    Ever wonder why JWs are such suckers for a conspiracy theory? If you think any of their doctrines or beliefs through for long enough, there's usually some for of conspiracy thrown in.

    I thought I'd give this email a whirl to test their credulity:

    Are you a conspiracy theorist? You should be!

    As the last days wear on, our adversary the devil is seeking ever more sophisticated ways to draw us away from the truth. His machinations, or “crafty acts”, go beyond personal attacks on our faith. Over thousands of years, Satan has schemed to discredit Jehovah’s organization, sometimes involving extensive planning. Lets take a look at an example.

    In order to distract people from the pivotal date of 1914 and all its significance, Satan set about falsifying historical evidence in order to obfuscate the fulfilment of prophecy. As all Jehovah’s Witnesses are aware, a period of 2520 years separates the destruction of Jerusalem and the presence of Christ and his arrival in Kingdom power. Thousands of stone tablets, the records of countless civilizations and even astronomical evidence witness all testify that Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586/7 BCE. If we count back 2520 years from 1914 we arrive at the year 607BCE. Secular history shows that Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon who lead the siege against Jerusalem, did not even become King of Babylon until two years later, in 605BCE. What could account for this apparent discrepancy?

    The only possibility is that Satan the Devil has falsified thousands of pieces of historical evidence, successfully moved the heavenly bodies and removed a period of 20 years. Satan successfully rewrote history to discredit Jehovah’s organization in order that 2500 years later, people would reject the evidence of the fulfillement of prophecy in relation to Christ’s presence. Check any encyclopaedia or history book and you will see this subterfuge for yourself.

    Never underestimate our adversary Satan the Devil.

    I think old Satan was up to his tricks long ago, look at all the fossil and wealth of other evidence he planted to make it look like evolution is true !

    LOL. That would be too funny. I'd like to see how long it would take before it filtered through to my email. Throwing in a line about the damage Satan has done to the fossil evidence would be a nice touch.

    I think you just created the theme for a future Watchtower magazine article!

    I think you could have a great career at wtbs writing department. lol ;)

    but seriously it's actually sad. Witnesses are predisposed to such way of thinking more than most. The whole wtbs cognitive framework is formed along conspiracies, collusion etc, that require high level of imagination and day dreaming to make them work. I guess that's why even after leaving many still stick to fantasizing and don't see any problem in forming highly improbable conclusions often citing at best highly dubious and flimsy "evidence"...
    And then to top it all off they rely on their "common sense" forgetting their entire common sense i.e. a way of evaluating evidence, has been molded for them and created proclivity toward seeking out "realities" that fit such way of thinking as well as people who think like them. I guess that's why we still see conspiracy theories often promoted even on this board. No wonder many are still stuck in mud, and lives of many still suck...
