    Is it ironic that JWs make fun of Harold Camping when they have their own failed prophecies? Especially since one of their dates (1994) was shared with Harold Camping. I wonder if the WT ever referenced Camping to say that non JWs noticed the import of 1994.

    Hmmm... seems the JW's have the most failed end-times prophecies of any of the others... and yet they claim to have had their finger on the pulse of world conditions... Oy.

    "hahaha, faulse prophets were exposed, hahaha"

    I really don't get the 1994 reference. I don't recall anything implying 1994 could be the big A

  • Morbidzbaby

    cantleave I was thinking the same thing. 1994 didn't seem all that significant to me...

  • Pig

    cantleave did it have anything to do 80 years after 1914? 80 years being one generation?

  • laverite

    Yeah, what's up with 1994? Can someone explain that one? Did I miss it?

    1994 was 80 years from 1914 so at one time it would have been the maximum period of time considered a generation.

    Of course, now we have the elastic generation...

    To be fair though, I don't remember the WBTS ever actually saying anything about 1994.

  • Morbidzbaby

    Pig I think you're right... I Bing'ed it and this is what I found:

    Some Witnesses interpreted Psalms 90:10 as defining the length of a generation to be 80 years. Since 1914 plus 80 equals 1994, they predicted Armageddon would occur around that year. This prediction came from the grass-roots level of the organization. The WTS itself did not officially proclaim it...

    So I guess this wasn't an actual WTBTS prophecy, just something that was circulated and again, failed. That's why we don't find written references to anything noteworthy happening in 1994.

    LOL @ "elastic generation"
