The Bible translated into Greek hundreds of years BC predicts the fall of the Babylonian Empire to the Persians, Greeks and finally the Romans. How is this possible without an omnipresent God?

Based on...? Where do you get this perspective?
Thoughts are invisible and they already exist. Ask yourself, where are thoughts? This is basic spiritual knowledge easily confirmed by seeing things into existence. Any book on thoughtforms or thought vibrations. See: The Astral Body by A.E. Powell
I would agree that thoughts come from a mind, which is not just a mere reaction of brain waves...there is a spiritual aspect to them. I am not disagreeing either that there is a spirit world, but I don't see how everything has already happened there.
In order for something to happen here, there has to be a blueprint in the invisible because everything begins there. That means it already exists before we can see it. We don't know when it will appear on this side because time is an illusion here.
Where do you get this perspective? Where has this thought that something happens in an invisible realm first then transmits here?
So, the Jetsons were correct on as many predictions as the Bible? I don't follow. The general populous does not have flying cars, floating buildings, or talking robots who are have AI... perhaps this is still a prediction yet to come.
Many were accurate. Like the Bible, some wrong/right. If I say N. Korea will fall to the US in a few hundred years and it does, is it an omnipresent God? Why not? God not involved anymore? Point is, it didn't HAVE to be God. It is possible w/o. Very.
Maybe the Bible is not predictions at all. Maybe it's the revealing of plans that have yet to be carried out, giving us a chance to prepare rather than react. Either we believe it or play the cards we are dealt. Just food for thought.
IDONO, interesting perspective. Cre8tor, the situation is that many Biblical prophecies are precise and have come to pass. Also, which prophecies of the Bible did not come to pass that were within a given timeline?
Well, depending on your denomination or version of Bible, the 2nd coming has been late a couple of times right off the top of my head. I suppose you also have to consider what's parable and what's not. This usually tends to fit the need though.
There is actually a Bible that can be followed (and known); just b/c some people follow something wrong does not mean that nothing is right. Also, you are thinking of cults, not denominations. When the 2nd coming happens we will all know.
Many Bible prophecies are extremely precise and clear eg the prophecy from Daniel in the original question.
Some things turn out to be good predictions, but not because the prognosticator is necessarily influencing the outcome or that this outcome is predisposed to take place.
Interesting... which predictions of the Bible are incorrect?
Why do the words "the only logical explanation" keep appearing. Very few things have ONE logical explanation. Besides, it's faith, not logic, that has people believe the way they do.
