I actually was aware that the "seven times" argument comes also from Daniel 4, so I'm not sure why I failed to mention it. My apologies. However, had you read the article I linked, you would have noticed that Daniel 4 has been addressed:<quoted text>
Please research properly before you talk about other faiths. It doesn't look good when you misrepresent other faiths to try to prove your faith correct.
1914 is based on Daniel 4 and is calculated from the destruction of Jerusalem and the end of the davidic line of kings that sat on Jehovahs throne in Jerusalem till the time the one who had the legal right would take back the throne and start ruling on Gods behalf again.
Your research skills on other peoples faiths is nearly as bad as Mr Know it alls.
Is the 2,520 in Daniel Four?
It has been asked if we will offer an article considering whether the 2,520 prophecy appears in Daniel chapter four. You will recall that king Nebuchadnezzar was struck by God for his pride and that seven times passed over him (Daniel 4:16, 23, 29-32). In Daniel four, the word IDDAN is used with SHEVAH. Some, through similar reasoning as that employed to derive seven times in Leviticus 26, have taken this passage also as indicating a prophetic period of 2,520 years.
However, it is completely clear from the Scripture that the dream was specifically for Nebuchadnezzar, the punishment a chastisement for his pride, and that it was imposed upon him and him alone. Verse 33 says immediately the word was fulfilled against Nebuchadnezzar(ESV). Verse 28 says that all this came upon king Nebuchadnezzar.
Thus, the Bible specifically applies the chastisement to Nebuchadnezzar. It says that it was fulfilled. The text nowhere suggests any additional fulfilment or application of the prophecy in long time periods external to Daniel chapter four. Finally, it is unlikely Nebuchadnezzar lived a life anywhere near 2,520 years in length (he would have had to have lived until the 1960s A.D.!) His death occured between the second and sixth months of the 43rd year of his reign. He was succeeded by Amel-Marduk in 562 B.C. The period of seven times is wholly applied to Nebuchadnezzar. There is no part of the period remaining to apply elsewhere. An additional paper by us devoted to the question of the 2,520 in Daniel four is unlikely.
In addition to this, I might add, there are a group of Adventists, spearheaded by a man by the name of Jeff Pippenger, that believes the 7 times of Daniel 4 and Lev. 26 represents 2520 days. He commences the 2520 days in 677 B.C., not in 607 B.C.

Click that and see.
Now while we disagree with Pippenger concerning the existence of the 2520 year time prophecy, we must say that if he were right, his starting date is based on FAR more sound research than the Jehovah's Witnesses. It was in 677 B.C. that Judah was taken captive, exactly 65 years after Isaiahs prophecy. It was in 723 B.C. that Israel or Samaria was taken captive and scattered by the Samarians. So your 607 starting date is wrong. Assuming the 2520 date is right, the link above shattered the Jehovahs Witness commencement date.
However, as I have shown, a 2520 time period does NOT exist!
Here is the proof:
After you are done reading those two articles, there should be no hope left for you to believe in the 2520 year prophecy. It does not exist. 1914 has no significance in prophetic history.
1844 & the 2300 days BLOWS Jehovas Witnesses 1914 theory out of the water. Jehovahs Witnesses came up with the 1914 date to try and COPY the Adventists in some way, but they made a fool out of themselves trying to imitate it.
