    Welcome F the F's ! We welcome all here, even the downright strange ! When I first started reading here, long before I posted, I only had one major problem with WT/JW teaching, something that was taught as truth, but simply not in the Bible.

    As a born-in I had lots of minor quibbles and things that nagged at me, but just the one biggie.

    I did as suggested above, and used the search button, and read a lot of threads that illuminated a lot for me. In the weeks and months after starting to post I received kind and instructive answers, even to quite crass questions I now realise.

    The community here is loving and respectful , and very supportive, I found it a difficult time at first, readjusting a lifetimes view on a number of important things, I got the help here to see me through.

    We are an eclectic group, but nearly all seem to be fun loving, which is great.

    Welcome again.

    This is an unusual place it's for free and open discussions as well as fun and creative threads the only rule is don't get in the gutter just converse like a decent human being. It's fine to be controversial just don't get real mean about it. Look forward to your input.

    another thread mentioned that an email they received said that djegnogg had passed away?

    Really? He was posting on here a couple of weeks ago...

    Welcome, FaceTheFacts. I always enjoy discussions better when I contribute. As hard as it can be sometimes, I walk away from discussions that annoy me.

    Welcome FaceTheFacts!

    Anyone willing to do an honest, open-minded review of the Watchtower Society, warts and all, without defending the indefensible, and without double standards, is welcome here, I imagine.

    Seekers are easy to talk to and engage.

    Blind trolls however display an embarrassing lack of integrity, honesty, rationality, intellect and sincerity.

    "what on earth has happened to this board? I dont really see any substantial topics on JWs, mostly semantic gymnastics regarding atheism and creation"

    What a rude thing to say. You used your very first post on this forum to insult others.

    Please read these two books:

    Crisis of Conscience by Ray Franz

    Combatting Cult Mind Control by Steve Hassan

    My apologies. I did not mean it as an insult. Im just describing what I see a lot of threads become (i.e. arguing over the morphology of words and a lot of back and forth about what this means and what it doesnt). The most popular recent JW-centered thread was about 607 so I guess I should start there, eh?

    I'll say welcome for now, but you are attacking us right off the bat. If you show respect to everyone here, you will generally do fine. If you are looking for answers, its gonna be an emotional journey. Good luck in finding the answers you are looking for.
