If you examine any thing long enough you can make whatever patterns you want appearHold on. You have to slow down. You're losing it. You have to take a breath. Listen to yourself. You're connecting a computer bug I had with a computer bug you might have had and some religious hogwash. You want to find the number 216 in the world, you will be able to find it everywhere. 216 steps from a mere street corner to your front door. 216 seconds you spend riding on the elevator. When your mind becomes obsessed with anything, you will filter everything else out and find that thing everywhere.

If you believe in that bible code crap then you also believe Jack Kerouac was a prophit as well.
Oh, and you're also a ****ing giant nutbar.

the bible code is really lame. Everything they base their assumptions off of is completely vague and they stretch everything amazingly thin. I read the book Bible Code or whatever... interesting, but retarded.

Aside from this, it doesn't seem like there would be a way to even predict future events because you have no idea what to look for. Things don't exactly show up in a nice neat sentence and pattern, so all they find are past events.
The only interesting parts are the extremely tight matrices some of the phrases are found in. However, it's still just matching of keywords from the past.

I believe Huckleberry Finn was also used to prove that using "Bible code" lets you pick any arbitrary message from any large enough body of text.

and it was a pair of phd's in math that "discovered" this... yet they missed the obvious logical flaws. i guess christian math parallels christian science. or judaism in this case.
