I have pointed out on this forum that there are chronologies available toafay but not one from apostates or WT critics.
Not sure what logic is employed here - as most Chronologies will have been produced by those who are not - and do not support - Jehovah's Witnesses then the absence of an "apostate" chronology - or one labelled "apostate" is fatuous
From memory I recall Scholar that you have made much in the past of "peer review" when you have criticised the writings of Jonsson - do you apply the same rule rigidly to the NWT (and other publications since from the WT) becasue to be even handed and fair you should hold to one rule for all - not selectively removing the WT writers from any "peer reviews" because of anonymity.
The study of chronology is complex and there is no uniformity within scholarship on this subject but the WT Society fro its earliest history has provided a coherent presentation of the biblical data with the secular data. In other words we have always had a chronology that establishes prophecy and buils faith in God's Word.
"We have always had a chronology..." .How True - leading to 1914, 1925 and 1975 to name but a few of the fatal failures of this chrinology.
Our chronology is based upon Absolute or pivotal dates and is not conjured out of thin air as you imply
Absolute Dates...now there's a phrase I can't remember seeing in WT print for many years - think that little phrase was dropped by the WT years ago.
Jehovah's Witnesses are interested in biblical scholarship as evidenced by the making of a translation which is the envy of scholars and proves that we are competent in producing works of serious scholarship.
Reviewing the recent publications from the WT one can only wonder at the lack of any serious content - when was the last book of serious scholarship - the Aid Book perhaps - but of course that was the work of Apostates!

Core writes - yes I also have the right to use designations of degrees and awards but dont use them as they prove nothing - your use of such shows that you are concerned with such worldly trifles - I am concerned with gaining back what I lost in serving the WT for decades amd making the most of my life - chronology - of your sort - has failed me - no Paradise, No New System, No Justice - just more loads and burdens from the "faithful slave" - and please dont even get started on the verse regarding those who mock the presence of the son of man etc - you and your leaders are blinded to the simple truth that every "tack" you make shows how flawed your chronology is - if it was from God would it have needed "tacking" regularly, I think not.
