I think all that idea of Charles T.Rusell is based on lies and occult practices and false predictions.Who will stick with men made doctrines will fall and history is fact.

Evidently(lol! WT saying!), Russell believed Christ had already returned invisibly, so 1874 marked, according to his pyramid calculations, the "beginning of the period of trouble."

I found this quote on "Yahoo Answers" page:

 Did (Jehovah's Witness) Charles Taze Russell Predicted Christ's Return In 1874?


  CT Russell wrote, "So, then, if we measure backward down the 'First Ascending Passage' to its junction with the 'Entrance Passage,' we shall have a fixed date to mark upon the downward passage. This measure is 1542 inches, and indicates the year BC 1542, as the date at that point. Then measuring down the 'Entrance Passage' from that point, to find the distance to the entrance of the 'Pit,' representing the great trouble and destruction with which this age is to close, when evil will be overthrown from power, we find it to be 3416 inches, symbolizing 3416 years from the above date, BC 1542. This calculation shows AD. 1874 as marking the beginning of the period of trouble; for 1542 years BC plus 1874 years AD. equals 3416 years. Thus the Pyramid witnesses that the close of 1874 was the chronological beginning of the time of trouble such as was not since there was a nation -- no, nor ever shall be afterward." (Studies In thr Scripture, Vol. 3, 1904 ed.)
