Go to: Two Ex-Jehovah Witnesses to Tell Why They Became Atheists

""I'm not angry, and I did not leave because something happened to me. I left because I had questions that they couldn't answer," says Ann."

I have tried for many years to find a relevant question that cannot be answered - without success

"For Ben, it was the feeling of being subjected continuously to what he calls thought control. "They don't want you to be educated because you would be subjected to influences that might be contrary to the doctrine. It's Orwellian, almost like thought police," he says."

Some with weak minds will go along with whatever they are taught (we get this from schools, government, dawkins.com, religion - everywhere). Others like me like to think for themselves

Your actually reading these magazines and talking about them? I guess that will make the publishers very happy

                 How about getting a copy of "The Magic of Reality" and reading a bit of it to your kids every night. Teach them these stories are exactly that! Stories. And there are other stories, better stories, out there.

"Origin of the species" could be a better story

@ GENERICGUY

I only read your piece briefly but it appears logically sound. But i think it depends on your point of view.

If Jesus raised people from the dead then would you consider his power natural or supernatural? If he did it then in your logic it would be downgraded to natural. But many who believe still consider it it to be supernatural because from their perspective it was an unatural power that was being displayed. That is unatural from their perspective and even so from the modern day perspective of medicine and science.
