I'm not Alone! I'm not Alone! I've just had JWs visit...

Same couple as a year ago.

Usual arguments: What about the brain, eyes, etc. (All God's work, etc., etc.).

Pointed out Luke 17:20-21 that this God is not external but is inside one's imagination (which is what I think this Jesus guy was trying to say). That seemed to calm them down a bit. (They had to look it up on their phone app.).

Look forward to next year... :whistle:
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

I sometimes see them where I live but they are seriously wasting their time because I live in a Muslim
area so they have precisely zero chance of converting anyone [ something they really ought to know ]
They ever visit me again I will say absolutely nothing as silence is the most effective response to them

What did they think of Luke 17:20/21?

I only ever see them with a posterstand in the city, or once/twice a year dropping flyers in people's mailbox. Never had them actually ring the doorbell.

Back in the late '80s they were more frequent in my area, now it's as you describe - silent newspaper stands. Here in London they appear to be Polish and Russian vendors.

They sort of went quiet and talked about some other stuff. Anyway they weren't there for long. I think they suspected I was a hopeless case...
