Abstracts of all chapters of the study
"Belshazzar's banquet" in Daniel's book, chapter 5, is a propaganda story to strengthen Jewish faith (time of creation: 539–331 BC). This story has virtually nothing to do with the actual events. Its alleged author and Belshazzar's contemporary witness, the biblical Daniel, [...]
Who was Darius the Mede?
In contrast to the opinion of Jehovah's Witnesses, Daniel was not a contemporary witness at the court of Persian rulers. His historical knowledge is poor. For example, he confuses "Darius the Mede" (Darius I) with Cyrus II. Daniel's book, chapter 6, [...]
Chapters 3–6 in Daniel's book were already written in the period 539–331 BC. They are legends to strengthen the Jews' faith in Yahweh. Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel's book has little in common with the historical Nebuchadnezzar.

Contrary to the opinion of Jehovah's Witnesses, the origin-time of Daniel's book is mainly the 2nd century BC and Daniel from Ezekiel's book has nothing to do with Daniel the prophet, in Daniel's book.

Jehovah's Witnesses misinterpret Nebuchadnezzar's dream (Daniel's book, chapter 2) and Revelation 17:9-10.
God's kingdom is announced in the Bible for antiquity, not modern times. All opposite statements made by Jehovah's Witnesses are incorrect. For a heavenly kingdom, established in 1914, they don't provide any credible evidence.
The 7 Times
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that in 1914, a heavenly government was established by God. They derive this year from Daniel's book (4:16,32). However, such an interpretation of the "7 times" does not follow from the Bible. In addition, Jehovah's Witnesses falsify history [...]
