(Matthew 24:14:) And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

WHAT DO THE FACTS SHOW? The Kingdom message is reaching all corners of the globe. In 2010 alone, Jehovah"s Witnesses spent over 1.6 billion hours proclaiming this good news in 236 lands. That is an average of 30 minutes in the preaching work each day by every Witness. Over the past decade, they have produced and distributed more than 20 billion items of Bible-education literature.

MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS OF THE LAST DAYS

"Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom." (Matthew 24:7)

Millions of people have been killed in wars during the past century. One British historian wrote: "The 20th century was the most murderous in recorded history. . . . It was a century of almost unbroken war, with few and brief periods without organised armed conflict somewhere." A report from the Worldwatch Institute states: "Three times as many people fell victim to war in [the 20th] century as in all the wars from the first century AD to 1899." More than 100 million people have died as a result of wars since 1914. Even if we know the sorrow of losing one loved one in warfare, we can only imagine such misery and pain multiplied millions of times over.

"There will be food shortages." (Matthew 24:7)

Researchers say that food production has increased greatly during the past 30 years. Nevertheless, food shortages continue because many people do not have enough money to buy food or land on which to raise crops. In developing countries, well over a billion people have to live on an income of a dollar or less a day. The majority of these suffer from chronic hunger. The World Health Organization estimates that malnutrition plays a major role in the deaths of more than five million children each year.

"There will be great earthquakes." (Luke 21:11)

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, an average of 19 major earthquakes are expected per year. These are powerful enough to damage buildings and crack the ground. And on an average, earthquakes strong enough to cause total destruction of buildings have occurred yearly. Available records show that earthquakes have claimed over two million lives since 1900. One source states: "Improvements in technology have only slightly reduced the death toll."

"There will be . . . pestilences." (Luke 21:11)

Despite medical advances, old and new diseases plague mankind. One report says that 20 well-known diseases"including tuberculosis, malaria, and cholera"have become more common in recent decades, and some types of disease are increasingly difficult to cure by means of drugs. In fact, at least 30 new diseases have appeared. Some of them have no known cure and are fatal.

Aside from identifying certain world developments, the Bible foretold that the last days would be marked by a change in human society. The apostle Paul described what people in general would be like.

We are told: "In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here." (Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5.) Paul said that people would be:

lovers of themselves
lovers of money
disobedient to parents
disloyal
having no natural affection
without self-control
fierce
lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God
having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power

Have people become like that in your community? No doubt they have. There are people everywhere who have bad traits. This shows that God will soon act, for the Bible says: "When the wicked sprout like weeds and all the wrongdoers flourish, it is that they may be annihilated forever.""Psalm 92:7.

MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS OF THE LAST DAYS

Just out of curiosity...

"Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom." (Matthew 24:7)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be food shortages." (Matthew 24:7)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be great earthquakes." (Luke 21:11)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be . . . pestilences." (Luke 21:11)

When in history has this not been true?

Aside from identifying certain world developments, the Bible foretold that the last days would be marked by a change in human society. The apostle Paul described what people in general would be like.

We are told: "In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here." (Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5.) Paul said that people would be:

lovers of themselves

disloyal

When in history has it not been true that many such people exist?

If these are the signs of the "last days", then these "last days" could have been confirmed to be occurring in any time previous to now, pretty easily, by these unbelievably vague criteria.

I don't think Dane Cook is funny anymore (if ever) and the real problem is it works either way, atheist against theist or theist against atheist. He could have just as easily said that theists are annoying for all the same reasons and then you would not find him funny at all.

I disagree. The sheer amount of comedians who are atheist and vocal about it (e.g Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Carr) means that, if I was to get offended by people criticising religion, then I wouldn't find a lot of comedians funny.

When watching comedy, I try and suspend my political or religious ideals and just appreciate the jokes. There's no point getting b*tthurt over comedy.

When watching comedy, I try and suspend my political or religious ideals and just appreciate the jokes. There's no point getting b*tthurt over comedy.

Cook's style is principally "long-form storytelling"[26] and "multipurpose phrases".[3] Cook says his onstage persona is a combination of the personalities of his mom, Donna, and his dad, George. "My mother is like a Looney Tunes cartoon. She's wiggly ... She has the ability to tongue in cheek a lot, and do it in a way where she's being physical. My dad is the polar opposite. He always had a little 'what the f**k' in his voice. Even if he knew nothing about what he was talking about, he could sell it. So I looked at these two extremely funny people and created a style of comedy from absorbing their actions."[27]

He explains:

I wanted to create a stage persona for myself that allowed me to really speak about anything I want... So I can be a storyteller, I can be jokey, I can be corny, I can be a little vulgar, I can be a lot vulgar. And I'm not afraid to go anywhere to get the point of the joke across, even if I have to just blabber like a retard until it becomes apparent that I'm a retard and that the audience should laugh.

