I know you've only been here a short time - and already proven yourself to be a ranting, angry, frustrated, unpleasant and nasty-tempered individual.

It didnt take you long to make yourself known.

There is nothing in the Apocrypha that supports this. Nebuchadnezzar is most often mentioned in the Book of Ruth, and no supporting evidence there.

The third century origination of Buddahism was proven incorrect by archiologocal evidence discovered at the Maya Devi Temple in 2013 dating Buddahism to the sixth century BC. twenty-five hundred miles from Mesopotamia.

You neither read the Bible and Apocrypha attentively, no are knowledgeable of history.

The great and mighty emperor, king of kings, Nebuchadnezzar ruled over the whole earth, that is all nations, peoples and tongues. The years of his enlightened reign were 605 BC – 562 BC, the sixth century, before which there is no historical evidence of existence of buddhism.

The book of Daniel tells the story of establishment of buddhism and setting up the golden six hands statue of buddha:

Daniel 3:1-7
Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellers, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellers, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages,
That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

That's the origin of buddhism and buddha, all the rest are lies of buddhists to conceal their heinous crimes of throwing into fiery furnace of those free men and free woman who refused to worship buddha, which buddhists did for centuries and still do with rohinja muslims in Birma.

I am still not following.

You referenced Biblical and historical records as supporting your statements regarding Nebuchadnezzar’s statue and Buddhism.

Regarding Biblical records:

I provided Biblical evidence that there is nothing in the Apocrypha that supports your statement, and noting in Daniel. Nebuchadnezzar is most often mentioned in the Book of Ruth, and no supporting evidence there. You keep referencing Daniel 3:1-7, but there is nothing in Daniel 3:1-7 that supports your statements. You have not referenced the sequence of events that led to the statue being built such as Daniels testimony in Daniel 2:37-38 and Nebuchadnezzar building a statue to honor himself based on this passage in Daniel, or the undeniable resemblance of the statue and the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in note Daniel 2:31-33.

Regarding historical records:

You have not mentioned that there was nothing out of the ordinary with Nebuchadnezzar building the statue as this was common in this era such as the Sumerian temples built by Sargon. It was also common to build statues to honor parents, and the statue could have been a statue of Nabopolassar. These are historical possibilities, and none remotely alludes to Buddhism.

You have not addressed this:

The third-century origination of Buddhism was proven incorrect by archeological evidence discovered at the Maya Devi Temple in 2013 dating Buddhism to the sixth century BC., twenty-five hundred miles from Mesopotamia.

Nor have you addressed Bodh Gaya, Sarnath, or Kusinagara.

You have avoided the entire historical record starting with King Anjana of the Koliyas and his daughter, Maha Maya and her husband Suddhodana

You keep mentioning Daniel 3:1-7 and the establishment of Buddhism but have failed to provide any evidence of Buddhism in Daniel, or anywhere in the Biblical or historical record of Nebuchadnezzar that evidences Buddhism or any remote seed of the tenets of Buddhism.

The only record of anyone being thrown into the furnace was four men Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Nebuchadnezzar also witnesses a fourth man in the fire with the three: “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

You have not read attentively what I have said.

In sixth century BC the great and mighty emperor, king of kings, Nebuchadnezzar ruled over the whole earth, that is all nations, peoples and tongues and he founded buddhism by erecting the golden image of six hand buddha: there is no historical record of either buddhism or buddha prior to the years of reign of the great and mighty emperor, king of kings, Nebuchadnezzar, 605 BC – 562 BC, while in this period buddhism flourished according to historical records.

It is clearly written in Daniel 3:1-7
Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.

All the people, nations and languages refers to all the people, nations and languages of the whole earth.

The book of judith in Apocrypha makes it clear that the great and mighty emperor, king of kings, Nebuchadnezzar ruled over the whole earth, that is all nations, peoples and tongues, and when he desired to erect the golden image of six hand buddha, some of the nations and peoples disobeyed his commandment, rebelled and refused to worship six hand buddha, and he ordered them to be burned alive in the fiery furnace. That's how buddhists were spreading buddhism for centuries: by burning alive those free men and women who refused to worship golden image of six hand buddha.

Therefore I said, you neither read the Bible and Apocrypha attentively, no are knowledgeable of history.

You have not addressed one single statement, Biblical evidence, or historical evidence that I have presented. You have ignored the historical, Biblical, and archeological evidence to the contrary.

You keep posting the same thing over and over and have yet to evidence your redundant posts with any evidence of a connection between Nebuchadnezzar and Buddhism, especially a connection between Nebuchadnezzar ruling the whole Earth and Buddhism.

You either have an argument or you do not, and you have yet to make an argument.
