Wacky website predicts next Terrorist Attack

Using a nonsensical blend of numerology, "coincidence" and McKenna TimeWave "theory", this unique mix of hogwash will help you prepare for the next cataclysm.

This attack will only be inside your realm of perception if you are positive minded towards terrorist attacks and you want it to happen.  But then again, it is also equally true that this attack won't happen in five days. :headbang:

I was watching this program on the history channel earlier. It said that the "Bible Code" also predicts the world to end in 2012.

Has this already been stated on these boards?

"It said that the "Bible Code" also predicts the world to end in 2012."

I had not heard that , but it does not surprise me. I think the number of 2012 'evidence' is growing> what this means I cannot say? Just that perhaps our ancestors thought for some reason the worlds time would end at that time. Where did they get thier knowledge? It is hard to say, but I think the fact that so many theories exist from written record about 2012, could mean something. 2012 has alot more paper history backup then its previous: vision, prophesy, the world is goona end type stuff.

I got very interested in it a few years ago (well, more than that now... closer to 10 years ago) and actually reproduced the results using my own software. There are certainly some mind-blowing combinations that can be found. The hard part is telling if these combinations are something mystical, or is this simply a case of a thousand monkeys on a thousand typewritters sort of thing.

Although nobody will ever know for sure, after doing a lot of study on the subject, I tend to believe the later (that it is nothing special). Using different works, such as War and Peace, similiar combinations can be found. However, none of these combinations are as mind-blowing, at least to me, as those found in Torah. Perhaps this is because more monkeys are digging for meaningful combinations in Torah than in War and Peace.

The one thing that hasn't happened, which is what leads me to beleive it is all just a numbers game, is that nobody has been able to use the bible codes to predict a future event. Should somebody find a combination in there and use that information to stop a large terrorist attack, or nuclear war, etc... well, then my beliefs may change a bit...

The Bible Code has predicted nothing.

Swamiism: A prediction that does not predict is not a prediction.

As previously covered (geez, I should write a book so I don't have to keep repeating this stuff) everything in the Bible Code is "back-fitted" data. In other words, ONLY AFTER-THE-FACT is someone able to go back and find a few key words to partially match a specific event.

To date, not one event has been predicted by the Code.

Now an astute reader might say, "Swami, 2012 has not yet occured so isn't that predictive?" Two counterpoints.

1. 2012 pseudo-prophecies are already known; hence the backfitting of data still applies. FYI, one can do this same trick with any sufficently long book such as has been done with Tolstoy's "War and Peace". The Bible is not needed.

2. The Bible Code does NOT state specificially what will happen in 2012.

Hmmm... so according to the date of release of Pink Floyd's, The Dark Side of the Moon along with the number of tracks on the album and the length of the songs, the sears tower is going to drop on the 19th.  (I wonder which he used, the CD or the LP, 'cause the two are different :grin:

Interesting... and scary how much time somebody put into all of that.  Think how much good could have come if he put as much time into something worthwhile, such as feeding the hungry.

Actually on the History Channel special they found the words 2012, comet, and annihilation within in a matrix. The belief that comets will strike Earth in 2012 is also espoused in some channeled material (specifically the Cassiopaean channel). I'm still highly skeptical of the Bible code, but I thought I should put that out there for consideration.

Again, this is a problem. The bible code uses Torah, which is based on the Jewish calendar. Therefore, if you find something with 2012 in a matrix, and you didn't adjust to the Jewish calendar, the finding are irrelevant, or at least off by a few thousand years.

Finding patterns with bible codes is just like seeing faces or objects in clouds. The human brain is very good at this type of thing... finding familiar patterns in noise.

FYI: By the way... i was just repeating information
:rolleyes:

Yeah, i was wondering this myself. I didnt understand how they could some how forumulate these messages... To me it seemed like they just picked different letters and said they meant something.

Regardless i do not know how the "matrix" of the bible code works.

I do not understand why the mayan calendar ends on its date in 2012.

But i will not let what i dont understand rule my judgements, but i wont let what i dont know escape me. I know its there... obviously.

To me its not a question of finding some proof that "the world as we know it will end". Its more of an understanding of human nature... looking over all these thousands of years of human civilization.

Coming to the realization that humans on this planet have gotten so curious they can blow themselves up many times over, make them puke their guts out of their nostrils many many times... and all this with an inability to make it seem like things are getting better. To me thats more of a precise prediction than finding some formulation of numbers to coincidentally mean something. For which i have much more proof of my own ideas.

It doesn't... well, not anymore than our current calendar ends on 9999.  We don't bother saying it is the year 02004.  Same thing with the Mayan's... why bother with another place holder when you don't currently need it.  Had the Mayan culture lasted until 2012, I am fairly certain that their calendar would simple get a new symbol for the next cycle and the process would repeat... year 10000 if using our calendar as an example.

Hmmm... the 19th is almost over and no world ending terrorist attacks yet.  Damn, and I didn't bother buying any food for this week...  :mad:

Did you ever do a word search puzzle where you try to find words in a big grid/matrix of letters? More or less the same thing, only you are trying to find words in Torah (well, an equal spaced letter representation of Torah) rather than a puzzle book. So you look for words like Hitler, Death, WWII, Atomic Bomb, etc that all cross each other and then say, "Wow... the bible predicted this would happen... see, it is right here!?"

It is a bit more complex than my example above, but not by much. I am leaving out the statistical analysis that shows how rare these matches are (within the source you are searching within... which happens to be a point most of the proponents overlook). Boiled down, I still think people are simply seeing faces in the clouds, so to speak.
