It is really, in a way, not Dawkins’ fault. Those who truly lack foundational intelligence yet become articulate through monkey see monkey do activities down at the University are pathetic. Richard Dawkins The God Delusion. One wonders which monkey he imitates.
Look here, uh …, Dr. Dawkins, it’s The Richard Dawkins Delusion. Let me show you. Way back in 200 B.C. (BCE, if you like, its still Jesus who divides time) the Dead Sea Scrolls were placed in jars and buried in caves. Discovered in 1947 by a shepherd boy. The scrolls included Daniel, proving the modern texts are accurate in correlation. The reader may google The Dead Sea Scrolls in Wikapedia or Britannica.
So there is zero doubt all the words I will reveal here are his words allowing for the translations, because they are documented from Before Jesus.
Objective Evidence From Scripture
In Daniel 8: 3-8 we find “the end being told from the beginning and from ancient times what is still to come” as God boasts through Isaiah 46: 8-13.
Daniel 8: 3-8:
“I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. 4 I watched the ram as it charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against it, and none could rescue from its power. It did as it pleased and became great.
5 As I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat with a prominent horn between its eyes came from the west, crossing the whole earth without touching the ground. 6 It came toward the two-horned ram I had seen standing beside the canal and charged at it in great rage. 7 I saw it attack the ram furiously, striking the ram and shattering its two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against it; the goat knocked it to the ground and trampled on it, and none could rescue the ram from its power. 8 The goat became very great, but at the height of its power the large horn was broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the four winds of heaven.”
Now 8: 13, 14:
“Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, “How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled—the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, the surrender of the sanctuary and the trampling underfoot of the Lord’s people?”
14 He said to me, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.”
The angel, Gabriel, goes on to explain to Daniel that the vision begins with the King of Greece (rough goat) destroying Medo-Persia (the ram). Of course the skeptics hang their hats on this actually having been written after the events, but we know better and here’s why we know.
The first event in the vision of Daniel is Alexander the Great in his daring move crossing the River Granicus in 334 BC. Documented by Arrian and Plutarch. It is established extra-Biblical History.
Historical Fulfillment of Daniel In Our Day
So the 2300 evenings and mornings are anchored there in 334 BC and here is why we know this is true and why Jehovah sent the angel. Taking the evenings and mornings as the Passover celebrated by Jews from the Exodus until today and counting forward 2300 of them we find ourselves in 1967 A.D. (CE if you prefer) 2300 – 334 + 1 (there is no year zero so we add it) = 1967.
The year the Temple Mount was liberated by the Israeli Paratroops during their defense in the Six Day War on June 7, 1967.
To the pathetic, this is only the beginning. We have several more specific fulfillment(s) to go because Jehovah has boasted thus: Isaiah 46: 8-13:
“Remember this, keep it in mind,
take it to heart, you rebels.
9 Remember the former things, those of long ago;
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me.
10 I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.’
11 From the east I summon a bird of prey;
from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.
What I have said, that I will bring about;
what I have planned, that I will do.
12 Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted,
you who are now far from my righteousness.
13 I am bringing my righteousness near,
it is not far away;
and my salvation will not be delayed.
I will grant salvation to Zion,
my splendor to Israel.”
Daniel 12: 3, 4:
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”

Dr. Richard Dawkins is the one under the delusion here. Thank you for visiting my site. Thank you for reading. Please come again as I will be writing to provide more objective evidence which clearly prove God’s existence and authorship of the Bible through the 40 authors over 3500 years. We will leave no doubt. Please if you have any questions or comments leave them here below. I will answer. Chris. 6/7/2020. Oh look the anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem the undivided capitol of Israel.