Commentators in a variety of media sources have characterized Dane Cook's humor as unfunny.[2][3][28] Comedian Ron White has criticized Dane Cook for his lack of real material and for his inflated ego; saying "[He] does not make me laugh, at all, in any way, shape or form."[29] When asked about his opinion of Cook on The Howard Stern Show, comedian Nick DiPaolo said "he doesn't make me laugh, but that doesn't mean he's not funny."[30] On Boston radio station WBCN, Dane Cook was named by radio show Toucher and Rich to a tournament of the top 16 "Worst Comedians" and, based on listener voting, was voted the "Worst Comedian" of all. In the Michigan Daily, Elie Zwiebel and co-author Jesse Bean wrote that "he's managed to become one of the most overrated comics ever" and that his act is "boringly stagnant".[31]

Jim Breuer talked about Cook's reputation within the comedy industry, saying: "Everyone kills this guy ...

Dane Cook on Atheists

http://youtu.be...

I think you killed this thread with terrible comedy.

Dane Cook?

Seriously?

I thought it was quite good...

Why, you religious or something?

I am, but you don't need to be religious to appreciate his comedy.

I don't think Dane Cook is funny anymore (if ever) and the real problem is it works either way, atheist against theist or theist against atheist. He could have just as easily said that theists are annoying for all the same reasons and then you would not find him funny at all.

I disagree. The sheer amount of comedians who are atheist and vocal about it (e.g Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Carr) means that, if I was to get offended by people criticising religion, then I wouldn't find a lot of comedians funny.

When watching comedy, I try and suspend my political or religious ideals and just appreciate the jokes. There's no point getting b*tthurt over comedy.

Cook's style is principally "long-form storytelling"[26] and "multipurpose phrases".[3] Cook says his onstage persona is a combination of the personalities of his mom, Donna, and his dad, George. "My mother is like a Looney Tunes cartoon. She's wiggly ... She has the ability to tongue in cheek a lot, and do it in a way where she's being physical. My dad is the polar opposite. He always had a little 'what the f**k' in his voice. Even if he knew nothing about what he was talking about, he could sell it. So I looked at these two extremely funny people and created a style of comedy from absorbing their actions."[27]

He explains:

I wanted to create a stage persona for myself that allowed me to really speak about anything I want... So I can be a storyteller, I can be jokey, I can be corny, I can be a little vulgar, I can be a lot vulgar. And I'm not afraid to go anywhere to get the point of the joke across, even if I have to just blabber like a retard until it becomes apparent that I'm a retard and that the audience should laugh.

Commentators in a variety of media sources have characterized Dane Cook's humor as unfunny.[2][3][28] Comedian Ron White has criticized Dane Cook for his lack of real material and for his inflated ego; saying "[He] does not make me laugh, at all, in any way, shape or form."[29] When asked about his opinion of Cook on The Howard Stern Show, comedian Nick DiPaolo said "he doesn't make me laugh, but that doesn't mean he's not funny."[30] On Boston radio station WBCN, Dane Cook was named by radio show Toucher and Rich to a tournament of the top 16 "Worst Comedians" and, based on listener voting, was voted the "Worst Comedian" of all. In the Michigan Daily, Elie Zwiebel and co-author Jesse Bean wrote that "he's managed to become one of the most overrated comics ever" and that his act is "boringly stagnant".[31]

Jim Breuer talked about Cook's reputation within the comedy industry, saying: "Everyone kills this guy ... Not one comedian comes on [my Sirius radio show] and says 'I'm so happy for him', which is weird. ... They can't stand this poor guy." Breuer went on to say that he personally thinks Cook is a "tremendous performer".[32]

Paul Provenza said that he was not a fan of his earlier work, but "...caught a couple of Dane Cook shows at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, and he was fantastic", and became a fan because he felt he had "matured".[33]

Dane Cook is not funny.

'Funny' is completely subjective. I may find him funny, but you might not. Neither one of us is wrong, because when someone says 'X is funny', they are really saying that 'I find X to be funny'.

Anyone who claims that 'X is funny objectively' is simply incorrect. A sense of humour is one of the least objective things that exist.

I find (some of) Dane Cook's comedy funny, you don't. There's nothing else to it.

WHAT DO THE FACTS SHOW? The Kingdom message is reaching all corners of the globe. In 2010 alone, Jehovah"s Witnesses spent over 1.6 billion hours proclaiming this good news in 236 lands. That is an average of 30 minutes in the preaching work each day by every Witness. Over the past decade, they have produced and distributed more than 20 billion items of Bible-education literature.

MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS OF THE LAST DAYS

Just out of curiosity...

"Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom." (Matthew 24:7)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be food shortages." (Matthew 24:7)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be great earthquakes." (Luke 21:11)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be . . . pestilences." (Luke 21:11)

When in history has this not been true?

Aside from identifying certain world developments, the Bible foretold that the last days would be marked by a change in human society. The apostle Paul described what people in general would be like.

We are told: "In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here." (Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5.) Paul said that people would be:

lovers of themselves
lovers of money
disobedient to parents
disloyal
having no natural affection
without self-control
fierce
lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God
having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power

When in history has it not been true that many such people exist?

