    They certainly don't act or speak as if they had college degrees.They're in control ok but not due to their education.....the only qualifications required to be a GB member is having total blind loyalty to the organization and the mystical belief that the Bible is more important than evidence or logic.

    Yes they all have Phd.s in self empowering Bullshit.

    They are the top executive directors of a corrupt maligning, fear mongering religious publishing house. The Watchtower Corporation

    It's a fair question. Business degrees, philosophy or religion? Sociology? Psychology? ANYTHING?

    It isn't the absolute criterion for acceptable leadership. They may simply be good at delegating the "heavy work" to somebody who knows more than they do, but it would be interesting to know what academic background is to be found among the leaders of millions of people.

    Apparently, Jesus learned woodworking under Joseph's tutoring, a respectable trade. He sat at the feet of the religious leaders of the time at the synagogue. Also respectable. As far as I know, Jesus never boasted his creds, but he had some, at least!

    Russell gave himself the title of "Pastor" with no formal education or seminary school.

    Rutherford. have himself the title of "Judge" with no formal education or law school.

    If Knorr could have giving himself a title it would have been "King" Knorr. Yet he had no royal blood.

    So there you have the first 100 years of the powers that be at the lord's house

    Considering the level of quality of his video presentations, I suspect that Lett may have finished Kindergarten.

    I believe the only two converts are Losch and Morris. These two almost certainly would have completed high school. Morris of course is a Vietnam vet. Losch a waiter. I'm guessing the others, as born-ins possibly completed high school *at most*.

    So there you have it. I think Morris converted latest so he's the only one who may have.

    How do you know that? That would be significant if it can be documented. Please provide your evidence and/or source(s).
