The Bible code raises a critical question: Does the code describe an inevitable future or a series of possible futures whose ultimate outcome we can still decide? In any event, the Bible code forces us to accept whattheBible itself can only ask us to believe: that we are not alone. As Drosnin states, "If the Bible code proves one thing, it is that a nonhuman intelligence does exist, or at least did exist at the time the Bible was written. No human could have looked thousands of years ahead and encoded in that ancient book the details of today's world.

The "Bible Code" idea is a theory that God put secret messages in the used words in the Bible, in its original Hebrew format, specially on the Pentateuch, the first 5 books of the Old Testament and it's understood that they were written by the very hand of God, so from all the books in the Bible, those are the most likely books to be applied to this theory.
Also, more than "secret messages", ths idea is that the Pentateuch is actually like the "program" used by God to do the whole creation, all that was, all that is, all that will be, so I found this reading quite astonishing and overwhelming, obviously I can't say if it's true beyond any doubt, but honestly, what I read about here, and the "answers" that they were obtained from the test done to the "Bible Code", certainly gave me a lot to think and feeling that View 1 comment.

He does the same thing - he's very impressed that he found "Kennedy" crossing "president. Add in to that that he rearranges these things constantly look at every 20th letter. Look at every 21st letter. Look at every 22nd letter. Then he goes even farther than that, accepting diagonal words and words at various slopes. It's garbage, garbage, garbage, and has never predicted anything before the fact which is, in fairness, included in the definition of predict.

Simply start at any letter in the Bible, skip ahead a fixed number of letters to the next, and continue until it spells out … well, whatever you like. But might there be more impressive words than TORH? Yes, several! A code of equidistant letters buried within the Bible is not a new idea. See Wikipedia for a full discussion.
But with a little computer programming, Drosnin pushes it to the limit. Moby Dick revealed much of the same prophecies and many more. So, mathematicians turned back to the Bible to see what else they could learn by the using the software. Millions of dollars are waiting for the next great sham.
Found it hard to stay interested plus the conclusion of the book is anti-Christ. It suggests we can save ourselves when the bible clearly depicts the impossibility of that. And if we could Cannot recommend. At the beginning I was intrigued by the idea that everything was somehow coded in the bible, that everything that happened and what is going to happen was already written 3.
And after the first chapter I lost interest. Jan 04, Kristal rated it did not like it. The Bible Code. It sounded so outrageous, I was positive it was fiction.
It is not. It's such a groan. The author is one of many who claim that there is a hidden code in the Bible that predicts all the major events of the future. The only redeeming quality is that it has dozens of pages that are mostly or entirely taken up with examples of this code, like a crossword puzzle. So there's that much less to read.
It's also super repetitive, and some of the "prophecies" seem super vague. I have never The Bible Code. Two pages in, I knew why this one fit that category.

Excellent book if you want to learn about conspiracy theorists in or about the Bible. I believe it to be true.
The Bible Code
Drosnin describes an alleged " Bible code ", in which messages are encoded in the Hebrew Bible. The messages are purported to be hidden in the Torah , and can be deciphered by placing the letters of various Torah passages at equal intervals in a text that has been formatted to fit inside a graph. Drosnin suggests that the Code was written by extraterrestrial life which he claims also brought the DNA of the human genetic code to Earth. Drosnin elaborates on this theory in Bible Code II: The Countdown , suggesting that the alien who brought the code left the key to the code in a steel obelisk. Drosnin attempted to find this obelisk, which he believes is buried near the Dead Sea. Drosnin's book claims to be based on the technique described in the paper "Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of Genesis " by Eliyahu Rips , Doron Witztum , and Yoav Rosenberg ,  who have all denounced the conclusions drawn in The Bible Code. The general construction of alleged "Bible Codes" and Drosnin's methodology in particular have been criticised by mathematicians and others.
The Bible code-the ancient code encrypted in the Bible that may reveal our future-was made known to the world by investigative reporter Michael Drosnin. Now he reveals startling new predictions warning that we may have only three years to stop the countdown to Armageddon. This dramatic account opens on the morning of September 11, , when Drosnin witnessed the attack on the World Trade Center-and then found the terrible event predicted in detail in the 3,year-old Bible code. But according to the code, September 11 was only the beginning. He lives and works in New York City. Category: Religion Category: Religion. Add to Cart.
Bible Code II
A large part of the book is concerned with a pathetic futile search for some "obelisks" contained in a "steel ark" supposedly left on Earth by some Superior Intelligence in the distant past. We aren't going to stoop to critiquing such tripe, but instead will just make a few random comments. Drosnin's first chapter concerns the Sep 11 attack on New York. Of course, everyone is by now aware of the many examples we have found of famous assassinations and other notable events predicted by the text of Moby Dick.
