    Then you'll easily be able to point to a reference for such a statistic ... right?

    Or is it just one of these "surely it must be so!" claims that you just wish were the case? (for some macabre reason)

    You think I have a macabre reason for suggesting that perhaps the JWs over represent in trade work? You sound pathetic.

    In Australia I can point to the national Census data. The JWs do predominately work in construction.

    But what you were suggesting is that they were over-represented in suicides. I was quite legitimately asking you to verify that claim by pointing to the numbers. But of course you cannot.

    Who cares if JWs are over-represented in construction? It's useful skills and productive work.

    Your reasoning requires several leaps to reach a conclusion without basis. It would be just as valid to claim that JWs must have fewer suicide or accidental deaths because they value life / are careful due to their beliefs.

    I'm not saying that, I'm showing what you can do if evidence isn't required.

    You don’t do logic very well. Or perhaps read again what I write. I stated that suicide is more common among those working in construction.

    This is true.

    I said construction is a probably a common occupation for JWs, they might have a high representation in these jobs.

    In Australia, this is true, census data confirms it.

    Most importantly, I actually fucking said I don’t believe suicide is more common among JWs. I said it, let it sink in.. you have twisted fucking reasoning.

    I don’t think suicides would be higher among JWs. It’s taught that suicide is a major sin and risks no resurrection so this could be factored in.

    If suicide was an absolute ticket to the ‘New System’, I think we might see higher rates but the WT has never taught that. They actually suggest the opposit

    You’re inventing an argument.. a logical person will notice I’ve never suggested that JWs are more prone to suicide(actually I stated the fucking opposite) and any rise in suicide could anyhow be atributed to occupation and NOT the religion. I quoted Steve2, he was talking statistics.. notice the context and I how I wasn’t ever dogmatic, enjoying constructive conversation with the adults until I was blasted out of context. The point, obviously lost on you, was that there are so many factors it’s silly to speculate.

    Keep ranting though, it’s intriguing.
