I'm not sure if this was posted before, but I found the following quote from the WTS media website. I thought the whole article was really ironic.
Jehovah's Witnesses firmly believe that God will accomplish his purposes for the future at his own predetermined time, on a day and hour that he has not revealed to humans. (Habakkuk 2:3; 2 Peter 3:9, 10) And they believe that these events will take place in the not-too-distant future. (2 Timothy 3:1-5) However, they do not speculate on the significance of the year 2000. There is no evidence whatsoever that either the year 2000, the year 2001, or any other date set by humans has anything to do with God's timetable.
I am amazed at the message they are now giving... Oh well, at least they are learning!

Any other WTS quotes out there we should read???
