The Bible Code
« on: June 10, 2008, 01:16:19 pm »
I posted this in the religion thread, but due to the argument that all ready was going on it was buried quickly.

The Bible Code is something interesting... I just wanted to post this to see what you guys think of it. (this is the second video)

Is that the one that says the bible predicted Hitlers rise to power and stuff like that (I'm having problems accessing the video, although I'm almost positive it's my internet providers fault and not the video's)

If Hitler is in the bible, why didn't they made sure World War II didn't come to be?  ::)

Because usually when God makes a prophecy or promise, he makes sure it's fulfilled. So if the Bible prophecies a tragedy, it must occur so that it is proven that what God says will come true. If WWII was prevented, God has thus failed to uphold his word.

That is the perspective of these prophecies.

They might just be putting this together on their own.

Kinda like numerology where they find numbers that relate to an event.

Here's how the bible code works:

Take the original bible in Hebrew, now jump through the characters from a certain position by a certain distance. So let's say you start at some point and jump 50 characters each time, sometimes words will appear in horizontal, vertical and diagonal positions very close to each other that when translated to english have some kind of meaning, for example the words

Hitler
World
War
Two
Genocide

appear near each other and therefore people assume there must be a code hidden in the Bible but the fact is that if you take any book with enough words you can find similar results.

Believe it or not, they actually made software that does all of this automatically <_< (that's how I know how it works and how it also fails :P)

Yeah, it went from being an argument that almost was converting me into one of the worst ideas I have ever heard of.

They did this with John Safran's Musical jamberee or it might have been John Safran vs God either way they used the bible to predict the career of vanilla ice and then the lyrics from his album to predict 9/11. I think they even used the same method to "predict" things that had happen years before the material the prediction came from was released.

You can find code like this I any sufficiently large piece of text you want. Thats the human mind for you; it's great at reading between the lines, even if there isn't anything there to read.

It seems to be that only past events can be found. Agreeing with Ovi that the human mind is looking for a pattern and its only going to find that stuff that people know about. All this is doing is trying to make sense of the world. With the WWII people are like could this have been avoided then someone looks at this huge list of random letters and is looking for an answer the mind is going to make one. They see it in this code and like thats it god wanted it to happen so its ok not our fault.
