Who is author Michael Drosnin?

Author Michael Drosnin is a former Washington Post and Wall Street Journal reporter and author of The Bible Code. Drosnin credits Israeli mathematician Dr. Eli Rips for discovering the Bible Code. Drosnin claims that extraterrestrials put a hidden code into the Bible over three thousand years ago.

So how does it work? To find a Bible code, one uses equidistant letter sequencing (ELS) to find various codes. The process is done with a computer which records patterns found in the letter sequence. For example, the computer might start by recording every fifth letter. If no pattern was found by taking every fifth letter, then the computer would move on to using every sixth letter, and so on.

Author Michael Drosnin has supposedly predicted several events including the Gulf War, Yitzhak Rabin's assassination, presidential elections, and many other historic events.

Rips, who discovered the code says, "It is literally impossible to make future predictions based on codes."2

Brendan McKay, a mathematician and computer scientist at Australian National University in Canberra told People, "As far as I know, there isn't a single statistician in the whole world who supports this."1
