    Interesting article to be studied the day after the failed Judgement Day 2011. I wonder if that was pure luck or planned in order to capitalize on the failure of some nutjob prophesying dates?

    I'm guessing that there were three typical responses to this article:

    1. The hardcore, die-hard, believing JW will point to Saturday's failure and then the paragraphs that quote "no one knows the day or hour" and feel justified in their continued support of the WTS. Another reason to remain loyal to the "one, true organization". Maybe 10 to 15 percent of attendees came away with that attitude.

    2. A minority of people, but an ever increasing minority as time passes, have the opposite reaction. Again 10 to 15 percent of attendees. They feel a discomfort. They squirm in their seats. Something nags at them. They realize toward the end of the study that even though JWs don't point to a particular day or hour as this Harold Camping did, they do keep pushing for followers to remaing alert to world events that signify the end anytime. This attitude is not much different than Camping's group. They finally are able to cognizantly question, "Are we really any different than Camping and his followers?"

    3. but the typical response of 80% plus/minus of the group is: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    10 Noah, his wife, his sons, and their wives may have

    worked on building the ark for some 50 years.

    That's why we need to be patient, for god's sake. If you are even thinking about being concerned about how long it takes, just don't forget that Noah may have worked 50 years on the ark. (Let's see....1879 to 2011...)

    The door to door work gives us all something to do while we wait.

    More speculation on the WTBTS' part. Are we to believe that Noah was not a 'good Samaritan' type? That he nor his sons would have come to their fellow mans aid in their day!

    It would be nice if someone could enlarge and post the illustration on page 25 of the 3/15/2011 WT study article for all to see how Noah and Sons are depicted as displaying a 'could care less' attitude.

    In the foreground of the illustration Noah is trying to get his sons to concentrate on what appear to be architect plans of building the ark while just outside their door in the background several women are being pysically abused and about to be taken to be raped while another bully is beating someone else up. All the while Noah and his sons act like nothing is happening; not wanting to lift a finger to help another human being out in their time of need.

    Really! No wonder JWs do not get involved. So lesson learned from the illustration is that JWs are not like the good Samaritan. Way to go WTBTS.

    Great sourcing, guys. Every child born today has a one in five chance of dying of heart disease (old age).
