    that near the core of the religious experience is something remarkably resistant to rational inquiry."

    Thanks for the Sagan quote, Daneil-P. I think high-control sects and cult-like religions push the envelope beyond "resistant to rational inquiry" to totally blind to rational inquiry. These religions do all they can to remove the eyes of believers. The blind following the blind becomes a fulfilled prophecy with groups like Jehovah's Witnesses.

    They are living in the Dark Ages, and want to plunge everyone else into the Second Dark Ages. After the failure of 1914, they are still using a close date as a tool to threaten initiatory force to get people into their Dark Ages. And they are not going to give up until they have successfully got the whole world into it.

    I went home and asked myself "If we keep saying the world is about to end, doesn't it actually have to end some time?" I couldn't come up with any internally logical response to my own question.

    The world has yet to end.

    It's really close now though.

    Just consider these warnings, that were written not more than around 20, 30 years ago:

    (Zeph 1:14) "The great day of the Lord is near, near and hastening fast."

    (Joel 1:15) "Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is near,
    and as destruction from the Almighty it comes."

    (1. Pet 4:7) "The end of all things is near."

    (1. Cor 7:29) "What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short."

    1. Cor 10:11 "Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come."

    What...? Wait - - - that wasn't written 20, 30 years ago? -A hundred times farther back, you say? Oh.

    Jeff T - nice thread - I spotted from what you and others said

    2 Things:

    1) 1914 is the end of the world and take it up the @r$e!

    Oops - didn't you notice it was the invisisible man ending the invisible trouble in the heavens who did you?

    2) JeffT '..unknown to me so was my wife..'

    So each, even when sleeping in the same bed, are doing all their questions and answers without talking to each other about it - in essence sleeping together but minds apart!

    This is the essence of the WTBTS!

    They get you sleeping with them but minds apart!

    They are the perfect example of man dominating man to his injury

    They are also the perfect example of scribes and pharisees - hypocrites! whitewashed graves.

    Making rules beyond scripture.

    Thanks to 1975 I still don't have a college education.

    I hope the False Prophets are happy with themselves right now.
