    10 min: If Someone Says, 'I'm Not Interested.' Audience discussion based on page 16 of the Reasoning book. Arrange for a publisher to demonstrate one or two of the published suggestions.

    This certainly explains why my wife had her 'reasoning book' out last night.

    When, when, when are they gonna 'update' that book!

    With zingers like:



    Then why is there stil lso much wickedness on earth? After Christ was enthroned, Satan and his demons were hurled out of heaven and down to the earth. (Rev. 12:12) Christ as King did not immediately proceed to destroy all who refused to acknowledge Jehovah’s sovereignty and himself as the Messiah. Instead, as he had foretold, a global preaching work was to be done. (Matt. 24:14) As King he would direct a dividing of peoples of all nations, those proving to be righteous being granted the prospect of everlasting life, and the wicked being consigned to everlasting cutting-off in death. (Matt. 25:31-46) In the meantime, the very difficult conditions foretold for “the last days” would prevail. As shown under the heading “Last Days,” those events have been clearly in evidence since 1914. Before the last members of the generation that was alive in 1914 will have passed off the scene, all the things foretold will occur, including the “great tribulation” in which the present wicked world will end.—Matt. 24:21, 22, 34.

    yknot: thats your error, you didnt keep the reasoning book in the fridge to prevent the spiritual food to go stale :-) . If you go back a few pages there is another piece of greatness:

    Popular Science (November 1979, p. 81) reports that physicist Robert Gentry “believes that all of the dates determined by radioactive decay may be off—not only by a few years, but by orders of magnitude.” The article points out that his findings would lead to the conclusion that “man, instead of having walked the earth for 3.6 million years, may have been around for only a few thousand.”

    What they do not say is that Robert Gentry is an adventist who believe the earth was created in a matter of hours 6000 years ago. So they are willing to accept a corollary as proof, but not the conclusion it rest on. its simply piss poor logic.
