Now you infect my forums
i wanna cry, or laugh, which ever comes first
WOW...you just called the word of God garbage.
The Jehovahs Witnesses are just doing what Jesus and the aposles are doing...Read Acts Chapter 5 and you will see that the apostles preached from door to door.
I am gonna make the call that it will not matter to you this very fact......all things are up to you peoples opininion, the whole world is subject by how you feel things need to go. I can quote scriptures all day long, the same scriptures you claim you heed and respect, but you will blow them off and you are overwhelmed by your opinions and what you think you know.

In modern times there has been a movement against God. Not just a passive one, but an active one. People are renting assembly halls, auditoriums, using the TV, billboards, the radio, among other mediums to express their sentiments against God. They are known as neo-atheists (see link for download of pdf article on the subject). They are not content with just not believing in God, but feel the need to actively preach their ideology to the masses, to get people to stop believing in him, which they believe is a sickness that needs to be cured. And they are the doctors.

Who are gonna cry to when you know your day is up? 144,000? You lack understanding of the Jehovahs Witness faith, there is far more than 144,000 that will be saved, so you go ahead and be someone who is on the outside , you do not know their faith yet you speak, so sure of yourself....LOL. It reminds me of an idiot speaking about calculus, when he does not know any facet of it at all but assumes he does.
I dont need to reveal your lack of knowledge, you do it fine all by yourself.

Science disproves almost everything in holy texts. The quaran teaches that the mountains hold the earth in position, salt water and fresh water pass through each other etc etc etc. These books contain nothing but fiction and bad assumptions
Its all nonsense from people that didnt understand the world like we do now.
Mirroring national trends, religious attendance at Cornell and in the greater Ithaca area has increased in recent years, according to local religious leaders. In 2008, 42.1 percent of Americans attended church services about once a week. That number slightly increased to 42.8 percent in 2009, and then up to 43.1 percent last year, according to Gallup polls.

Did I mention that I am not an athiest? I just don't believe in the God of Abraham. I don't believe in the ridiculous concept that the Books of the Bible, Torah, or Quran are the Divine Word of God. They were ALL written by people with an agenda- and that agenda is always weatlh, power, and control over their fellowman.
I do think there is something bigger than me. Beyond that, I just don't know. What I do know, is that a God would not want us killing each other, or even overly influencing each other.
