Anyone who was anointed after the death of the last of the anointed ones in the first group—that is, after those who witnessed the “beginning of pangs of distress” in 1914—would not be part of “this generation.”Matt. 24:8.

No one can or should try to judge the claim of any specific individual. However the current teaching is only saying that if any persons claim to have become "of the anointed" after the first group died out, then the length of their life doesn't matter anyway in trying to determine the length (or makeup) of the generation. The point has nothing to do with whether their claim has any "merit." 

The first generation is assumed to have died out already, although who could say for sure if there was not a 120 year old brother or sister somewhere who was of the anointed at age 16?  If so, that first group has not died out yet, but will likely die out in the next year or so. If we assume that the last member of group one died on January 1, 2000 at 12:01 am EST, then it is quite possible that two brothers who were twins, born in say, 1980, could both be of the anointed. If one of the twins (let's say, the younger one) started professing to be of the anointed at three minutes before 12:01 am EST on January 1, 2000 then he would be part of the "generation" that would not pass away. If the other one (let's say, the older one) started professing to be of the anointed at three minutes after his twin brother, then he would not be part of that generation.

So it's even very possible for a younger person to be a part of the generation where his older brother is not part of it.

Hope that makes sense.

Knock knock knockin' on heaven's door........

It is aways interesting (for me) to look at the partakers graph against the average publishers graph as shown here. (They will be included in these figures).

I mean, why shouldn't this number increase? I know we have put date limiters on it in the past, but surely we have become less rigid about this in more recent years? (@Melinda Mills could substantiate this with numerous WT references!)

Anointed ones answer only to Jehovah as to the genuineness of their claim (1Cor 11:27-29).

We are rejoicing at the increase, if we show the same spirit that the angels do when sinners repent:

Luke 15:10:  "I tell you, joy arises among the angels of God over one sinner who repents"

    • I'm having trouble locating the other post regarding discrepancies. I'm going to share this discrepancy here. Perhaps I didn't search thoroughly enough. Did you mean to say that there is no clear indication of how a celestial observer or scribe could be defined according to Francesca Rochberg as an astrologer? I'm curious if they did require assistance from mathematicians then. What would happen if a scribe was illiterate and not an astrologer, but a record needed to be made because no astrologer was available to record an urgent event? "The title “t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlil,” although easily yet only literally translated as “scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil,” is difficult to define. The common translation, “astrologer,” by focusing on only one aspect of the En¯uma Anu Enlil scribe’s activities, conveys an inadequate and one-sided picture. No one-word English translation of t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlil adequately defines the field of expertise of the En¯uma Anu Enlil scribe without implying an anachronistically sharp distinction between astrologer and astronomer, and an implied distinction between pseudoscientist and scientist." This observation was not limited to Mesopotamian scribal scholarship in general, but also extended to a similar concern for Babylonian culture. "Textual sources from which one can piece together the range of responsibilities and expertise of a scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil are fortunately not limited to those on which the title appears, as these are surprisingly rare. In the Neo-Assyrian period, the available texts include one letter mentioning the “reports of the t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlils,”37 one Babylonian report in which the writer ˇSum¯aia is the “scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil from the new team,”38 and one administrative document listing the employees of the court in which seven t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlils head the list, two of whom are well known from the court correspondence and the astrological reports, that is, Iˇstar-ˇsuma-¯ereˇs and Balasˆı." How do modern scholars make adjustments if they have no way of knowing the mental state of the ancient scribes? They must grapple with the uncertainty of the formulas used or not used. It seems that a great deal of interpretation is based on conjecture, leading to disagreements among scholars. This uncertainty certainly impacts certain areas of scholarly interpretation. It seems that they took their records seriously, but can we truly rely on them if we consider that the scribe may not have been a scholar?
    • I can't believe it! You actually sent me a staggering six reference books and an impressive dozen articles. I'm not a fast reader, haha!  
    • Have you examined the writings of Francesca Rochberg? This person adds a unique perspective to the works of Hunger, Sachs, and Steele. It is truly enlightening to observe Ptolemy's fascination with that particular era in Tetr. 2.3. It's fascinating how they still refer to Piches and Johannes' works, especially with additional information and further footnotes. 
    • I think we can take Geo Jackson’s words as a template. ‘You don’t want to take sides,’ he says, and to show the challenge of keeping neutral, he uses the example of contesting politicians in Australia, one of whom wanted to draft people of Jackson’s age into the military and one of whom did not. Now that would test your resolve to stay neutral, he said, nonetheless you must do it. If he was as ignorant of politics as some seem to think is the gold standard, he would not have even known which politician’s views would be to his benefit and which one would not. Of course, I leaned into him on this point, informing him that: I’m sure he gave my words all the consideration they deserved before instantly turning his attention to other matters.
    • Then stop using AI Tools, since it's clear you have none, at least not where it counts. Now to please your kind of friends, I can see it.
