In part 5, Wendy says she was arrested for praying. Well, as someone else who did research, this is a lie:

Are you implying that anyone who is a Jehovah's Witness cannot be taken seriously,

Yes.

1) By telling people to learn about God, than telling them to go to the library to learn, which one should they learn about?


That's like saying "By telling people to learn about evolution, then telling them to go to the library to learn, which fossil should they learn about?"


2) Biased sources that ignore evidence are not to be taken in the same light as sources that are open to new evidence.

Biased sources =/= ignoring evidence.

If scientists operated like religious people and just put forth any old explanation that popped into their heads, there would be numerous different explanations for life.

The difference is that scientists are actually smart, and all the different branches converged on a single theory. Religion just kept piling the bulls*** higher and higher, and the conclusions that religious people make just keep getting more and more divergent.

Religion is a failure, and science works. It's that simple.

I can't. It's far too massive to carry around with me that I have to just direct people to the library.

This is not even close to what Dawkins did in the debate. Stop being an ignorant fool.

Which section of the library, because the religious part of the library is part of the philosophy part of the library, and in that area there are tons of different explanations for the existence of a higher power.

Are you saying that each explanation is correct?

Also, my library doesn't seem to contain any books on JW.

That's like asking "which section of the library proves evolution, because there's the biology section, then then zoology section, then the archeology section...


Are you saying that each explanation is correct?


If they believe that a God exists, yes.

Theism comes first, religion comes after.


Also, my library doesn't seem to contain any books on JW.

So?
