Personally I don't buy into the bible code, or nostrodamus.
In the case of the bible code, I have done a test with Moby Dick (a standard test for these kind of text processing problems), and found a lot of
co-incidences within that too. Also people have told me that in the case of the bible code, it's even more likely to find things, due to the nature
of the Hebrew language, I don't know that language though so can't analyse that.
With Nostrodamus, I have a book by Delores Cannon, and one by John Hogue. It always seems to be a case of revisionism, after an event they always
seem to be able to find where it was predicted, but never (or at best rarely) do they predict in advance. This to me shows that even if they are
correct, they are of no use to us, because we can never get the meanings until after the event. In the particular case of the Hogue book, it's very
interesting to look at his books that came after the one I have. Hogue claims many hits that didn't appear in the old books.
Anyway, the thing with Obama I believe relates to the idea of 'Mabus', which under the usual silly rules of rearrange and substitute letters, can
make usama, ubama, obama, pretty much any close name can be twisted to fit.
