  1. I think the brother is a citizen of Denmark not Dutch.
  2. Neutron stars spin incredibly quickly and are also incredibly dense. It is estimated, if you could collect a tablespoon of matter from the centre of a neutron star, it would weigh about one billion tons. Our brains are remarkably complex objects with a hundred billion neurons, a quadrillion connections, and we still know very little about how this organic super computer operates. Gliese 436 b is a Neptune-sized exoplanet located about 33 light-years away in the constellation Leo. Astronomers believe that it embodies exotic states of water that causes its surface to be covered in burning ice. The pressure on the planet forces the ice to stay solid, but the extreme surface temperature of 570° F (300° C) superheats the water, causing it to come off as steam.
  3. The only interesting part in jakarta is the old city part where you can see many buildings with dutch heritage. The last time i visited the place however was more than 2 decades to go as the traffic there is very congested.
  4. Thanks. I thought some small Chinese cities. Good to see such a contrast between skycrapers and traditional buildings in such a metropolitan
  5. Where were the pictures taken brother Ben?
  6. It seems that the US is singlehandedly taking a lead in the efforts of the fulfillment of 1 Thess 5:3. I'm curious of any role that the UN might have as well. Has the slave written anything on this?
  7. More mind-blowing facts: Almost all of ordinary matter (99.9999999% of it) is empty space. If you took out all of the space in our atoms, the entire human race (all 7 billion of us) would fit into the volume of a sugar cube. There might be as many as three sextillion stars in the universe. That’s 3 followed by 23 zeros, or 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. That’s more than all of the grains of sand on Earth. Last year, scientists found the most luminous galaxy with light of more than 300 trillions (million million) suns.
  8. I wrote down a few facts on my journal that I took from the internet. Unsure if this has been posted before. I'll start with DNA. Please feel free to correct any inaccuracies. 1. Human adult is made up of around 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (7 octillion: 7x10 to the 27th) atoms. 2. 1 teaspoon of DNA carries instructions for building 350 times the number of humans alive today 3. In average life span of a human, DNA is copied 10,000,000,000,000, 000 times (1x10 to the 15th).
  9. Totally agreed. Based on my experience in Indonesia when we were banned in mid 1970s till early 2000s, the instigators were Christendom churches. These churches are now concerned given the rise of hard line Islamic groups in Indonesia as they find it increasingly more difficult to build churches. However, their difficulties are nothing compared what the Witnesses endured during the ban period.
  10. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-1.787969 According to Abbas, he had a good feeling both before the meeting and afterward, saying the U.S. president showed interest and revealed that he wanted to move quickly, “and even said within a year or a bit more.” Within a year might be overly optimistic, in my view. But given Trump's idiosyncrasies, we could expect the unexpected
  11. Thanks Neil for the superb article. Beyond my comprehension. Despite numerous indisputable facts that Jehovah is Designer of the Universe, many scientists choose not to give praise to the Grand Designer.
  12. While I would love to see this "peace" agreement to materialize soon, Trump is renowned for his frequent oversimplification of the complex matters
  13. As always, superb material this month, wish the broadcast can be extended for another hour

  15. the ban was even covered by bloomberg, a business-oriented news outlet. despite some misperception, overall a positive news commentary https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-04-21/jehovah-s-witnesses-had-foes-before-putin
