The pen really can be mightier than the sword, and even fiction often carries much weight and powerful messages.
Did you read a book or watch a movie that made you think? Did an "entertaining" work plant a seed of doubt?
For me, there were several. The first one I can remember making a definate comparison to the Witnesses in my mind was Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles.
Mention is made of the Martians understanding that art and science and religion could co-exist. I was always appalled that the WT literature always seemed to be pitted against science, as if there were two separate teams. In my mind, they really could coexist. In the (T)ruth, apparently they could not.
I just found the quote:
"They quit trying too hard to destroy everything, to humble everything. They blended religion and art and science, because, at base, science is no more than an investigation of a miracle we can never explain, and art is an interpretation of that miracle. They never let science crush the aesthetic and the beautiful."
What were your fictional gems, that helped to open your eyes?
