« "You have to consider we’re only made out of dust": The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch re-viewed | Main | Roger Elwood dies »

June 19, 2007



I actually just finished reading "Dead Horse Point," and I also thought it was brilliantly crafted. Daryl Gregory has done it once again.

But I found the joke about Jehovah's Witnesses rather misinformed. Coming from a family of Jehovah's Witnesses, I can say for a fact that they don't believe in Predestination.

I had also not heard of the joke before, but if it's an old one, whoever came up with it has no idea what Jehovah's Witnesses believe.

I just read this story in a Science Fiction "best of" anthology, and found this entry while searching for the joke to see if it was original. Apparently it is.

He changed it to "A Calvinist goes to heaven" in the reprint, so apparently the commenter above wasn't the only one to observe the "Jehovah's Witness / predestination" incongruity.
