    1914 in its original form was better structured. It had the appearance of a secret code that had been cracked. However, today's 'overlapping generations' is totally incomprehensible.

    2 Peter 3:9nJehovah is not slow in respect to his promise, as some people consider slowness. But, he is being patient with you because he does not desire for anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to attain repentance .

    The belief (and false rationalization) that the end of the system of things hasn't arrived yet because Jehovah wants everyone to repent first. The trouble is, the longer he waits, the more new people are born into sin with the potential of not repenting, yet they continue to proclaim, decade upon decade, that we are living in the end of "this system".

    Yeah, that's a good choice, since the JWs have been around about the same time as the lightbulb and other religions go back "just a tad" further than that, yet they are the chosen ones.

    But I think just about all their beliefs are bat shit crazy, can't say God bless after someone sneezes? Really??

    The overlap generation explanation has got to be at the top, or near the top, of the list.

    No one can celebrate their own birthday, or Honor their mother or father on the date most people use, Thanksgiving is pagan, etc...

    Connecting unrelated scriptures and adjusting history and still having to count years as being "360 days" in order to make 1914 fit their doctrinal calendar.

    Saying that 1975 didn't bring the end of the world because we don't know how many years Adam was alone before Eve was created to end the "6th Creative Day" and mark the beginning of the 7th day, which is 7000 years long. So Satan knows when that is.

    Anointed are a literal 144,000 while most of the rest of that area of Revelations is symbolic, creating the need for the "other sheep."

    Overlapping Generation. Hands down- This is the winner.
