  1. These articles are excellent! You could publish them as a book.
    Thanks very much for your effort. I hope many searching JWs will find it.

    • You’re welcome Rosalie.
      It would be nice if more people would leave responses, whether it’s to say thanks, to point out errors, or to ask questions.

  2. Hi
    I’m an x-jw and live in Denmark.
    I would like to thank you for these wonderfull articles.
    I use them a lot when I debate with my JW-famely.
    Wish you would make more.


    • I might be able to write other pages, but I don’t always have a lot of time to do so.
      Is there a particular aspect you would like more information about?

  3. Thanks for your hard work and research. I was a JW my entire life [49 yrs] and recently ‘enlightened’ to TTATT. I read their two 2011 articles and couldn’t believe them. In the footnotes they actually admit that the 587 is the correct one, but ‘However’ then they go on to plant doubts in peoples mind and still contend that they are correct with staying with 607bce. Unbelievable. Keep the faith and keep up the good work.

    • Maureen G…

      I thought about simply rejecting your trite insult, but I decided to approve it, just so people can see what a truly deplorable individual you are.

      Whether I’m wiser than your purported deity is entirely irrelevant, but I’m certainly wiser—or at the very least, a great deal more honest—than the old men who run your preferred publishing company. Although, as a devout JW, you probably don’t understand the distinction.

      It’s particularly amusing that you were unable to identify any actual errors in the information I’ve provided, but instead you had to resort to a quite pathetic pseudo-‘threat’ about hypothetical birds in an imaginary scenario. I hope that, one day, you come to understand just how stupid and belligerent you actually sound.

      If you notice any actual errors, feel free to identify them. Or if you have any legitimate questions, or you require clarification on certain points, feel free to ask. If you continue with any further hate speech, your comments will simply be deleted.

      P.S. I see that Maureen’s despicable comment is derived from page 7 of the 15 February 2014 issue of The Watchtower. It seems Maureen can’t even be original.

  4. Oh man! This is voluminous!! I feel really full right now and I’m surely gonna need a long nap after a cold shower…….. Lol. Please ignore my stupid self. I’m actually saying that you are really endowed with God’s blessings (hopefully you still believe in Him though) and I must drop my hat and bow to your great research.

    I see, 1914 as a complete pain-in-the-back for JWs, but of course, what do you expect from individuals who sold (or practically, threw) all their properties in expectation of a new system of things and the arrival of saints into Beth Sarim?

    For one, 2 hat-tips to Rutherford. What a smart dude he was!! He obviously scammed those poor-deluded fellas. I wish I could get a Mansion that quick, maybe I show start up my own organization, what do you think?

    ROFL!! That’s a hell-to-the-yeah multi-million dollar business!!!

    • Thanks for your comment, Christopher.
      Whilst I see no evidence on which to base any belief in ‘Him’, the fact is that JW beliefs about 607 contradict the Bible and are wrong irrespective of whether there is a god or not.
      Rutherford was a master manipulater to get his summer home. I suppose you could try to do the same, but could you really stomach it?

  5. Of course I could! Have you read a book by a JW (now deceased, perhaps) which talks of a letter sent to Rutherford complaining that while he sent them from door-to-door, he went from “drink” to “drink” and if they were to stop, they’ll get destroyed!

    Of course I could do that too.

    Imagine how much money I’d make if I got myself to type “Armageddon Is Upon Us” as a the title of a Watchtower Booklet and ordering my Faithful flock to sell all their properties and pay the money into my Bank account (to be disposed). I’ll be Arab-rich in two days. They’re that stupid!

    • I don’t know what book you’re referring to. I guess that means I haven’t read it. I’m familiar with anecdotes of Rutherford’s drinking habits though.
      Best of luck starting your own cult. It only has to be slightly less ridiculous than all the other ones and you’ll have it made.😛

  6. Have you noticed? The Watchtower has lately stopped talking about the 607 B. C. E. unlike those times they seemed to be “on fire”. I guess they must have visited this blog LOL. I like to be friends with you on Facebook, please could you add me on [removed] it’s an honour speaking with you. However, please ignore Maureen G’s insult, don’t let it bother you. It’s what they do when exposed. Stay blessed🙂

    • I wouldn’t agree that they have ‘stopped talking about 607’. Whilst they made special (but altogether unconvincing) efforts to ‘defend’ 607 in 2011 and 2012, most years prior also did not give much attention to the issue. It therefore seems more like the 2011 and 2012 articles were the exception, rather than the subsequent decrease, which is really a return to business as usual.
      I only add people on Facebook who I know personally.
      I don’t want to ignore Maureen’s insult – it was hilarious.🙂

  7. [Edited for brevity]
    [Lars claimed that I have been inconsistent with Josephus’ reckoning of the reigns of Neriglissar and Evil-Merodach (Amel-Marduk). I have in fact treated both in the same manner, as indicated in the charts accompanying my review of the article in The Watchtower of October 2011 and page 14 of the Timeline. Lars went on to speculate that there is a large amount of time missing from Neo-Babylonian chronology, based on his own inconsistent interpretation of Josephus’ reckoning of the two reigns and other elements he made up.]

    • Lars, your efforts to use my site as a platform for your own quite bizarre theories are not welcome. In the unlikely event that your ‘unique’ views of biblical chronology—intended to support your delusion that you are ‘the Messiah’—gain any popularity beyond yourself, I might write a page debunking those in detail. For the time being, I see no reason to draw any further attention to them.

      • .. and you have done it greatly! Thanks for the long and detailed article, It has helped me a lot to “understand” the flawed reasoning and twisting of those accounts by the borg. Eventhough the bible rejects the idea of an “insivible” “presence” and therefore all this 607 bs it’s still interesting to see how these tactics to deceive people are used to that extent by the borg.

        Greetings from a fellow atheist in middle Europe

  8. I would just like to say a huge thank you for taking the time to cover this material.

    I am recently out of the bOrganisation but I have admittedly had moments of doubt concerning counter arguments. This site has thoroughly put an end to those doubts and likewise given me the ammunition to counter the arguments from still-ins on my reasons for drawing away.

    Sincerely, thank you for your effort.

    • You’re welcome. I’m glad the information has helped you and I hope it will help you to assist others too.🙂

  9. Hi there Jeffro!!

    I hope it’s ok, but I thought I would contact you to share the news of our new, home-grown, very small blog:

    The site is quite self-explanatory; we aim to reach out to others who are suffering after leaving a high control group or sect and offer online friendship, without receiving donations or charging anything to anyone of course. We are just interested in encouraging people who are in the same situation as us.

    Please feel free to publicise the site or to share it with those you think it would benefit.

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi. Many people who leave Jehovah’s Witnesses certainly need support, and sites such as yours can be a stepping stone to wean themselves away from the fear-based thinking that such groups impose, while maintaining a sense of community that is stripped away by the JW’s harmful shunning practices.

      Ultimately, I hope people come to realise that faith as portrayed in holy books amounts to believing things without evidence, and is a poor substitute for employing criticial thinking skills to make a rational assessment of beliefs.
