  1. When you use the new, nice little feature in JW Library, and look up Ps 78:24, 25, you will find that it opens up a reference to a Watchtower, namely, July 15, 2006. It says this: It is also noteworthy that Jesus Christ, because he came to give us life, was called ‘the true bread from heaven” (John 6:32-35) even though his body was entirely human and made here on earth. Regarding your statement that “there are no components or any elements from the bread that are known in the world today”, that is true. No scientist has had the pleasure of sampling and studying manna since it ceased many centuries ago.
  2. Yes, well, we cannot solve the puzzle entirely. But everyone of us can do something little instead of completely resigning to the idea that nothing we do matters. Doing your best really is good enough. But do something. That’s not impossible.
  3. And here is the photo evidence from New Scientist... https://www.newscientist.com/article/2197328-stunning-picture-shows-dead-star-racing-away-from-a-massive-explosion/ He knew it before we ever did...
  4. Nice one! Three years ago, astronomers reported that Sagittarius B2, a dust cloud at the center of the Milky Way, includes the molecule ethyl formate, which is one of the compounds behind the flavor of raspberries and the scent of rum.

  5. Most of us can do at least something little to show that we care and that the way the earth is abused moves our conscience. We might not need to eat red meat every day, and perhaps not as much when we do. We could, perhaps, try to look for fish that has been sustainably caught when cooking fish. And perhaps try to eat whatever vegetables are in season locally. Don’t feel bad if you can’t do everything. You might just want to try to do something.
  6. I love to learn new things. It keeps me alert and makes life more fun. What have you learned recently that you didn’t know before? Share with us! From trivial to deep things. Share a source too, if possible. I’ll start... ... Ancient Egyptians used to sever body parts of their statues to destroy their powers. https://jwtalk.net/topic/39842-why-do-so-many-egyptian-statues-have-broken-noses/
  7. Why do so many Egyptian statues have broken noses? The ancient Egyptians, it's important to note, ascribed important powers to images of the human form. They believed that the essence of a deity could inhabit an image of that deity, or, in the case of mere mortals, part of that deceased human being's soul could inhabit a statue inscribed for that particular person. These campaigns of vandalism were therefore intended to "deactivate an image's strength," as Bleiberg put it. "The damaged part of the body is no longer able to do its job," Bleiberg explained. Without a nose, the statue-spirit ceases to breathe, so that the vandal is effectively "killing" it. To hammer the ears off a statue of a god would make it unable to hear a prayer. Why do so many Egyptian statues have broken noses? (CNN)
  8. Raising 1000 kilos of insects does not require as much as raising 1000 kilos of chicken or beef. To create 1 kg beef requires about 80 to 170 kg of greenhouse gas, while mealworm ends up at about 20 kg. There’s a nice little presentation at Deutche Welle’s website. https://www.dw.com/en/insect-pet-food-to-offset-carbon-pawprint/a-45770960
  9. If you have downloaded the song videos, or any other videos referred to in the magazines, they are counted there.
  10. Of course animals would still go in reproducing, but in a natural way. There would be no need for industrial breeding. Yes, 40 percent of wild insects are in decline. But if we are going to use them for food, we’d not be talking about wild varieties.
  11. Another option is to download each Bible book. You can this by going to the overview.
  12. There’s a new icon when you click on a Bible verse in the NWT. It will open up the Research Guide Scripture Index references right away.
