    Absolutely YES.

    At least that's how I felt when I was a little kid sitting through 7 and 8 day assemblies in the middle of summer in Yankee Stadium. They didn't end until 9 PM and we had nearly a 2 hour drive to get home, get some sleep, so we could leave again in the morning.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but my hunch is that the Brooklyn Boys leave these things open to conjecture as a matter of policy. Leaving each of the rank and file to imagine their own version of paradise serves the society's purpose well, reinforcing mind control by strengthening the carrot effect.

    Dang!.....that was a pretty sharp answer coming from a guy who smokes dried extracted gumtree sap. I'm proud of ya..... ya big lumberjack bastard.

    I remember only one article that went into overpopulation of the earth. It stated that when the earth was filled to Jehovahs satisfaction (tm) ( I can't do the tm thing like he does), then Jehovah will make all men sterile somehow. You'll be able to breed like a little viagra infested bunnyrabbit......but you'll just shoot blanks.

    The NS always seemed a bit unfair to me. There would be two classes, those that could have sex and those that were resurrected that couldn't. I know that sexual appetite is going to be removed fro those ones but it still feels unjust. It would still create a division within NS society.

    Why would people carry on having children in the NS, the numbers resurrected would more than make up the numbers.

    So much of that "new system" bologna didn't make any sense. It didn't matter, though, because when you got backed into a corner over the sheer numbers of people, the sexual (lived through the Big A) humans and the non-sexual (resurrected clone) humans, how all of these people would actually live without most of the conveniences of modern times, blah, blah, blah....you could always pull out the magic God card to end the discussion.

    Hey Gumby, I was taught the same thing, if you and your marraige partner enver died, and live through amegubbin, you would still be able to not only have sex, but have children. The excuse was, if all the unrighteous were destroyed, then people would still have to fill the earth and subdue it

    A close Elder friend of mine, Sylvano, had visions of populating a planet of his own* – his wife was not at all impressed and sometimes I chided him about “the planet of the Sylvanos.

    Only, shows what wild speculations come from the mouths of the "spiritual elite." Sounds like he really wanted to be a Mormon...with many wives and GOD in his own universe.

    After I learned what the Mormons believed and later the Scientologists, the WTS seemed tame, until I started reading Russell's and Rutherford's books. That made me head for the exit door.
