Not trying to convince you of anything but,for the sake of intellectual interest,I'll tell you that there ARE some clear,biblical prophecies that came to pass.When I post 'clear',I refer to highly-specific,unequivocal forecasts for which even some atheist scholars agree on the doctrinal interpretation.As you may have read,the follow-up argument to that is that religious leaders re-wrote the Bible after the fact to make it look credible in relating fulfilled prophecy.....AFTER the 'original' biblical texts had been destroyed
