If a day for a year is not applied then that means that the 7 times lasted from 607 to 600. Did a ruler of God's Kingdom come forth then? Logical reasoning will lead a person to believe that the day for a year rule must apply otherwise the prophecy is meaningless. We have as an example the seventy weeks prophecy of Daniel chapter 9. The day for a year rule must apply in Daniel chapter 9 or the prophecy is meaningless and is of no value.
For the moment ignoring the fact that you still have not proven 607 as a starting point, I have already demonstrated that the "day for a year" rule as applied to Daniel 4 was not applied to Daniel 9. To conserve your time in answering questions, I will try very hard to ask you only yes or no questions. Here's one: Are you aware that the word translated "weeks" in Daniel 9 literally means "weeks of years"? If so, then you know that fact renders your entire comparative argument false at best and sophistic at worst.
As we have already shown Daniel used the word for 7 times instead of 7 years. Therefore it must mean more than 7 years. Otherwise he would have said 7 years not 7 times. Do you think that Jehovah was trying to trick us by using the terminology of 7 times and then explaining the length of 3.5 times in Revelation only to merely mean that the 7 times that pass over are 7 years and that is all? AT the same time he supplied the rule ' a day for a year ' when Ezekiel laid on his side for so many days (which by the way pointed to the destruction of Jerusalem in 607). He also supplied the prophecy of the 70 weeks which also needs the rule of 'a day for a year' for it to have value. The 70 weeks from 455 brings us to 453.5. Nothing happened. So surely it must be a day for a year.
"Iddan" does not have to mean more than 7 years. It can mean less than 7 years with equal facility. It can mean "measure of time", or "season" and if you were aware of this possibility prior to posting this false statement then your statement was sophistic. Were you aware that "iddan" can be less than a year, thirdwitness? If so, then you already knew your statement that "it must mean more than 7 years" was false, since you already knew of another possibility.
With that said, is there any other reason to apply the day for a year rule to the dream? For a moment lets reason why God wanted us to know exactly how long 3 1/2 times are. In one place he calls it 42 months, in another place he calls it 1260 days. If it only meant 42 regular months then why be so specific about it. What difference does a few days here or there make? Why not just 3½ years or 42 lunar or solar months? The only time a few days does make a big difference is when you are dealing with a prophecy that has a day for a year rule applied. In this case every day makes a big difference. When you combine this with the fact that every prophecy of Daniel either concludes with Jesus arriving in God's Kingdom or with the arrival of the Messiah who is the King of God's Kingdom, then you have a pretty strong reason to apply the day for a year rule.
The Watchtower Society interpretation of the 42 months, "time, times, and half a time", and 1,260 days is specific and is taught as spanning 3.5 years from 1914 to 1918. By this interpretation 3.5 times does not equal 1,260 years, it equals 3.5 years. Doubling 1,260 years for application to Daniel 4 only makes sense if 3.5 times equals 1,260 years. Otherwise, it makes no sense at all to compare Revelation 12 to Daniel 4. For any purpose at all. If 7 times equals 2,520 years, then 3.5 times equals 1,260 years. If 3.5 times equals 1,260 days then 7 times equals 2,520 days. But for my part, I see no need to correlate the two verses as proof texts for each other.
You have already removed the basis for your erroneous application of Revelation 12 in your earlier answer. You stated you do not believe 3.5 times equals 1,260 years, your reasons for this disbelief are immaterial. After the current organization falls to pieces I expect big things from you, thirdwitness. You have the gift of seemingly rational argument that is as false as Phyllis Diller's eyelashes, the gift of sophistry. That gift made J.F. Rutherford and F.W. Franz very powerful within their circle of cultists.
