Do JW's celebrate with gifts? I know they do not celebrate many traditional holidays, or birthdays.
I have always exchanged gifts on December 25th. Heck, I even put up decorations to honor Santa, even though I know he is not real.
I have relatives who are JWs and they give donations "not referred to as a tithing" of money to their church to support it financially. Many JW's donate their property to the Watchtower Society when they die. As far a presents go they never give presents on pagan holidays like Christmas or birthdays, I have never seen or heard JW relatives give presents to any one of the other non JW relatives, not ever. They do charity work only for their members in need, we are considered infidels,heretics and apostates by the group. Like YAA they are sectarians and think all other groups are heretics, but are docile compared to YAA type of sectarism and extremist politics.

I am NOT claiming there was a God before the BB. I am claiming that it's no more a faith based thought than life from non life..
you can run In circles with your word salad my friend but that's what evolution and anyone that believes it comes down to.
Anything o/side of time and space, a creator for example, would be able to Interact with the time and space it created. Science does nothing but explain the building blocks used Mike.
So you are not claiming A god before the big bang, and I am not claiming how life came to be, but you feel I should not believe the scientific theory of evolution because what?

For sake of debate, lets say a person does have "faith" life came from non life. Should he be put before a firing squad for that belief?

If you wish to have faith in a creator god, fine, but when you insist the known science of the day be withheld from public school due to your beliefs, that is when I object, which is what I am doing here. I am not wishing for you or your kind to be lined up before a firing squad.

Then who knock up Eve?

If Eve was a God, why would she be required to have sex to produce an offspring? Couldn't she just say poof and then offspring would appear? Why didn't Eve say poof to Satan to make him disappear?

What's the name of the true religion today?

So you "know" Santa is not real, but you can't 100% rule out there's no God, god, or gods???

You silly evolutionist contradict yourselves quite bit, don't ya??

If you actually went with the Biblical Story then his actual birthday would have been sometime in October since taxes would have been collected at the end of harvest time because much of the taxes were paid from the crops harvested at the end of the growing season... And the reason they had went to Bethlehem was because everyone was told to go there to pay taxes...

What about the Palestinians?
Why don't you ask your god to bless them?
Probably for the same reason your ancestors wouldn't have asked their god to bless the native Americans while they were getting slaughtered by Christians.
We should be asking God to give the Palestinians the courage to not let emmaus take them over with fear tactics!

"However, before humans evolved, we were egg laying reptiles and the yolk genes were active'
So you are saying that at some point in the past, your ancestors laid an egg...

2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I
lay in Sion a chief corner-stone, elect, precious: and he that
believeth on him shall not be confounded.
2:7 To you therefore who believe [he is] precious: but to them
who are disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed,
the same is made the head of the corner,
2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense,[even to
them] who stumble at the word, being disobedient: to which also
they were appointed.
2:9 But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy
nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the
praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his
marvelous light:
2:10 Who in time past [were] not a people, but [are] now the
people of God: who had not obtained mercy, but now have
obtained mercy.

So umm...whatya think about NON-scientific type theories-- like promoting "stuff" like MERCY--maybe even on an international scales.
Too bad anyone couldn't bottle something like that and sprinkle it on sadistic, bomb lobbing, terrorist types daily huh?

Why do you lie so much. I had no problem with the link. If you didn't try so hard to miss it you might have seen the advanced search option .
If you do not educate yourself with all the facts there is no reason for anyone to waste time debating you.
I know what your going to say....that web site is not factual .You never read it. You never wanted to.
Why are many atheist/non bible believers so well versed with scriptures ? You can't make good decisions if you don't allow yourself to learn about both sides of any argument .
Do you think God created the exact same animals 6000 yrs ago that are still here today ? Was the penguin and the polar bear on the arc too?

Why would you say I made it up? I told you I am a Christian and have been. You honestly believe I made up being lied only Christians? Really? You think they are infallible? please. Talk about delusional. You wrote the book on it. You must be like the Christians I've encountered. Not surprisingly, the atheists responded to me with more kindness than you, sister Christian. I bet Jesus is proud of you huh? Shit head.
Nicely put.

The chances of getting a kind response from curious are zilch.
