    Would the Jehovah`s Witnesses be a shoe in , for the most about face , flip flop , of doctrine , beliefs , and practices in this 21st Century , to have previously strongly held beliefs and then for them to be discarded in their 140 ? or so . year history ?

    I think they take the cake .

    I read some where that they have predicted the end more times than any other religion in the last 100 plus years. They were even an answer on a game show about this type of thing.

    No, you're wrong. The society NEVER made any was just overly keen individuals that eagerly misunderstood matters...

    Or , it was actually God that got things wrong and told his spokesmen (the society) wrong information. God is very sorry for making those mistakes.


    The WTS would most definitely make the world record for flip flops. WT Aug 1917

    The WTS does not meet the criteria for the world record of flip flops. WT Sept 1932

    We can say with certainty that the WTS would make the world record for flip flops. WT June 1975

    The WTS would not ever meet the standards for the record for flip flops. WT May 1999

    I remember a post from JMG (The ArchDruid Report) where he was covering Apocalyptic religions in history,and when he got to JW's he said that they were in a class all their own. Most groups that promised but couldn't deliver, faded away into obscurity. He was amazed how the JW's had pulled it off multiple times.

    I will look for a link to the series he ran. I think it was snippets from a book he wrote that he included at the end of his regular posts a couple of years ago.

    Edit: looks like he was taking excerpts from this:
    One of his latest books is Apocalypse NOT: Everything You Know About 2012, Nostradamus and the Rapture is Wrong.

    They would be if anyone cared about their opinions.

    I think we have all learned that the universe could care less about this group..... they're just silly and sad......and also dangerous (blood, shunning, etc.)
