To the Editor:
For those who believe the Bible is 100 percent accurate, consider these musings from the failed prophet Daniel.
A) He claims to be writing in 586 B.C. However, most modern-day biblical scholars now put the accurate date between 167 and 165 B.C.
B) He falsely refers to Belshazzar as the son of Nebuchadnezzar. But archaeological evidence proves he was the son of Nabonidus.
C) And most pathetically incorrect of all, in verse 11:45, he predicted Antiochus IV would die in a location between the Mediterranean Sea and Jerusalem. But unfortunately, Antiochus IV very uncooperatively died hundreds of miles to the east of Jerusalem in Persia.
