I want as much data as possible on the effect of the internet on the time captured by the cult.
Please answer the three following questions about yourself or about someone you know (for example, if your parents or grandparents were JW's and left)
1) were you raised as a JW, or did you convert?
2) when were you baptized/started seriously being with the witnesses? (Date please, i.e. 1997)
3) when did you leave/woke up completely? (date please, i.e. 2013)
Please do the time difference between 2 and 3...
Time in: 16 years
I think this would be an interesting stat that has never been done before. I am certain that the results will be that the internet significantly reduces time in for everyone. A graph of "time in" vs year would be very insightful. I am sure that there will be more "lifers" in previous generations, and much less now.
I have tried this with another group on Facebook called exJW Recovery Group 3, and my own Facebook page in Spanish. So far, I have had about 60 responses and a clear trend can be seen, but I would like to have one thousand (1000) responses to have some very solid data.
Your help with this will be greatly appreciated!
Here is the graph with the responses so far:
