countdown to darkness
If you want to experience the impact of an historic event, go and visit the next stark darkening, the eclipse in 2024. To be precise, ~1969 days away. The countdown also will take you, like an anti-daily text, through wt history as a retro prophecy a day for a year. ha ha.
1968-9, the year wt printed that it would be appropriate that the Millennium should start in 1975.
The jays did not think so. but you can count on it, the countdown ~ 1969 days to go. It will not be the end of the world, but look like it. True prophets exist, in science. You can count on it.
They went wrong because they thought Bible is dependable for prophecy. They were no different from Christendom who holds Bible sacred just because it was thought sacred in the past by their predecessors.
I saw the one last year in 2017, in Columbia, Missouri. It was a truly emotional event, I watched with a 'great crowd' of people gathered in a spirit of peace and shared joy in such an awesome spectacle. I can't wait until the next one!

Highly recommended. If you did not know better, you would have thought to be back in bible story times when miracles like talking snakes happened.
Cant wait to pass dte* 1942, 1925 (the princes appearing) 1918 (millions never dying talk), 1914 the world ending rapture.
*dte days to eclipse.
Bible sacred just because it was thought sacred in the past by their predecessors.
so true, I should have called the topic about the eclipse:
Countdown THROUGH darkness
A stab in the dark.
That's what someone does when they think they are revealing hidden secrets from the bible through their own predictions. This happened with the August 21, 2017 Solar eclipse. Someone put up a website saying the American 2017 solar eclipse was a special sign from god. The author of the website said the eclipse passed through seven(?) different towns named Salem across the entire United States. Some of those towns were pretty tiny. I couldn't find some of them on maps that they claimed was there. That guy or gal got a crowd following but the prophetic fad just faded...into the dark.

basically that what wt did since the 1870 ies. The eclipses though, see a crowd of people that trust science, have not been disappointed, except clouds coming in the way.
looking at the days left until the next one, is great to look at what new wt light really was. 1966 dte today.
Yes, the close match of the Moon and Sun apparent sizes could be an art, decoration, a non-biblical message from the creator. No other bodies in the solar system have that surface view apparent ratio.
7 Salems? pieces of peace? well, during the last eclipse, Trump was president and now he is a candidate for the Nobel peace price.
1966 - I guess this would be for Sunday 5/6 countdown day event.
1966 Fredrick Franz is quoted with saying the following statement.
"Does it mean that God's rest day began in 4026? It could have. The ... book does not say it did not ... You can accept it or reject it ... Does it mean that Armageddon is going to be finished ... by 1975? It could! It could! All things are possible with God. Does it mean that Babylon the Great is going to go down by 1975? It could ... But we are not saying."
This was F. Franz's uncertainty clause about the end happening in 1975. He was the vise president of the WT at the time. He should have said that there will be no talks allowed by anyone supporting that the end would come in 1975.
Psalms 146:3 - Do not put your trust in princes or in humans, to whom no salvation belongs.
I think the GB and FDS believe they are princes. Then Psalms 146:3 applies to them.
