God Did Not Make Us *#@$% Termites!

    Hello Watchtower Fans!

    Here's a revelation:

    We're NOT ants or termites or bees or a school of fish! We're HUMANS!

    In observing insects and fish, it has often been suggested that some species demonstrate a kind of collective or distributed

    intelligence, a sort of species-mind that enables them to perform complex tasks. There have been serious suggestions

    about a sort of 'ESP' that guides whole colonies as a single individual.

    Well, if God created this, He certainly didn't CREATE HUMANS WITH THIS DESIGN!

    We stand on our own two feet as individuals and not members of a hive.

    Sadly, the Hive Mentality seems to be EXACTLY what the Watchtower wants.

    The more they try to force people into this mould, the more they violate the human intended design.

    Sit thru any Service Meeting and see if the word "drone" comes to mind...

    It's been observed that people who form a mob often act irrationally and in ways that they wouldn't individually. It's called "mob mentality", and the underlying psychology is an "us versus them" mentality that demonizes someone who is different than you.

    Also in times of war, national leaders whip up war fervor with an "us versus them" mentality, demonizing entire nations and races. Such an attitude leads to atrocities like the Holocaust, and even the housing of Japanese-Americans in interment camps in the Western USA during World War 2.

    The Watchtower Society in articles such as "Beware the Voice of Strangers" attempts to stir irrational fear of reasonable fellow humans, demonizing anyone who dares question the dogma of the Society.

    They use their rank-and-file as worker-bees who can see no further than their little "hive", and yet think it's the most important thing in the world that they're doing and that nobody better get in their way.

    The Society is desperate in their attempt to promote and maintain their influence over their people.

    Nice little essay, gopher. That's a keeper! I know I'll get to use that someday.

    the bible is not much more flattering, after all SHEEP are not the brightest bulbs in the animal box...and shepherds are, when all is said and done, predators who fleece and slaughter sheep for their own benefit. --remember the twilight zone, to serve man?

    Valid points by all.

    I heard something on TV tonight (it must be right then - LOL) that triggered a memory.
    Is it true that man is the only "animal" to blush?

    Meta, good arguement against organized religion of all kinds.

    Here's some insect stuff.


    Communication is essential for all insects, but in social species it plays a particularly vital role. In the dark and crowded interior of a nest, messages are relayed almost entirely by touch and smell. The queen releases airborne chemicals called pheromones, and these stimulate the other members of the colony to behave as a single unit. Kinda like men following Britney Spears around. If a foreign insect enters the nest, its alien scent exposes it to immediate attack.

    Social insects also share information about food. As workers enter and leave the nest, they frequently make contact, enabling them to find out what their fellow workers have collected. Ants lay scent trails that lead to feeding sites. Worker honey bees returning to the hive perform special dances that show the direction of the food source and its distance from the hive. Primed with this information, other workers can find sources of food more than 10 km (about 6 mi) away.

    Among nonsocial insects, communication is important for mating and defense. Crickets, grasshoppers, and cicadas all attract mating partners by a sound-producing process called stridulation. Among crickets and grasshoppers, stridulation involves rubbing one body part against another to produce sounds. Cicadas make their sounds by clicking a taut membrane. When insects make sounds repeatedly during a certain period, they are said to be singing. Both males and females of these species have special ears, called tympana, for detecting one another?s calls or songs.

    Insects have many other methods in addition to stridulation for signaling to potential mates. Some insects use their antennae to hear sounds made by other species members. For example, male mosquitoes use their featherlike antennae to hear the sound of female wing-beats. Insects commonly rely on pheromones to announce their availability for mating. Water striders, or gerrids, attract mates by using their legs to create specific patterns of ripples on the surface of water.

    So I guess the WTBTS is the QUEEN BEE eh? What she says goes!

    I believe the correct rejoinder is that man is the only animal that blushes

    - or needs to.
