Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

The Skeptic Code

Bible Code

“Many conspiracy theorists seem very keen on the idea of hidden messages or codes secretly embedded within ancient writings. Believers claim hidden prophecies of significant world events and disasters can be uncovered and deciphered by analysing the Bible. By simply selecting a random paragraph and taking out the punctuation and merely inserting the passage into a matrix a skeptic, if suitably motivated, and with the benefit of hindsight is easily able to uncover whatever it is they fancy. Believers see predictions of the assassination of President Kennedy and the 9/11 twin towers terrorist attack uncovered in the bible as irrefutable evidence of divine revelation even though rational thinkers can locate predictions of the death of Leon Trotsky and Princess Diana secreted within “Moby Dick”.” – [Science, Reason and Critical Thinking]

Pure delusion, of course…

    If the so-called “Bible Code” works on both the Good Book and Moby Dick, ancient writings as well as modern, MIGHT this whole business be something which is matrixed behind literature in general? Or should I simply take two cyanide capsules and go to bed?
