Jehovah Packed His Things And Moved In 1953?

Yes, the Watchtower Society used to actively teach its disciples that Jehovah God resided in the center of the universe on the star called Alcyone in the Pleiades star cluster. They began teaching this in 1881 when the Great Pyramid pointed it out to them. Then they dropped this teaching in 1953. Was it because Jehovah packed up His stuff and moved His throne to Brooklyn Bethel?

Don't believe me? Here is a scan of one of their publications stating the exact location of Jehovah.

I will be researching why they quit believing this and report back when I hear something concrete that I can prove with facts.

Here's the 'Questions From Readers' segment that ends the belief that God lives with the seven sisters...

*** w53 11/15 p. 703 Questions From Readers ***

● What is meant by ‘binding the sweet influences of the Pleiades’ or ‘loosing the bands of Orion’ or ‘bringing forth Mazzaroth in his seasons’ or ‘guiding Arcturus with his sons,’ as mentioned at Job 38:31, 32?—W. S., New York.

Some attribute striking qualities to these constellations or star groups and on the basis of such they then offer private interpretations of Job 38:31, 32 that amaze their hearers. Their views are not always sound from the standpoint of astronomy, and when viewed Scripturally they are completely without foundation. Why? Because we do not know which stars or groups of stars are being referred to in these verses. The names Pleiades, Orion and Arcturus are not the names given in the Bible. Some translations make Mazzaroth refer to the signs of the Zodiac. English translators have merely adopted these pagan names given to constellations or star groups and have inserted them in their translations in the place of the original names that appear in the Hebrew Scriptures, namely, Kimah, Kesil, Mazzaroth and ‘Ayish. To just what stars or star groups these names refer we do not know today. Hence it is useless to indulge in unprofitable speculations. Incidentally, Pleiades can no longer be considered the center of the universe and it would be unwise for us to try to fix God’s throne as being at a particular spot in the universe. Were we to think of the Pleiades as his throne we might improperly view with special veneration that cluster of stars.—Deut. 4:19; 2 Chron. 2:6; 6:18.
