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.

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.

Drosnin's reaction to them is unsurprising: he pretends they don't exist. When forced to comment on them by an interviewer, he usually lies through his teeth and claims they are fake. We don't blame him; what else can he do? One of Drosnin's claims is that the Bible predicts the attack on New York. This is the subject of the cover graphic US edition which shows "airplane" encoded close to "twin towers". Amazingly, exactly the same three Hebrew words, and many supporting words, are also encoded together in the Hebrew translation of War and Peace:.

The word "the twins" diagonal of red squares at the top of the picture appears here at its smallest skip in War and Peace, just as Drosnin's example of the same word appears at its smallest skip in the Torah. It is interesting that Drosnin has decided to rewrite the history of the codes in this book, even contradicting his first book.

Now Eliyahu Rips has been promoted to the role of sole discoverer of the codes, and other people who actually had more historical importance, such as Rabbi Weissmandl and Doron Witztum, are totally absent. Indeed, Rips has been promoted to "prophet"; a rare honour.

Minor matters like the scientific value of his work are left to a small appendix. We will now quote a few sections of that appendix and comment on them. It's pretty funny to say that I don't read Hebrew and then to admit that I worked with a team of native Hebrew speakers.

If we were unkind, we might also ask why Drosnin never mentions that codes supporter Harold Gans, cited on the next page, doesn't read Hebrew either. Incidentally, the last claim in the quotation above is nonsense. Note: same names and same dates. The same phenomenon exists in all books, just not the same words in each case.

For example, alternate names which are just as valid for the same rabbis appear in War and Peace close to the same dates; see here. Here Drosnin demonstrates just how thorough his investigation was. In fact most of the rabbis are known by many names, and the choice of which names to use is the most serious dispute about the data.

The spellings are also important, but less so. Rips and his colleagues claim that Havlin chose the names as well as the spellings. When we asked a different expert to compile the data, just as Rips claims Havlin did, the resulting list showed no sign of codes. Drosnin knows this. That's not double-blind.

In a double-blind experiment, the investigators Rips and co. An openly cooked experiment is not a "hoax" but a revealing demonstration of what data manipulation can achieve. Drosnin knows that; he is just using this word in the hope that it will stick regardless.

Alas for poor Mr. Drosnin, the editors and four referees of Statistical Science don't agree with him on this point. See the disproof of this experiment, by a committee chaired by "Israel's most famous mathematician" Robert Aumann here. This is a gross distortion. Recall there were two lists of rabbis. In each case Rips and his colleagues made errors in their favour when they selected the data. Witztum found that undoing both sets of errors together made the second list perform better, but of course the errors were not made together but separately.

This is an absolute lie. Nothing like this ever happened and we did not even see this claim before now. Very funny. What difference does it make if nobody noticed these predictions until later? An example of a "prior prediction" Drosnin claims to have made is the "global economic collapse" that began in the Jewish year that ended on Sep 2, He appears unconcerned that economists don't seem to have noticed.


Bible code

Michael Drosnin, an investigative reporter, first heard of the bible code in He met in Israel with Eli Rips, the mathematician, who broke the code, work that Isaac Newton had attempted and came up empty handed. Since then Drosnin has done work on the code himself. He found the assassination of Yitzak Rabin, one year before it happened. He warned Rabin personally. Rabin, a fatalist, ignored the warning and on Nov. Since then the bible code has shown many events that happened throughout history.


Bible Code II

The statistical likelihood of the Bible code arising by chance has been thoroughly researched, and it is now widely considered to be statistically insignificant , as similar phenomena can be observed in any sufficiently lengthy text. Many examples have been documented in the past. One cited example is that by taking every 50th letter of the Book of Genesis starting with the first taw , the Hebrew word " torah " is spelled out. The same happens in the Book of Exodus. Modern computers have been used to search for similar patterns and more complex variants, as well as quantifying its statistical likelihood.


Michael Drosnin's second book on the Bible Codes

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.
