  3. Credit should go to Jerry/Old. I merely shared what he cited.
  4. *** w55 1/1 p. 17 par. 2 ‘Consider One Another, Trusting in Jehovah’ *** 2 A great change must take place in one’s thinking when he becomes a Christian. There must be a making over of the mind. To quit the old way of thinking is necessary. A new form of instruction must be put on. That is why Paul wrote: “Quit being fashioned after this system of things, but be transformed by making your mind over, that you may prove to yourselves the good and acceptable and complete will of God.” (Rom. 12:2, NW) Every one of us has been born in the wicked, delinquent, fearful old world and we have been trained in the old world’s way to think selfishly, as human leaders want their followers or subjects to think. From childhood we have been taught to hate other nations, peoples and races and to fear them and suspect them, thus building up barriers between certain persons and ourselves. This wrong thought was very sharply expressed in one of the popular stage successes (“South Pacific”). In that play, a young army man, distressed because he had fallen in love with a young girl of another race and nationality, sings about ‘your being taught to hate and fear; that you have got to be taught from year to year, having it drummed into your dear little ear—carefully taught to be afraid of people whose eyes are ugly made and whose skin is a different shade; carefully taught before it’s too late, before you’re six or seven or eight, to hate all the people your relatives hate.’ And that is true of the old world. Talk aplenty there is about brotherly love and the brotherhood of man and world brotherhood; but those who have been carefully taught according to this old world’s untheocratic theories prefer segregation, class distinction, the caste system. How necessary it is, then, for a reasonable person to make his mind over, to quit thinking like the old world and, instead, take instruction from Almighty God! God’s Book, the Bible, teaches us to love as he loves. Love casts out fear. “He that does not love has not come to know God, because God is love.” “There is no fear in love, but perfect love throws fear outside, because fear exercises a restraint. Indeed, he that is under fear has not been made perfect in love. As for us, we love, because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:8, 18, 19, NW) When one lives by the accurate knowledge he receives from Jehovah’s Word, how different his life becomes! But with these new ideas, these newly found truths from God’s Word, Jehovah’s witnesses must go forward to teach others so that all who eventually choose to become part of the New World society will think as Jehovah thinks and grow to maturity.
  5. Unless the police officer were white racist, they probably don't care. Life is cheap for these groups and the only people who are worthy of life, in their opinion, are the people who share their point of view. Even at that they view lives sacrificed to promote their view as honorable and equal to sacrificing ones life for any just cause.

      Drink some water then you can blow bubbles and keep the kids amused.

  7. Just be sure to share a link to the news item so we can all be up to speed on what is being discussed. Charlottesville white nationalist rally: What we know
  8. China has a billion people. 3/4 of their population is not military. China's history of 1 child policy and cultural history of favoring boys has left a shortage of women in China.
  9. I am growing more intrigued by the idea dinosaurs may have been part of the bird family. Obviously they lacked wings since there is 0 fossil evidence of such. But, the idea dinosaurs had feathers is growing on me. After all, as you said, evolutionists want us to believe dinosaurs evolved into birds and feathers came from scales. Of course, birds also gave hollow bones. Did dinosaurs have hollow bones?
  10. Why? Based upon what evidence? We had a nice, long discussion (maybe more than one) about the flood waters, where they came from and where they went. Never once was an expanding Earth mentioned. Why couldn't one of those suggestions be plausible? Modern science dealing with plate tectonics accounts for this without mentioning the idea of an expanding Earth. Again, it goes back to where did all the stuff come from that expanded the Earth? Are you suggesting the Earth is retaining water?
  11. What is causing the expansion? The theory suggests the "plasma core" is absorbing plasma energy. The more energy it absorbs, the more it expands. By this reasoning, the planet should be under constant expansion as it has continually been exposed to solar radiation since creation. There should be a constant and continuous expansion. A molten iron/nickel core is composed of liquefied iron and nickel. It is molten due to the intense pressure exerted upon it from the rest of the planet. Regardless, it's still iron and nickel. This, along with other elements and minerals and chemical compounds comprise the building blocks that make up the Earth. So, we're back to the question that if the Earth is expanding, where is the stuff coming from? If the Earth is expanding due to solar radiation, and since we've been measuring the Earth for over 2,000 years now, there should be some data to support the expansion idea. The same would also hold true for the other inner planets of the solar system. Mercury, Venus and Mars should likewise be expanding as they are similarly composed.
  12. Core of the Earth is molten iron. This generates the magnetic field that protects the earth from harmful solar radiation. It also is why compass work. If the core was plasma, a form of energy, there would not be such a magnetic field.
