Slidin Fast made a great post yesterday about the elephant in the room, the fact that the WT teaches millions of innocent six and seven year olds are doomed to die if their version of Armageddon comes about.
That coupled with a brief, stupid conversation with my JW father this morning where he asserted "We really need Jehovah's Kingdom" in response to the shooting led me to investigate how many six and seven year olds would be killed at Armageddon.
According to census.gov there are about 243 MILLION six and seven year olds alive in the world. All of them doomed to die, according to WT theology. (Well, lets give them 1 million JW kids, even though that probably covers all JW kids, not just 6-7 year olds)
Some numbers to chew on.....
242 million vs 20 kids killed at Sandy Hook. Armageddon genocide would be 12 million times worse for six and seven year olds.
The largest football stadium in the US is the "Big House" located at the University of Michigan. It holds 110,000 people on game day.
If the Watchtower Armageddon were to happen, this stadium would have to be filled 2,200 times to capacity with children six and seven years old, and then systematically slaughtered.
