Here's the sad thing.
He's right and wrong.
He's right in that he can have a happy little life with his little pretend truth and everything will be just lovely.... right up until something shitty happens... a bad car accident, one of his kids get D'd, a brother in the congregation defrauds him, one of his own kids gets molested... the list goes on.
Then, as we all know, the lovely little social club they have going gets really ugly and very painful.
Of course, his world view is based on some factually ludicrous beliefs about the state of the world. Contrary to his assertions, crime is not spiraling out of control, the world is not falling apart and getting worse, life is not grinding into a swamp of mindless options.
Living a real life, based on an evident reality, after waking up from the JW's is like going to the Doctor, finding you're really sick with something, and deciding to you're going to damn well put up a fight and make the very best of beating what you've got or learning to live with it and having the best life possible in the time remaing. Sticking your head in the sand is not the answer.
What's incredible is that he admitted they have openly discussed some of these issues across multiple families. That is actually a great inspiration --- how many others are doing the same?
It makes me think we need more articles on the "apostate" websites that go beyond the immediate fact of an argument and explore the implications.
For example -- if 607 is wrong, does that just mean 1914 out by 20 years? That the end is further away? That the prophecy has some other explanation?
Personally, I went through this line of questioning and it was in fact the follow on discoveries that really blew my mind. When I realised the WT's 607 spin was a conscious deception, that the entire prophecy has no possible Bible based larger interpretation, that in fact it's impossible to prove any Bible prophecy was written before the fact and that there are scores of other similar books to the Bible books that had similar metaphors, made similar odd predictions, and are evidence that these kinds of writings were common place and meaningless.
Then, your perspective truly shifts.
