Do you believe in the Bible Code or any others similar to it? And, are you at all superstitious?

Wait, there are people who read your journal that have an @home.com ending e-mail address? That's cool! It's what I would have if mine actually worked. And it means there's a chance the readers are from this general vicinity.

To answer your question, no. Sorry, I don't have much to say on that matter, I just wanted to talk about e-mail addresses. Ignore me now. :)

After my wacko christian friends dragged my agnostic but to the Omega code about 12 times.. i think there could be some sort of code. Eventhough I dont think it has anything to do with a 'higher being.' I think It's all about big brother. you heard me. and i'm not kidding. i swear. they're all around. and the bible is all part of this scheme. i kid you not.

I've heard a speech about the Bible Code and it did sound really convincing, the way words could be formed all over the place, including three dimensionally, and in every language the Bible was translated into. There were full sentences and groups of specific words interlinked. However, you can make anything say anything: I bet the same is true of more or less any piece of writing. Like, the question: if you take every fifth letter, it says UETBDNENTAETUTU, I think. Hey, it's got a "tutu" in it! Which shows that Tim actually took ballet lessons when he was young!

The Bible Code sounds a bit rubbish (sorry, but it does), but, I can be superstitious over horoscopes. Not often, but sometimes I'll read something that I think is really accurate and go way overboard about it (see my latest journal entry for evidence of this).

And in answer to whoever was going on about home.com email addresses up there (Sarah?) one of my best online friends and sisters, Jaye, has a home.com email address. If you want to make friends with her, she's at sand- castle.net/jaye.
