    I remember the old Paradise book very well and still have one. The 7,000 year creative days caused me all sorts of problems at school in the 50's and early 60's. I used to tell my teachers that fossils of animals could only be 13,000 years old max! No wonder they thought JW's were nutters!

    Once again a case of quietly changing doctrine and pretending they never taught such twaddle.

    Paradise Lost to Paradise Regained, was frightening. I would much rather my kids read Harry Potter.

    I always wondered why Nimrod was depicted as being black, and how on earth he managed to be accompanied by a wizened white wizard... all while Noah's sons were still around...

    I remember the "Paradise" book like it was yesterday. Our daughter was only two years old Clyde and I were reading to her out of that book, and before we knew it she was reading herself. We were so proud that she could read quite well by the time she was four. I remember looking at that picture and saying some like, "Bad people--die at Armageddon." When our next child was born, a son, we tried to teach him to read the same way, and all he would do was hit the book and try to tear the pages. Well, our daughter is still a staunch witness, waiting for Armageddon to strike us dead--but our son, who wanted to tear the book up when he was little, wants nothing to do with the organization.

    Oh I also remember how clearly the book explained the 70 or 80 year generation, and I even used that book to study with several people.

    Well, at least these "Worldly" bastards had the good fortune to die next to Brother So and So's Buick Century. Now available for purchase from Circuit Leasing.

    I remember that book. My mom studied it with my sister and me when we were to young to read. It was scary and very boring to us. I hated that book.

    Sooner was that picture from the book? I can't remember it.

    What's Humphrey Bogart doing in that picture?

    Check out the expression on the Fresh Prince of Bel Aire in the lower right corner.

    This picture would be better if Kyria's cat was in it.

    That picture is from "You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth" which was published in about 1984.

    My favorite part of YCLFiPoE was the spiritistic/demonic part with the fortune teller and the medium from Endor raising up someone (Saul?).

    That's not Humphrey Bogart, it's Eddie the detective from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
