    The worst thing is that these people could all be really nice if they weren't Dubs.
    And that they all have way better Mad HTML Skillz than yours truly.

    Yes, sad, I had to stop reading when I saw the misuse of the word 'truth':

    Truth: the state or quality of being true

    Error: a departure from the truth in a statement or in a belief

    Err: to make a mistake, to be wrong

    Under the dictionary definitions “the truth” cannot contain “errors”; truth and error are incompatible. This would suggest that truth also means infallible.

    If something described as “the truth” yesterday is acknowledged as error today, was it ever “truth”? By the same token, if “the truth” is what is being taught today, does that mean it will never be considered as “error” in the future?

    If we are not very careful, the concept of truth could become pretty meaningless, and just about anyone could claim to be in “the truth”. I need to understand exactly what is meant by people who claim to be in “the truth”. Rightly or wrongly, my own feeling is that “truth” must be absolute and unchanging. When Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life...” I believe he meant an unchanging, eternal truth. What is the Watchtower’s definition of “the truth”?

    Oh but those pages were so very exciting! All about Jehovah and the Bible and how happy they were to be serving Jah and his bOrganization! Sheesh. I don't think I saw an honest opinion there.

    Yeah, and that could have been me.
    If, you know. I was a mindless drone without a thought in my pretty little head.
    I was impressionable, too, you know!