Have people become like that in your community? No doubt they have. There are people everywhere who have bad traits. This shows that God will soon act, for the Bible says: "When the wicked sprout like weeds and all the wrongdoers flourish, it is that they may be annihilated forever.""Psalm 92:7.

https://www.jw.org...

If these are the signs of the "last days", then these "last days" could have been confirmed to be occurring in any time previous to now, pretty easily, by these unbelievably vague criteria.

Duh. Earthquakes, wars, famines and people being enemies with each other were invented in Biblical times. Didn't you know that?! :O

These "fulfilled prophecies" from Christians are as far as I've seen:

* X was said in Old Testament and it happened in New Testament (I've heard theories that the Christian Old Testament was rewritten to make Jesus seem like the Messiah, can't verify this though)

* Obvious human behaviour like the ones you just denounced in your post here.

* Prophecies about the creation of the modern state of Israel, which was something humans could acquire. If it was something more unacquirable for humans that was prophecized, like that the Polaris star was going to explode, that would be a more compelling prophecy.

I the epitome of truth could tell you that the sun will shine tomorrow. If it does, then I'm God.

Commentators in a variety of media sources have characterized Dane Cook's humor as unfunny.[2][3][28] Comedian Ron White has criticized Dane Cook for his lack of real material and for his inflated ego; saying "[He] does not make me laugh, at all, in any way, shape or form."[29] When asked about his opinion of Cook on The Howard Stern Show, comedian Nick DiPaolo said "he doesn't make me laugh, but that doesn't mean he's not funny."[30] On Boston radio station WBCN, Dane Cook was named by radio show Toucher and Rich to a tournament of the top 16 "Worst Comedians" and, based on listener voting, was voted the "Worst Comedian" of all. In the Michigan Daily, Elie Zwiebel and co-author Jesse Bean wrote that "he's managed to become one of the most overrated comics ever" and that his act is "boringly stagnant".[31]

Jim Breuer talked about Cook's reputation within the comedy industry, saying: "Everyone kills this guy ... Not one comedian comes on [my Sirius radio show] and says 'I'm so happy for him', which is weird. ... They can't stand this poor guy." Breuer went on to say that he personally thinks Cook is a "tremendous performer".[32]

Paul Provenza said that he was not a fan of his earlier work, but "...caught a couple of Dane Cook shows at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, and he was fantastic", and became a fan because he felt he had "matured".[33]

Dane Cook is not funny.

'Funny' is completely subjective. I may find him funny, but you might not. Neither one of us is wrong, because when someone says 'X is funny', they are really saying that 'I find X to be funny'.

Anyone who claims that 'X is funny objectively' is simply incorrect. A sense of humour is one of the least objective things that exist.

I find (some of) Dane Cook's comedy funny, you don't. There's nothing else to it.

Only one of us is right and it's not you.

And have you any logic or evidence to back up that statement?

Yeah, tons.

Good for you.

WHAT DO THE FACTS SHOW? The Kingdom message is reaching all corners of the globe. In 2010 alone, Jehovah"s Witnesses spent over 1.6 billion hours proclaiming this good news in 236 lands. That is an average of 30 minutes in the preaching work each day by every Witness. Over the past decade, they have produced and distributed more than 20 billion items of Bible-education literature.

MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS OF THE LAST DAYS

Just out of curiosity...

"Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom." (Matthew 24:7)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be food shortages." (Matthew 24:7)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be great earthquakes." (Luke 21:11)

When in history has this not been true?

"There will be . . . pestilences." (Luke 21:11)

When in history has this not been true?

Aside from identifying certain world developments, the Bible foretold that the last days would be marked by a change in human society. The apostle Paul described what people in general would be like.

We are told: "In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here." (Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5.) Paul said that people would be:

lovers of themselves
lovers of money
disobedient to parents
disloyal
having no natural affection
without self-control
fierce
lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God
having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power

When in history has it not been true that many such people exist?

Have people become like that in your community? No doubt they have. There are people everywhere who have bad traits. This shows that God will soon act, for the Bible says: "When the wicked sprout like weeds and all the wrongdoers flourish, it is that they may be annihilated forever.""Psalm 92:7.

If these are the signs of the "last days", then these "last days" could have been confirmed to be occurring in any time previous to now, pretty easily, by these unbelievably vague criteria.

Duh. Earthquakes, wars, famines and people being enemies with each other were invented in Biblical times. Didn't you know that?! :O

These "fulfilled prophecies" from Christians are as far as I've seen:

* X was said in Old Testament and it happened in New Testament (I've heard theories that the Christian Old Testament was rewritten to make Jesus seem like the Messiah, can't verify this though)

* Obvious human behaviour like the ones you just denounced in your post here.

* Prophecies about the creation of the modern state of Israel, which was something humans could acquire. If it was something more unacquirable for humans that was prophecized, like that the Polaris star was going to explode, that would be a more compelling prophecy.

I the epitome of truth could tell you that the sun will shine tomorrow. If it does, then I'm God.

Yep. I just wanted to see if I would get an answers from him. Nothing such, though...

He doesn't debate, he mostly writes his thoughts in the same way someone writes in their diary.
