Ok I've been thinking about posting this for a while. I'd really love to see what people think, there might even be people who think the same thing.
As JW's we got every single little thing rammed down our throats right? So, we had set beliefs or answers for everything- does God exist?, are there aliens? do ghosts exist? so on and so forth.... there was always an answer to everything. Much of it (if not all of it) came down to faith and/or believing what were told to believe.
Since I've left and researched things a little myself, i find myself in a place where I actually dont have anything set out as answers in front of me. I think I believe in God (or something), but thats about it. Do ghosts exist? I dont know, I havent seen one! Do aliens exist? I dont know. Is the bible true? I dont know. Is the davinci code true? I dont know. Evolution or creation? I dont know.
Its like i actually feel free to come to my own conclusions as and when I see fit.
Now unless someone comes along and gives me the concrete evidence that I would need to believe something, my thoughts are going to stay the same. There will probably always be arguments for and against. No one can prove things like this without relying somewhat on faith.
Naturally I have a bit of a sour taste in my mouth when it comes to organised religion. I struggle to see how an organised religion can prove to you they are right and everyone else is either wrong or havent got it totally right. Surely what they believe is either a 'mans' opinion or they have been 'shown' something else somehow. I mean especially JW's they have only been going what not even 150 years. How arrogant is it that THEY say THEY have it right and no one else does? maybe I'm completey wrong....
Anyway, if you are down this far, thanks for reading. I really want to know your opinion! What do you believe? If you believe in something firmly- why? What proved it to you? What gave you what you needed?
Maybe I'm waaaaay off here. But I've come a long way since first coming to this forum... and right now I'm as happy as I have ever been.
