Others would say that the Bible’s ability to predict the future is not all that impressive. After all, the predictions it makes are often pretty vague, and a lot of the specific predictions haven’t come true, and the people insisting that the Bible makes accurate predictions about the future have this track record of making guesses about the date of the Apocalypse, and the Bible fails to mention a lot of future events that you’d think any half-decent prediction of the future would include…
Also, “ALL of the Bible’s prophecies (so far) have come true!” So, all of the Bible’s prophecies have come true, then? I don’t think God is uploading new prophecies to the Bible as we go, though if He was I suppose none of us could prove it.

“(…A)nd they shall call his name ‘Emmanuel’, which being interpreted is, ‘God with us’.” - Matt. 1:23
Really? Where else, New Testament or Old, is Jesus referred to as “Emmanuel” or called that by name? (According to my “Strong’s Concordance”, that verse is the *ONLY* place in which that name appears.)
“I think that we can definitely call this one “Busted!”, Adam!”
