There is No Comparison|
Grant R. Jeffrey has written several books on codes. We have focused on the text in his book, The Mysterious Bible Codes.
In Jeffrey Satinover's book, Cracking the Bible Code, he presents the following matrices, which were rated in the top-five by our system:
The next table provides scores for a few of the matrices from the Codes in the Bible website. Roy A. Reinhold is the host of the site, and he has over 90 articles on a variety of topics by numerous authors on his site.
In the first section of the following table, the information is derived from Moshe Aharon Shak's book Bible Codes Breakthrough. Bible Codes Breakthrough is available in our online store as a download. The second portion of the table contains ratings on matrices Shak has presented on the BCD website. To read Shak's articles, visit the Directory of his articles.
Lastly, we rate the major code clusters published on the BCD website.
One reason the Ezekiel 37 cluster far outdistances others is that it was a major focus of our research following September 11, 2001. It may be that other clusters will catch up once we have had the time to research them further.
Why doesn't BCD's cluster rating system reflect how much has been searched for? There is a need for a rating system that can be applied to all published examples. Very few such examples disclose how many terms were searched for. So, to have any hope of being applied to all such code examples, we had to have a rating system that didn't reflect that. It's as simple as that.
Comparison of Top-Rated Matrices/Clusters
Now we will look at the top two matrices/clusters from each table and compare their ranking.
The intent of the above comparison is not to compare the relative improbability of the findings of the first three code researchers, but rather to simply show how great the gap is between the improbability of the findings of any of them from those of code skeptics. Because the INBCRS searches for multi-dimensional* clusters centered on a short search text, while those of Shak and Reinhold are confined to two-dimensional matrices, it should be expected that the scores of the INBCRS clusters would be noticeably greater. It would be exceptionally difficult to precisely determine the exact impact of this.
*By multi-dimensional, we do not mean that we are finding three-dimensional codes. We mean that we are locating ELSs of different skip lengths that pass through the same section of literal text. Most researchers focus on constant skip matrices. We are finding entire clusters of ELSs, of widely varying skips, interlaced in the same section of text. We, therefore, refer to this phenomena as multi-dimensional.
While Michael Drosnin succeeded in bringing Bible codes to the attention of the general public, it is evident that the significance of the codes he presented are statistically insignificant and barely rise above the best the skeptics have to offer.
On the other hand, Bible codes presented by experienced researchers dramatically outclass the best the skeptics have to offer. As we described in our last Digest, this holds true even though skeptic Dave Thomas drained an entire lake to fish out all the possible codes. A lot of nothing is still nothing.
