    G'day all,

    Yep, it's mid-week and so we could take a little respite to do some scientific research.

    Here's the survey question:

    How long before you quit did you entertain doubts about "the Troof"?

    1. Not long.

    2. Months.

    3. Years

    4. Too long

    5. How could I doubt?

    6. Other (is there anything else?) - please detail


    Cheers, Ozzie

    Ok I am changing my answer because I am a dullard and totally read the question wrong.

    It was years that I had doubts. Starting on and from the age of 12, becoming stronger when I was 16, and unbearable around 20.

    *edited again, because apparently I can't spell either!*

    I had various doubts for years, even as a jw child.

    Add to that guilt for having doubts.

    Then fataIism took over and I gave up and figured I'd rather just die at Armageddon than go along with the WT crap.

    Now I'm happy and free and going to die anyway but not that bothered about it! Amazing how when I thought I had a hope (resurrection) I was scared of dying. Now that I don't have that hope, I'm not afraid of dying.

    Sorry, off topic.

    #3. <shrugging shoulder> "where else were we to go"??

    Once I read CoC, it was only minutes that I mentally left. Planning the fading, well that took a couple of years and they still came after us. Oh well. *banging head on monitor mumbling "why didn't I read CoC when it came out!* DOH!
