The Torah Code, also known as the Bible Code, is purportedly a set of secret messages encoded within the text of the Hebrew Bible where patterns of letters from the text, based on specific numbering sequences, are said to reveal an otherwise obscured message.
Proponents say that they have discovered statistically significant codes embedded within the text and that this is evidence that God's hand was at work in authoring the Torah (or Bible); skeptics say that it is nothing more than an elaborate version of "word find."
The latest from the Bible Code implies that the messiah will return in April 2012. Promoters of the Torah Code claim that this is not a prophecy.
Another prediction based on the Bible Code is that Mitt Romney will win the GOP presidential primary and the general presidential elections because God favors him. Ron Paul, after he quits the race, will be blessed according to coded messages. Back in 2007, people using popular Bible Code software were claiming that the Code revealed that President Obama would be assassinated in 2009 and that Hillary Clinton would become president.
