Loudmouth, ancient Hebrew only had consonants in written text. Which means, anyone looking for say the word yeshua need only to find Y and SH in sequence.
Stephen, I checked out the article you linked (Verboom) and I am astonished: the man does not address the Moby Dick codes themselves, but claims to have found "Moby Dick" in the bible, assuming to devastate the opponents. Huh? How is this nifty? Am I missing something?
Stephen, tell me this. If the codes amount to more than a hill of spoiled beans, then show me where anyone has done a completely fair analysis (not going on a fishing expedition but looking for all possible codes in the text) and then disclosed all that was found.
So far, I have not see anything like that. Obviously, any text made of consonants will have "codes" in it. Now if we go look and find that a given text tells us interesting codes like God is truth, for example, or messiah has come, while also coming up with codes like God is a liar, and Satan is God, then something fishy is going on, isn't it? Show me a link where such an analysis has been done, with full disclosure of all "codes" that were found, and I will examine it in detail.
