    So the Society is depending on the wisdom of economists and their calculus?

    Then the WTB&TS is doomed. They've made sure that most of their mind-numbed robots can barely balance their checkbooks, let alone understand the calculus.

    My wife told me at the dc last weekend that the speaker stated the following:

    1. Because the end has not came yet that the original generation explaination was wrong.

    2. With further study and investigation, the gb realized that the generation explaination must mean an overlapping of ones who saw 1914 with those seeing Armageddon.

    2. Many have the wrong idea that the end is still a long way off because of the new generation explaination.

    3. The end will not be more than 30 years away.

    I am so glad that no more than 30 years is not a long way off.

    Its crazy the back and forth with the generation thing, they will grasp at anything to keep 1914...

    This is such an excellent chart to keep on hand.....

    Truly I say to YOU that this generation - S = b u0(c10) + åt=1¥ [ut(ctt) + b ut(ct+1t)] - will by no means pass away until all these things occur.

    This always how I understood it!
    Elder Schmelder You always make things so easy to understand. Thanks!

    I can see why you are an Elder. (sarcasm intended)

    Well, the last 30 sure did fly the hell by.

    Thanks Schmelder!

    After plugging in the appropriate numbers for the initial value t=1914, I calculate that we can expect Armageddon to arrive in 1955.

    And aren't we all happified to look forward to the end of this old system to arrive so very soon now?

    Hope4Others, that's a GREAT chart!! I've seen it before but can't remember where...

    Where did you find it? "FreeMInds"????

    Anyway, thanks for posting that!!

    I think JWfacts has it on his site. I downloaded it to my computer for future printouts.

    I find it much easier to compare their new "a generation" to strings of Christmas lights. You start with your first string, and if it doesn't quite reach where you need it, you connect another. This is where the two strings intersect--the prongs in the plug have to extend into the socket of the preceding string. If you still run short, you attach another set of lights. And so on--for obvious reasons, I do not recommend doing this with anything but commercial quality LED lights because you will blow a fuse with anything else.

    Now, when the first generation falls short of where you need it, you simply connect another. Again, the generations intersect because the first one is right at the instant of death when the second in the string is just being born (like the prongs of one set connecting the socket in the preceding set). Since each "generation" ends with another socket and starts with a plug, this process can go on forever--as a bonus, there are no fuses to blow.
