So glad you are here to brighten my day, Anna Marina. Yes, "Atheism may require a tweek". Lol. But no "prophecy or raising the dead"? Aw, that's too bad. Watchtower has experimented with "prophecy". They seem to have found that if the "pay-off" is too far in the future, people loose interest in working day and night for the "religion",... but if the "pay-off" is scheduled to arrive too soon, then reality catches up with the religion when the date comes but nothing happens. And then that requires a stroke of genious like "over-lapping generations" to postpone a mass exodus.
LMsA is probably right where he said,
" I think [Evans] was planning on living a life of semi-retirement from exJW activism at his beach retreat and handing over the keys to the Lloyd Evans channel... '
[to a paid worker], and just making cameo appearances himself. Ah, the good life! Opps! Where'd it go?
Somehow, I just don't see Evans' soaring to success and being hailed as a hero on the shoulders of his fellow Atheists. I mean, after all, didn't most of them become atheists because they were fed up with paying tribute to religious leaders? Maybe he can still sell key fobs, Croatian folk crafts,... oh yeah, and music albums.
