We refer in particular to the paper Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of
Genesis, published in Statistical Science in 1994. This experiment suffers from major
problems concerning both its execution and the interpretation of its conclusions. Even
without these concerns, we would not take such extraordinary claims seriously without a
vastly more systematic and thorough investigation. No such investigation has been carried
out, nor has the work so far established a prima facie case. In addition, word clusters
such as mentioned in Witztum's and Drosnin's books and the so called messianic
codes are an uncontrolled phenomenon and similar clusters will be found in any text of
similar length. All claims of incredible probabilities for such clusters are bogus, since
they are computed contrary to standard rules of probability and statistics.
Among the signatories below are some who believe that the Torah was divinely written.
We see no conflict between that belief and the opinion we have expressed above.
