Having concluded that 586 BCE is the year in which Solomon's Temple was burned, and having already agreed with Wiseman that Amel-Marduk commenced his first regnal year in 561 BCE, another issue now arises.
Since Amel-Marduk's accession year of 562 BCE is Nebuchadrezzar's last regnal year, it is not possible that Nebuchadrezzar reigned forty-three (43) years, if his reign is to be synchronised with the reigns of the Judean Kings, as is indicated in the Biblical Narratives.

 600 B.C.E.
Circa 500 B.C.E., the Olmecs brought forth their calendar and mathematics; Heraclitus talked about universal flux and rhythm, Parmenides wrote about the oneness of Being, Empedocles about the unity of opposites, and Democritus about atoms and progress.
Chinese History, for example, 1000 B.C.E. marks the beginning of the Zhou Dynasty, which emphasized very strongly the Emperor’s “mandate of heaven” and “obedience to Gods”.
This would suggest that the philosophies that originated in the Sixth Century B.C.E. time era were not wholly based on “where’d we go wrong?” But that there was the allowance for a new manner of thinking, one which actually disseminated itself into the mainstream societies of the ancient world.
