From ancient Jewish Kabbalah to Michael Drosnin’s “The Bible Code”, Biblical numerology has always had its adepts and detractors, often being the subject of much criticism as well as ridicule. However, today the veracity of biblical numerology has finally been confirmed with a remarkable new discovery. Researchers from the Interdisciplinary Department for Interstellar Observational Theology and Science issued a report this morning that unequivocally confirms the reality both of extraterrestrial intelligence of some sort and the Bible as an out-of-this-world piece of communication.
Researchers started to notice unusual periodic variations in the high frequency radio emissions from pulsar UMBJ-01/04 situated in the remote Nabal galaxy. Realising these could not be explained by any natural causes, further investigation focused on the minute variations in the periodic emission of electromagnetic radiation characteristic of pulsars. Normally “regular as clockwork” and more accurate than atomic clocks in their time-keeping, the emissions from pulsar UMBJ-01/04 varied by fractions of a millisecond in a regular pattern that could be likened to digital Morse code. Months of patient observation have borne fruit as the hidden message has now successfully been decoded.
If the encoding of a message in the disruption of the natural rhythms of a pulsar is remarkable, the content of the message is all the more extraordinary. When decoded, the message points to a sequence of letters within a biblical text. Analysis of the petabytes of data collected so far is expected to reveal other results, but in the first fully decoded message, researchers were directed to what must be the Bible’s most famous verse, John 3:16, in the New International Version.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Fluctuations in the x-ray emissions then indicate which letters are to be read (in order, including spaces) from this text to reveal a message. Undoubtedly the work of some extraterrestrial intelligence – and we will leave it up to readers to decide whether we are looking at the work of a deity or an advanced extraplanetary civilization – we invite the readers to repeat the researchers’ work and decipher the first message for themselves. Count the letters from the beginning of the text given above, F being letter number 1, moving backwards and forwards according to the values transmitted by the pulsar variations. So the first letter in the sequence given would be A.

Remarkable! Enjoy your day :)
