knowsnothing.. That question actualy made me think..
well lets say it was real - since in my head the flood really happened. didnt Noa preach to everyone, and no one listened?
Mrbuny, besides the bible, would you say you have confirmation in the real world that the flood happened?
I'll provide you with a line of reasoning that refutes the flood, especially the dates accepted for the flood from WT and another Christian apologist.
This involves tree-ring dating. When you count the rings of a tree, you can accurately date the tree. It has some drawbacks at times, but is mostly a sound discipline.
The tree, which was at least 4862 years old and possibly more than 5000 years, was cut down in 1964 by a graduate student and United States Forest Service personnel for research purposes
The year 1964 - 4862 years = 2898 BCE
The two dates I've seen so far are Masse 2807 B.C. and WT 2370 BCE.
Masse is pretty close, but this blows away the WT date.
And about the muslems, how do you know that God wants to destroy them?
This is not about JW's alone. Christianity's claims to being the only means for salvation also apply here. I'll give you bible text and all.
1 John 2:23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
Muslims deny Jesus as the Son of God. By "devaluing" him as a mere prophet and stripping him of his divinity, according to Christianity and JW's too, they cannot reach salvation.
In the coming Armageddon, Jehovah is just itching to kill them (if you believe the JW interpretation). I ask, what exactly did these people do wrong except get brought up in that religion? Can you blame someone for believing something they were taught since little?
