No buddy, it's still funny. They released a children's movie to train their young about the "dangers of demon toys" and it's about a little boy and Sparlock the Wizard Warrior. Check it out when you get a chance, it's funny. The cartoon is at the end but its worth watching it all.

I see no reason to assume Noah was a real person at all. Let alone how many boats he had, lol. He's a figure in an old story, and not an original story either. The Epic of Gilgamesh had nearly the exact same story.
The Nile is a big river, and it was the highway of the Egyptians. Lots of boats. Makes sense if you believe in an afterlife and want to continue to be rich and powerful...need a boat.
In duh desert?

A fleet of camels, one with proper sunblocking accessories, and a few good men for hauling junk would suffice better LOL.

So the JWs used EOC supplies in rebuilding kingdom halls... Interesting. I wonder how many other tax exempt churches we paid for repairs on? What a patriotic and honorable use of taxpayer funds. I certainly would be interested to learn God fearing man Gov. Christ appointed as the EOC chair.
It was not building supplies....it was food and medical supplies. What other religion did you bash for having access to those supplies...or do you think only atheists should get them? After all Jehovah's Witnesses pay their taxes. The religious organization has the same tax exemption as any other religion has! What is your point?

It was interesting to listen to the JW blatantly talk about how animated videos are a great way to brainwash kids at an early age. Well, it seemed blatant to me.
That poor little animated bastard is going to grow up terrified that he's surrounded by demons and every non-JW he knows is a "bad association".

There is no truth to what you just posted. It is nothing more than a rumor.

Calling people names is a cheap shot in defending a belief such as yours. Just admit you don't now how to respond or explain your position when bragging about how JW's help other JW's in need while ignoring non-jw's in of help.

So explain why you let someone who is not a JW in need of shelter,food,medical assistance suffer when you have the means to help them at that moment?

How could you look across the street and see someone in need of and regard them and just worm bait because they do not belong to your religious group?

Medical supplies from the FDEM?? Get real.
Any money that the JWs didn't spend on bottled water and Gatorade could be spent on a new roof. Individuals in the congregation pay taxes, not the organization. So how much of those supplies did y'all offer any of your disfellowshipped amigos? Let me guess, could it be - NONE?
What other religion? Any that are tax exempt, of course. Baptist, Buddhist, or Bohemian Tulip Worshipers - take your pick.
If you have the means to pay in to the system and finagle a way not to, why should you get any MORE freebies when the sh*t hits the fan? Print a half million fewer sheets of toilet paper and buy an insurance policy like everybody else.

How did you get the notion that I don't lump Catholics with Baptists, Shiites and JWs into the same seething mass? I hadn't heard that Catholics had asked for any FEMA or FDEM supplies, but if they did I'd not spare them the speech. When a Catholic gets uppity and starts proselytizing their sect and pushing their agenda(s) on the rest of the country, be assured I "pick on" them, too.

I suppose you never heard of the Crusades and the cruel Inquisitions when the catholics forced (not by proselytizing) their religious beliefs on others, especially the Spanish countries and the American indians! Have at it! Go for it!

Yes, namely the pyramids of Giza, in the desert, on the outskirts of Cairo, where it would take camels and carts, to haul boats, to de Nile.

Khufu ship
The reconstructed "Solar barge" of Khufu

The history and function of the ship are not precisely known. It is of the type known as a "solar barge," a ritual vessel to carry the resurrected king with the sun god Ra across the heavens.
-----
The desert...
Hmm..archelogical evidence of eight (8) different types of animals (not including aquatic creatures)...where ever would be all the "critterlife" that we know of today? Pre-evolutionary?

According to archeologists, the Sahara was much more densely populated more than twenty thousand years ago when the desert's climate was not as arid as it is today. Fossils, rock art, stone artifacts, bone harpoons, shells, and many other items have been found in areas which today are considered too hot and dry to inhabit. The artifacts were located near remains of giraffe, elephant, buffalo, antelopes, rhinoceros, and warthog, as well as those of fish, crocodiles, hippopotamuses, and other aquatic animals, indicating the presence of lakes and swamps in the Sahara.[5]

Between twenty thousand and twelve thousand years ago, severe conditions returned and the Sahara was largely depopulated, except in highland retreats where there were springs and surface pools fed by aquifers. By ten thousand years ago, gatherers and fishers had reoccupied the replenished lakes, streams, and swamps. There are some traces of possible agriculture from eight thousand years ago, and more verifiable evidence of cattle-keeping in the mountains by seven thousand years ago, perhaps in response to more arid conditions. That population would leave again three to four thousand years ago as conditions deteriorated. The Sahara became a largely impenetrable barrier to humans, with only scattered settlements around the oases but little trade. The one major exception was the Nile Valley.

And camels...where were the camels for 1200 or so years?

The earliest crossings of the Sahara, about 1000 B.C.E., were by oxen and horse, but such travel was rare until the third century C.E. when the domesticated camel was introduced.

I haven't seen any inquisitors or conquistadors typing ignorance on Topix. Let me know when you successfully resurrect one. Until then, the resident protestants will do.
BTW... catholic means universal. Capitalize Catholic when referring to the denomination.
Oh yeah, and don't forget that I'm STILL waiting for proof of Noah's flood.
