I picked up a 6 set DVD box for 99c (Definition of win) based aoudn the bible in the midst of the Da Vinci code. It's essentially the shows Discovery/History did on it. The first one was about the Bible Codes, which are supposed prophesies using the Equidistant Letter Sequence method http://en.wikipedia.org....

Of course, it is probably a big Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy http://en.wikipedia.org.... Thoughts?

Undoubtedly its probably a "Texas sharpshooter fallacy" (that's a new one for me). The majority of conspiracy theories are. Information is twisted and distorted until it fits a preconceived notion of what is actually there. It doesn't matter if all evidence and the forces of reality are against it - if you can believe it before, you can make it the truth after.

here info on bible codes http://www.satansrapture.com...
the most important source for muslim Arabs:

"And thereafter We [Allah] said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd'.".

- Qur'an 17:104 -

Any sincere muslim must recognize the Land they call "Palestine" as the Jewish Homeland, according to the book considered by muslims to be the most sacred word and Allah's ultimate revelation.

Ibn Khaldun, one of the most creditable

The bible codes was basically a cryptography scam. Quite a few of the alleged key phrases were derived from 'sounds like' wording. Plus given enough text one will generally always find key phrases. They found JFK's assination in Moby Dick. :P
