Heres some Bible prophecies that have come true. In the book of DAniel, God gave Daniel several amazing visions. In one of them, Daniel saw a goat with one horn fight, and defeat a 2 horned Ram (Daniel 8: 1-9)
. God told Daniel the goat stood for Greece and the goats horn symbolized a great, Greek leader who would conquer the ram, The Medians and the Persians. And 220 years later Alexander the great did just that. Another one involving Alexander was this. God wanted to show Daniel how fast Alexander would conquer the known world. So, he gave him a vision of a 4 headed leopard with wings. The leopard was Greece. Leopards are fast, and with wings, even faster. The Leopard symbolized Alexander the great conquering the world in 10 years. And The 4 heads? After Alexander died, his Generals spilt up his Empire into 4 chunks. Heres another one. One night Daniel had a vision of a shaggy old bear with one side raised up on one side. It had 3 ribs between his teeth ( Daniel 7:5) The bear symbolized The great mountain kingdoms of. Media and Persia and since the Persians where stronger then the Medes, their side was raised up. And the 3 ribs? they symbolized the three great nations that the Medo-Persians had conquered. Lydia, Babylon. and Egypt. Daniel could not have possibily known these events without an all-knowing god telling them.

Uh, run this by me again. How does Daniel just magically know that a one-horned goat is Greece?

The obvious question to ask - do you have any reliable evidence as to when the Book of Daniel was written?  I'm talking about scholarly studies regarding this - not what people claim who talk about this during Bible studies.

The dating and authorship of Daniel has been a matter of great debate among Jews and Christians. The traditional view holds that the work was written by a prophet named Daniel who lived during the sixth century BC, whereas most modern Biblical scholars maintain that the book was written or redacted in the mid-second century BC and that most of the predictions of the book refer to events that had already occurred. A third viewpoint places the final editorial work in the fourth century BC.

Scholars have speculated about the bilingual literary structure of Daniel - Chapters 2 through 7 in Aramaic, the rest in Hebrew. One of the most frequent speculations is that the entire book (excepting 9:4-20) was originally written in Aramaic, with portions translated into Hebrew, possibly to increase acceptance (Hartman and Di Lella, 1990, p. 408) - many Aramaisms in the Hebrew text find proposed explanation by the hypothesis of an inexact initial translation into Hebrew.

According to John Collins in his 1993 commentary, Daniel, Hermennia Commentary, the Aramaic in Daniel is of a later form than that used in the Samaria correspondence, but slightly earlier than the form used in the Dead Sea Scrolls, meaning that the Aramaic chapters 2-6 may have been written earlier in the Hellenistic period than the rest of the book, with the vision in chapter 7 being the only Aramaic portion dating to the time of Antiochus. The Hebrew portion is, for all intents and purposes, identical to that found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, suggesting a second century BC date for the Hebrew chapters 1 and 8-12.

Contrary to the above, the Expositor's Bible Commentary (Zondervan, 1990) claims that the language of Daniel, in comparison with the Hebrew and Aramaic texts of the Hellenistic period, "prove quite conclusively to any scholar that the second-century date and Palestinian provenance of the Book of Daniel cannot be upheld any longer without violence being done to the science of linguistics". It adds that the serious mistakes of the Septuagint to render many Persian and Accadian terms, as the offices mentioned in Daniel 3:3, proves ignorance of words of the old past, already forgotten in the Hellenistic period, indicating that the Book of Daniel was written in the late 6th century B.C.E
