    Todays WT mentions the million man army. Against half a million israelite men. The logistics do not add up . Same for the exodus where you would have to walk 2 days s to poop.

    Must be the same math used for the countries budget. Move the decimal to where it is needed for effect

    Watchtower Math is always an Overrated pulled out of their ass number, where nothing makes any sense when you think about it. Just for the Wow effect. Just like the number of JW's they say 8 million but truth be told and the real numbers would be 2 million or less.

    The ancients embellished stories many times to empower their chosen worshiped gods or to themselves, the written words within the bible is evidence of just that fact.

    Real historical facts aren't used much in religions who set upon their own self supporting propaganda agenda.

    I like the fact that in 1055 years of scientific advancement, the Earth will have 4 corners again; according to the book of Revelation.

    to use the Obama slogan:

    WT suffers from Truth decay.

    "Bible Numbers" are really suspect, and should be viewed with deep suspicion. Notice the times the number 70 comes up ? Literary device, the writers loved that number, it bears no relation to historical fact.

    Multiples of 7 or 70 are used, 490 years for example, again, a literary device

    Of course the symbolic numbers have no meaning in reality, and the numbers for Israelites and others given in various situations are made up too, as is the whole History of the Jews in the Bible, with the exception of a bit of accuracy in the Book of Kings, but only some of it.
