               Um forgive my blunt ignorance but...... Whats the Bible Code?

I doubt it. You can find pattern in pretty much anything if you look hard enough.

Gotta agree there. The Bible is written vaguely enough that you can apply it to almost anything..

In the sense that it can be used to find messages in any random text, yes.  In that it exclusively translates future predictions out of the Bible, no.

Then again, you can find messages in any text, including the Bible, using D&D dice as well.

The bible code is the same as saying this:

Out of the text i had just written, we can conclude that my secret meaning was actually "I had a bib".

I agree 100%.......I saw a show on TV once where they did the same thing with the book Moby Dick and found "codes".

Okay, so I gather that the Bible Code is indeed a "code".  But what are people claiming that this Code says?  Is it making predictions about something?

KNOWING FISH
One day Chuang Tzu and a friend were walking by a river. "Look at the fish swimming about," said Chuang Tzu, "They are really enjoying themselves."
"You are not a fish," replied the friend, "So you can't truly know that they are enjoying themselves."
"You are not me," said Chuang Tzu. "So how do you know that I do not know that the fish are enjoying themselves?"

Here's a quick little summary of The Bible Code, for those unfamiliar with the general story.

For a brief point I thought it was real, but it's not.  Seraphina has a point when she told me that there are more people alive and have ever lived than words or even letters in the bible.  Besides, the bible has been translated again and again and the original context of the script have been removed.

I agree, the Bible Code is FALSE.  

It has been edited, re-edited, and altered so much since it was first written down, that any secret Code would have been lost or altered to oblivion.

Unless, the Code has been enetered sonce then for some reason, but that reason is unknown.

Actually the Old Testament is 99% textually pure. The New Testament 98 1/2% textually pure. We have thousands and thousands of old manuscripts in many different languages and they all say the same thing, The variations are extremely minor, such as a word being spelled differently.

The Hebrew version is the most pure and that is the version they look for 'codes' in.

I still don't think there is a bible code, though.  wink2.gif

This is officially me being thick night, so what all these stories of the Bible being edited and bits missed out of the official versions then?  Such as the bits where Jesus got annoyed at a friend and aged him on the spot, to that of an old man, while they playing by a stream.

The books of the official New Testament were written within a few decades of Jesus'
death. The so-called missing books were written centuries after his death.
