  1. I said: And you said: I'm saying that there is no proof of your claim that "this date is doctored to be in line with Egyptian chronology." The dates for all the kings of Neo-Babylonian period are set in stone, and all of them are evidenced equally. The evidence for Cyrus is no better than that of Nebuchadnezzar. If you claim one is doctored, then you are claiming that they all are doctored. But we have no evidence that any of them are doctored. (Some persons here will know that when it comes to the sheer number of pieces of evidence, and even a couple of additional types o

  2. Some archeologists acknowledge these 'adjustments' to get one nice uniform picture of history. (I call it doctoring because Champollion paired the wrong king of the bible with the wrong Egyptian king - and started a chronology of error. This battle in Egyptology is common knowledge because it affects the dates of all the other nations who had dealings with Egypt - especially battles! There is a massive debate in Egyptology because they have found much evidence of the Israelites in Avaris at a much earlier date. More than 300 years difference to their early time lines and then the clos

  3. I had to start somewhere. As I said, feel free to correct and clarify. Perhaps you think that the best way to explain yourself is to play a game that gives a tiny piece of a puzzle at a time. But I, for one, welcome a full explanation in clear language. Yes, we can agree that these two types of producing chronology records are important. This is why I thought it was important to explain the Saros Cycle a couple of times previously on the forum (the older jw-archive forum in 2015). It's been a few years, so perhaps you understand them better than Allen Smith ever did, even after

  4. Saying that this date is doctored to be in line with the Egyptian chronology is exactly the same thing as saying that the date of Cyrus' death has been doctored to be in line with the Egyptian chronology. I don't think you realize that all the Neo-Babylonian dates are completely interconnected. No one can really say they know the date of Cyrus' death without also knowing the dates of Nebuchadnezzar's reign. It's the entire period that is known. If you could say that they DON'T really know Nebuchadnezzar's reign, then you CAN'T put the date "530 BCE" on Cyrus' death. The reason it is re

  5. I added the emphasis to the quote above. I know exactly what you are saying, and it's exactly the same thing that Allen Smith started to say in 2016 and said a little more clearly in 2018. Let me try to put it in different words, because I still don't believe it's clear enough. If I get part of it wrong please tell me. Allen Smith took a stance that was a bit different from Furuli (and also from scholarW on this forum). I think it was out of respect for the explanations in the Watchtower, that Allen and Cesar are not saying it as clearly as it could be stated, because it is also different
