Evolution is not even a theory! So says the WTBTS writing dept!!

    Ummm, Simonsays, you do know how to read, right? How can you costrue any of what you said from the thread title?

    What meds are you on? Do you need me to drive you to the Doctor for some?

    What do you mean by "commoner", are you saying I'm a commoner or peasant? Do you imply that I have "commonage", the right to pasture livestock??

    That was such a bizarre sidebar in that article.

    "It's not even a theory", and then 3 or 4 ridiculous assertions that are laughably false and can be refuted by any nincompoop with the most rudimentary of Google skills in less than 30 seconds.

    Is that really how far the writing department has fallen?

    It's articles like this that make me feel so stupid for ever believing the theology of this ridiculous cult.

    This was my letter.

    I thought about posting it here but never got around to it. I'm not so active on here anymore.

    If Anyone is interested my letter made zero impression on my Dad. After reading it he still thinks there is no evidence for evolution and he doesn't understand how anyone could believe on it (he referred to Corinthians 4:4).

    He qlso said after reading my email there are no creationist arguments against evolution he would no longer use. He still thinks there are no transitional fossils! Even after I described Tiktaalik and Archaeopteryx

    One point he did concede is that he would no longer call evolution a theory. Not because of anything I wrote but because of the August 2015 Awake article


    Apparantly evolution isn't even atgeory...I've asked several times to explain how evolution is not a theory and all he does is refer mW to the Awake article.

    I think he still doesn't understand what a theory is

    I put together this response to the August Awake article

    Thanks, Cleanliness.

    I've another in the works about a current video on JW.Org. 'can you trust the Bible'. It goes into the flood and ancient cosmology

    Frankly, I'm amazed sometimes that they acknowledge that the Earth orbits the Sun.
    They do say that where the bible says the earth is 'a circle hanging on nothing' (ie: flat and maybe supported from underneath), it means the same as 'a sphere held by gravity'.

    Which is kind of perverse really.
