Sorry, my friend, you are creating straw men.
My main contention was that the rise of the Roman empire was predicted.
The Roman Empire did not seize control of Syro-Palestine until 63 B.C.
You're making this up now, aren't you?
You know that I'm not making it up.
If you don't like my sources, then say so, but don't accuse me of invention.
Your whole demeanor, on this thread, has been condescending. There really is no call for that. You are very naughty.
You have taken one theory regarding the date of the book's authoring and proposed it as fact. The main argument for this theory is that the comments in Daniel are too precise.
The truth is that there are many theories, dating all the way back to the 6th Cent. B.C., some of which seem to gain additional support in the light of the carbon dating of the Dead Sea Scrolls (placing a copy of Daniel in Qumran around 160 B.C.).
Now bottoms up, there's drinking time aspoiling
