None! They are only strange to those who don’t or want to learn from the ancient scriptures why they believe that way...
If you go to JW.org and scroll down it tell you what and why? That if you really want the Truth!

The belief that there is an ALL-POWERFUL God, which does not USE His Infinite Power to prevent incurable diseases and murders of children is not a STRANGE belief.
It is very common, among Western religions.
It is also rather silly, when examined.

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that "all Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial." (2 Tim. 3:16) We use the Bible as a practical guide to learn about the creator and to live meaningful lives.
The Bible says: "May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the most high over all the earth. " (Psalm 83:18) Therefore, we worship only Jehovah God, and as his Witnesses, we endeavor to make known his personal name. - Isaiah 43:10 - 12.
As Christians, we believe thar Jesus, "the Son of God," came to earth and became the Messiah. (John 1:34, 41; 4: 25,26) After he died, Jesus was raised to heaven. Later he became King of God's Kingdom. (Rev. 11:15) That Kingdom is a real government that will restore Paradise to the earth. (Daniel 2:44)
"The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance od peace," says the Bible. - Psalm 37: 11, 29.
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Bible principles can benefit people even today. (Isaiah 48: 17,18 ) Therefore, we adhere closely to those principles. For example, because the Bible warns us to avoid practices that pollute our minds and bodies, we do not smoke or misuse drugs. (2 Corinthians 7;1 ) We also avoid practices specifically condemned in the Bible, such as drunkenness, sexual immorality, and stealing. - 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.
To learn about our beliefs, including why we do not celebrate the holidays or accept blood transfusions, go to www.jw.org, and look under ABOUT US > FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

To be fair “strange” doesn’t mean something is untrue, it just means it is something new and different to you
“you bring some strange notions to our ears; we should like to know what these things mean" (Acts 17:20).
The Athenians described the apostle Paul’s beliefs (Christianity) as strange. Strangeness doesn’t determine truth
JW’s have false beliefs plain and simple. Strange or not they are untrue

Their strange beliefs are no different or better or worse than the strange beliefs of any religion.

At Acts 17:19, 20 we read: So they took hold of him and led him to the Areopagus, saying: “Can we get to know what this new teaching is that you are speaking about? For you are introducing some things that are strange to our ears, and we want to know what these things mean.”
Notice that Paul's teachings were strange to their ears not because it was strange per se but because it was a new teaching - one they had never heard before. Some say Jehovah’s Witnesses have strange or bizarre teachings because, according to them, the teachings are not mainstream or orthodox. But what is orthodox is determined by God, and not by man.
