Bible Code
The Bible Code is a report of the discovery concerning certain codes hidden in
the Bible that are able to foresee events. The code was first broken by an

Israeli mathematician, Dr. Eliyahu Rips, and has been confirmed by famous
mathematicians around the world. The three-thousand-year-old code foretells
events that happened thousands of years after the Bible was written. It foresaw
both Kennedy assassinations, the Oklahoma city bombing, the election of

President Bill Clinton, everything from World War II to Watergate, from the

Holocaust to Hiroshima, and from the Moon landing to the collision of a comet
with Jupiter. In an extremely complicated procedure, Israeli Doctors Doron

Witztum, Eliyahu Rips, and Yoav Rosenburg, were the first to search and analyze
the Bible for secret codes that reveal the future by using equidistant letter
sequences and statistical analysis. The Israeli researchers made careful
examinations and developed a collection of hypothesis, a collections of"maybes". Statistics provided the tools to test each and every one these"maybes". A hypothesis in mathematics may be declared false by the
presentation of a single example, which violates the hypothesis. The very first
thing the researchers did when they started their investigations was to make"observations". They grouped their "observations" and formulated a
hypothesis. Then, they tested the hypothesis. For example, a very common idea in
statistics is the concept of average. As a very simple proof we would declare
false a value for an average height for people of 10 feet. We all know that an
average height of 10 feet is definitely not possible. Definitely, we can say
that the concept of average participated in the analysis and conclusions when
the Israeli researchers investigated the letter and word sequences they found in
the Bible Code. Other statistical concepts that are easy to grasp are dispersion
or variability and correlation or association. It is obvious that the Israeli
researchers had to use some techniques to determine the extent of the dispersion
and the degree of correlation of the letter sequences. In this fashion, they
concluded that the observation regarding "equidistant letter distances" was
valid. Mathematical statistics provided the techniques for these evaluations. Of
course, there were many, many observations and probably a multitude of
statistical concepts were involved. There have even been a few dramatic cases
where detailed predictions were found in advance, and the events happened
exactly as predicted. Compellingly, the day that the Gulf War had begun was
found weeks before the war actually started. Additionally, the date of the

Jupiter collision was found months before the blast. Probably the most
provocative prediction of them all was the assassination of former Israeli Prime

Minister, Yitzchak Rabin. The author of this book, Michael Drosnin, had found
the assassination of Rabin predicted in the Bible more than one year before it
happened. Frantically, he attempted to warn Rabin of his findings. Sadly, the
situation was inevitable, and Rabin was murdered on November 4, 1995. Later,

Drosnin had discussed his findings and interviewed with many of the foremost
mathematicians around the world. He talked to experts from Yale, Harvard, and

Hebrew University. He even talked to a senior code-breaker at the United States

National Security Agency, who confirmed that there is a code hidden in the Bible
that does really reveal the future. It is very hard to deny what this book has
proved so well. Even though there has been much controversy about it, many
famous and respected experts have advocated and promoted this book with
conviction. It would be hard for anyone to throw away what this book is trying
to prove without having read its convincing points. Because of that, the content
of this book convinced me of its points. I find myself fascinated with this book
and urge anyone who has not read it to do so, for it will expand their mind.

Still, what the book is trying to convey is a very interesting but frightening
situation. No one really knows if the Bible accurately foretells what is to
come. However, the code may be a warning to this world of an unprecedented
danger, perhaps the real Apocalypse, a nuclear war. In any event, if there is
indeed a code hidden in the Bible, it forces us to accept what so many in the
world do not believe, that there is a God. And probably the most perplexing
question of all, does the Bible code describe our inevitable future which we
have no control over? Has our future already been cast in stone? Or does it
describe a series of possible futures whose ultimate outcome we can still
decide? Certainly, I hope
