Blondie, good points!
JW's get to pretend they are smart when they are merely gullible.
They see themselves as belonging to the Championship Team.
It isn't that THEY THEMSELVES can answer the questions, but they can reach for the handy dandy reference books which will.
Let's face it, there are a lot of religious folks (JW's and Ex-JW's) who have a superstitous sense of MAGIC about the Bible.
It is a totem and a fetish for them.
It glows with numinous complexities like a portal to eternity!
I watched a lecture Professor Bart Ehrman (New Testament scholar) was giving to a large audience.
He told them about his speech to new students.
He asked for a show of hands as he mentioned the titles of books.
One example: "How many of you have read Dan Brown's THE DIVINCI CODE?"
All hands went up.
"How many of you have read every word in the Bible cover to cover?" Much fewer hands.
He smiled and told them, "So you'll read a book of fiction which is almost entirely non-historical, but . . . God writes a book and . . ."
I think his message was clear.
The BIBLE is something we treat as a supernatural object. We, on some level, know it isn't an intellectual object.
