Why do atheists claim that Daniel is a forgery?

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

Well, I'd love for you to comment on one thing you actually know something about... We don't always get what we want, I guess.

What does any of that have to do with the book of Daniel, Ms. Off-Topic?

"and why is adam eve never shown as being black?"


You realize that the Bible isn't illustrated, right?

But thank you for your bizarre comic relief, anyway. We can always count on you for that.

So Daniel is basically a forgery?

Fact # 1 from Daniel....

Daniel 11 - 2

The Kings of the South and the North

2 “Now then, I tell you the truth: Three more kings will arise in Persia, and then a fourth, who will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece.

Persian King Xerxes was the fourth King of Persian and he along with the Persian Army and navy invaded Greece in approx. 480 BC

Here's the thing - just because those who wrote the bible included a few stories of real people who lived in the time frame of the stories does not make anything about religion true.
No one has ever argued that history is real.

Not only is the entire bible a forgery, it is a plagiarized forgery. Not only that, but there are as many interpretations of the various passages as there are people. Couple all that with mis-translations, omitted and changed passages and political shenanigans by various popes and kings and you have a book that doesn't even resemble the original plagiarized forgery. There are probably a million books out there with far more spiritually accurate and useful information, I really don't understand the fixation with this silly book.
Trying to get spiritual nourishment from a two thousand year old book is like trying to suck milk from the breast of a woman who has been dead that long.

Atheists tend to say that the bible is false because there are no other sources that collaborate the stories, but you are saying the opposite, in that the Bible is false because there are stories that match the biblical ones, but they were written earlier than the Bible, so therefore, it was a plagiarized forgery. With respect to the book of Daniel, what was it plagiarized from?

:1422: You are so wrong. You said that the ENTIRE Bible is a forgery.

I just showed you one verse that is true.

So you should change your comment....
