I wonder if Prince donated to that being built.

In a totally separate thought, the building at 6:45 in this video reminds me a little bit of PP.

I don't understand how intelligent(?) people get involved with these cult-like organizations.

True hey, though I'd say it's more that the intelligent people get out wink

Not sure what that cult is doing in that video, thought they would have invested their resources into a fortress for the 144k by now

Generally people who join cults are not very intelligent, most would have 2 digit IQs, have a sub high school level education, mental illness, intellectual disabilities. Asurvey of the Destiny church cult revealed an average IQ of 77, and most of us know that most people who go to church and believe in creation and homophobia have 2 digit IQs, compared to the 3 digit IQs of atheists, socialists and scientists.

I'm a born again Christian and I have a Bachelor of Science degree and 15 hours towards my masters. And BTW, I don't buy the evolution theory because it simply does not make sense. You would have to believe in astronomical odds for life to form, and evolution can't be recreated, so you still have to rely on faith in "scientists" and their conclusions to believe evolution.

I can tell you from experience, that scientists, which includes doctors, biologists, chemists, etc. often make educated guesses about any given facts to arrive at a conclusion. They are often proven wrong.

I've asked myself that question, as Prince has superior intelligence. I think in Prince's case, he wanted a kind of family but then he realized the JWs beliefs are wrong
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

Intelligence has nothing to do with getting close to God. God would never make that so. In fact, my intelligence got in the way of God because I had everything on an intellectual, moral, philosophical, self-judgment level.

A cult is when a human person is worshipped over God.

The problem with cults and even organized religions is that someone else is telling you Who God is, rather than you finding Him yourself. And there's a way to do that by looking at our own lives - and never with judgment.

God doesn't judge anyone and He loves all His children the same. That's how we should see each other. But especially ourselves.

Yeah there are requirements if I want to get close to Him. But they are different requirements than we think.

And they have nothing whatsoever to do with being "good" or "bad".

God is not Santa Claus.

If it doesn't make sense to you then you are either haven't read enough on it or are being wilfully ignorant.

Evolution is an incontrovertible FACT supported by an incredible mass of evidence. It would take only one piece of evidence to throw the theory into disarray - but of the millions of pieces of evidence we have, all support it. It baffles me that this is still a discussion.

Some people don't believe the earth is flat. That doesn't make sense. It's obviously flat. lol

Atheism---- The idea that the Universe was nothing and a bunch of nothing exploded and created everything. Makes perfect sense.

Yes.
And Agnosticism is when we just don't know.
Faith is when we believe.

And as for Science and scientists- they lie to us all the time-- they make up numbers and throw them at us and we want to look smart (even though we know it makes no GD sense) so we say, "Sure, I believe the Sun is 93 million miles away, I can feel the warmth of it on my face, but sure, it's 93 millions miles away." --- And if we evolved from monkeys then why are there still monkeys?

And back to topic--- yes, the JW's look crazy--- but I was watching Leah Remini's docu-series about Scientology last night and normal, smart people are falling for that insanity. Why? Because people want to make sense of why we're here and where we're going. It all boils down to death. Everyone is terrified to die and is trying to feel safe about it- ok with it- when, the truth is, it's scary. Even for the most devout Christian full of faith. The idea of the unknown is scary.

And people also are looking for a purpose.
Another motive is we all want to belong.

I don't have any judgment per se, of the JW faith.
I can make use of many religions.
I just found something that works for me that's different.
Looked like some pretty ice people in that video.
If what they're doing works for them and they're not hurting anybody, I would encourage them.

Prince could not have been in alignment with JW beliefs because JWs don't think you have a soul. They think you die and that's it. God will reincarnate you if you were good enough. Prince definitely believed he had a soul, he said it many times. Josh Welton, a Christian, said from his conversations with Prince , he knew that Prince was a believer in Jesus biggrin I love you Prince Rogers Nelson and I will see you in heaven heart

The point is how weird the video is. They are all smiling idiots. They are working for free too. They don't build stuff for poor people since they don't do politics.

Yes I don't know you, so my statements stand, also how can you have a degree is science and believe that a man magically made the earth in 7 days and all the rest. Are you sure it is not the university of Bubbalicious or the Captain Crunch university. My guess is you don't have a degree, but probably went to one of those second chance hope schools where they have like Bachelors in Scientology and Toilet science or the science you refer to is Domestic Science (Housecleaning).

.

Even if you have the degree, believing in creation, still makes you look ignorant. Plus I bet you got that degree before you found Jeebasus and de Lawd. Once you accept that bullshit, your degree becomes invalid. Are you using or it or preaching at the Beulah Zion gib us all de money sto' front church?

.

EVOLUTION IS THE ONLY TRUTH! Creation is a load of bullshit, what if the world ends and there is a universal catastrophe, will magical God create us again lol

.

Also, since when da fuck where Scientists proven wrong over evolution, when we have dinosaurs, a massive geological record, proof positive of events on earth before the Neolithic era (The time of so called Creation) and since when has Creation been proven the truth.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Prince was a Jehovah's Witness. He said it himself. Who are you to claim he wasn't aligned with the religion? Did you know him?
