At the point I looked into it, I could only observe retrospective evidence, so far I am not taking it seriously but it's a wonderful idea.

Can't be reviewed by anyone who is not into the original language. Brush up on your Hebrew if you want to get deep into it.
Spoiler for My prediction

I actually have a copy of the Bible code program. There are some problems with it, of course, but it is based on the fact that most hebrew words are only 3 to 4 letters long as a base (hebrew has no vowels). Letters are then added to either end to provide more detail to the words. If you use different skip intervals until you find a word, then you will most likely find it. The probabilty decreases some to find two words, and even more to find three words together, although this process is using different skip intervals that might cross at a letter, or be near somehow, although with short words, and limited letters the chances are you will find something eventually.
The biggest problem with the Bible code is you have to know what you are looking for in order to find it. There is no set values to look for to get any meaning. We can look and find World Trade Center Bombing, and even a name of a person, but of course, this is in hebrew, so you have to know how to say World Trade Center in hebrew first, and then transliterate the name of the person.

The portion of the Bible used in the Bible code was codified long before Constantine. The Septuagint (http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Septuagint) is the greek form of what we call the Old Testament, and what in hebrew is referred to as the Tanakh (Torah, Naviim, and Kotivim, the law, the prophets, and the writings).
It only works in the hebrew form, and in the order provided (which is of course arbitrary, not in historical order by any means). Although it is fun to play with, I wouldn't put too much credence in it.
