so my 15 year old girl at quite, the age", is riding in the car with me as we are driving back from the dentist.
we have a little 4 year old passenger and as we drive we notice someone has stolen a street camera from above the stoplight system.
three city workers in bright jackets are standing and staring at it perplexed and it is a rather amusing site.

i had witnesses knock on my door yesterday, oh man talk about deluded, those of you can read my posts from the past to see my story, but when they asked me what religion i was i said x jw not dissed or dissassociated, i breifly told them a few home truths including the short version of how i was treated in the org, this dummy obviously an elder and his wife stood there and said, i can promise you that it is most likely if you come back that wont happen to you again, the arrogance!!!!
i said to them you cannot stand there and say that, sheesh who do they think they are, they dont know what i went through or what kind of wolves lurk in the cong i was in, i told them i had read ray franz book and i said you wont know any of the truths about brooklyn because you are not allowed to look on the net or read anything non jw.. the wife said yes we can we just dont look at apostate websites, i nearly laughed at her, she said to me ray franz was only dissfellowshipped because he went against the scriptures, grrrrrrrrrrrrr they make me so mad, they read me scriptures i already know etc and tried to justify some of the things that happened to me.
oh man dont you just want to scream sometimes???

my take on religions in general is that they all either give hope or some type of contentment for the person who takes their religion seriously.
if they're good, they go to heaven or to some better condition.
some religions are more radical than others and these types, i stay away from.. regarding those that are very religious, i'm generalizing here, but i think most of them are extremists in one way or another.

so to top off my wonderful set of horrible happenings as of late...my washer was broke.
so after a couple of weeks i put off going down the street and borrowing an unused one from a friends garage.
i was told it was buried and hard to get out, so i took a bit of time tackling the job.

i'll start it off, then someone else give them a different challenge if you can think of any.. please give definitive examples that by evolution, a species has changed into something else.
give two separate findings by scientists, and it can't include any comments like "so we believe", "so we conclude that", or "the evidence shows that there could have been".....the wts has those copyrighted.. try and give un-doctored photographic proof, where possible, etc.
by the way the hominid skulls and the like will not be accepted, transition has never been proven, i don't think, just that they are different, and scientists "believe", they are pre-homo-sapiens.. i'm not saying you won't have examples, we just want you to walk the talk.

when i first started on this forum typing was not really a natural activity for me it was slow and i didn't have the patience to write long posts as i would have liked.
