  CODES - Not due to chance?

STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT CODES FOUND IN THE

OLD TESTAMENT COULD NOT BE DUE TO CHANCE

That was the conclusion of two of the most respected statistical societies in the United States and Great Britain. That startling conclusion has dumbfounded the scientific world in its implication that the five books of Moses could not have been put together by a few old Rabbis in Babylon in the fifth century B.C.

Coded references to events and personalities many hundreds of years after the Bible was supposedly written were previously dismissed as statistical anomalies. The advent of the computer however has produced so much evidence that even the most conservative of skeptical scientists have come to the conclusion that something very extraordinary is to be found in the Torah which Moses is supposed to have received from G-D on Mount Sinai, some three thousand five hundred years ago.

There are literally thousands of statistically valid examples which are now available for citation, a simple three should suffice to make the point.

1) The ancient sages have always maintained that all knowledge was contained in the Torah ( The Five Books of Moses ) and that for example all varieties of trees grew in the Garden of Eden. Yet in the verses describing Eden, there are no trees mentioned by name. We know the ancient Hebrew names for 25 variety of trees and sure enough in the code known as ELS (equidistant letter sequences) e.g. Wheat can be found in Genesis W ( 5 letters ) H ( 5 letters ) E ( 5 letters ) A ( 5 letters) T. ) all 25 names of the trees are found in that passage describing the garden of Eden. The odds against that happening by chance is 500,000 to 1. (see attached)

2) We now turn to the prediction of a future event. The most renowned commentator on the Bible was Moses Maimonides known as the Rambam who lived in the twelfth century and wrote a massive work called the Mishne Torah in which he commented upon the 613 commandments in the Books of Moses. There is only one acronym for RAMBAM anywhere in the Torah. (The acronym in this case RaMBaM describes four words following each other starting with the letters R,M,B,M (see attached), the letters in the triangles. There were no vowels in ancient Hebrew!). This passage deals with the original Moses in Egypt, Moses Maimonides also lived and worked in Egypt. The acronym reads "That my wonders may be multiplied in the Land of Egypt. "From this paragraph in a ELS sequence of 50 (a 50 letter skipping code, 50 being a very significant number which constantly re-occurs in the codes ) the word MISHNE appears. (oval letters on the sheet). Slightly more startling further on in the passage the word TORAH also appears, also 50 letters apart. (The other oval letters). What devastated the scientists is that there were exactly 613 letters between MISHNE and TORAH, the exact number of the commandments and the subject of Maimonides life's work. You will not be surprised that his birth date also appears in the same paragraph.

3) If his birth date appears, perhaps the birth and death dates of other great sages might also appear in the codes. Such an experiment was undertaken and it was the results of this that has turned science on its head. The investigators took the names of 34 leading personalities found in "The Encyclopedia of Great Men in Israel" together with their birthdays and dates of death. Using the codes, they investigated all possible combinations in the Book of Geneses to see if they could obtain the same effect as with the Rambam noted above, and as controls they took Tolstoy's War and Peace, a version of the Book of Isaiah and a book made up only of random letters. In all the control experiments the results were exactly as would be expected by chance in the Book of Genesis however the results showed that the odds against chance were less than 1 in 50 QUADRILLION (1 with 15 zeros after it ). Is it any wonder that statisticians around the world are re-assessing their views regarding the Old Testament. This report was published in the respected journal " Statistical Science " where all papers are subject to peer review prior to publication. NO FLAWS WERE FOUND.

An amusing little {postscript}. We know the Hebrew name for diabetes and for pancreas of course. The codes were run on a computer and both names were found in the same paragraph. What is quite startling however is that the word INSULIN ( in English ) is also found in the same please. (see attached)
