Based on the content of your posts I highly doubt you research at all. You basically just keep saying the same thing over and over without addressing any arguments directly.
If you were going to do research on a topic such as human sexuality where would you begin? What kinds of sources would you go to? What would be your method for discerning quality information from bad information?

Good luck trying to push your biblical diarrhea in any modern 21st century American public school. Christians are a mere annoyance in modern society, you have no political clout or authority in the age of science.

Where did the date 1914 come from?
Charles Taze Russell
(founding father of the Watchtower)
"Thy Kingdom Come" Vol.3
Studies in the Scriptures.
Russell taught that the Great Pyramid was the
"Divine Plan of the Ages in Stone". After
personally measuring various chambers and
passageways within the Pyramid, Russell
considered relationships of involved
combinations of numbers as being particularly
significant. He felt that these numbers were
included in the Pyramid's dimensions revealing
God's plan for the world's salvation.
"Thy Kingdom Come". 1889. pg.342
In the 1889 edition of "Thy Kingdom Come", Russell
taught that the Great Pyramid proves that the world 's greatest trouble was due to begin in 1874:
"Thy Kingdom Come". 1891. pg.342
In the 1891 revision of this same
publication, Russell taught that the
Pyramid measurements conclude that
this time of trouble was due to begin
in 1915. The actual measurements
are 3384.904 inches. Russell was
incorrect in his measurements by 31
inches, then he was off by 72 inches.
"The Time is at Hand".1889.pgs.99,101.
In this publication, Russell
boldly states that it is
"established truth" that the
Kingdom of God will be fully
established at the end of 1914.
http://www.sixscreensofthewatchtower.com/1191...
The date 1914 can be asertained two different ways. 1) by using Bible chronology the Gentile times ended then. 2)Fulfilled Bible prophecy. Jehovah's Witnesses will be glad to show you both from the Bible, invite them in the next time they come to your home. If they fail to show you then you can post your complaint.

The other things you posted about some pyramid I know nothing about. I was not around that far back and doubt that you were either!
Rumors are carried by haters
Spread by fools

One, in the minds of the rational and sane anyway, has NOTHING to do with the other, categorically at least.

I was referring to the accuracy of a Holy Bible compared to the Machinist's Bible. Of course there is no contest unless you are one who is prone to believing that slapping pages from Watch Tower under windshield wipers is part of Jehovah's Grand Plan for Eternal Salvation of the Everlasting Soul.

...so in 2010 the average machinist made less than $40k and the average pay of a Southern Baptist minister was around $55k (annual package value around $66k). JW clergy compensation is quite a bit harder to discover as the front line are generally "bi-vocational." If there is a dollar figure attached to stipends, compensations and gifts, I didn't find it. I've also found it difficult to discover how much the assorted clergies are adding to the GNP.

Nope, never been to Somerset. I was just looking for some reason for the incoherence of the poster I was responding to.

INSIDE EDITION Investigates TV Ministers' Lifestyles
Airdate: 05/24/2011
They are some of the most popular TV preachers in the country, packing their mega churches each week and taking in millions every year. They urge the faithful followers to donate generously and in return the Lord will bring them prosperity.
There's no denying some people have prospered handsomely—the pastors themselves. They live like rock stars with huge mansions, private jets, and fancy cars. Their lifestyles are so lavish, six of them have been investigated by the U.S. Senate.
One preacher, Paula White, lives in multimillion dollar homes in New York City and Tampa, Florida. And another preacher, Creflo Dollar, gets around in style, flying in private jets to preach around the country. He owns a mansion in an exclusive Atlanta suburb.
Not one of them would would sit down for an interview about their opulent lifestyle so INSIDE EDITION's Lisa Guerrero caught up with Creflo Dollar at an event in New York City. She asked him, "How do you justify your million dollar mansions and private jets to your donors?" Dollar had no comment.
But when it comes to opulence, few religious leaders compare to Kenneth Copeland. He lives in an 18,000 square foot home outside Ft. Worth, Texas worth $6 million. It has beautiful water views that comes complete with a boat house. But that's not all.
Copeland is an avid pilot, and his pride and joy is a $20 million Cessna Citation jet. It's the fastest private jet money can buy. He said he needed it to better serve the Lord, and proudly did a fly by for his followers after the church bought it.
But that's not the only plane used by the church. We found a fleet of planes registered to the church. And you won't catch him waiting in line at the airport, because he's got his own. The Kenneth Copeland Airport is located right next to his mansion.
"I think Copeland is unbelievably greedy", said Ole Anthony of the Trinity Foundation, a church watchdog group that worked with the Senate Committee investigating Copeland and other TV preachers..
"Televangelism is a $2 to $3 billion industry, untaxed, unregulated," said Anthony.
That's right—by law, religious groups like Copeland's are exempt from federal taxes, and they don't have to report how they spend their money to anyone.
Copeland and his church takes in tens of millions a year, through donations and selling books and DVD's to his donors.
When Kristi Parker's mother died of cancer, she said she found diaries that showed her mother sent Copeland most of her life's savings, hoping her faith and donations would heal her deadly disease.
"She sent them a lot of money, a whole lot of money", said Parker.
Guerrero asked Parker, "What do you think of Kenneth Copeland's lifestyle?"
"TV doesn't do it justice. Their office furniture is probably worth more than most people's houses. It make you sick." said Parker.

Don't feel bad, KF. When I posted a similar article I got "spam nuts clueless" judgits, too. There's a caliber of faithful for whom St. Pete will have a "Gates broken, take elevator" sign out for.

No. I asked you. Answer it for me and I'll gladly give you my answer.

I'm trying to determine how you arrive at knowledge you feel is the most accurate.

If presented with a truth claim about the world by what methods would you determine whether or not to accept the claim?
