I'm going to stick my neck out here and announce that I'm writing a novel based on my experience in the borg.
Tonight, as part of my reseach, I looked up "chronology" in two sources:The Zondervan Pictoral Encyclopedia of the Bible, and The Aid to Bible Understanding. Zondervan is a five volume work (vol 1 is 1056 pages) the Aid book is 1694 pages. On this subject Zondervan spends 29 1/2 pages of (interesting) discussion that boils down to "nobody actually knows-here are x number of best guesses." The Aid book spend 27 pages (including some detailed time lines) laying out an exact chronology of the bible.
The most notable contrast is that the Aid book contains no foot notes. Zondervan notes its sources in great detail.
The thing that I find interesting is that now that I'm thirteen years out of the borg, I'm more comfortable with "nobody knows" than I am with "here is exactly how it happened." I think that the WTBS's need to have to supply an answer to every possible question is a big piece of what gets them in trouble.
PS: Since I brought up my book, what do you think it would take to get the borg to go "branch Dividian". post here or email me at [email protected]. Comments used will get attribution if/when I get published.
