I wonder if there was a poll conducted, if the born ins tend to go direct to agnostic/atheist and the converted to JWs from christianity stop at
That's a very interesting question, notjustyet. Worth its own thread.
I tried it a few weeks ago, and it didn't work. Here is the thread: http://www.jehovahs-witness.net/jw/friends/241657/1/Survey-Who-here-is-an-atheist-Who-here-still-believes-in-God The variety of beliefs makes it an almost impossible topic. Why? Some are in between right now. Some hold on to a form of Christianity, while identifying themselves as agnostic. Some turn to atheism and then to Christianity. Others turn to Christianity and then to atheism. Some believe that parts of the Bible are accurate while others are not. Some believe the entire bible is accurate. Some believe in an "energy" of the universe, but not a personal God. Some believe that God created, but just doesn't care anymore.
It's impossible to lump people into the specific labels of "believer, non believer, atheist, agnostic, agnostic/atheist" etc
