The list of Neo-Babylonian rulers that I posted is simply what has appeared in recent WT publications, Where some authorities have different figures then I use 'proposed' and a question mark to indicate that the data is problematic.
If the WT has established as you suggest, than why is it problematic?
ET chronology uses biblical and secular evidence to establish the beginning of Neb's reign in 624 and not 604 as you suggest, if the data has a gap this is because there are some problems with the secular data and not the date for Neb's reign.
Okay, then what is specifically established by the Society?
I agree with the Babylon book but I based these figure on the latest Insight volumes. If I was writing for a professional source I would have taken more time and checked everything but as this is an informal board and I wished to respond quickly so my list was submitted in haste but it gives a broad outline for the period.
If you agree with the Babylon Book then your contradicting your proposed list.
However, with all the time needed there still has been no response to my requests for an alternative chronology so perhaps you should begin to focus on an alternative if in fact yo believe that Neb reigned in 604.
Neil Ive asked you for a list. You gave me a "sorta list" with many options.
Nebs reign fits with 605 to 587, Eighteenth year(destruction) and "plug in" the Babylon book years given of reign for the rest of the kings and you wind up with 539BC. no problem.
But you want it with Neb starting at 624 and are unable to reach 539 with the Societys years of rule.
Which thus far has been un-answerable for you. Why do you think I keep asking for your list, maybe its unfair because I know you cannot produce one from the Societys literature.
If your going to give a list, give a list. Not some question mark or maybees or proposes.
PS: why would the Society quote A.K. Grayson and not quote his kings list?
