Antimatter not so different after all ... poor old Freddy wrong again,another light dims in the JW heavens.

    Back in the years after WW2, newly discovered antimatter was perceived as destroying ordinary matter, so in one of old Freddy's insane nightmares (forget which book, but it was the early 1950's) he envisioned YHWH-JESUS hurling antimatter at the hated humans who refused to submit to him, and destroying their bodies bit by bit.

    Now, his vision dims:

    Antimatter not so different after all

    Scientists help make first measurement of antiproton attraction

    November 4, 2015
    Rice University
    Researchers share the first measurements of the attractive force between antiprotons. The discovery gives physicists new ways to look at the forces that bind matter and antimatter.
    Kefeng Xin, a graduate student at Rice, is one of a handful of primary authors who revealed evidence this week that the attractive force between antiprotons is similar to that between protons -- and measured it.

    There's a quote somewhere in one of the JW publications, I think as late as the 70's or 80's, that has a quote something along these lines, referring to how the detritus of the "old system" would be cleaned up in the "new system".

    "something something something...the ruins of the old system will be removed, whether by antimatter or not, something something else..."

    It always struck me as so utterly odd and out of place. It was clearly one of Freddy's loonier thoughts.

    Quarks ,leptons newtrinos {I like to spell it that way!} An expert on the subject. And its not detrius it's deleterious!!
  • truthseeker100
    Does anyone know where the world's biggest newtrino observatory is? Sudbury Ontario! A Saturday night in that town will make any man humble!!

    Here it is the snippet of the funny JW-message - of course supported by a cherrypicked Scripture. This old fun stuff puts a smile on my face

    *** w60 4/1 p. 219 par. 25 Part 35—“Your Will Be Done on Earth” ***
    25 Studies have been made of the effect of cosmic rays on living cells in animal bodies, particularly with respect to disorders of the mind. What effect do they have or will they have on the way men behave here on earth? Certainly the Creator of cosmic rays, Jehovah God, could use these to affect the minds of his enemies, including the king of the north and the king of the south, and could drive them to mutual slaughter: “every man’s sword shall be against his brother.” (Ezek. 38:21, AS) In this prophecy God warns that he will also use other natural forces that are at his disposal, possibly a rain of antimatter that has the property of annihilating any material thing that it meets. He warns all scoffers that he will do an ‘unusual work.’—Isa. 28:21.

    Another one from 1971:

    *** kj chap. 20 p. 377 par. 22 Land of Magog No More to Threaten Mankind ***
    22 The fact that Jehovah leaves the bodies of those slain at the defeat of Gog’s attack lying exposed on the ground for birds and wild beasts to gorge themselves upon symbolizes that they will not be laid in respected memorial tombs in hope of a resurrection for them. The unburied dead, “those slain by Jehovah,” will be so enormously many that even the carrion birds and scavenging wild beasts could never take care of their consumption. The burial of even what remains after these lower creatures have their fill would be stupendous. Doubtless the Almighty God will use some highly scientific means, whether including antimatter or not, to dispose of the surplus of decaying bodies in a speedy and sanitary way. This remains for the survivors of the “war of the great day” to see and witness. We remember that Noah and his seven fellow survivors of the global Deluge were not burdened with burying the human victims of that world catastrophe after they came out of the ark and renewed Jehovah’s worship on earth.—Genesis 8:18-22.

    It probably behaves similarly, but it will still annihilate ordinary matter upon contact. You can tell, though, that the JW nonsense about god using antimatter to do his genocide was poorly researched, though. If he did that for just a single person the energy released would be enough to destroy the entire planet.

    Using anti-matter to clean up the Armageddon mess will really ruin your day. The meeting of the two will double the energy yield, and convert all completely into radiation. Even Armageddon survivors would need a resurrection, heaven would be a safer and automatic bet.
