Is there a style guide or anything for the wiki? I'd be willing to try to update some of the information, but I don't want to step on any toes. Looking at the update history, I see that those toes are exclusively yours. If there is a set of guidelines that you expect of yourself, I'd like to know what it is.

I didn't notice that those were your toes, DaleDe. Thanks for your work on the wiki!

FREE True Devotion to Mary, from Catholic Way Publishing. In Mobi, EPub, and/or PDF.

Receive, free, an ebook, True Devotion to Mary: With Preparation for Total Consecration, from Catholic Way Publishing.

Whether you are an adherent of Roman Catholicism, some other religion, or none at all, you may find this book to be interesting, if not educational.

Here are some characteristics of this particular edition from Catholic Way Publishing:
— The Original and Best 1863 Translation from the French by Reverend Frederick William Faber, D.D.
— Two Books in One, True Devotion to Mary and 33-Day Preparation for Total Consecration
— Includes Prefaces, an Introduction, information on True Devotion and Saint Louis De Montfort
— A Classic Masterpiece of Marian Theology
— Prayers are included in each of the 33 Day Preparation Days
— Over 68,000 words including illustrations by Bartolome Esteban Murillo
— Includes an Active Index and Table of Contents
— Includes Active Links to Prayers and Endnotes

Frankly, the Kindle version is only 99 cents, but there may be a (some) greater advantage(s) to having this particular, edition. One advantage that I can think of immediately is that Amazon's ebook is available only in the mobi format, where CWP's is available in this and all other of other favorite flavors, also (i.e., PDF and ePub)--you can download one, two, or even all three formats, if you so desire.

Here are the CWP linkies to all three formats:
mobi.
ePub.
PDF.

FREE Ancillary Resources to Go Along with Ken Ham's The Lie.

I'm an audiophile.

But one disadvantage of listening to a non-fiction audiobook, without having a print copy (paper-based or digital), too, is that you "never" get the footnotes/endnotes, and other ancillary stuff that the print-based book might contain.

There are exceptions to that rule. One that immediately comes to mind is The Great Courses courses, which generally, at least, include a PDF with each course, with the PDF including such things as transcripts, footnotes/endnotes, and outlines.

The audiobook version of Ken Ham's The Lie (which refutes the theory of biological evolution), published by Master Books, is another exception. This may not be widely known, but they provide a separate digital pamphlet, free, with footnotes/endnotes for the audiobook comprising most of the 27 pages of the pamphlet. There also are some additional goodies at the end.

The link.

You can hit help in the wiki and help has a category which can be used to explore these topics. Use current pages to get an idea of organization. You can add pages for new topics such as a new product but adding to an existing page is usually the best if there is a connection . We already have more than 1500 pages. The are some templates as well shown at the bottom of the community portal.

I am the moderator and will assist as needed. I am currently sitting on a cruise ship so my responses may be a bit spotty.

I was going to say something a little less harsh, but thought I’d get in trouble from a mod.

Fwiw, I’m a very conservative Christian, but feel that the young earth creationism stuff is bunk. Teaching it to children, like Ken Ham encourages at his Noah’s Ark Museum, is borderline child abuse.

In case anyone didn't know, there is a Politics and Religion subforum that is opt-in where we are allowed to discuss the substance of creationism or other sensitive topics. In your User Control Panel, under Networking, click on Group Memberships. Add yourself to "Hardened Debaters".

This thread ensued after I posted a creationist book six years ago and was moved to P&R. I'm not suggesting that anyone necro that thread, but it contains reasons why some might want to read creationist stuff. If anyone wants to start a new thread, I'd be happy to talk about it again.

I enjoy reading books by creationist apologists and hope they keep getting posted. In fact, the posted link included a "Ken Ham timeline" that isn't in my copy of The Lie and that I found interesting.

If it makes anyone feel better, my daughter doesn't read my creationist books.

I almost forgot why I actually visited the forum.

The Jehovah's Witness Watchtower Library CD is now officially online at jw.org.

LINK

The ~3GB download is a DVD image that can either be mounted in recent versions of Windows or burned to a physical DVD. 7-Zip will open it on older versions of Windows.

This software contains a nearly full set of Watchtower publications including the NWT Bible, Watchtower and Awake magazines back to 1950 and all published books (including Reasoning from the Scriptures). Previously, the disc was only legally available from a Witness (and Witnesses weren't supposed to give them out to non-Witnesses) or eBay.

For any fellow Linux nerds, it runs in current versions of Wine.
