Who has read the books? Or read about them online? Or just plain heard about them?

What's everyones thoughts on Bible codes?

Here's some links if you don't know what I'm talking about...

I think that when the Bible won't work out one way (literally) they try another (magically). Somebody is stuck in a rut. :wink:

I find the whole thing rather strange/interesting. If what I have read about them is true(have to teach myself Hebrew), then I must admit that the possibility of every event being encoded in the Bible is very intriguing.

And if it is all laid out in the Bible, then is everything pre-determined? Or does it encode itself in real time? Lots of things to ponder on a lazy day.

Because the Bible is the real deal? I do not know.
It started with the first five books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy; the Torah(in Hebrew).

What's everyones thoughts on Bible codes?

The same kinds of 'codes' have been found in Tolstoy's War and Peace, Melville's Moby Dick, and Miami's phone book. Maybe the phone book is due to all the latins named Jesus in Miami? :shrug:

TBs will accommodate just about anything... :sad:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

I heard that if you start The Wizard of Oz and Dark Side of the Moon at the same time......


--------------------
Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense...

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."
Terence McKenna
