" who don't seem to understand even the most basic tennants of logic." Who do these tennants pay rent to ? or did you mean tenets ?
I think the basic point you make in the O.P, that we needn't pat ourselves on the back for being such smartarses that we woke up to TTATT has been made by me and many others when we let out the plaintive cries on here "Why did it take me so long to see it was all crap?" and "How could I have been so stupid ?" etc etc (One from me especially was "My kids worked out it was crap when they were teenagers, it took me till I was nearly 60!")
I realised soon after finding this Site that I was woefully ignorant about so much, I had lived a whole lifetime in the JW Bubble of Ignorance.
I set out from then on to educate myself, and to teach myself the arts of Logical and Critical Thinking, along with other skills denied to the JW's.
I find it strange that once given the freedom to do so, a few others on here evidently do not, the questions asked, and opinions given by some show a lack of self-education which it takes little effort to achieve with the use of the Internet.
Learning is a joy, if any have the intellectual lazy streak encouraged, well enforced, in JW's still hanging on, then get rid of it, whatever effort you expend in reading and learning will be repaid at least tenfold.
