What persuaded you to believe in a Creator?

In 1990, I spent a few months in Dublin, Ireland, doing research at Trinity College. As I was traveling home with my wife, Barbara, we considered the future of our children. We also decided to visit my sister who was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. My sister gave me a copy of the book Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation? published by the Witnesses. The careful research that had gone into this work impressed me. It then dawned on me that I had accepted evolution without really questioning it. For example, I had assumed that evolution was well supported by the fossil record. But it is not. Indeed, the more I examined evolution, the more I became convinced that the theory is more bluster than fact.

Then I thought about my work with robots. Whose designs was I imitating? I could never design a robot capable of catching a ball as we can. A robot can be programmed to catch a ball, but only in precisely controlled conditions. It cannot do so in circumstances for which it has not been programmed. Our ability to learn is vastly superior to that of a machine—and mere machines have makers! This fact is just one of many that led me to conclude that we must have had a Designer.

Why did you become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses?

In part, it was because Barbara and I liked their thorough study methods. I was especially impressed with the research that goes into their publications. Solid research appeals to people like me, who want to probe into the details of things. For example, I became deeply interested in the many prophecies, or predictions, in the Bible. My study of those convinced me that the Bible really is from God. In 1992, Barbara and I were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Hi Priest,
I see you are telling the truth, the religies judged it to be true as one religie said in an earlier post.
I thought you were against religion being taught.
Oh, I see. You're not against satanism. That religion is ok.
Your hypocrisy is showing.

Tipping point for California. New census data shows Hispanics will outnumber whites sometime in 2013.

Does that mean I have to press 2 for English from now on?

That is false information! First Jehovah's Witnesses do not debate! We know the end is near but the scriptures plainly says no one knows the day or the hour....only the Father knows!

If you are bound to post misleading information at least try to make it believable!

TIME OF THE END
An expression found six times in the book of Daniel. It refers to a time period marking the conclusion of a system of things and culminating in its destruction. The prophet Daniel was given a preview of events to occur in the distant future. Thereafter he was told:“And as for you, O Daniel, make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of the end. Many will rove about, and the true knowledge will become abundant.”—Da 12:4.

The expression “time of the end” does not mean an ‘end of time’ but denotes a period of time that culminates in the end or destruction, not of all things, but of the things mentioned in the prophecy. That time itself will not end is made clear in the Scriptures. For example, the psalmist said concerning the earth:“It will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever.”(Ps 104:5)

Jehovah's Witnesses has made that so plain that some religions now have resorted to calling it not "the end of time" but "end times"

<quoted text>While the burden of proof is on the claimant, there is ample proof that the christian cult was made up in the third century CE.
The christian cult rides piggy back on the Jewish beliefs, except they have made a "new" god, one that is loving and forgiving rather than the hate filled violent god of the Jewish people. The new christian religion picks and chooses from the old jewish religion, taking that which justifies themselves and ignoring the inconvenient parts.
The fact that the christian cult can claim some parts of the religion they piggy back on and disclaim other parts is evident that the whole christian cult was fabricated.
You're living proof the Bible is correct, and true!
Not that I need any proof from you, as God showed up, and Saved me!

Your are showing your lack of education about the Universe around you... No Everything does Not Break Down... In Earth where wind, rain and assorted processes stuff seems to break down in the very short time frame humans perceive.... But in the Universe Things Self Organize... particles are attracted to other particles via gravitational influences, those more complex groupings of particles from dusts and gases... Those form small rocks and so forth until enough matter is gravitationally compacted that it starts to fuse and a star is born, and nuclear fusion converts its mass into assorted materials it burns it's fuel and collapses tossing ever more complex materials that continue to self assemble Until today...
I'm am always amazed with all the knowledge man has acquired over the millennia that there are still those that never bother to study any of it....
I study a lot of it...
I know Information does NOT come from non-intelligent material, life does not come from Non-life!
The odds of the building blocks of protines coming together to form one piece of DNA is an astronomical improbability!

Good Day , all... As the say

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

u really are gonna make up a whole separate universe just to give your god any kind of credibility at all. first off show some proof of this other universe or u are doin nothing more than making stuff up, but then again all religions are made up with no proof so i can understand how u think this argument of yours is valid but in the real world it is just a way to get out of answering the question at hand. the only way u can even try to show the existance is to make up things that cant even be tested by science. so lets go from start to end...god has gone from being right up in the clouds and as we build things that prove there is nothing there we keep on movin him farther and farther out away from earth until we are now at a point u have made him a whole separate universe. i have to laugh at this ignorance cuz god punished ppl for buidin a tower to heaven so they could see heaven but yet we have sent rovers out to other planets where no tower could ever be built to but guess what, no heaven to be found. do u see just how retarded the whole thing is by simple logic yet or are u to far indoctrinated to see reality?
"u really are gonna make up a whole separate universe"
NO... not at all!
The Bible Clearly states God is a Spirit...
You/we ALL have a Spirit, do you not know/feel it?
God is real, He pulled me out of drugs, and perversion, and
He protected me from death, and rebuilt the family I let satan destroy!
You will not find Heaven through a telescope...
Only through Jesus!
He proved Himself to me, and He will do the same for you!
Just ask!

research your religions past and how many predictions they have made about the end and notice how many times they have failed. the end comes when the real sun decides, not some wanna be "son". my mom is a jehovas witness so i do know all about the religion first hand so im not just puttin it down cuz of the stigma placed on them for goin door to door. but just like the rest, the cult of yours is wrong also.
