Hello
Hi. I'm Andrew from Colorado, USA. My wife & I escaped from the Jehovah's Witness cult last year. We're both in our early 30s & were indoctrinated since birth. It cost me my family & many close friends, but I don't regret leaving. It is liberating to finally embrace reality & reason and to learn all of the amazing science that has been kept from me. I've been bingeing on the podcast while at work for the past couple months & I look forward to meeting like minded people here on the forum.

I've only recently grown rudimentary legs and made the move from water to land.

Hello!

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

RE: Hello
Congratulations on your escape. Welcome to TTA.


There is a thread for deconversion stories; maybe you'd like to describe how you cut through the barbed wire and evaded the searchlights to effect your escape. Smile

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Hello
Congrats.....

I wonder if it's harder to get out of the JW's than it is to get out of North Korea????

...

I'd buy a beer for anyone who managed either...

RE: Hello
Welcome to the forum. A coworker who became a good friend escaped the JWs. I met her toward the end of her deconversion. It was a painful process for her but her life is fantastic now - especially since she was finally able to help her daughter escape too. I hope that your transition from JW continues to go well.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. -JF

RE: Hello
I am so very glad to hear that you are brave enough to escape. My grandmother ( my mother's mother) was a christian scientist and my older brother was a jehovahs witness, both cults caused a lot of damage to our extended family. My brother is very happy to be away from it, and has made new friends and has a happy life. How wonderful for you to finally be able to learn the science that was kept from you. I am brand new here too. Does your wife come online too?
