Talk:Bible codes

Return to "Bible codes" page.

Over-powered language

The use of the word 'zealot' in this sentence, 'On the side of some ‘Bible Code’ zealots...' seems a bit too strong of a word. I'm going to change it to 'believers' as it is a softer word that still gets the point across. MHarris

Excellent point! Thanks! :) :) :) PatternOfPersona 20:46, 9 June 2011 (EDT)

Zealot comes across as sounding like they are fanatical and makes them look almost like a cult. That is the only problem I have, the rest of it is till good though.


I feel that Biblical codes (or Codes in the Bible) would sound and scan better, though I may be mistaken. These titles would imply, however, that the Bible was discussing codes, so perhaps Biblical encoding would be more precise. Guymessage me 07:49, 10 June 2011 (EDT)

I thinking there certainly is a sense in which that is a good idea. But, my singular, and quite pressing, hunch is that any title but "Bible Codes" would be too complicated, even if more self-explanatory in a sense. Are you familiar with "Mind maps"? Specifically, with the most open-and-simple versions of them? I mean, any title which is so self-explanatory as never to be misleading for any frame of semantic reference would be far longer than the article itself. :) LOL! Feel free to change the title. But, if you do so, how does a wiki take care of all references in other articles to [[[Bible Codes]]? I do recall a 're-routing' thingy, but I don't know what it is, nor if it's automatic or if it has to be created manually. PatternOfPersona 18:11, 10 June 2011 (EDT)
If it was moved, this page should be replaced with a redirect, to preserve old links. Guymessage me 08:18, 11 June 2011 (EDT)
