The solution likely lies in the violation of CP-symmetry by the laws of nature [2] ( .

    Positrons and antiprotons can individually be stored in a device called a Penning trap , which uses a combination of magnetic field and electric fields to hold charged particles in a vacuum . Two international collaborations ( ATRAP and ATHENA ) used these devices to store thousands of slowly moving antihydrogen atoms in 2002. It is the goal of these collaborations to probe the energy level structure of antihydrogen to compare it with that of hydrogen as a test of the CPT theorem . One way to do this is to confine the anti-atoms in an inhomogenous magnetic field (one cannot use electric fields since the anti-atom is neutral) and interrogate them with lasers . If the anti-atoms have too much kinetic energy they will be able to escape the magnetic trap, and it is therefore essential that the anti-atoms are produced with as little energy as possible. This is the key difference between the antihydrogen that ATRAP and ATHENA produced, which was made at very low temperatures , and the antihydrogen produced in 1995 which was moving at a speed close to the speed of light .

    Antimatter/matter reactions have practical applications in medical imaging, see Positron emission tomography (PET). In some kinds of beta decay , a nuclide loses surplus positive charge by emitting a positron (in the same event, a proton becomes a neutron, and neutrinos are also given off). Nuclides with surplus positive charge are easily made in a cyclotron and are widely generated for medical use.


    Physicists need a notation to distinguish particles from antiparticles. One way is to denote an antiparticle by adding a bar (or macron ) over the symbol for the particle. For example, the proton and antiproton are denoted as p and

    Another convention is to distinguish particles by their electric charge . Thus, the electron and positron are denoted simply as e - and e + . Adding a bar over the e + symbol would be redundant and is not done.

    Antimatter as fuel

    In antimatter-matter collisions, the entire rest mass of the particles is converted to energy . The energy per unit mass is about 10 orders of magnitude greater than chemical energy, and about 2 orders of magnitude greater than nuclear energy that can be liberated today using chemical reactions or nuclear fission/fusion respectively. The reaction of 1 kg of antimatter with 1 kg of matter would produce 1.8×10 17 J of energy (by the equation E=mc²). In contrast, burning a kilogram of gasoline produces 4.2×10 7 J, and nuclear fusion of a kilogram of hydrogen would produce 2.6×10 15 J. Not all of that energy can be utilized by any realistic technology, because as much as 50% of energy produced in reactions between nucleons and antinucleons is carried away by neutrinos , so, for all intents and purposes, it can be considered lost. [3] (

    The scarcity of antimatter means that it is not readily available to be used as fuel, although it could be used in antimatter catalyzed nuclear pulse propulsion . Generating a single antiproton is immensely difficult and requires particle accelerators and vast amounts of energy—millions of times more than is released after it is annihilated with ordinary matter, due to inefficiencies in the process. Known methods of producing antimatter from energy also produce an equal amount of normal matter, so the theoretical limit is that half of the input energy is converted to antimatter. Counterbalancing this, when antimatter annihilates with ordinary matter energy equal to twice the mass of the antimatter is liberated—so energy storage in the form of antimatter could (in theory) be 100% efficient. Antimatter production is currently very limited, but has been growing at a nearly geometric rate since the discovery of the first antiproton in 1955[4] ( . The current antimatter production rate is between 1 and 10 nanograms per year, and this is expected to increase dramatically with new facilities at CERN and Fermilab . With current technology, it is considered possible to attain antimatter for $ 25 billion per gram (roughly 1,000 times more costly than current space shuttle propellants) by optimizing the collision and collection parameters, given current electricity generation costs. Antimatter production costs, in mass production, are almost linearly tied in with electricity costs, so economical pure-antimatter thrust applications are unlikely to come online without the advent of such technologies as deuterium -deuterium fusion power.

    Since the energy density is vastly higher than these other forms, the thrust to weight equation used in antimatter rocketry and spacecraft would be very different. In fact, the energy in a few grams of antimatter is enough to transport an unmanned spacecraft to Mars in about a month—the Mars Global Surveyer took eleven months to reach Mars. It is hoped that antimatter could be used as fuel for interplanetary travel or possibly interstellar travel , but it is also feared that if humanity ever gets the capabilities to do so, there could be the construction of antimatter weapons .

    Antimatter in popular culture

    A famous fictional example of antimatter in action is in the science fiction franchise Star Trek, where it is a common energy source for starships . Antimatter engines also appear in various books of the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey . Dan Brown explores the use of antimatter as a weapon in his novel Angels and Demons, where terrorists threaten to destroy the Vatican with an antimatter bomb stolen from CERN . In The Nights Dawn Trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton , antimatter is characterized as the most dangerous substance imaginable and outlawed across the Galaxy.

    That`s clear: This was an April fool`s joke.... WT-studies have been very interesting, exciting and amusing in those days, compared to 2006. Oh dear me...
