as a child l realized they were false prophets making predictions that harmageddon was coming in 1975.
Sorry I just found this thread, now.
Well, how can I put it. It was a couple of things back in the 1990s. The fall of the communist block which negated the whole ''king of the north'' drivel and then the 1995 generation flip flop. That generation flip flop was a turning point. I wondered if they changed generation, then what else could the ''Society'' have changed. I wondered how many other things have they made up. Well, my ''suspicion'' was just that. That they have been making things up probably ''all along''.

I posted about this just before the Caleb and Sophie videos and new bible story book came out for children, and I’ve always wondered if somebody at WT read my posts .... but perhaps that is giving them (or myself) too much credit ....
I did the math. There were 7,000,000,000 people and 7,000,000 Jehovah's Witnesses so only 1/10 of one percent can be saved by their god?
After years of knowing it was probably all crap and they were making it up as they went along, the 1995 generation change sealed it for me, but I continued until one meeting I truly felt like I didn't belong there anymore and never went back.
