Greetings. There is a very large volume of material on this issue which demonstrate "Daniel" was written by an unknown author some 500 years after the events written about. For a copy of this material you may ask Farrell Till ( for a few back-issues of "The Skeptical Review." He might ask you for three our four dollars to cover copying expenses. The May/June 1998 issue is informative, as is the July/August 1998 issue, on the subject. If Mister Till does not have back-issues, ask me and I'll mail it (USPS) to you if you send a USPS address.

You might also wish to review:

Basically, the authors of "Daniel" did not know the history of the area they were writing about for the time period being written about.

One good book for information on the subject is the book by S.R. Driver, D.D. (Doctor of Divinity) called "The Book of Daniel," Cambridge University Press.
