I remember back around 1974 when everyone was expecting Armageddon to arrive at any minute, the 40 something father of my friend Eddy, raised his hand during the Watchtower study and said:
" I read an article the other day that said scientists are noticing lately there's been an unexplainable increase in the populations among birds of prey this past year. We know that this is happening because after Armageddon they will be needed to help clean up the bodies of all those who have been destroyed".
The Watchtower Study Conductor paused for a long time, sighed and then said reluctantly:
" Well that's just not true, so lets remember keep our comments based strictly on the material in the paragraph".
The Kingdom Hall seemed to go silent, you could have heard a pin drop. Up to that point, I had never heard anyone's answer being corrected. I stole a glance over to where he was sitting and his face was flushed and frozen and he was staring intently into his raised Watchtower to avoid looking at anyone. My friend Eddy and his brother were doing their best to stifle their laughter.
