I've been saying this for a while now, and I see some other posters are now as well. Who really gives a crap about this useless nonsense? About dates from 100 years ago, (or thousands, such as 587, 539, etc). How does that affect modern man today? It doesn't. It's completely irrelevant. It's mental mind-games and busywork being turned out by manipulative CULT. This is where mainstream Christianity overwhelms the WT Borg. Christendom doesn't keep harping on this old crap, they focus on things from the Bible, and Jesus' words that can actually help you in your day-to-day life, every day. Like doing onto others, showing forgiveness, showing love, not being judgmental, etc. These day-to-day concepts from Jesus are completely lost on the JW Pharisees. Charity? What's that? No one in JW-Land has a CLUE. I was raised in this mess, and I know I sure didn't. WT Borg is beating a dead horse, and the younger "generation", doesn't give one flying fart, they are leaving in droves, and taking their wallets with them!!!
