Is the Pope Catholic?

Just flipped on "The Bible Code: Predicting Armageddon?" on History, and it seems that, while opponents to the idea use sound science to refute the damn thing, proponents point to the case where the Code was used to actually predict events before they happened. Astounding right? Makes me think of Penn Jillette saying if Nostradamus predicted 9/11 or the Holocaust, any Nostradamus scholar should be put in jail for not warning people. Well, can't blame the Bible Code scholars for such a lapse!

So, the most famous event that was predicted before it happened even? The assassination of Yitzhak Rabin. Huh. Prime Minister of Israel getting assassinated after potential peace with Palestine had been broached? Who could have possibly seen that coming! Way out of left field! If only his security detail had known, maybe they could have stepped it up a notch. I hear Israeli security details are real slackers...
