Re: Jehovah's Wittnesses

It'll take more than primary level childishness to goad me, I'm afraid Buzz. The point is, that conjecture and extrapolation do not constitute proof that JW's are dangerous. An adult mind should be capable of grasping that fact. Instead, you need to show some hard evidence of JW's attacking people o...

Re: Jehovah's Wittnesses

if no homicides at all were done by schizophrenics, and their likelihood of committing a homicide was the same as the general public, then you have an argument. Actually... if you could show us evidence of a significant number of incidents where schizophrenic Jehovah's Witnesses have gone out, Watc...

Re: Jehovah's Wittnesses

argumentum ad nauseum to be exact ... you could say, sophistry. Definitely the former, but surely sophistry is elevating Buzz's fatuous predilection for repetition to far too high an elevation? It shares the same root as sophistication, after all, and there's nothing sophisticated about Buzz's lame...

Re: Jehovah's Wittnesses

Buzz: Let's be generous and assume all the numbers you have provided are all correct. Based on these numbers, what is the likelihood of you being murdered by a Jehovah's Witness? It's the one thing you haven't mentioned even though it should be the crux of your argument, and it's easily worked out....

The Confidential Inquiry survey was notified of 1,594 homicides tried by courts in England and Wales between April 1996 and April 1999 .....

You can take part here: http://cbstrials.com/Open/Default.aspx?B_ID=279 And here's a short NS article about th...

Re: Jehovah's Wittnesses

You can't get your head past the reality BETWEEN 5% to 10% of all homicides are committed by Schizophrenics. Schizophrenics are much more likely to be violent. As for JWs, their religion is crap anyway and anyone who believes that crap is clearly deluded. It annoys me they they knock on my door. JW...

Re: Psychological colour test

Normally I'd be skeptical about stuff like this BUT as someone who has been through years of therapy I am totally amazed at how accurate this is . :wink: Sounds familiar... "I can't believe how accurately he analyzed me!" Well worth hanging on for what happens at 6.20mins. And then check out the Fo...
