    If I was approached by them I think I'd give them a reading list, and tell them not to come to me again as "authorities on the workings of the universe" until they'd at least studied the basics (usually they haven't).

    My wife just asked me a few days ago why we couldn't donate our own blood a few weeks before a major surgery so it's there if we need it... you can? That's what you're talking about or what?

    I don't think you should call them morons just because their beliefs are different from yours. I'll admit some of their beliefs are really out there, but they are not morons. In my opinion a lot of the Christian beliefs are really out there. Jehovah's witness beliefs and normal christen beliefs are pretty similar.

    Well Ozzy I think some Christan's are morons too. Blind faith is stupid in my opinion. Some beliefs are idiotic to say the least.

    From the Webster dictionary.
    1 usually offensive : a mildly mentally retarded person
    2 : a very stupid person
    I was using it like the second definition meaning. I believe to follow something on blind faith is stupid in these days and times. I can understand it back thousands of years ago when no one knew any better, but in these times it is a different story. There are many things that pertained to then and do not apply now, but people do not know how to let things go. The blood issue just cracks me up. Also from what I was told by the Doctors and people that work with the JW. They seem to think the blood is bad if it leaves the closed system of the body. Not because of disease. That is my understanding, and the only reason they allow the use of the heart lung machine is because it is an extension of the bodies closed loop circulation.

    Again I will say. What do I know I am just a confrontational Tard today.

    Andrew yes you can go and donate blood for yourself before surgery. When you do that they let you donate a little more frequently than you would if donating for a good cause like I do. Of course this only works if the surgery is planned and not an emergency.

    No arguments there.

    Smart people believe some stupid things sometimes. That doesn't make the stupid or morons.
    Like I said I walked away from my last job with some really good friends, some of those are witnesses. Some of them were really bright people. I don't believe that you should judge a person on their religious beliefs. When you are trained to believe something from the time you were born it will probably makes sense to you no matter how crazy it sounds to other people.
    Think about it, religion has actually convinced people that there's an INVISIBLE MAN...LIVING IN THE SKY...who watches every thing you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten special things that he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry for ever and ever 'til the end of time...but he loves you. Thanks George.

    Any religion or belief can be made to look moronic.

    We need to look the definition of belief up in the dictionary.

    Belief \Be*lief"\, n. [OE. bileafe, bileve; cf. AS. gele['a]fa. See Believe.]

    1. Assent to a proposition or affirmation, or the acceptance of a fact, opinion, or assertion as real or true, without immediate personal knowledge; reliance upon word or testimony; partial or full assurance without positive knowledge or absolute certainty; persuasion; conviction; confidence; as, belief of a witness; the belief of our senses.
    I think we need to come to an understanding in this country.
    We need to understand that our beliefs are only what we believe to be true with out any evidence or facts to back it up. All religions are based on beliefs. Beliefs are nothing but opinions. And I respect Jehovah's beliefs as mush as I do yours.

    We need to stop judging people by beliefs they have and judge them by value of the person that they are.

    I already said this, but I'll say it again. Jehovah's witnesses from my experience seem to be very honest and non hypocritical people. They really live and stick to what they believe. Unlike a lot of the Sunday morning Christians. The sin all week, but are perfect Christians on Sunday morning.

    I don't agree with a lot of your beliefs, but I don't dislike or think any less of you because of them.

    Is it true that you're not allowed to disobey your parents no matter what? I saw it on vh1 about Michael Jackson or something like that that if your parents say not to tell that they like molested or beat you or something, you CAN"T tell or else you'll go to h ell according to their religion.

    I'm sure that's not true.. just what I saw on tv. Just asking.

    I say if someone is too proud to accept blood, let them die.
    I say if someone is too proud to accept blood donations, let them always be in want and let the death that the shortages bring rest on their hands.

    That's an entirely different issue, however.
