The first three days of the DAILY MAIL'S serial has run and it's been the most fantastic coverage. Michael is doing a number of interviews for us down-the-line from the US. He has done two interviews for South Africa and for the UK is doing THE JAMES WHALE SHOW (TALK SPORT) on Monday 9 December and THE PATKENNY SHOW (RTE Radio) on 10 December. I'm still trying to sort out an interview on BBC Radio 4/5 and will have more news on this shortly. The embargo onreview copies is lifted today (4 December) and I know we will get a number of mentions by newspaper columnists - Catherine Bennett is going to mention it

So, it's sad to see Drosnin is able to release a new book and continue to fool people like this. And this book does nothing to try to explain the basic combinatorics at work, instead it's more fantastic "predictions" and omnious "findings" like 9/11 that naturally will cause grief and anger.
Do yourself a favour and save your money, don't feed people that (obviously) knowlingly try to sell people vapour. Why not buy a real bible, or a book on basic combinatorics and probability and check out the following web page that explains all about this:
The reason is obvious to anyone with even a basic grasp of statistics. Using a cypher system known as a skip code (of which the Bible Code is a specific example), it is possible to encode a hidden message into a text. Used in reverse, it is also possible to find certain words/phrases in a text by using a skip code search algorithm. The problem is, it is not only likely to find your chosen word, it is a statistical impossibility NOT to find the word. Infact, a basic search for a simple word like 'towers', in a body of text only a couple of pages long, will yield several hundred results. You may argue what is the harm in doing this? The truth is, there is none. But by the same token, what is the value of doing this? The truth is, again, there is none. Unless the WHOLE sentence or message is revealed by the skip code, then it is meaningless. What Drosner does is to find specific words (of his choosing), that are connected in some context (like 'towers' 'twin' 'airplane' 'new york'), but he is equally likely to find all of these phrases, since there is a 100% probability of finding every word he looks for. Drosner claims that by cross-referencing the hidden skip-code terms with lines of actual text, the messages somehow become truthful and meaningful 'predictions'. But the significance of his results are a by-product of the selection process that Drosner himself creates.Read more ›

The Bible Code seems to challenge Western Thinking in how we perceive concepts related to our reality. We can easily discount the information as simply "pie in the sky", but i am always curious as to anything that may be telling us that we may not have all the answers at this most important juncture in human history. I believe at our stage of human evolutionary growth, we cannot see into the future and support the view put forward by Richard Feynman - Nobel Laureate Physicist - that "the only thing that can be predicted is the probability of different events." These different events occur because we are always in life at choice and activate continually the Universal Law of "Cause and Effect" to impact our live
The Bible Code 2 predicts the world would end in 2006? Well we're still around! Have someone time locked the wrong coordinates into the Bible Code? Note, even though the date is passed its due date, i am wary of its significance in a mysterious gut feel i cannot explain? With Europe in turmoil, Middle East in flames with further turmoil of Islamic State confrontations, together with Nato head locked with Russia regarding Ukraine and we do not need to be an Einstein to observe the scale of dangerous events unfolding before all of us. I also acknowledge that the Mayan prophecy
of "end days" has also surpassed - 23 December 2012. Aha, the Mayan's got their figures wrong as well! Or did they? Time will tell?
The Bible code 2 is well written and laid out for readers to understand the thread of what it is trying to convey to us.Read more ›
