explaining 1914 will be easy now--the road is plowed, i'm ready to roll
You've gotten some very good advice here, and some that won't do you any good in this situation. Apparently, you only heard the advice you were hoping to get. That's okay; most people do. But do yourself a big favor and go back and read the comments that urge you to just take it easy and chill.
Your subject headline: "family emergency" says it all. This is not an emergency. This is your dad, the fully immersed elder, challenging you to overturn the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society's teachings. This is you, in a big hurry to pounce on this opportunity.
You aren't seeing the big picture. He's comfortable asking you to do the reseach because he has a set of expectations:
1. He is almost certain that in doing this research, you will see the folly of your ways and embrace "the truth."
2. If that doesn't happen, it won't be about the material or the research; it will prove you have been overreached by Satan and are completely "gone."
What you aren't getting is that he doesn't think it is possible to prove the WTS wrong about anything. Do you hear that? Read it again - it's IMPOSSIBLE for God to lie, says so right in the scriptures, and God (Jehovah) speaks through the organization. Ergo, the organization doesn't lie, either.
So you and your dad are entering this room using different doors. From his perspective, this is about reactivating you and bringing you "back" to the Kingdom Hall. From yours, this is about proving the WTS to be a stinking liar and your dad, dazzled by your brilliance, having an epiphany and saying, "My God, man, I've been lied to. Let's go set fire to the Hall."
You are disfellowshipped. In his mind, that certifies that you are miles away from Jehovah's spirit. Therefore, no argument, no amount of "so-called knowledge" you possess, can possibly be worth listening to. And he won't.
But that's just my opinion. I hope I'm wrong.
