JW Good News is merely B.S. Bad News demonstrably wrong (Here is the proof)

    Scare tactics generating fear of THE END is the core message of Jehovah's Witnesses.
    Predictions based on so-called Bible Prophecy is their mother's milk.

    "Critical times hard to deal with" flavors every book, article,pamphlet and conversation spoken by Dub on the doorstep.
    Indeed, all we hear anywhere seems to be Bad News. Are JW's right?


    If things are worse than ever it must be measurable and verifiable--right?
    In just the last 30 years, for instance, what are the Stats?
    For every one hundred thousand people in the U.S. the current murder rate is 5.3 but 30 years ago? 8.5.
    7% of Americans live in poverty today compared to 12% 30 years ago.
    21 million tons of particulate matter and 4 million tons of sulfer dioxide.
    30 years ago we emitted 35 million tons of particulate matter and 20 million tons of sulfer dioxide.
    In 2017 there were 12 ongoing wars. 60 Autocracies.
    10% of the world in extreme poverty and 10 thousand nuclear weapons.
    But, 30 years ago, there were 23 wars, 85 autocracies, 37% of the world in extreme poverty, and 60,780 nuclear weapons.
    In Western Europe last year 248 deaths due to Terrorism occurred.
    30 years previous, 440 deaths by comparison.

    Figures Don't Lie--but Liars Figure!

    The world, for all it's troubles is GETTING BETTER but Newspapers and Media make money
    by promoting the concept "If it Bleeds--it leads."

    Jehovah's Witnesses do the same.
    They scoop up new recruits by scaring them.
    For a Dub, this world has been ending since 1874. Over and over.
    An endless loop of misinformation, filtering out progress.
    The same old same old is really all the Dubs have to offer.
    Have you ever cornered a Witness and asked them to guess?
    I did--and you wouldn't believe how far off their guesses are--it's sad and hilarious simultaneously.

    FACTS and EVIDENCE things are getting better and better

    1. Malaria deaths have been cut in half since the year 2000.
    (400,000 would have died who were saved.)
    2. Polio has been 88% eradicated. In 1988 350,00 kids suffered with polio. Today: 40.
    3. 1.5 billion fewer people live in poverty in the world since 1970
    4. In the year 1770, the average lifespan was 29 years! Today the average is 71.
    5. In the year 1820, fewer than 1 in 10 people could read or write. Today, 8 out of 10 are literate.
    6. In 1820, 1.5% lived in a Democracy. Today, more than half are free to vote.
    7. Since 1990, 2.6 Billion people have access to clean water. That's 91% of the world.

    Earthquake Facts:
    The largest earthquake recorded was 58 years ago, 9.5 magnitude in Chile.
    Earthquakes have always been common at the rate of half a million detectable each and every year. Yes, 500,000 each and every year.
    100,000 can be felt but only about 100 cause damage.
    Southern California has 10K quakes annually.
    The deadliest recorded earthquake in history was in the year 1550 in China.

    So, as far as the FREQUENCY of Earthquakes predicting "The End"? Bullshit.
    Famines and Food shortages?
    90% of the world is now safe from poverty.
    Only naturally occurring disasters bring temporary emergencies with the world at large sending food, clothing and medical care in response.

    In 1966, the Watchtower began preaching OVERPOPULATION would definitely bring about worldwide starvation and signal Armageddon by 1975. I preached and taught it door to door.
    Guess what? Total bullshit!

    The Watchtower is a diabolical organization which suppresses Child Abuse statistics which hides the actual harm occurring inside the "safety" of the Kingdom Halls.
    At the same time, the Watchtower is exaggerating the danger in "the World", which they insist is ending soon.
    The true picture of this religion is that of manipulation and lies and ongoing distortion of reality.

    For some people, it feels like the world is "getting worse" - so for JWs, who in general prefer to feel rather than think, the prophecies are coming true.

    You can present all the (accurate!) statistics in the world to demonstrate your point, but statistics don't trump feelings.

    JWs feel the world is getting worse, and target their message to others who feel the same way.

  • TerryWalstrom
    Jehovah's Witnesses have a worldview they teach which is a harmful and pernicious hands-off policy.
    "What's the point in getting an education?" Armageddon is coming.
    "What's the point in technology or charity?" Armageddon will solve everything!
    Meanwhile, volunteers, medical specialists, scientists, engineers and humanitarians are busy with a different Worldview: "Why not deal with our problems?"

    The bottom line is clear: JW's aren't helping anybody but themselves! While the rest of humanity sees problems as a target for learning and progress by overcoming obstacles--the JW's hide in the basement waiting to be arrested by the Great Tribulation militia!

    An old saying: If you're not a part of the solution you're part of the problem.
    JW's are a problem. It's all about themselves--not others.

    When you critically examine the doctrinal teachings of the WTS they are wrong on many accounts, not just from known secular knowledge of whats been happening to mankind's living conditions but the wrongful theological propagation of Jesus's new kingdom to appear soon .

    The WTS self calculated the year of 1914 and what was going to come after that year was in itself an apostate doctrine according to the words and teaching of Jesus Christ.

    Its like someone wanted to deliberately proliferate literature and then intentionally devised selective information to accomplish and support their endeavor, disregarding secular knowledge as well the bible's own teachings and instructions for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Therefore the Watchtower Corporation and its adherent sales representatives (JWS) are indeed commercialized false prophet apostates.

    It IS getting worse!

    Gays are coming out of the closet, evolution is turning out to be true, and standard transmissions are being installed in less than 5% of new vehicles!

    It's horrible!!!

    (For manly men who grew up in manly times...)

    On a more relevant note, there is also a funny glitch in the human psyche wherein if one reads ten seperate news articles about the same event, the subconscious sort-of interprets it as ten seperate events.


  • TerryWalstrom

    I once listened to a discussion among newspaper editors talking about the early morning meetings with staff in which--in the office--all events are filtered before any are published.
    The Editor decides what IS and ISN'T "important."
    That struck me at the time.
    "Oh!" Why was I surprised?
    I think I know why.
    I suddenly realized billions of events occur every single day and each and every one of those is important locally and individually. It is the POV of writers and publishers as to what is newsworthy, what the "meaning" is, and significance is attributed in much the manner of a Star Chamber judicial gathering.
    The reader--final link in the chain--takes the result as a "given." It simply IS.

    Silly, huh?

    I find it odd that under the subheading
    FACTS and EVIDENCE things are getting better and better
    that the info in number 7 doesn't add up. Read it slowly and then think how many people are on the earth and then try and correlate that with 91%

    "7. Since 1990, 2.6 Billion people have access to clean water. That's 91% of the world."

    Now if it would have said 2.6 Billion "more" people that would have been more believable.
