    Notice how when they want to use what scientists say they are respected, in contrast to their being blinded by Satan atheists when what they say isn't what they want. I also thought it was interested they would say "Type the phrase "end of the world" and the year "2012" into one popular Internet search engine". I thought they want to discourage use of the internet. Do they really want them to peruse About 10,200,000 results (0.17 seconds) wouldn't that take to much time away from bible study and preaching the good news?

    And i am sure some porn site would pop up and grab them.

    this from the august 1st public watch tower - Respected scientists, such as Stephen Hawking, professor emeritus at the University

    of Cambridge, and Sir Martin Rees, Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge,

    echo those stark warnings. They feel that mismanagement of technology and the human impact on

    the environment may irreversibly change life on earth or even end civilization.

    Predictions of doom worry millions. Type the phrase "end of the world" and the year "2012"

    into one popular Internet search engine, and you will discover hundreds of pages of speculation

    about the end coming in that year. Why so? An ancient Maya calendar, known as "the Long

    Count," is calculated to end in the year 2012. Many fear that this somehow signals the end of

    civilization as we know it.

    Religious views Hawking takes an agnostic position on matters of religion. [51][52] He has repeatedly used the word "God" (in metaphorical meanings) [53] to illustrate points made in his books and public speeches. His ex-wife, Jane, however, said during their divorce proceedings that he was an atheist. [54][55] Hawking has stated that he is "not religious in the normal sense" and he believes that "the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws." [51] Hawking compared religion and science in 2010, saying: "There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works." [56]

    Why they didn't say:

    "Type the phrase "end of the world" and the year "1975" into one popular Internet search engine"

    "end of the world 1975" ( 5,130,000 results )

    "end of the world 2012" ( 6,940,000 results)

    Thx for posting this, Booby. The idiocy surrounding yet another "Doomsday" date needs to be debunked... Having said that, I shall proceed to express my personal opinion of the hooplah over 2012...

    Oooh, for Pete's sake...

    So many mis-statements of what 2012 actually meant in the Mayan calendar...

    Yeah, it's the "long-count" level... But 2012 just means that a major epoch - NOT in the geological sense - is coming to an end...

    Whereupon, if the Mayans were still functioning as a viable, independent Native American civilization, the Mayan calendar would begin all over again...

    Sort of like the switch from 1999 to 2000... And we all saw how (((scary))) that turned out to be...

    Hah, hah! Good one, Titus!!!

  • booby

    yup. I really think they should leave the "type the phrase into one popular search engine" alone.

  • booby

    oops!! type in watchtower and cult. About 2,460,000 results (0.19 seconds)

  • ziddina

    "oops!! type in watchtower and cult. About 2,460,000 results...[!!!]"

    LOLOL!!! And yet they can't see that...

  • loosie

    why would they even encourage people to type in anything into a search engine... when they think the internet is a tool of the devil?!?!?!

  • booby

    loosie - I am beginning to think the answer to your question and many others is "they are not to bright". Certainly the dumb things they do and say lays to waste the claim of being guided by holy spirit.

    Titus I love you
