    I think this month is two years since I saw londo’s videos on “When Ancient Jerusalem Was Destroyed”

    Those videos started the whole awaking process. By Oct 2013 I was fully awake.

    It seems like 10 or 15 years since I left the WT Organization. I believe the reason being is that so much has changed in two years.

    When I left there was;

    No JWbroadcasting,

    JWdotOrg was just a .

    No JWdotOrg flags and emblems

    No mobile carts,

    No ATM’s at conventions

    They were still called conventions

    We still had two day assemblies

    People would bring their Bibles to the Kingdom Hall

    You would get taken to the back and counseled if you brought a IPad to the Hall.

    Bethel had not been vacated

    There was still District Overseers.

    Still had Two meetings during the Circuit Overseer Visit

    Had One anointed brother under age 25 in the hall now there is three under 25 years of age.

    Sisters could marry a brother that was not a ministerial Servant without being reproached.

    There are 10 less young ones in my old Kingdom Hall. Parents are sad they don’t want the tRuTh.

    Still had coordinators age 70 and up.

    My Kingdom Hall had been paid off for about 25 years and they had a ton of money in the Bank. Now they have a regular payment and it’s an old hall. .

    Never heard of the terms “Tight Pants and spandex.

    Never seen a GB giving a talk on TV.

    Never seen a GB pleading for money on TV. Wow just like a Jimmy Swaggart.

    Never seen or imagine something like the Royal Commission exposing all the sexual cover-ups by the WT

    Never seen Bethel workers dancing to songs like “Happy” on YouTube.

    Never seen an EX-jw YouTube video.

    Had no idea what JWSTRUGGLE OR JW SURVEY was.

    Didn’t know AJWRB Existed.

    I still believed Noah gathered all the animals around the world into an ARK.

    Still believed I was living in the last days.

    This is what has happened to the organization in just two years.

    And none of my friends including my Ex can see this.

    Wow! A lot has changed. I had forgotten about a lot of that stuff.

    Thanks for the shout out.

    Three years ago this month, I attended my last meeting. I think this October will make 4 years having started to do research and awaken.

    This thread helped tremendously: http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/215282/wt-nov-1-2011-public-when-ancient-jerusalem-destroyed-part-2?size=10&page=1

    I'm very thankful for AnnOMaly and others who dug into this and did the deep research.

    So was it in the year 2011 that there was a consensus here on this website that 607 was a wrong date? Was in in that year that ex-jws finally pulled the curtain on 607-1914 false dates?
  • Londo111

    That curtain had been pulled back in the late 70's by Carl Olaf Johnson, of course. And really it had been decided by acedemics long before.

    Unfortuntely, 2011 was the year I chose to look, rather than years before. AnnOMaly and others had been around this board many years before debating apologists such as "Scholar".

    2011 was the year we had been waiting for...

    Finally, an answer as to why "this magazine" (the Awake, thru October 22, 1995, page 4) that "builds confidence in the Creator's promise of a peaceful and secure new world before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away"

    changed in the November 8, 1995 issue to

    "the "magazine builds confidence in the Creator's promise of a peaceful and secure new world that is about to replace the present wicked, lawless system of things."

    2011 Watchtowers (Oct 1 & Nov 1) had the articles on 607.... That did it for us. This time, there were references, books, pages, author's names. We looked them up, did the math, and were out. No 607 meant no 1914, no 1919, no GB!

    Londo's vids were great! Sometimes it's hard to simplify WT garbage. Londo, you did awesome!

    Yep, we remember AnnOMaly, and all the other diligent scholars... We could NOT believe that others had figured this out oh so long before us!

    Thank you all!

    Thank you, cha ching!

    I’m absolutely loath at self-promotion, but if any JW has stumbled on this thread and is considered doing this research, perhaps this can be a starting place for you. But in the end, do your own research!
