It is fair to say, I have experienced lots of mental illness as my time as a JW.

There was an interesting video on the topic that Rolf made on the topic however, though he no longer supports the Org, making a counter argument, as he revealed how the stats were attained.

Re: Interesting Stuff - George Lamsa

An article I came across on George Lamsa: Here. (Please note that I don't necessarily subscribe to everything the author of the article writes.)

Here was a post from about three years ago that also discussed him (with links). For JWs, he is most likely known for his stance on the comma in Lu 23:43.

Re: Interesting Stuff - Relics From Herod's Temple

#596 Post by Bobcat » 7 months ago

An article discussing evidence that Jewish Temple relics (from Herod's temple) are located in the secret storerooms of the Vatican: Here. The article is from The Jerusalem Post.

These would have been artifacts originally taken by Roman General Titus after the 1st century Jewish-Roman War.

Rutherford's rainbow is overdue, but not to worry, there's still the Silver Sword, the GB's Gold and the Logo made of Blue. (Silver Blue and Gold).

Here's some lyrics that fit your notice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKOUm-Mt3k0

Re: Interesting Stuff - Recent UAP Sightings

#599 Post by Bobcat » 7 months ago

The video below offers a possible solution to the fairly recent revelation of UAPs (also called UFOs) that have been videoed by some US Navy aircraft.

The UAPs seem to exhibit extraordinary capabilities that some have theorized must be from a non-earth source. The video is 10 ½ minutes long, and quite fascinating.

Posting this video, no context. I'll let viewers decide what it reminds them of.
