    The coolest hairstyle ever

    There are other depictions of them however that show different hair. I think it's just ancient art style as opposed to accurate hair texturing, you'll see that the hair of the Assyrians are the same. For example there are depictions in other lands, like Egypt, that show them looking like themselves as well. This was done for other cultures too, for example in Rome they drew depictions of the Celtic Britons in the exact same way as they drew their own people, with hair styles and such.

  2. My mom actually wondered about meat trees, lol. I mean, sounds crazy, but if we can grow plain meat in labs now with DNA samples... if we could cross this over into some sort of seed genetics.... Documentary footage from the future of me in the New World 😄:

    My off topic thread

    Even as a joke, I could see it as a legit question!

    My off topic thread

    Perhaps because Paul's writings are letters to locations and congregations, and the other books by other apostles were like other forms of writing? (Trying to think if the other Gospel writings also had letters to people and locations in them.)
  5. I wonder if genetic science in the new world will ever take us to the point where we can grow a full loaf of bread and other pre-made and convenient food items out the ground or on trees....

    The coolest hairstyle ever

    Well, it's each to their own, so long as something is kept clean I'd say. Of course in the world we live in, grooming and style is limited due to the context of our preaching, much like facial hair as mentioned earlier. I'm not sure, but I heard that in the Bible somewhere hair locks were mentioned and may have refered to this hair style. Another example,Jehovah approved of Moses and Noah who are depicted having 10-15 inch beards in our publications, and Samson was commanded to never cut his hair to retain his strength, which reveals just what Jehovah thinks about style, hair length etc. I mean, he'd never command a servant of his to do something distasteful or sinful to continue being blessed by him. Both of these things today however would get you talked to by your Elders in the modern context. Jehovah does have standards of being clean and tidy of course, but other than that, I imagine in the new world we'll see a great variety of fashions and hair styles approved as the context of giving a good witness to the world, and certain worldly associations with styles & fashions will be long gone. I imagine in the new world you'll be able to freely have the dreads you love @Brother Jack (And I'm pretty sure I'll be able to see what a 15 inch beard looks like on me 😄 )

    My ancestry DNA results!

    Amazing tornado video.

    I was actually thinking about the comparison the other day. Like how you have sheet lightning that is wide, and fork lightning that is thin and hits the ground. Hurricanes are like wide tornados that spin on a flat plane and tornadoes being skinny vertical hurricanes that hit the ground.
  11. It might be due to the fact that you're drinking nothing but wine 😄
