Did Jesus Exist?

November 18, 2015 - 9:51 pm | 16 Comments

The question never entered my mind as a Witness (or as a Catholic, for that matter.) It seemed it was a given — just as the divine inspiration of the Bible and the existence of our god was a given: Jesus existed. Even since leaving all organized religion, I have been told again and again […]

Is the Bible God’s Word?

October 4, 2015 - 9:56 am | 4 Comments

What if the Bible was not “God’s word” after all? That would mean the entire basis of the Watchtower religion [along with other Christian religions] would be, well: baseless! But, can we prove that the god Jehovah didn’t inspire the writing of the Bible? Well, yes and no. As always, we must first determine what […]

The Fine Line Between Cults and Religions

September 15, 2015 - 4:46 pm | One Comment

On Sunday, the JW Podcast Team (Lloyd, Louise, Stephanie, Patricia and me) interviewed a former Scientologist, Chris Shelton. Now before I get into the inner workings of my views with regards to the interview, which went well by the way, I think it’ll be good for me to tell you where I currently stand when […]

Jesus Now Accepts Plastic

August 23, 2015 - 2:23 pm | 10 Comments

I’m lost for words. Those of you that know me understand that that’s a rare phenomenon. Why am I lost for words? The above picture – taken at the 2014 convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Zimbabwe – is shocking. The first thing that sprang to mind were the words in the Gosepls: 15 So after […]

Lying for Jehovah!

August 20, 2015 - 7:57 pm | 9 Comments

From: Brother Geoffrey Jackson Date: August 15, 2015 To: Fellow members of the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses Dear brothers, While I was in Australia looking after my ailing father, Satan managed to  haul me before his representatives in the government: the so-called Royal Commission.

The Folly of the Two-Witness Rule

July 25, 2015 - 4:08 pm | 4 Comments

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”

July 19, 2015 - 9:38 pm | 2 Comments

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….

June 6, 2015 - 8:24 am | 9 Comments

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!

May 17, 2015 - 6:47 pm | No Comment

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!”] […]

The Problem with Blood Fractions

April 25, 2015 - 8:19 pm | 2 Comments

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 […]
