|THE BIBLE CODES|
|Marvin V. Zelkowitz|
|Computer Science Department|
|University of Maryland|
A recent best-selling book has caught the public's interest with seemingly prophetic coded messages found through computer-intensive searches of the Bible. Hidden for 3,000 years are direct references to World War 2, the Kennedy assassination, the Oklahoma City bombing and numerous other current (and future) events. The underlying message to all this must be that in order to foretell the future, the Bible must be divinely inspired.
This talk will discuss the bible codes and discuss from a skeptic's perspective the consequences of finding such hidden messages in this ancient text.
