    Hello, i am new in this forum. I have been trying to find a lot of things since i have a lot of JW around me and always wanted to find evidences to prove them wrong. I hope to find myself good and find enough information in this site to be able to talk with them. So if anyone has help where to start with, links information, basic advance anything would be good. Thank you a lot.

    Hi Saiera, welcome to the forum, I'm sure you will find lots of useful information here, whether the witnesses around you will listen to it is another thing.

    Try the 'best of' section, that should get you started.

    I came to this site for the same reasons you did. I've never been a dub, just have a good friend who's one. Just read a lot. You'll will learn a TON of stuff to not only figure out their quirkyness, but how to counter their biblical 'wisdom'. Whatever you do, DO NOT indicate you're getting anything online, unless it's just general biblical information. I've brought up numerous JW historical changes that my friend wasn't aware of and gave them some 'food for thought'..... although a couple of times I've brought up things they couldn't refute and they ended up shunning me for several days. good luck!

    Welcome Saiera, you will certainly find plenty of resources here for countering the arguments of the JWs and lots of replies if you ask questions on issues you don't understand well.

    Hi Saiera,

    Welcome to the board. It is good to be informed, you'll probably end up knowing more about JW history than your JW friends do.

    My personal experience is that you can't dissuade anyone from being a JW unless they want to leave - they will just block out any negative information. The best thing you can do is let them know that your friendship is not conditional on what they believe - you accept them as a JW or Methodist or Sikh or atheist. Unconditional, accepting friendship is something they will never get from other JWs.

    Kindness from non-JWs got me out.

    All the best!
