    I once gave a talk from the platform that said "what's right for one time, may not be right for another time". I used this line of reasoning to gloss over the issues of stoning, slavery, polygamy and "perceived" failed predictions.

    Yes, i was that brainwashed.

    However, at the same time id criticize other religions for doing the same thing.

    Yes, It is possible to Disprove that the WT is God's Organization, to people with an open mind and who respects truth.

    The Watchtower Publishing house has been mostly wrong for over 100 years.

    It continuously proclaimed bullshit to not only allure people to its publications but to create ignorant naive believers.

    I don’t think it’s possible to prove JWs are wrong. It’s not possible to prove they’re right either, of course, until Armageddon comes.

    I think it is easy to prove (to any sensible level or standard) to a rational, logical and impartial person, that the JWs are wrong. It is just impossible to prove it to a thoroughly indoctrinated JW.

    Yes it depends on your background and perspective how persuasive arguments will be.

    "A man believes what he wants to believe and disregards the rest" (Lyricist: Paul Simon, "The Boxer")

    Mundus vult decipi, a Latin saying from several centuries ago which translates in English as, "The world wants to be deceived". People believe what they believe to meet their emotional needs - not because their beliefs have been thoroughly and completely scrutinized and checked.

    It's easy to disprove the WTS's teachings.

    What's not easy is getting brainwashed believers to accept the proof and the facts.

    JWs listen to the Organisation because of WHO and WHAT it claims to be, regardless of whatever it says.

    Or perhaps they follow the Organisation because they know the personal cost associated with being disfellowshiped.

    The WTS rips families apart, causes children to bleed to death, and the way they play with people's minds it causes untold mental instabilities, where people are forced to say and believe things they do not genuinely agree with, only to find that the Organisation changes its mind and JWs now find that the thoughts they had to suppress had now become True. Is there anything that is True? If so, how will a JW ever know?

    My bigger question is: What is it in people that makes them believe a myth?

    Jehovah`s Witnesses have been preaching "This Good News Of The Kingdom " for well over a hundred years ?

    Well you could have fooled me.! I was a JW for 33 years preaching from D2D most of that time .

    I was always following the directions of the Society as to what was to be highlighted that month and when I stop and think about it ,it was never about the good news of the Kingdom ,it was always about some other topic that was supposed to engage the householder

    .I think the beginning of my awakening was when I realized that in any given street if you asked a householder what JW`s believed it was never about the "Good News of The Kingdom" that they heard it was always about the blood issue or no voting in elections and nothing else.

    That was the extent of their knowledge of Jehovah`s Witnesses .

    And it puzzled me ,why after all this time preaching the average householder had no idea why we were on their doorsteps unless it was to gain converts in their view.

    It's perfectly simple to prove the JWs are wrong in hundreds of different ways. Of course to disciples of Derrida nothing is true or false.
