Indeed, with the limited info provided, there are multiple possibilities. I'm not going to provide analysis for every possible scenario. It's your challenge. You define what scenario you want considered. So, on this point shall I start with the founding of Canada?
I have yet to even craft a fanciful story of Canada's conquest of America. It is clear, thus far, that you cannot prove that Canada never conquered America. If you could, you'd have presented evidence, instead of just asking questions. Evidence comes in the form of declarative statements, not interrogatives. Whenever you come up with evidence that a conquest of America by Canada never happened, you just go ahead and share it with the class.

George Washington became President of the United States in 1789, first of an unbroken string down to the present. Canada was founded in 1867. QED

If Dorchester is a named section of Boston, then you have conquered a part of Boston.

EXACTLY.

Thank you for finally seeing reality.

So ends our discussion of the failed Tyre prophecy.

Whoooosh!! Right over KAB's head.

Notice the more he gets beat the shorter his responses are, so as to try to commit himself less and less?

If we were beaten daily, day after day, post after post our behavior might start to approximate KABs.

In context his behavior makes more and more sense.

He can't quit, which would be failure.

He can't admit failure which would be failure.

He is stuck.

The chronologies differ. Ezekiel assumes the standard 587 chronology but Jeremiah assumes a 607 chronology.

LOL. You can't prove it was unbroken.

Does the bible say it was unbroken?

Who says any given sitting president couldn't have been left in office as a way to placate the people of America? Just prove that this couldn't have happened.

But, you agree that I would not have conquered Boston. Thank you for your tacit, if reluctant, agreement. Why can't you just say what you mean? Be direct and honest sometime.

Is that what the prophecy states?

I did not know God did partial credit.

Maybe God didn't really create the heavens and earth but really just did a 100 piece jig-saw puzzle and thought that was close enough.

No reluctance. I've never stated that Nebuchadnezzar defeated all of Tyre.

I checked the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and it does not list the presidents.

Surly George Washington would know who the presidents are. Perhaps you can show me where he refers to them in his collected writings.

So you disagree with the Bible.

Interesting.

Can I report this to your cult figureheads?

A 'Yes' to ANY of the following completely and totally falsifies the "prophecy"

Does the mainland city still exist?
Does the island city still exist?
Do we know where it was?
Did Nebby take the wealth of Tyre?

Here, try this.....:

This is a lie. Are you this desperate?(rhetorical question, obviously)

We have refuted this, blow by painful blow, over and over again.

Bottom line, one failure and the prophecy fails. You are grasping at straws to defend ANY of it.

Ezekiel even ADMITS his prophecy failed
Ezek. 29:18

18 “Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor [a]hard against Tyre; every head was made bald and every shoulder was rubbed bare. But he and his army had no wages from Tyre for the labor that he had [b]performed against it.”
NASB

"BUT HE AND HIS ARMY HAD NOT WAGES FROM TYRE FOR THE LABOR THAT HE HAD PREFORMED AGAINST IT."

In other words Nebby got NOTHING!
