    Well, JWs are historically pretty weird.

    i think the same way as "we"

    as in--"as a JW , do you believe in ****"

    reply "--no--WE believe *****"

    it sounds defensive--exclusive..

    Ex JWS tend to be Polymaths

    JWs as well but they are taught to suppress and keep their studies to

    the Borg Pubs

    Rather sad

    Do you have the same reaction to the word "singularities," Schnell?

  • schnell

    No, mostly because, going beyond the questionable grammar, the use of "ones" is part of JW-speak, that distinct manner and style that wishes to be hypnotic. I've had enough "ones" and "is it not"s and find it mostly abhorrent.

    I think it's part of JW speech code for loyalists to ID each other (notice I didn't say "ID one another"? :smirk:)
