No it's not evidence.

RE: the bible
The Bible provides evidence of nothing.

It's a collection of poor storytelling and fear mongering used to control people who didn't/don't know any better.

RE: the bible
Nope.

Same book say's animals can talk, people can raise from the dead, and the world was covered in 8,850 meters of water.

The number of things it gets wrong greatly outnumber the things it gets right.

Same claims have been applied to Nostradamus. Dose this mean he had a window into the future? Or that he wrote things so vague that could be applied to anything.

It also said Tyre would be destroyed and never occupied again. When you make a lot of claims, some of them are bound to seem to come true.

Do you think it would be odd for the people to proclaim that their nation would be restored after they saw it overrun? How could you possibly show that whoever wrote that actually had foreknowledge and wasn't just engaging in wishful thinking?

RE: the bible
Besides which -- the State of Israel was put together by a bunch of Englishmen and Americans -- who had a vested religious interest in seeing the Israeli state created.....

It's like telling a bunch of kids where the candy is hidden -- then "predicting" that the candy will soon be gone....

"iseral" isn't a nation that I am aware of.

The Bible also said that false prophets would lead people astray in the last days. Please provide your credentials to prove that you are of the True Faith and not a false prophet.

RE: the bible
Well, if you are talking about Israel 1948 (like some Christians love to do)--that is not what the Bible is talking about. That is a modern invention by distorting biblical passages. The biblical passage you are referring to, is talking about the Babylonian captivity/exile of Jews by King Nebuchadnezzar II. In 538 BCE, the Jews were allowed to go back to their land via Cyrus the Great. This is what the passage (Isaiah 66) is referring to.

The biblical writers were writing about events that occurred in their own time and many "prophecies" were written during or after the fact.

Not when people specifically worked to make the prophecy happen. Making Israel a nation was in the works for decades prior to 1948.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
