    mho. let us say that there is a creator. but he **/ she has not really communicated directly with anyone we know (all religious claims notwithstanding). How would we know anything about her? we would have to look at the results, works stat stare us in the face.

    The primitive deep animal/human attachment that has been able to develop from that creative past would be a reliable guide.

    wt would hate to be bettered by the inarticulate beasts that speak louder than overlapping generation drivel. and

    provide emotional support when wt's fear tactics fail.

    ** Our understanding of deep time, energy-non-origin is so profound, that it is best to just be in awe.

    The cat's beam eyes! Of course we love our animals. No, of course they are not human, but they can give us plenty of love and comfort. Sometimes more than humans in our circle do.

    Animals don't have feelings? Really? Then why does a dog walk away real slow with his head down when he's about to get scolded for getting into something he shouldn't have. He hasn't even been given shit and he knows he's done something to upset you. Or the dog that knows your not well and doesn't leave your side. The dog that laid at his dead master's grave site mourning for his master. Dam right animals have feelings.

    If the org could make money off our pets every time they went to die and we got top dollar for their pelts and sent the money into them then they would sing a different tune. Such assholes and the ones sitting there listening to this crap are even bigger dummies. It's the children I feel sorry for. They are forced to put up with this garbage.

    Remember the WTS sets up authorities on children that have never had children and see them as a barrier to getting to know god after all Jesus never had children. The bible is a book that encourages parents to physically chastise their children, have the Israelite soldiers kill everything breathing (including babies in and outside the womb), killing minor children of non-jws eternally because they happened to be born at the wrong time, etc. A god like that must think that animals have no feelings because the WTS and its trained members have no love for humans.

    I dont know what the WTS/JWorg. is on about, there is clear indication that pets pray to god too along with their owners.

    Pets should be disfellowshipped.
