NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS AND GOD
______
edited for space..Before proceeding, let’s define our terms. An atheist is someone who doesn’t believe in
God and &#8260; or finds the very concept of God meaningless or incoherent (Baggini 2003). An
agnostic is someone who is unsure or undecided about the existence of God, or who believes that there are certain matters – such as existence of a God – that are beyond the scope of human knowledge and comprehension (Eller 2005). Other terms commonly associated with atheist &#8260; agnostic include ‘‘freethinker’’‘‘humanist,’’ and ‘‘skeptic’’(Pasquale 2009). A secular person is someone who is non-religious, irreligious, or generally uninterested
in, indifferent to, or oblivious to religious beliefs, activities, and organizations (Kosmin 2007). Finally, a none refers to someone who, when asked in a survey what his or her religions is, stated ‘‘none.’’ Of course, things can be messy. For instance, someone can be secular and yet not be an atheist, such as an individual who never attends religious services or activities, doesn’t describe herself as religious, and yet still believes in something she would refer to as God (Shibley 2004). Or a person can be religious while also being an atheist; there are many
religious traditions – particularly in the East – that don’t contain a specific belief in God (Eller 2007; Martin 2007), and for many other people, belief in God is largely absent
from their idiosyncratic religious identities (McGuire 2008; Casebolt and Niekro 2005

"stuck in a lodi",
Able was the first Jehovah's Witness and there is a long list of them recorded at Hebrews 11:4-32
We know they were all Jehovah's Witnesses because they were all before Jesus so by necessity they were Jehovah's Witnesses-see Hebrews 12:1,2

You are correct Charles Taze Russell was the founder of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society but Jehovah's Witnesses goes way back long before Russell.

1.If the organization did not actually prophesy the end in 1925 and 1975, then how come so many Witnesses left the faith immediately afterwards?("They lost roughly three-quarters of the movement between 1925 and 1928, then suffered huge losses after 1975, when the end didn't come as they had implied over and over again," said Jim Penton, an ex-Witness

Well now KF.... pretty sure we've established jesus was not the founder of JW..
This is not a bias site.. this is documented evidence that is available for anyone to access.
Perhaps you need to do more research concerning the History of the 'Cult' in which you are a member of.
It's hard to believe that with all the overwhelming evidence proving the false doctrine that JW proclaim, you would be defending their actions.

It is hard for me to believe you would copy your founder by making false statements and parade them around as if they are the truth! Not surprised.
I don't have time to continue to respond to an opposed person. It is evident you are not looking for the truth only to try to find fault is your motive.
May I ask, what has Jehovah's Witnesses done to you personally to make you so bitter at us?

Can you be more specific...Who is 'my' founder [as you posted about]and what false statements am I parading around as truth? In case you missed it, I have No Founder as I have stated on numerous occasions. I do not follow any 'religion' any 'denomination' or any 'cult'

Seems really strange that god would allow his word to be changed and no one knew for a thousand years. It is as if god has zero control. It is as if he does not exist. It is as if religion was created by man.

And I have watched it. The whole thing - months and months ago. We already had discussion of "The Bible on Trial". What makes you think I'd want to revisit that lopsided slag of propaganda? I understand why as a Christian you think it's the bomb. To anyone else (who might expect even a nod toward impartial accuracy) it simply bombs.
BTW, you can't watch it from your link, but it is on youtube in all of it's choral backed, cathedral painting studded, innuendoed, twisted glory. If it was truly a "trial", the judge would have thrown the presenters out on their a's for leading the jury as soon as they finished their first sentences.
The point of me telling you to search for more evidence, was for you to find
that you're wrong about it's validity!
There is MORE 1'st century manuscripts for the NT, and the Bible as a whole, that there is no way for it all to be corrupted by
the Catholic Church!
That was the basis for the reformation!
And I am here to tell you... God is real!
He saved me, and proved Himself to me, and MANY, MANY others!
When the end comes, and it will... NONE will have an excuse!
All who call on the Name of the Lord... will be saved!

What whack job led you to think that the reformation was caused by the Apocrypha?
YaA, the only evidence you search for is to validate your beliefs and >feelings<, not to illuminate them.

Killing a homeless person means only "a bit more" than stepping on an ant?
You are sick.

And killing a cop is "much more" than killing a homeless person?
Why? Because a cop is providing a service to society and the homeless person is not?

Well, then why is abortion wrong? A fetus is providing no service either.

Sure, someday it might. But then again, so might that homeless person.

You can't have it both ways.

Since its very inception, the Watchtower has made false prophecies about the end of the world. Predicting the end in one form or another for the years 1914, 1918, 1925, 1975 and 1989
Are you going to deny this?
They didn't say 1989, that was actually the year I was baptized in. They had learned their lesson after the 75 false prophesy so they made a general prediction. That's when they came up with "this generation" crap. If you were alive in 1914 then the end would come before that generation passed away. They of course changed the definition of generation all the time, making it longer and longer. Now they dropped that and I think I heard rumors of 120 years after 1914, still screaming any day now.

The JWs are a joke, just like that poster Known Crap who just copy/paste things.

So you are claiming worship of a gold object, a vile crime? So you must be defending the murders Moses ordered? Then I say you are most immoral of a person. You do not know morality, you just obey orders like a soldier. I am sure the 9/11 hijackers were as blindly obedient as you and could not think for themselves, just as you cannot.
BTW, I disagree with the death penalty in America. I consider it a state sponsored murder. I know many who think this way, so you are far off from the facts of capital punishment. Typically republicans are for it, and Democrats are against it.
Are you for it? Do you think the death penalty should be instituted for those who worship golden calves?
Not that I expect any straight answers to any of these questions.
