Reading your previous post, I’ve come to realize that you are either one of the authors of pro-607BC site or you basically plagiarized the content by copying and pasting it as most of what you say here is word-for-word same as on that site.
I’ll give you a benefit of a doubt and say it is the former. With that in mind I would like to ask for a clarification.
Before that, I have to say that referencing of your site is shockingly bad as in any WTBS literature; and I do not say that with sarcasm but with a dose of understanding because I used to make the same mistakes before. I remember writing my first assignment as a freshman at university using basically a type of referencing (or lack of it) learned from WTBS. Luckily the content of what I’ve written was so good that professor didn’t want to fail me, but has made a comment that I have to quickly learn how to reference properly or I won’t go beyond the first year of university, You know of course what type of referencing I’m talking about, just mentioning a title of a book or even worse saying “so and so said that” without pointing were the quote was taken from, etc. Given the fact that the only literature Witnesses see is from WTBS it is not surprising that most of them tend to equally neglect proper referencing.
Now, why am I saying that? In Appendix A of your site you say, and I quote:
This website has shown that 607BCE — not 587BCE — is indeed the year that Jerusalem was desolated according to irrefutable evidence in God's word the Bible. Even some of those who have previously tried to discredit Jehovah's Witnesses by saying 607BCE is incorrect, are now forced to admit that it may indeed be the right after all, because they have no clear answer for the Biblical evidence presented. (Italicized by me)
(Anonymous, 2006, Appendix A, The Seven Time Prophecy, viewed 29 August 2006, http://www.jehovahsjudgment.co.uk/607/appendix.html )
I would like to ask who are those people that now admit that Jehovah’s Witnesses “may indeed be right after all”. Are those people with some scholarly repute or are these people you generally meet in your door-to-door ministry?
When you make such a startling claim it really must be supported by more concrete reference than just mere statement of ‘admission’.
It is quite important to give a proper reference in such a matter or one can basically be accused of intellectual dishonesty. Which I’m sure you as a god-fearing person would like to avoid.
So please, do enlighten me with your answer.
