The Bible Code: Riddle and Solution
In 1993, Statistical Science published a paper purporting
to show that a code exists in Genesis, foretelling the future.
The paper had been refereed by many distinguished scientists,
among them Nobelists, the world's most renowned statisticians,
and others, who could not find the flaw in the paper. A team
of skeptics set out, as sleuths, to find out who really put
the code in the Bible.
