recently, dr. wolf-ekkehard loennig, a jw working in a leading position at the gene-science-department at the max-planck-institute, has been banned from the institute's website for spreading his view about evolution.
he promotes the so called "intelligents design".
max-planck-institute calles this creationism in disguise.

were you able to name all 66 books of the bible by heart and in order?
some were able to do that, but what did that prove?.
there were always 6 or 7 books that i was never able to find, so i had to go into the index at the beginning and check the page.

ok so i've never been a jw, so i don't have insider experience with this, so let me know what you think.... an aquaintance of mine is an ms in his local congregation, and he recently told me about a "review" that he did of a newly published wt brochure (i don't recall exactly which brochure it was as there are so many stinking borchures...and who cares anyway).
i asked him what the purpose was of "reviewing" the thing, and he told me that the wt always asks for input on their new material.
so he read the brochure, i.e.

it has come to my attention, in the last few years, that whenever i'm at a gathering two groups stand out.
22 year old ladies and 28 year old guys.
if a young lady starts to discuss her current life and she has a tone of certainty, conviction, and passion i will ask her if she is 22ish.

when i was a kid we used to catch daddy long legs and throw them into spiders webs on the trees outside...then when the spider had finished of the dllegs we would throw the spider into a bigger spiders web and watch them battle it out....sick huh, i kinda like these things now so couldnt hurt em but any insect that used to come into contact with us had a cruel existence.
anyhow i just heard that the most poisonous insect of all insects is daddy long legs.
just an interesting something that i thought i would share before i go a swatting .

the situation with sars in asia appears to be worsening and travel restrictions alone are likely to have a devastating effect on the immediate asian economy (singapore, taiwan, hong kong etc...) as a lot of these rely on trade and travel.. i wonder if the world could now cope with going back 20+ years to a time when fewer people travelled and international travel was a rarity for the majority of people.. nowadays we take for granted that we can jump on a plane and jet off to faraway lands ... but what if we couldn't?
i think one "benefit" (bad word) to sars is that it could put a brake on globalisation which i see as a bad thing.

what is it that really irritates you ,i mean the most annoying ,thing that when you see it or hear it you just clench your teeth,we all have them so let's hear yours.mine is religious boasting.there is this home builder that advertises on tv and says his crap then says we are a christien company.oh yes , because he said that i would trust him more then anyone else,he must have higher standards.
(ya right).or those people who advertise with bumper stickers of their religion,and yes the freaking door bell ringers trying to push their crap on me.isn't it what you feel inside?why advertise to everyone?does it make you feel more important or more religious?because of the attempt to show me that you have faith does not make me feel i could trust you.
this is just one of my irritants and hope not do offend,everyone has the right.

looking back it seems hysterical that during the watchtower and bookstudy one had to be careful not to answer the b part until after the conductor asked the question.
just another example of how structured everything is in that cult.
"let everything take place by arrangement" to the nth degree.
