The Folly of the TwoWitness Rule jehovahs witness 2 witness rule 150x150  The Folly of the Two-Witness Rule

Recently I read through a Watchtower apologist’s long defense of the Watchtower’s two-witness rule and its handling of pedophile cases in general. The defender, of course, painted the Watchtower in the best possible light and claimed that everything is done that possibly could be done while still holding to the Scriptural rules. According to this […]

Bible Family Values bible family values 150x150  Bible “Family Values”

Conservative Christians are always on about how we need to follow the Bible and return to “family values.” But what does the Bible really say about family values? Oh sure, there is one verse (out of over 31,000) that says “Honor your mother and father.” But that’s not the whole story — not by a […]

1914 Debunked Yes Seriously 1914 debunked 150x150  1914 Debunked! Yes, Seriously….

The year 1914 came and went quite a while ago. In fact, by my calculations, if I base today’s date (6th June 2015) and count backwards to 6th June 1914, Google tells me a period of 36,878 days, or 101 years have come and gone between today’s date and 1914. “Fascinating Jaymes, but can you […]

 Don’t Kill the Messenger!

There is a persistent myth that the kings and emperors of old were in the habit of murdering messengers who delivered bad news to them. It appears that this rarely actually happened. However, it has spawned this great saying: “Don’t kill the messenger!” [Or, in the gun-obsessed culture of the U.S.: “Don’t shoot the messenger!”] […]

When I was Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness, I wouldn’t have dreamed of ever accepting a blood transfusion, nor would I have donated blood for blood transfusions. That’s right, I would have allowed myself to die. No really, I would have preferred death. If you’re new to this website and aren’t a Jehovah’s Witness, I’m […]

Chapter One – Eve Adam is again off somewhere. God knows where. In fact, I can ask him, but then again he never gives me a straight answer. He’s more into watching us than he is listening. I sometimes get the feeling that he’s watching me when I least expect it, which is creepy, but then […]

“The Lottery” is a short film I saw in school at an impressionable age (I hope I’m still at an impressionable age — though not quite as malleable as I once was.) Of the few things I remember having learned in school, this one holds a very prominent place. Something happened recently which recalled The […]

Imagine that you’re walking along, minding your own business, when suddenly a stranger dressed in rags gets in your face and demands that you hit him! Naturally you take him for a crazy man, and decline to strike him. Then he threatens you, claiming that you will be killed for not having obeyed him! A […]
