    As opposed to all those things that other religions believe, which have been comprehensively proven to be true, right? :)

    @ Shinj - the Christian thing, I think, was just because it was the easiest thing for Taze Russell to hijack.

    Oh, come on - if we're going to discount faiths on the grounds of their founders using their dogma solely as a basis for establishing some kind of political or economic power, then we're going to be discounting a LONG list of faiths. Including just about every mainstream form of Christianity, most major Islamic sects, just about ALL of Buddhism, etc....

    (I'm not really defending Jehovah's Witnesses, as I do broadly agree that they're a shower of mentalists - but they're a shower of mentalists on broadly the same axis as the rest of Christianity over a whole host of things. If anything, they serve as a useful illustration of where the extremes of faith can bring people - they're practically a recruitment poster for a secular society.)
