Now, I know that the 2012 issue has been blown out of proportion. And I know all the reasons that believing in them are wrong. But has anyone else noticed a growth in this type of conversation? In the last few weeks I've heard several JWs speaking of it as a viable date for the end. It's always presented as a "what if", but it's still being talked about. A couple of people I was in a conversation with brought the date up in connection with the oil spill and what some scientist said about it being a global catastrophy by the year 2012.
I was just wondering if anyone else has heard any mention of this date (or any other) for the end of the world. I know some people on the board have mentioned 2014. But have you heard any specific talk about dates from other Witnesses?
