    Were out this weekend.

    Saw them from my home-office window making their way down
    the road. 3 generations of a family, in 2 groups,
    Grand-dad, Dad & 2 sons together, Grandma, Mum & Daughter
    in #2 platoon.

    Having some time to spare I decided to have a play.
    - I won the female platoon, brandishing Watchtower.

    The conversation drifted towards creationism, and I must
    have said a trigger-word, because no sooner was 'Dawkins'
    out of my mouth and Mum was instructed by Grandma to 'get
    one of those booklets out please'

    So I was presented with a 32 page pamphlet entitled "Was
    Life Created"

    It reads a bit like a school primer on evolution. The
    arguments for creationism are a bit predictable-repetitive
    "Is it not too much of a coincidence" type lines. The main
    thrust of the argument being that, they admit that
    individual 'species' may adapt/evolve over time, but that
    no Different Species (or 'kinds' as they and the bible put
    it) can evolve from another 'kind'

    What was mildly surprising was the summary "Science and the
    Genesis Account" which actually criticised the
    Fundamentalist Christians for taking the bible too
    literally! they admit that the 6 'days' in Genesis are
    figurative, and could represent millions or billions of

  4. I see the JWs have an even more flexible interpretation of God's word
    than they used to have. All to ensnare even more people. We get them
    all the time but I don't answer the door anymore. Nasty, nasty people
    if they think you're "weak" enough to succumb to their pressure

  5. One of my cousins got involved with them, then tried to get away and
    time after time got 'sucked back in' apparently they take someone
    straying from the flock very seriously indeed.

    Eventually they dragged her mother in, but eventually the mother
    escaped. A bit extreme though, she had to die to manage this.

    I think my cousin is still entangled with them.

    I heard a knock at the door, so ushered the dogs into the living room while
    I opened the door. "Be fucking quiet" I said to them as I closed the door
    before opening the front door.

    Stood there were two bible bashing grannies and one said "Oh, were you on
    the phone"?" I said "No, I still AM on the phone" and they handed me a
    leaflet and walked away. I didn't even have to **** 'em off in the usual
    UKRM stylee.

    The leaflet looked like a pizza delivery advert so it went the same way.
    Into the bin.

    These bible thumping cunts aren't nearly as aggressive as they used to be.

    IIRC, they're classed as a sect in France and as such aren't allowed to
    knock on doors. TTFT, as they're tedious buggers.

    Pulling this thread sort-of on-topic, my oldest - as in longest-lasting
    - mate was in front of his folks' house, tinkering with his Bonnie, one
    hot summer afternoon when we were 17 or 18. He saw a couple of
    identi-suits and identi-haircuts walking towards him. They turned out
    to be young Mormons and they started evangelising.

    Friend indicated pretty sharpish that he really wasn't in the market for
    conversion TYVM, but was enjoying putting a new chain on. They just
    smiled, switched rapidly and with immense relief into off-duty mode and
    started talking bikes, as they had left their own Triumphs back in Utah
    for the duration of their exile. Friend learned a lot that afternoon;
    none of it about Jesus.

    They never seem to knock on my door, which is a shame really I am sure
    we could have an interesting albeit short discussion. They did call at
    L's place whilst she was out and I answered the door but not being my
    house I was fairly polite.

    I've said before in this NG that working in Provo, Utah I found the locals
    to be most friendly and hospitable. They all have to go and do 2 years
    prozletizing but back at home, just normal Joes. Except they are TT.
    OK they are quite insane.

    Thank **** the ragheads don't purvey their evil cult door to door.

  14. Excellent news. So, we've had 6 billion years of Earth formation and
    evolving, so now the Sunday can last for another billion years.

    You are joking, the other sunday Osama bin laden knocked on our door.

    He was a dead ringer & before he started spouting, i said 'I thought you
    were dead' him & his mate starting laughing :)

  18. I had two turn up on my door step in Germany.
    They were freezing cold in the wrong gear, soaking wet as it was pissing
    with rain and trying hard to speak to me in German having done a two
    week course in German conversation.

    I felt sorry for them, answered them in English and said they could come
    in to dry off and warm up. I would make them a decent cup of coffee but
    all this was on the condition they did not in any way talk about
    religion/ Mormons unless I specifically asked the question.

    They looked at each other and quickly agreed.
    They were as quiet as a mouse.

  19. Nice to see the French have correctly categorised them. I have seen
    their "seige" tactics in play more than once - including with my mum -
    and it is entirely in line with the strategies used by other cults.

    Wicked Uncle Nigel wibbled forthrightly:
    I don't suppose that they were in a position to argue.
