Surely you do not believe that everything that the news media publishes is the TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH! If you do then you are more naïve than I would give you credit for!
You seem to know a lot about Jehovah’s Witnesses yet you are not one. May I ask why?
I have come to the conclusion that you are evidently an apostate! I come to that conclusion because everything you post is negative and you don’t seem to care If it is factual or not! Please let me know so I can choose to converse or not with you!
I don't believe in any god sorry. Most of my research about different religons is done online. Not hard to do and is a easy read. I don't copy and paste every thing but sometimes instead use articles that have shown Jehovah Witnesses break that laws like other christians do not make it not a reason to hid it especially on this forum. It that brought you down a notch I'm sorry, but we are seeking evidence and understanding here.

So, no I'm not a former Jehovah Witness, my debates are a composite of debates. I'm agnostic as i stated long ago on my post. I salute the flag and say the pledge, even under god (a god most likely does not exists).

I get blood transfusions if needed. I engage in christimas holidays and new year celebrations, it's fun and don't plan to stop anythime soon.

I have ask jehovah witness that come to my door would they debate online as you do and they responded that the watchtower recommends they should not do so. Maybe your the one that is a apostate. So then you would be doing yourself a favor don't reply to any of my posts , you are doing it to defend your faith I can understand, don't think that can be done without being challenge.

I see myself as more civil in debates than some and try not to destroy a person simply for fun or just produce facts that just tickle your ears.

Now, If you have evidence that shows why the Watchtower and its elders are not in violation and deserve not to be punished, please speak up.

A christian only reads the bible, it takes an atheist to explain it to them.(credits LOL)

Don't dictate beliefs forum.

You have some nerve comin’ around this here atheist forum with your FAKE-ass “Jeehovy” blathering. You are a crazy blabbermouth who is leading these atheists to HELL bein’ as you are NOT a TRUE Christian and your heretic’s bible is risible. In Spanish, you call yourselves “Testigos de Jehovah” but down here in Texas I tell even the stupidest Mexican who can vote to just refer to y’all as “God’s Testicles” or “Los Testiculos de Jehova”.

Jehovahs are cowards. Y’all are scared of yer own shadows. Boarding up yer houses when any holiday comes around. Not celebratin’ yer own birthday, let alone the birthday of Jesus. You know? Maybe you're right. Maybe God’s gonna let us all know about that.“I’m sorry, you all led pretty good lives and everything, you believe in Jesus, you followed the commandments, what can I say?” And we’ll all be standin’ there waitin’ to get into heaven. We start walkin’ foreward. God starts talkin’ again,“But you know what?” And we’re all like,“What?” And He says,“You all really ticked me off with all them birthday parties.” And we’re all standin’ there waitin’ for His ‘perfect justice’ to be done. And God says to us,“You all can sing happy birthday all you want!” And we’re all excited and our faces all light up, and then God puts his nose up in the air and says,“...in HELL!” Oh, that's a peach ain’t it? And all the Jeehovy-Witnesses is skippin’ their way along through the pearly gates.

Anyhow, please stop molesting these atheists with your chronic mental masturbation as this is MY mission field and I don’t have time to learn you some KING JAMES BIBLE! Scoot yer heretical ass over to the Scientologist forum and talk tripe to a bunch of folks who believe they came to Earth in a spaceship piloted by talking, lava eating, sea clams. Scientologists and Jeehovies just don’t know whether to wind the butt or scratch the watch.

Then can youn explain why it is still called the "Evolution Theory"?
So you do not believe man's ethnic heritage is not mixing "evolving" into new breeds of human, such as blacks mixing with chinese, their children are an evolutionary change. You do not think our immune system has evolved and is stronger and more resistant. Do you not think we have evolved from hunters gathers into industrialist. Do you not think man's life span has not increased on average by more than a few years. Man has evloved in many ways. It's not overnight we all grow a third arm, but we are most positively evolving daily. No logical person can deny this.

I thought you were refering to how Jesus looked, physical appearence as I think was mr roachclip's intent, not speculative and vague verses, which may be the best available, but saying the tree was green for example, does not say much,,green like a pine, maple, palm,, so I'd once again have to agree with mr roachclip, there is nothing saying Jesus was for example 5'8", thin with short brown hair and blue eyes,,,
If you hand six people six different drawings from six different bibles of robed, sandaled, long haired men with palms faceing out the may all say that's Jesus, put lay them side by side and each are very different,, so the image sells, not the reality. Thank you however for the reply.
RC said that there was not one word in the Bible of HOW Jesus Looked! That was Wrong!
And after the Mount of Transfiguration,
He looked different from the start of His ministry!
Lets just say that He was no perty boy, as some
think He was!

No I don't.. I have found in this thread that the idea of being a Christian is a variable ... A guy can be a dope shooting, child abusing, thieving, murderer and the Instant they are Saved they then are wonderful Christians as long as they believe in Christ as their savior... But if a ex child abusing dope shooting saved christian finds out about someone else that is a thieving child abusing dope shooter then they were never really christian in the first place and should be hung....

I fully Understand that Christianity is a philosophy and not a religion, but so is Islam and several other philosophy's.. Shite & Sunni along with several others are Religions within the Islamic philosophy... That being said all the killing and crap on all sides is what happens when the Lies of Each cause some to kill... Christians, Islamist or just homicidal maniacs all have similar traits...

I think you have adaptation and evolution mixed up. As a simple example: I can work with hand tools until I have calluses on my hands but when my children are born they are not born calloused.

Sure blacks can mix with Chinese (but as someone else said they are human.)

You absolutely cannot breed Dogs with cats and come off with some unknown animal. You cannot mix Copperhead snakes with black snakes because they are different kinds.
The mixes of dogs until you get an entirely new breed but they are still dog, not some unknown animal! As you say,“no logical person can deny this”!
The Bible says that things were created to reproduce after their own kind and that still proves true.
I was looking at a beautiful butterfly yesterday and thinking how did that butterfly know to evolve into such a beautiful creature? It did not evolve it was created beautiful and in a lot of varieties but still butterflies!

Much like a Chihuahua is a dog and a Giant Mastiff is a dog, or a tiny kitten is a cat and a Bengal Tiger is a cat... At the time of cat and dogs Common Ancestor walked the earth it looked more like a rat than either dog or cat....

Well I'm not getting into an argument on topix over evolution but I do know people are evolving daily. Taller, smarter, more resistant to strains of germs,, small steps of evolution. The flood is over, get over it, people here since the flood have a longer life span than in even jesus day, that is evolution. To imply cats breed with dogs,,oranges from apples,, what are you guys drinking out there. Man from zebras is unrealistic,, but small changes over centuries is what for most part what we see in evolution. We evolved from cave dwellers to builders, evidence we are getting smarter 'evolving' duh.

So do you live in a tent and is your people nomadic? How did you get internet service?

Is you god so stupid that he created it all and then couldn't possible evolve it?

Seems like a flash in the pan god.

Funny. Seems yet again the typical Christian judges everyone else based on their perceived actions - yet judges himself based on his "intentions".

Simultaneously, He ignores the humorous fact that if you don't sin, Jesus died for nothing.

I am probably more educated than you in my little tent. I know that scientist believe that humans and apes come from a common ancestor. Well if your asking what Christians believe then that's is God created man and gave us the intelligence to improve our lives. Scientist "believe" there theory to be true and so do Christians. So really it is up to the individual on which they want to believe.
