Words Beyond TimeSpace?
Gabriel's Words to Daniel
Calculations based on Evidence
Naturalism or Supernaturalism
We are searching for words from outside timespace. We have solid evidence since the Dead Sea Scrolls predate Daniel's prophecies of Christian faith. Also, it is important to note that I have used the worst case date for the book of Daniel (written in 165 BCE).
The 165 BCE date is preferred by modern scholars, who are best described as Naturalists. (Naturalists do not accept prophecy {foretelling future events} since it is considered to be supernatural: as opposed to natural).
Below is a summary of the six prophecies from Daniel. You can click on any number in the far left column if you want to return to the page to review it. After the summary, I will make conclusions using a mathematical tool.

We have six prophecies that were fulfilled 195 to 235 years after the original date of 165 BCE (well after the time the author died). Since we have six credible data points, we can use math to come to unbiased conclusions (using a statistical tool called the Chisquare test for Independence). To use this approach requires a well stated viewpoint (hypothesis). Then the data can be analyzed based on that viewpoint.
Naturalists do not expect prophecy to be possible. However, I have chosen to look at this real life question from the Naturalists viewpoint. We simply state that "Prophecy in the book of Daniel is not possible." Having made that statement as our viewpoint (hypothesis), some calculations are done. This will tell us whether we should have confidence that the Naturalist viewpoint is true or false.
For our purposes of using the Chisquare tool, we only need to determine whether an event is true or false. The table above summarizes the data and shows that we have six credible prophecies. Each event counts as one unit.
For those wanting to review the math, the calculations are done in the popup window to the right. Or you can move forward and read about the conclusions below (based on math).


Conclusions
The purpose of using the mathematical approach is to find out if the hypothesis is true or false. We conclude that "Prophecy in the book of Daniel is not possible" is FALSE at the 98.5% confidence level. There are only fourteen chances in a 1,000 that this conclusion is due to random error. Therefore, the data supports that Daniel appears to have received words from outside timespace.
The opposite viewpoint is that "Daniel's Prophecies come from outside timespace." This viewpoint was found to be TRUE.
The conclusions support that we must question the "late date" of 165 BCE favored by modern scholars (Naturalists) for authorship of Daniel. The 165 BCE date appears to be based on the unproved theory of Naturalism.
Just as important, the views of Naturalism should take into account that the universe appears to have been created and that it is dying. These modern scientific views of the universe reveal there is more to the universe than meets the eye.
At this time, you can chose between two paths. Either follow the evidence brought forward by conservative scholars for dating the book of Daniel or prepare to find out if Jesus, the Messiah foretold by Daniel, could foretell future events. (If you choose dating the book of Daniel, the path will lead back to the Jesus files.).
