I naively assumed there was nothing about the church worth reading on the Internet in those days (2000-2005).
Some of you may remember that http://www.lds.org
evolved very slowly, and in the early days, the official site did not have much information. So I almost never looked for church information online in that period when my shelf was collapsing.
The benefit of this is that I can honestly say I lost my testimony mainly because of scripture study, prayer, and church attendance. Only after quitting the church did I read facts and evidence that made me feel like an idiot for not quitting sooner.
