So, I used the same computer technology that "enabled" Drosnin to discover the extant of the "prophetic" powers of his code to find rational antidotes to this obvious hogwash. I got on the world wide web and found several good and rational refutations of Drosnin. Keith Devlin, Dean of Science at St. Mary's College in Moraga, California was the nicest and most generous of Drosnin's opponents.
Despite the fact that Drosnin has claimed that mathematicians have verified that he is onto something he cannot name one. I then tried to prove his point for him and found nothing to support this claim. To the contrary, what I found was mathematicians who said that it is no surprise that the Hebrew Bible spells words when you use a rather rudimentary and common encryption technique known as the "equal letter skip" It works like so: you start at the letter skip a fixed number of letters until you spell a word. Start with the first occurance of the letter "t" (rather the hebrew equivilant) in genesis, skip 49 letters and you come to an "o", skip another 49 letters and you come up with the letter t another 49 and you get h. Marvel of marvels you have the Hebrew word for Torah spelled out in the Hebrew bible. Suprising? Not really. In fact, it is to be expected.Read more ›
Secondly, Drosnin contradicts himself many times throughout the book. Here's only one example. On page 55 he states that "Atomic Holocaust" apprears only once in the Bible code, and he links it with the dates 1995-1996. On page 126 he agains cites reference to "Automic Holocaust", stating this occurance is the "only time it is encoded inthe Bible", yet he cites it with a completely different date, 2006. First, why are there two seperate references to "automic halocaust", if there is only one occurance? Secondly, how can either be credible if there is more than one reference to a date? And since the same Hebrew letters are used for both text and numbers, couldn't you pull *any* date out of the text if you really want to?
This is frightening stuff, not because the Bible has a hidden code, but because so many people are duped by this. We want desperately to know what will happen in the future, without regard for our own personal consequences or our own personal relationship to God. Hal Lindsay proved the gullibility of society in the 70s with his "Late Great Planet Earth" nonsense. He even went so far as to predict the Second Coming of Christ (something the Bible is VERY clear cannot be known by anyone except the Father - even Jesus doesn't know the date, so how did Hal get it??).Read more ›
