Precise Biblical predictions

From the IAmAnAtheist feedback form:

Ok first off there was a jesus and roman even wrote about it. Second Bible did tell how he would to very letter. When romans wrote it they were still with the Greek Gods. They wrote everything that the Bible predicted if you don’t believe me go do some research and you will find out for yourself. You do relize also that Romans laughed at him right called him false right? Though they never even read the old testament at all they were full-filling it. You can’t say that that all didn’t happen. Show me something that predicts that much in the future and gives it precise letter on what happened then you can prove me wrong.

Let’s do this the other way around — you show me some precise Old Testament predictions that unambiguously came true in Jesus’ time and you’ll have my attention. Since you claim there are a great many of these, I think a list of 10 would be a good start. If you can show me where the Romans wrote about them (as you state they did), that would be a big plus in your favor.

And remember, we’re talking about precise predictions that came true to the letter. No fair using predictions that were not claimed to be about the savior at the time they were made, or text that you call a prediction just because it somehow parallels part of Jesus’ life.

As soon as I can after you send me your list, I’ll post it to my blog with my comments.

    I predict that said reader/commenter will fail to produce this list before January 24, 2011; does this make me a prophet?

    Also no fair pointing to a “fulfilled” prediction when there is no credible evidence that it refers to an event that actually took place.

    There is no proof that shows that Jesus even existed. Only what people wrote about. But what you have to understand is that back then, people told stories, and they were all implied to be just stories and metaphors, but somewhere down the line, people started believing them, because no body questioned it. No body questioned it because if you did, you were considered a heretic and got burned alive.
