Amac: The number of "70" is an AVERAGE ... meaning that many are less and many are much more. The number of "70" comes from groups that study and track the issue of pedophilia. However, the number of "70" is the most CONSERVATIVE I have read to date, meaning it is the lowest number advanced by any study or any group. Conservative is a term used in mathematical studies to reduce the chance of error to its lowest possible number. If you re-read my posts above you will see the terms "average" and "conservative" used repeatedly. When I initially started this study, I was inclined to use the number 300 based on what an attorney uses in court from his expert witnesses. When I sat with this attorney he said that most people have no idea of how bad the problem is, and when I suggested 70 victims average, he corrected me to say over 300 minimum. I don't know ... I honestly don't.
But, that said, I used the lowest number of 70 to at least try and get a handle on the scope of the problem. The results in about 370,000 JW victims in the USA. Is the number half of that, or a quarter of that? Given the JW molesters I have know, the number of 70 victims is LOW. What ever the case, the JW religion is a Pedophile Paradise.
