    I have the wt may 15 1994 scan with the birthdates & deaths of the 16 people featured, and it occured to me using wt logic,that you could extend the generation timespan this way.

    #6 D.D. was born in 1892 and died in 1984

    that was the earliest birth of this group

    #4 J.E was born in 1912 and died in 1997

    The age gap between these two is 20 years

    #6 D.D. was the first to die of this group in 1984

    #9 S.Y. was the last of this group to die in 2008

    The age gap here is 24 years

    Matt.1:17 identifies a generation as being 48 years in length

    Using the above information couldnt we split the 48 yrs in two, that is to say 24 yrs b4 1892 =1868 Then 24 yrs after 2008 =2032

    Therefore in this illustration the one generation could be from 1868--to ---2032 ( overlapping gen.mind you ) 164 years

    Am I an idiot,or am I a genius

    please be carefull how you reply,I can be very sensitive after a few beers

    P.S .

    I sincerely mean no disrespect to the people or their families identified in this magazine

    You're an idiot.

    Which means your figuring makes just enough sense that the Watchtower will probably adopt it!

    P.S. I sincerely mean no disrespect to Smiddy.

    I love it

    You made my day

    Love it. If one of the G.B thought of that they'd call it divine inspiration, proof of Jah's holy spirit guiding them.

    BTW: it's the May 15 1984 Watchtower. Just sayin'

  • karter

    Seems only you and them can understand it.

    Here 'tis again. Thanks to Fatfreek.

  • ambersun

    Smiddy, I think you are a genius and should get a job working for the WT writing team immediately!

    Keep an eye open for a forthcoming Watchtower containing Smiddy's 'New Light' in the very near future, folks

  • smiddy

    BTW : Of course it`s 1984

    I must have had a senior moment

    ambersun: LOL

    C`mon Karter get with it

    Transhuman 68 : thats a lot clearer than I have thanks to you & fatfreek

    The WT is already on record saying the 1914 generation will not pass away. As the Watchtower cover shows they are wrong on that prediction. Anyway I like your WT logic.
