Bible codes are interesting because they illustrate well misconceptions in
probabilistic principles. If you have a large text of the size of the
bible and you look for patterns, you find patterns. An
is on the Wikipedia page on Bible codes. Such patterns are statistically insignificant because
one can find them also in random texts. The premise of this movie is based on the finding of
the word "spring" in a "v" shaped form. This leads then to the search of the lost temple of
Solomon, to the arc of Covenant and the original text of the bible as handed
by God ... It is fashion today to label things as ``conspiracy theory" in order
to discredit it. Better is to look at the evidence, think about it and then
estimate the odds by the power of reasoning.
Of course, we never can prove that there is no God code. A bit of common sense helps.
If a writer of text wants to include a secret message in a text, would they proceed through such
skip codes? Hardly. But many have written about Bible codes or Torah Codes. An example is
this by the mathematician Barry Simon (from 1998).
