I dont think you can criticize any religion at all for reading the words of Jesus referring to a generation and then having opinion or conversation about the words chosen to say it. The WT didnt say generation, Jesus says it, and it can be taken many ways. So it doesnt make much sense to see a quibble as if those finding fault are worse than those who created the fault. BOTH sides turn out to be equally petty. And petty always is ruinous from either side's viewpoint or claims.
My preference is to the belief that Obama will announce an asteroid before 2014 because it will be 100 years, a generation easily for the firts 144,000 ever written in history, Peleg's generation who died in 2030bc and the cuneiform tablets says they numbered as 144,000 men (elders / kings), and then says after Sargon "Just who is king, And who is NOT king?". No one had the same definition. This is what proves that Reu was the first king not Nimrod because Peleg had put him over men who were older than himself. Nimrod telling Peleg what to do at Babel was justifiable on two counts; he was a year older than Peleg, and both Eber and his son Peleg lived in the city of Kish (belonging to Nimrod's father Cush). And it would seem that building the observatory (Babel) next to Kish was Nimrod telling Peleg what to do, not telling Eber what to do. or do you presume Eber told his son that you do not have to do what Nimrod tells you, go and leave, and go build your own city. (Ur) All evidence indicates though that although Peleg divided and dispersed from Babel bringing many with him, that it is UR that is THE CITY that dispersed around the world. The HYKSOS left Ur and joined the Hittites to enter Egypt to build Memphis the year Peleg died. The next year, the Chinese family under Reu (Yu The Great) left 1st dynasty UR's fall with Mayans after the shock of the 74-man suicide of 2029bc to go build Mari Syria until taken by Babylon's Hamurabi in 1762bc captive until 1625bc. The destruction of UR in 1900bc is the Hindu family migration to discover India. And those of that family who chose north to Babylon then made flight and pilgramage in 1625bc, bringing the formerly captive Chinese family and Mayan family with them. So THIS GENERATION that dispersed and divided and fled and received tribulation is not seen by the WATCHTOWER because their sources of truth are all from the evangelical Christendom, i would not expect them to understand nor see truth then, since i have it here, and they dont, because theirs is from Christendom. BUT i am confused over which Christendom they feel they are not a part of. The MAINSTREAM MOTHER of Catholcism and Protestants and Lutherans and Anglicans are all called mother whore in paganism, yet the daughter evangelical churches are the ones who many have quit holidays stating they are pagan and giving these sources to the WT to agree with them. How does the WT get truth from pagan Christendom's daughter who if mother church is whore, then let us ask is daughter whore washed clean? Rather let me point out that Noah died on Christmas 2021bc Dec 25, and Nimrod died on 1770bc April 22. So that 1770bc Dec 25 honors Noah not Nimrod. But that Nimrod born (100 after Noah's 40-day rapture of the ark as his baptismal death thru Flood 2370bc) in 2270bc who died at 500 in Year 600 (after Noah) Flood 2370-1770bc, is claimed in Assyrian and Greek chronologies to have died in Year 950 (Flood 2970-2021bc and Flood 2958-2009bc) so that he was born (those 100 years after Noah's rapture of death Year 350) in Year 450 to live 500 years to Year 950 which is still 600 after Noah (40-day rapture at death). Thus before Nimrod was claimed to have died the year of Marduk Street (2009bc), he was claimed to have died Dec 25 Christmas 2021bc which is Noah's memorial, not Nimrod's. This means WatchTowerdom has accepted the gossip of Christian churches in fabricating what was pagan and where it came from. Sad, very sad. Because they dont let go of the lies they've been shown for 30 years now. In 1985 they were told Xisuthros is not Noah, which is as important as proclaiming from the roofs that the witch of Endor did not speak to Samuel's ghost.
