ive posted on this before, but i figured i should lay my thoughts out again on the subject.
there are some in the ex-jw community who are saddened because the watchtower organization has turned me and others like me off to god.

Why dont more Christians invoke a JW-style Satan argument when debating why God allows suffering?by Half a Person in
i have just been watched the first part of a sort-of theist vs atheist debate on youtube featuring christopher hitchens.. what struck me is that in all of these types of debates that ive seen, the christians, when faced with the question why does god allow suffering, never really provide any sort of satisfying answer.

yesterday's (18 october, 2009) wt lesson had a picture of milton & newton with a caption that said both men "knew" about the hope of living forever on earth.
(interesting it didn't say they "believed" it.
that's just a side point to this thread.).

i was given a copy of the new wonders of creation dvd.
as i watched it, i made some notes, which i have included below.
i'm not sure they make any sense without actually seeing the dvd, but hopefully they give an idea of the general contents and the sort of arguments that are used.. .
