Re: question for exjws (reply)
I never had any confidence in astrology... it was all bunk. I had a bit of a hard time with movies about the supernatural, but reason finally kicked in and I watched "The Exorcist." It was pure entertainment... even funny. My wife, who...

Whatever they were, they weren't dinosaurs. They all died out suddenly about 65 million years ago. One of our oldest cousins, Lucy, lived about 3 million years ago.

Re: So what am I supposed to do? (reply)
I do have faith that the bible is from God. The fact that there are so many christian religions, and yet the bibles all say the same thing, has to be more than a coincidence.Just as there is one Quran available to all and yet there are...

JJ, I did not welcome you to the board in my post, so, a big welcome to you. I see you first posted a couple of months ago, I think it's good for you to be here and to talk some of this out with folks that have been in your shoes (like...

Re: So what am I supposed to do? (reply)
Jjdupri, yep, you are going through it. By "it" I mean trying to reconcile your ability to think critically, which you obviously are doing, and the entire familial and social structure you have acquired by becoming a Witness. It is...

Re: The Greatest Show on Earth: The evidence for evolution (reply)
Wow, thank you both for your replies. I actually think I struggle when trying to get thoughts across in writing. Dawkins does it beautifully. I have a really hard time in live conversation, and I seem to be getting worse as I get...

Re: The Greatest Show on Earth: The evidence for evolution (reply)
That's a good question about my first talk on the Flood. Yes, I did go ahead and give it, and I believed every word I spoke from the platform--at the time. The fact that I couldn't find any scientific corroboration for it just made me...

Re: The Greatest Show on Earth: The evidence for evolution (reply)
Please Humble, do NOT take any of this personally... I used to believe that man showed up suddenly on earth 6,000 years ago, and even though God created other life forms before he created man, none of them were created millions or...

Hi Humblelove, I thought this thread was so old that no one would comment on my post. Thanks for reading and responding.It sounds to me like you are a "creationist." The world today isn't the world that was originally created.You also...

Re: The Greatest Show on Earth: The evidence for evolution (reply)
I bought "The Greatest Show on Earth" a few years ago and never read it. On our 10 day vacation to Cabo last week I finally finished it. Extremely good reading. He starts out by showing how easily we have created all kinds of variations...

According to other statements the GB has made about child abuse, they should not prevent or discourage anyone from going to the authorities about these cases... although not once in the letter did I see that statement. The FIRST action...

Re: Friend told me she is becoming a Jehovah's Witness (reply)
They leave many things up to the "local body of elders" or the BOE. They do this because of differences in cultures, not only around the world but even "local" customs and opinions. The truly bad part of all that is the local BOE have...

Or if you decide to meet with them, take someone with you as a witness to what's said.Like a lawyer. They would never meet with you if you said you wanted a lawyer there.I dunno, I was reading SailAway's comments and it occurred to me...

Re: It just keeps getting better... (reply)
I could not believe that someone this high up in the Borg would make such a stooooopid statement.I guess if there is more evidence for God's Kingdom beginning to rule in 1914 then we can just toss "faith" right out the window. Who needs...

Re: JW propaganda on FB (reply)
You could do a "reverse-shun" and delete them from your FB page. I've had family and "friends" do that to me. And all I did was post a few quotes from their own literature, I did not even comment on the quotes.I guess it depends on how...

Re: Basics... (reply)
There was no one realization that caused the whole tapestry of "the truth" to come undone. It was a cumulative process of little realizations... there were things I just could not accept and did not believe. One of the big ones was the...
