    Stan, I know the time has flown past so quickly, it's bloody frightening!

    Hey cantleave - it turns out you canleave!!

    Congrats to you and your family for your successful escape! It's the best thing you could have done. Who da thunk we would all be just fine, perfectly fine.

    See ya next time you are in town!

    Cheers to you and yours!

    Congratulations Cantleave! 10 years is a landmark worth pointing and celebrating.

    And a big thank you. Looking back now, it was because of people like you, cofty, and others that got me thinking beyond the mere “JW’s are wrong about the truth”, and take the hard path of examining the foundations of faith and belief and conclude that the very foundation of those - the revered sacred writings - are just totally human musings, and often not very benign ones. There is no revealed “truth” to put faith on, only facts to be dealt with.

    Life does make much more sense now, and I’ve never been happier. There are sequels from all the time my family spent in there, but we’re dealing with them, and as the petty JW world fades into the distance, we feel we gained much more than we have lost by leaving.

    All the best to you. If you ever come to Lisbon, let me know.

    Hey Eden,

    When you joined I was in my "evangelical atheism" phase (some would say I still am). I am so pleased it all worked out well for you in the end too.

    Dagney, I am in L.A in October, let's do Potholers brekky!!

    Biahi, 35 years out is awesome. My only regret is not waking up sooner.
