    One thought on “The Bible Code

      A lot of the dazzle of this book is gone once you realize that, if you can read Hebrew, the horizontal text is just plain text. So he's just playing find-a-word vertically (without vowels, so, for instance, DALLAS would be DLS), and then looks for words 'crossing' it - of course words cross it! It's plain text!Looking at what I've written so far, breaking at every 32nd letter:AlotofthedazzleofthisbookisgoneonceyourealizethatifyoucanreadHebrewthehorizontaltextisjustplaintextSohesjustplayingfindaw [...]

      You knew I’d get to this book eventually, right? Well, I’m here to tell you it’s absolutely brilliant. Drosnin is my idol. With a savvy grasp of human nature, a little computer programming, and a mathematician’s insight into probabilities, he put together a best seller.The book’s premise is that the Bible contains a secret code, and that he has cracked the code to reveal its hidden messages. Simply start at any letter in the Bible, skip ahead a fixed number of letters to the next, and [...]

      The Bible Code. It sounded so outrageous, I was positive it was fiction. It is not. It's such a groan. The author is one of many who claim that there is a hidden code in the Bible that predicts all the major events of the future. The only redeeming quality is that it has dozens of pages that are mostly or entirely taken up with examples of this code, like a crossword puzzle. So there's that much less to read. It's also super repetitive, and some of the "prophecies" seem super vague. I have never [...]

      "The Bible is not only a book - it is also a computer program." (25)I cannot speak, read, or translate Hebrew, but from my personal experience reading the Bible, it reads as if it is written by multiple people, not one singular "God.""But Joseph cannot be the encoder." (101)The Hebrew crossword puzzles are like finding images in the clouds. What does your mind perceive? Would you prefer to live in fear of the "End of Days" or continue going about leading your own insignificant life?Michael Drosn [...]

      I bought this book awhile ago, and have the follow-up somewhere on a bookshelf as well. What I've found interesting about this book - and the topic in general - is that it sounds logical and almost believable. That is, until you see the same folks on television, on History Channel or NatGeo, etc and they seem like utter quacks. Much like saving history from disaster is oftentimes 20/20 when seen through the review mirror, books of this ilk frequently show that they would've been able to 'predict [...]

      I didn't go to the end in detail on this book. the entire premiss seemed strained (though admittedly the idea goes back a long, long way) still. Th Bible either is what it is or not. By that I mean either the Bible is simply a book as some think or it's an inspired set of writings from God through called writers. If it's the former the code would mean nothing more than the happenstance. if it is the latter then understanding the text itself would be quite enough. Since the text of the Bible in t [...]

    7. Gaelyn Whitley on said:

      He uses the profound to teach the simple, and the simple to teach the profound. The Bible Code is certainly profound, but to understand it coming from our Creator, it seems simply perfect. I know it seems like a hoax to some, but you can never understand something or have a true opinion about it until you know what it is. I encourage you to read this work for yourself.

    8. Laurey on said:

      This book is written by a reporter and is about a code that was discovered in the bible that has predicted the future. It's hard to believe but once you read it and learn the science behind it, it's hard to ignore. I loved this book.

    9. Jacky on said:

      RUBBISH! I read this before reading the Bible. A lot of the 'interpretations' are nothing short of far-fetched coincidence to idiotic.

    10. Scott on said:

      I bought this crap for a long time. You can do this with any book.

    11. David Montaigne on said:

      I picked up a cheap copy of Michael Drosnin's "Bible Code" at a yard sale many years after it came out. I had always been intrigued by the idea that information could be encoded in the Bible through ELS, and that computer analysis might reveal something that had not been discovered before computers made these searches possible. I had never read the book previously because I had heard you could get the same results analyzing "Moby Dick" or anything else of sufficient length.But I am also an autho [...]

    12. Skylar Burris on said:

      The topic is fascinating, but the writing is rather banal. The chapter notes (which are written as block paragraphs and not referenced by number in the text) are as long as the book's primary content. The author can seem a bit repetitive at times. Having said that, the work is worth reading simply because of its interesting subject matter.Of course, searching for hidden codes can become a kind of word game. Drosnin seems to spend a lot of time plugging things into his computer program just to se [...]

    13. James on said:

      This book was kind of fascinating at first. My mom had it laying around the house and I think she read it in a book club once. The underlying concept is that they take the first 5 books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy), translate it into Hebrew (the original text version), string the letters together from 1 to 304,805, and then they put them into columns and rows of different size. For instance, 64 rows of 4772 letters. Then they plug the information into the c [...]

      Michael Drosnin, a reporter with Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, presents his investigative research of the discovery of an apparent code in the Bible. It is reputed to be a code embedded primarily in the first five books of the Bible (the Jewish Torah) -- but theoretically elsewhere in the Bible as well. Allegedly, the Bible Code is able to predict all manner of events, ranging from the Nazi holocaust to Hiroshima to the assassination of presidents and prime ministers, and several [...]

