A Word to Visiting Jehovah's Witnesses

If anyone tells you that you shouldn't look at opposing information to theirs, something is wrong. The real truth will stand up to any scrutiny.

The MatrixIf you are happy in your current religion, then this really isn't the place for you. We aren't offering you something better here, it's like Morpheus said in the movie The Matrix, "You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more."

The people on this website were just like you, most born and raised as true believers. It isn't easy to find out that there is no 'New System" coming, no God watching over you, that everything you see around you really is just a random roll of the galactic dice. It's also not easy losing your conditional friends and family because you no longer believe as they do. And that is also why this website is here, these are the same good-hearted people you knew from your Kingdom Hall...just more educated now.

So if that doesn't sound appealing to you, we really do say in all sincerity; this isn't the place for you, move along and enjoy your version of 'the truth'.

But if you must know the real truth no matter the consequences, then take the red pill and start educating yourself without fear. "The world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. That you are a slave Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind."

But remember, "This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. I'm trying to free your mind, but I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it."

Once you know, you can't unknow.
