    A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.

    A quote that could be applied closely to the style of the wts 'change management'.

    Put another way...

    "We make stuff up and expect people to accept it as truth. When we change things we still expect people to accept it as truth.

    Those that can't accept it will die eventually and their children will not have known any other truth'.

    wheres caleb?

    Every member of the Governing Body that existed when I was at bethel is gone. Was in a congregation with two ex circuit overseers who were convinced that they would see the new world. They are gone.

    Had lunch with the former wife of Nathan Knorr, said he cried like a baby when he realized that everything they accepted as 'truth' was not going to happen in his lifetime.

    The blind could definitely benefit from 'light', but not when it's coming from the witnesses.