      Este libro es de lo más pintoresco. Folklórico, por decir lo menos. ¿Cómo puede ser tan popular? Yo creo que es tan vendido solo porque hoy en día ya no se puede hacer algo como lo del oráculo de Delfos, con cierta "legitimidad", al menos. A lo que me refiero, es que a las personas nos gustaría que alguien nos dijera qué va a pasar, o qué está pasando nos gustan los adivinos y demases, no es casualidad que a escondidas nos gastemos igual su platita en el tarot de la esquina y demases, [...]

      On September 1, 1994, Michael Drosnin, an American newspaper reporter, flew to Israel with a letter that urgently needed to be delivered to Israeli Prime Minister, Yitzchak Rabin. The letter stated that an Israeli mathematician, Dr. Eli Rips, had found a hidden code in the Bible that appeared to reveal the details of events that took place thousands of years after the Bible was written. More importantly, Dr. Rips claimed to have found the Prime Minister’s name encoded with the words “assassi [...]

      I originally read this book about 20 years ago when it came out. The only thing I remembered in it was something about Russia and Syria playing a role in the next great war. Needless to say, recent headlines drew me back to the book. Here's what it says: Armageddon is the Greek name for the city in Israel, Megiddo. Near Megiddo is an important Air Force base Ramat David. It's in the north facing Israel's foe Syria. Armageddon is encoded in the Bible with the name of Syria's leader Hafez Asad. It [...]

    18. Glory on said:

      A very interesting idea. Some of the codes are a little far-fetched; others, quite compelling. Some predictions came to startling fruition; others didn't (especially reading this pre-2000 book in post-2000 years). I started this book in 2009 and came back to it in 2011. I didn't miss much due to the fact that the author repeats himself incessantly. Sometimes I feel like each chapter or portions of a chapter had once existed as independent articles. Not good.But the most important thing to gain f [...]

    19. Lance on said:

      I heard about this phenomenon when I'd started studying Hebrew. I bought this book on sale at a mall bookshop. I had problems with it from the start. First off, it uses Hebrew, which doesn't use vowels (they're spaced in and around the letters as diacritical marks), so that increases the chances of any consecutive string of letters making words. So, to me, the comparison with War and Peace is so unfair as to make those who proposed it seem almost dishonest. For instance, my name is Lance. To tra [...]

    20. Benny on said:

      This was a naturally interesting topic for literature, and the concept is feasible. Still, I am unsure whether the researchers investigating this study are legitimately providing the most thorough exploration - perhaps I am skeptical, of either their methods for decrypting this so-called "code", or determining whether these scientists are actually disseminating the most thorough compendium of factual information, related to the material. I actually have a sequel hardcover on my shelf, called 'Th [...]

      In my teens, my school had a chaplain (nicknamed "Boomer" because he was a canon - geddit?), who was quite interested in the origins of the Pentateuch (he taught us all about the Priestly source and the Yahwist source, etc). He pointedly never told anyone what they ought to believe, a very commendable trait which was not shared by all of my teachers; nor did he say what he believed; rather he only explained what (most) Christians did in fact believe; "Christians believe that Jesus died for their [...]

    22. John Cassian on said:

      This is one of the only nonfiction books I've ever read that scared the shit out of me. Granted, I'm a fan of well-researched conspiracy theories. But this book made me (someone who'd been up till that point in my life a staunch atheist) wonder for the first time if there were truly a God. I now consider myself an agnostic. Granted, once you really understand how The Bible Code works, it seems very hokey (since you can line up text and play "free association" any way you like if you have the abi [...]

    23. Fiver on said:

      A secrecy theory very reminiscent of those found in numerology, not particularly well presented, and easily dismissed by either a little education, or a little research into the topic. Refutations are quick, plentiful, and really aren't worth the effort to list in entirety here, lowering this book to the status of pseudo-religious propaganda. It hopes to take advantage of the masses' religious devotion by trying to connect them to spurious and dishonest claims.It's horrible science, but it's als [...]

    24. David on said:

      It is a mathematical inevitability that computers can find patterns in a large text, especially when you don't declare what you're looking for ahead of time, or the distance between the letters. Without constraints, any pattern you wish to find is there. This is as useful as finding your telephone number somewhere within the digits of PI, and just as revealing. The book claims that the Wright Brothers are in Genesis 30:30, Newton is in Numbers 18:30-21:5, Watergate in Genesis 28:21 through Numbe [...]

    25. Rhiannon on said:

      I actually was excited to read it, I have a multitude of hypotheses and I had a couple friends insist that I read this and see oh in line my ideas were with his. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get as far as I would have liked because his blatant ego was more prevelant than the content of which he was speaking. He ruined what could have been monumental by prematurely stoking himself, and yes I intentionally avoided ego for any mutually freudian-minded persons reading this : )

    26. Clare Mullooly on said:

      Read this quite a while ago but from what I can remember it was quite thought provoking. Apparently each letter/word in the Bible has an individual number and if you look at the numbers together, dates/years appear. The author is arguing the point that major events have fallen on these specific dates that are similar in nature to what the Bible verse is ascertaining. And for the dates that haven't arrived yet, we'll just have to wait and see.I would take the book with a pinch of salt ;)
