Since The Prophetic Failure Of 1975..

    According to Smart Money magazine, the average life expectancy in 1975 was 72.6 years (US)

    In 2011, it is 78.2 (Oct issue, page 58 - unlike the deceptive Awake, I give proper references)

    Pretty good for a 'dying system", huh?

    Also, Communism collapsed since then - without a nuclear war - and so far, without a single warhead getting loose (they have a shelf life, folks)

    Meanwhile, the Watchtower keeps preaching its "Bernie Madoff" theology: Armageddon is "Soon" and Give Us Your Money.

    After 130 years of this scam, you'd think everyone would catch on...

    Never underestimate what large numbers of stupid people are able to achieve in perpetuating such a scam.

    36 years ago we were all heading for our bunks in the bunker! Bunk is still the Watchtower's operative word.

    Well, I was a stupid!

    I was born into the cancerous lie and believed what I was told like a good little boy! Thanks to Satan's internet I'm free!

    I've also seen a slowing down in those being craptized from double figures to 5 max at nonventions. I'd say 4 out of 5 were also born ins, possibly doing it to please their parents or make themselves elligible for marriage as they need sex!!

    Stay alive in '75..............this'll be the new 'appeal to fear' and false prophecy closer to 2075!

    The sixties were a time of great changes, and for a few old men in Brooklyn it must have been scary, and maybe it really did look like the world would end. We can look back and laugh at them now; the world is in better shape than the GB could have imagined in their wildest dreams.

    Oh you skeptics, don't you know every day is day closer to the end?

  • punkofnice

    cantleave - AHAH! The end of what though? I ask twiddling my long waxed mustache!!!!

    Most of us wanted the end to come in 1975.

    For many of us it screwed up our lives when it didn't come.

    We didn't stop believing because we wanted to live a debauched life. We stopped believing because it all became "unbelievable".

    Now its time to get what ever debauchery you can get in your senior years.
