    Homerovah the Almighty

    I was born and raised in it , have been out now for some 30 years

    The ever present commercializing of lies, was probably the most pressing reason for me to leave " The Truth " even at that young age I was aware what that term meant.

    Since my leaving I have slowly evolved into an atheist / humanist and I'm quite happy in being one.

    Born into it. Still in because of family only.

    I've been "disconnected from the Matrix" for at least 1 year.

    That makes 34 years in, 1 out...

    I was also raised in it. I left for good, last KH visit.... in my early 20's. But really started having problems in my early teens.

    I used to think it was because I was weak. Maybe something wrong with me mentally, or I was posessed.

    Now I know it was because I was strong.

    I don't even want to think what it would have been like if I'd stuck it out, to keep my conditional family and friends, and it makes me sick to think I could have raised my children to believe it and we would not have the strong family we have now.

    26 years...I had nagging doubts about many things over the years but pushed them to the back of my mind while "Waiting on Jehovah"

    Then in 1998 I began to have so many strong doubts there was no pushing them to the back of my mind and while doing research and looking for the watchtower's web site I stumbled on the free minds web site, I disassociated in 2000.
