Lmao, just 1 percent under normal.
1%?
It might not be PC to recognize that only 25% of people are above normal intelligence - but it explains a lot.

Tennessee has to be in that top 10 also.
Did you read the story of the guy who saw his male dog humping another male dog and didn't want him any more because he thinks the dog is gay?
He took the dog to an animal shelter (fortunately the dog got a new, better home) and now EVERYONE knows how STUPID the former owner is.

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.
Hey there "christiamorals",
It is good to see someone post from Elkhorn City, KY I am from the Virginia side...between Grundy and Richlands. It is also good to know that your Mother is one of Jehovah's Witnesses (as I am too)I am now retired and live near Orlando, FL.
But I doubt sersiously that you know 'all about the religion'first hand because I feel if you knew ALL about it you would be one too.

You have been mislead by false propaganda about Jehovah's Witnesses promoted by opposed religions. As soon as I saw you accuse Jehovah's Witnesses for making false predictions, I knew where it came from. The end of the Gentile times ended in 1914 as prophesied but not as many things expected did happen, but that does not mean that the end is not coming.

May I ask you does your Mother live in Elkhorn City?
If you prefer to respond other than on a public forum my e-mail address is: poppiejdw@cfl.rr.com
I will wait to hear from you.

trust me when i tell u, i know the kingdom hall ways thru and thru, i at one time would speak to the congregation myself with scripture and understanding but what happened was as i read the bible more i found that most of it is kind grotesque and sickening. if it were for the "divine inspiration" bein labeled to it then it would be banned for children to see it with all th stories it tells of murder and rape and sex. my mother now lives in away from here and she recently quit goin to the services too cuz when she actually talked to me about why i quit she seen some things that most dont know the bible actually says. and i also introduced her to things that real science can prove and it is amazing what all u will find out if u really research for the places that have hands on or demonstrations set up to show the proffs they have. sciece has many, creation science has zero that has any kind of real proven fact involved, just all christian dogma disguised so hopefully they can get god back in school. i do appreciate u wantin to show me things i dont know but trust me when i say i know more than enuf about the witnesses, and just the disfellowshippin alone is enuf to keep me out of there from now on, true love would never shun someone instad of tryin to help them be a better person, thats the first strike that has to be changed b4 u havea ny chance at even discusin joinin that place again.

also just do a quick search on the witness failed prophecy on here and match up some of the things u find to the actual documents released from over a hundered yrs ago of just how bad they have been at their predictions. i mean im not mean to the JW if they come by, i invite them in and talk as long as they want, but their is nothin short of some hard evidence b4 u can ever get me to believe in it again. but if u wanna do email we can, im always up for meetin ppl that can discuss the toic like adults and not resort to petty insults just becuz they feel butt hurt from my reasoning. who knows, u may convert me or i may convert u, scary thoguht when u think of it that way, see u are already part atheist cuz u dont believe in the other gods, so once u realize the reason for not believin in them is the same reason it takes to not believe in jehovah or jesus then u may see the world differently.

"christianmorals" Or christian morals definition is that they believe they will be punished if they do something that their ever watching god does not like.
So christians have morals as long as they are being watched. That is not moral it is obedient while under supervision.
Nothing "moral" about that
Where you good morally when sacrificing animals to jehovah? How about when killing children for jehovah?
Was it "good morals" when you murdered Doctors and employees at womens clinics?
The christian cult's idea of good morals is what ever they want to do and hurt whom ever they choose to hurt.
Hey, dont get mad at me, it is the ACTIONS of your cult that tell the truth. Get mad at your cult for being so hate filled and violent.

Dear "christianmorals",
I have a question for you: Are you desfellowshipped? If not then we can continue to converse. You have my e-mail address, I don't have yours. I can tell from your comments that you are offended by the desfellowshipping. Maybe we could start with that subject.
I will wait for an e-mail from you.

Thanks for your reply.

Have a good day.

The owner was never socialized correctly..he must of been reading the KJV for instructions. Tennessee is in the top 10 "if you ain't white you ain't right shirt state".

ARE YOU A GENUINE CHRISTIAN?
It is vital for each person who claims to be a Christian to answer this question positively. Why? Because God’s approval depends thereon. Christianity is not merely a belief or a label, but a way of life. Does your way of life reflect Christ’s example? Does your religious practice match the Biblical quality of the early Christians?
The apostle Paul invites us:“Put yourselves to the proof, to see whether you are holding the Faith. Test yourselves.”(2 Corinthians 13:5, The Twentieth Century New Testament) To this end, we invite you to check the following short list, while looking up the cited scriptures in your own Bible.
1. Do you participate in national or political loyalties that cause divisions among professed Christians?—1 Corinthians 1:10; John 18:36; James 1:27.
2. How do you define Christian love?—1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
3. Do you, in practice, endeavor to show true neighbor love? How?—Matthew 22:39; John 13:34, 35.
4. Are you kind, tenderly compassionate and forgiving toward others?—Ephesians 4:31; Romans 12:10.
5. In your daily life, do you avoid lying, stealing, cheating and the use of obscene and abusive language?—Ephesians 5:3-5; 4:25-31.
6. Are you inclined to think that sexual morality is of minor importance?—Mark 7:20-23.
7. Do you tend to excesses in eating and drinking?—Proverbs 23:20, 21; Ephesians 5:18.
8. Do you try to communicate true Christian faith to others by word and deed?—Romans 10:9, 10; 1 Corinthians 9:16.
At what conclusion do you arrive? Do true Christians really exist today? Do you know of any who earnestly try to live like Christ and at the same time make a real effort to communicate their Christian belief and way of life to their neighbors? Does your own religion in fact teach and practice genuine Christianity? Or is this just an attractive label or impressive signature?
If you do not already know them personally, we suggest you take a closer look at Jehovah’s Witnesses in your vicinity and see if they are conscientiously endeavoring to measure up to the Bible standards considered above. If you do not know where they are located, we will be glad to help you to get in touch with them.—Isaiah 43:10-12; Acts 11:26.

I try not to be mean when they stop by. But I have to be honest. I either just say no and shut the door with a thank you or I ask them to explain why babies suffer and die. Either way the visits are incredibly short.

Yes they do... and they have Priests & Clerics, and B'Levers that pass the collection plates... They will excommunicate blasphemers and (at the moment only metaphorically) burn the writers of blasphemous writings at the stake....
Based on all my experience on this topic what happens is BS is called out and reason tends to prevail over time.

But I'm aware that you feel the evidence is not compelling.
