Dear Professor Haim Shore,
I emailed you recently regarding alleged Quran miracles, and it’s been a couple of days, so in the off chance that you haven’t seen it, I am gonna leave the comment here.
Recently, I came across some papers by a British-Iraqi electrical engineer called Ali Adams, that can be found on this link http://heliwave.com/, on the right side of the website you have a section “Related research” and under that “Code 19: 1 2 3” where you can find the pdfs. (they are in arabic)
Here, the author makes various tables of surah numbers and verse numbers that follow some pattern (for example, a table presenting all Surahs with odd numbers, but even verse numbers), and seemingly whenever he adds the numbers up (in a sense 1+2+3+4+….) he gets a number that is divisible by 19, which is a holy number in Islam. At the end, he has a computer analyze the possibilities and it is always 1 in trillion, billion, million etc.
Can such combinations (that follow at least some pattern) be found in the chapter numbers and verse numbers of the Bible?
Hashem bless you,
Peter, thank you for the comment. I never engage in numerology, like the one you have presented, either in Judaism or elsewhere. More generally, I never express opinion about any issue outside of the Jewish faith. You may find interest in my post about verse number in the Hebrew Bible and its relationship to the corresponding year number (according to the Hebrew calendar). Regards, Haim
