    There is noo lite on page 19 of the June 15/12 watchtower.

    From the perspective of Bible prophecy, then,

    the seventh world power did not become established

    in the late 1700’swhen Britain first began

    its rise to prominence. Rather, it attained that

    position at the beginning of the Lord’s day.

    This explanation updates the information discussed on

    page 57, paragraph 24, of the Daniel’s Prophecy book and depicted

    in the charts on pages 56 and 139.

    When the f**k is the "beginning of the Lord's day"? October 2, 1914? ... notice how they no longer get specific on dates...

    "Britain, a former part of the Roman Empire, began rising to prominence in the late 1700's." - p.19

    'Began rising to prominence in the late 1700s'???

    First British Empire (1583-1783)

    Main article: English colonial empire

    In 1578, Queen Elizabeth I granted a patent to Humphrey Gilbert for discovery and overseas exploration. [17] That year, Gilbert sailed for the West Indies with the intention of engaging in piracy and establishing a colony in North America, but the expedition was aborted before it had crossed the Atlantic. [18] [19] In 1583 he embarked on a second attempt, on this occasion to the island of Newfoundland whose harbour he formally claimed for England, although no settlers were left behind. Gilbert did not survive the return journey to England, and was succeeded by his half-brother, Walter Raleigh, who was granted his own patent by Elizabeth in 1584. Later that year, Raleigh founded the colony of Roanoke on the coast of present-day North Carolina, but lack of supplies caused the colony to fail. [20]

    In 1603, King James VI of Scotland ascended to the English throne and in 1604 negotiated the Treaty of London, ending hostilities with Spain. Now at peace with its main rival, English attention shifted from preying on other nations' colonial infrastructure to the business of establishing its own overseas colonies. [21] The British Empire began to take shape during the early 17th century, with the English settlement of North America and the smaller islands of the Caribbean, and the establishment of private companies, most notably the English East India Company, to administer colonies and overseas trade. This period, until the loss of the Thirteen Colonies after the American War of Independence towards the end of the 18th century, has subsequently been referred to as the "First British Empire". [22]

    The early 17th century is, of course, the early 1600s.

    wha happened?

    History WT style. Just make it up as u go. Opps what was that? People can check facts easier? The Internet? Now people have access to information that proves we're making it up? Oh. Ban the internet.

    I thought by now the WT would end this prophecy nonsense

  • therevealer

    More new watchtower language. Instead of new light, the light getting brighter, etc., we now find "This explanation updates the information discussed" in whatever publication the previous bullshite was in. The problem is that, truth be told, that former information had updated info that was former to it which info had updated, and on and on ad nauseam.
