    Been watching several news sources, including Israel365. I saw this article: https://www.israel365news.com/187021/new-bible-code-hints-messiah-to-arrive-on-purim/

    An excerpt:
    So, I was wondering: Who all believes that this will happen? I know that Kaballah is considered "mystic" and thus somewhat cultist, but there seems to be plenty who believe in Bible Codes.

    You forgot the most important parts. :)

    [​IMG]

    The Rabbi himself does not believe this will happen, has a contingency open for why it wont happen (people dont repent enough), says something different will happen (if people dont repent enough), and the blog gives you an easy way to fulfill another prophecy, from the couch, by spending 25 USD for a tree to be planted. :)

    You dont have to argue against the thing being improbable, if the internal logic brought forward, says its unlikely in the first place...

    But then the name Esther also appears in the codes, and the wort Purim is near to the word messiah, so... Wait, actually I dont know what that means. ;) Oh, and neither do the Rabbis. Nor do they say they do. They just want to point out, that its interesting... and then tell their followers, that maybe they have to repent more - so it can come true.

    According to the article.

    Oh, and page three of the plant your own tree offer to fulfill a prophecy reads like this:

    Erm... Not to rain on your parade, but that rapture came two or three days ago ('Thursday, February 12th'... Somehow :unsure:).

    Meanwhile, I used hindsight knowledge to find the word 'gamestop' in the Bible. And sue enough, it appeared in an area that also had the ancient Hebrew word for 'stonk'. Coincidence? No fucking way, dude. Numerology is real!

    @notimp: but... Wil the planted tree survive the rapture when the messiah arrives at... *looks up *... A Jewish holiday? :unsure:

    Nearly every year I've been alive there's been a new popular doomsday theory. Seems like a whole lot of people want to die but don't want to put in the effort of suicide. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    If it happens this time, that means there will be more demons.

    You're not far from wrong, actually. From what the book of Revelation says, they will all come out of hiding. They also won't be the "cute and cuddly" ones you expect to see in a cartoon like Looney Tunes - in comparison, think more like Nightmare on Elm Street, only the nightmare is in real life.
