Apr 06, Lee Harmon rated it did not like it You knew Id get to this book eventually, right? Well, Im here to tell you its absolutely brilliant. Drosnin is my idol. With a savvy grasp of human nature, a little computer programming, and a mathematicians insight into probabilities, he put together a best seller.

He became a believer in when Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated. In , Michael Drosnin wrote the book "The Bible Code" about a code that supposedly predicts future events. On September 1, , Michael persuaded a man to give a letter to Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, that said that in the Bible Code, his name was found with "Assassin, That Will Assassinate", but Rabin did not believe it.
Fourteen months later, he was gunned down by an assassin after a peace rally in Tel Aviv. However, Michael is not the first person to have found codes in the Bible. In , a rabbi found several codes in the Bible, and found that he skipped every fifty letters in the book of Genesis, and it spelt out "Torah". Decades later, scientists used a computer program called a skip code, in order to find more codes in the Bible.
In , Israeli mathematicians ran a skip code to search for names of thirty-four prominent Jewish rabbis in the past years. Amazingly, they were all found in the book of Genesis, along with their births or deaths. Drosnin claims the odds of finding the dates and the names were 11 million to one. Ganz was initially skeptical until he found the birth and death places of several of the thirty-four rabbis near their names.
Drosnin then used the skip code program to find several historical figures. He did not believe in the Bible Code until , when Rabin was killed. He began his own research into the code. But not all that is in the "Bible Code" is negative. However, many researchers, including Michael Shermer, are skeptical about the "code". He believes that the discoveries are probably just a coincidence and that it is a nothing more than self-fulfilling prophecy. However, Drosin is certain that the "Bible Code" is real and that it only works on the Bible.
In fact, he ran the skip code program on "War and Peace" and found nothing of interest. He continues to search for more codes that might predict the future. One warning that he has found is of a possible nuclear war in the next ten years. It is encoded as "World War, Atomic Holocaust, , ". That prediction, made by Drosnin that a World War would happen in either or was incorrect as none has happened.
This causes the "Bible Code" to lose an amount of credibility.
Overview[ edit ] Contemporary discussion and controversy around one specific steganographic method became widespread in when Doron Witztum, Eliyahu Rips and Yoav Rosenberg published a paper, "Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of Genesis", in the scientific journal Statistical Science. The traditional WRR view of the codes is based strictly on their applicability to the Torah, and asserts that any attempt to study the codes outside of this context is invalid. This is based on a belief that the Torah is unique among biblical texts in that it was given directly to mankind via Moses in exact letter-by-letter sequence and in the original Hebrew language. To obtain an ELS from a text, choose a starting point in principle, any letter and a skip number, also freely and possibly negative. Then, beginning at the starting point, select letters from the text at equal spacing as given by the skip number. For example, the bold letters in this sentence form an ELS. Arrange the letters from Genesis —10 in a column grid and you get a word search with "Bible" and "code".
