The "fear"

Not just Americans. Most people in the world are better off. Everyone I know in the UK is doing very well and enjoying their lives. There is no question that particularly since the end of world war 2, most have a much better life.  (Wednesday | post #380)

The world is a far better place in 2014 http://www.busines sinsider.com/the-w orld-is-becoming-a -better-place-2014 -10 No need to fear the future, we have never had it so good.  (Wednesday | post #376)

I guess if someone says the sun will rise tomorrow and it does that makes them a prophet to. You are such an idiot.  (Tuesday Oct 28 | post #356)

Garath lets try that again. Try and focus. I said war, disease and famine nearly always go together. It has been true throughout history and still happens today. It really is not rocket science to understand that one will follow the other. Therefore you cannot say that those things happening simultaneously is a sign of the last days. They happened together in the first century, where Jesus predicted it would happen, and it has happened for most wars since.  (Tuesday Oct 28 | post #352)

It really is very simple, if wars, famine and disease etc are worse now, why was there such a huge population explosion in the twentieth century?  (Tuesday Oct 28 | post #341)

Garath that has always been the case. War always brings hardship and disease and famine. They always go together. Have a look at the links array has provided for everyone to see. In most times of trouble in the past, there was a much higher percentage of the population that was affected.  (Tuesday Oct 28 | post #340)

Thanks for those links Array. If only JWs would do some checking themselves they too could find out that sort of info. But they insist on following what their leaders tell them which often is total lies.  (Tuesday Oct 28 | post #336)

I understand why you have to disagree to Nomi. I was the same as a JW. If you start saying the world is actually a better place now than pre 1914, then your whole religion goes down the pan. For me once I got out from of the religion I soon realized that although of course there are things wrong in the world, we are much, much better off than 100 years ago. Just ask yourself what time in human history did you have all the good things that you enjoy at the moment.  (Tuesday Oct 28 | post #333)

That does not suffice at all. You have already been shown that most of those things are better than pre 1914. Check yourself independently of Watchtower and you will see for yourself. There are many less people dying of food shortages now worldwide. When there is a crisis in a country other countries often line up to help and offer aid. Before nobody else new of the problems a country was having due to severe lack of communication pre 1914 not to mention lack of money to help. The environment is in a matter better state than it used to be. I had to go to school with a handkerchief over my mouth just 50 years ago because of the effects of coal pollution. Murders and serious crimes in many countries id down and in UK is at a 30 year low. Homelessness is nothing like it used to be worldwide. What global disasters are you speaking about?  (Monday Oct 27 | post #330)

Dare anyone to debunk this WTS truth!

In most translations it says ''the meek will inherit the land''. So it was originally speaking of the Israelites inheriting a peaceful land. Nothing whatsoever to do with a paradise earth or anything to do with 144000.  (Sunday Oct 26 | post #4)

OK So you agree we are generally much healthier now and presumably you agree that we are living longer and that child mortality is very much reduced from years ago. Also most people have higher disposable incomes than years ago which allows them to visit different parts of the world regularly, and to pursue hobbies and interests. Communications are amazing now and most people in the developed world have many channels on their tvs to see all sorts of things including wildlife documentaries etc. There are so many cars available to people now that it is a problem where to put them all, but none of us want to be without them. So overall I see the world is an amazing place to live and I enjoy every minute I am on it right now.  (Saturday Oct 25 | post #322)

Last Night's JW Child Abuse TV Programme here:

Still waiting for that list Garath. Is there anybody on this site who speaks against the org, that you do not regard as a liar. Just answer the question. It is really not rocket science.  (Friday Oct 24 | post #458)

We actually pity you, because you mostly end up shouting liar or twisting what you have been told. As I said give us a list of people who speak out against the org that you dont call liars.  (Friday Oct 24 | post #456)

Have you listened to the new Jehovah's Witness podcast?

Great video and so true. Whenever I speak to witnesses about the societies history most have no clue at all. Just shout lies just like Anerein does. It is from ex witnesses that you can find out the truth about the Watchtower's past  (Friday Oct 24 | post #8)

So you agree things generally are a lot better now? It is not living in a cocoon to appreciate how the world around us has improved so we no longer have massive infant mortality in most places and the fact that most of the world lives longer now than they used to. Death has always been with us and God made the animals so they would die horrible deaths, most being eaten alive.  (Friday Oct 24 | post #296)
