The site below is a very interesting site that shows the way this same code
system can be used to prove anything. Very interesting and insightful-- and
you may even laugh.  Moby Dick predicts<wink> the death  of Princess Diana,
Yitzhak Rabin, Abraham Lincoln , John F. Kennedy , the assassin Sirhan
Sirhan,  Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss,
Reverend Martin Luther King , Soviet exile Leon Trotsky, President Rene
Moawad, and Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. It is amazing what this method can
do! Check out the site and see how data can be manipulated to fit whatever
model you want it to fit.

Assassinations Foretold in Moby Dick!
The following challenge was made by Michael Drosnin:

"When my critics find a message about the assassination of a prime minister
encrypted in Moby Dick, I'll believe them."
(Newsweek, Jun 9, 1997)
Note that English with the vowels included is far less flexible than Hebrew
when it comes to making letters into words. Nevertheless, without further
ado, we present our answer to Mr Drosnin's challenge.
