Now hear this. I just read in the paper that some guy
(an Israeli mathematician, I think) "discovered" a code
in the Old Testament... by eliminating all spaces and
then grouping the letters (in the original text) to form
meaningful phrases, using a computer to keep track of
them. You probably heard of something like that some time
ago; a guy who took the letters in the Bible, placed in
a square and the read it across and down like a crossword
puzzle. (Of course he wrote a best-seller on that.)
Well, just wanted to tell you... It really deserves no
comments, except "Why don't I get such ideas?!"
