Since there is renewed interest in the 1975 fiasco and one of it's main promoters, I discovered something interesting.
In the above thread Blondie posted an except from an Awake! magazine article on old Chuck S. In it, he stated he was born one year after his parents married in 1935, viz. 1936. The Awake! footnote in that same article mentioned that he died in 1996 at age 92!
Now I am quite aware that the Watchtower Propaganda Corporation is HORRIBLE at math (see 1874, 1878, 1914, 1915, 1918, 1919, 1925, 1939, 1975 for examples), but a quick check tells me that if Chuck was born in 1936 and died in 1996 he was only 60 when he died, not 92.
Since the Awake! article itself gives the year of his birth, the year of his death and his age at death, why did they say he was 92 when he died?
Did I miss something, or is the spirit of Jehovah not directing the GB in 4th grade math?
