A few years ago the tabloids were atwitter with "proof" that the Bibe (in Hebrew) contained hidden messages that had been recently discovered.
A few guys (with way too much time on their hands) were abe to extract similar clues in Moby Dick. Amazingly, the book provides hard, tangible warnings of assasinations years in advance!
--- The processing power needed to do this kind of work is amazing. The number of different grid configurations, checkingthe key words against all the different possible sequences (forwards and backwards, etc). Wow.
--- Same process, different details apply to other "uncanny" retrospective findings (Nostradamus, Revelations, a "clear" picture of any kind of conspiracy you can think of, etc). Lots of ways the prediction can be read combined with a whole universe of facts from which to find "matches" equals a gaurantee that something will be found. If you showcase the findings in the right way, it looks "amazing' to some people. These people buy supermarket tabloids (and high-cost managed mutual funds--oops--sorry)
