Mind Boggling numbers of "chance" :-o
HOW CAN WE ACCOUNT FOR THE PRESENCE OF THESE FACTS?
How did these features occur or come to be in the very structure of the Bible text? Their presence must be explained in some satisfactory way.
The reader will agree that there are only two possible ways in which these amazing facts could have occurred. They could have occurred either by accident, that is, by sheer chance, or by design. They could have occurred accidentally, or they could have been purposely designed or arranged.
No doubt some are of the opinion that these features occurred accidentally--that they occurred in this peculiar manner merely by sheer chance. Therefore, let us suppose that there are twenty-four numerical features or facts in the structure of a certain passage. What chances are there that these 24 features would occur together in one passage accidentally? This is easily calculated, for there is a standard, recognized, scientific method of calculating chances--there is an established law of chances.
Only one number in seven is a multiple of seven. The other six numbers which are not multiples of seven have as good a chance to occur accidentally as the one that is a multiple of seven. Therefore, according to the law of chances, for any 1 number to be a multiple of 7 accidentally, there is only 1 chance in 7.
According to the law of chances, for any 2 numbers to be multiples of 7 accidentally, there is only 1 chance in 7 x 7, or only 1 chance in 49.
According to the law of chances, for any 3 numbers to be multiples of 7 accidentally, there is only 1 chance in 7 x 49, or only 1 chance in 343.
(The calculation continues on the same basis)
Thus, according to the law of chances, for any 1 FEATURE or NUMERIC FACT to occur accidentally, there is only 1 chance in 7
For 2 features * 1 chance in 49
For 3 features * 1 chance in 343
For 4 features * 1 chance in 2,401
For 5 features * 1 chance in 16,807
For 6 features * 1 chance in 117,649
For 7 features * 1 chance in 823,543
For 8 features * 1 chance in 5,764,801
For 9 features * 1 chance in 40,353,607
For 10 features * 1 chance in 282,475,249
For 11 features * 1 chance in 1,977,326,743
For 12 features * 1 chance in 13,841,287,201
For 13 features * 1 chance in 96,889,010,407
For 14 features * 1 chance in 678,223,072,849
For 15 features * 1 chance in 4,747,561,509,943
For 16 features * 1 chance in 33,232,930,569,601
For 17 features * 1 chance in 232,630,513,987,207
For 18 features * 1 chance in 1,628,413,597,910,449
For 19 features * 1 chance in 11,398,895,185,373,143
For 20 features * 1 chance in 79,792,266,297,612,001
For 21 features * 1 chance in 558,545,864,083,284,007
For 22 features * 1 chance in 3,909,821,048,582,988,049
For 23 features * 1 chance in 27,368,747,340,080,916,343
For 24 features * 1 chance in 191,581,231,380,566,414,401
* = "to occur accidentally, there is only"
Thus, according to the law of chances, for the 24 features to occur in a passage accidentally, there is only 1 chance in 191,581,231,380,566,414,401---only 1 chance in one hundred ninety-one quintillion, five hundred eighty -one quadrillion, two hundred thirty-one trillion, three hundred eighty billion, five hundred sixty-six million, four hundred fourteen thousand, four hundred one. (The nomenclature herein used is the American, not the British.)
Many brief Bible passages have as many as seventy or a hundred or more amazing numeric features in the very structure of their text. If there is only one chance in quintillions that 24 features could occur together accidentally, what would the chance be for 70 features to occur together accidentally?
When there is only one chance in thousands for something to happen accidentally, it is already considered highly improbable that it will occur at all. When there is only one chance in hundreds of thousands, it is considered practically impossible. But here there is one chance in not only millions, but billions, trillions, and quadrillions, and quintillions, that merely 24 features could occur together in a passage accidentally.
The argument and demonstration is convincing enough. The amazing numerical features of even one small passage, to say nothing of the thousands in the entire Bible, could not possibly have occurred by accident--by sheer chance. All this evidence simply cannot be explained by the doctrine of chances. If these features did not occur accidentally, then there is only one conclusion, one alternative. They were purposely designed or arranged--their occurrence in such a marvelous and mysterious manner was intended or planned. The point can be illustrated as follows:
Suppose for example, someone were carrying a bag which contained 24 oranges. Suppose that suddenly the bag broke and the 24 oranges fell to the floor. What chance would there be that the oranges would fall into four perfect rows with six in each row, each orange being exactly opposite the other? Such self arrangement would be considered impossible!
Suppose, on the other hand, you came into the room and found the oranges arranged in the manner described. You would come to only one conclusion, namely, that they were purposely designed or arranged in that unusual manner. No one would risk being called insane by insisting that such a thing occurred accidentally!
Likewise, these profound numeric features found in the very structure of the original Bible text are not there by sheer chance or accident, but by design. They are arranged according to a definite plan; they form thousands of perfect and uniform designs.
It has been conclusively shown that there are amazing numerical features in the very structure of the Bible--their presence cannot be denied, but is a truth which everyone must accept. It has also been proved that these features could not possibly have occurred by sheer chance or accident, but that they were arranged or designed. This is a second truth which everyone must accept.
Since the discovery of a design is proof of a designer, the next logical question arises---

Reverse Speech and Childhood Speech Development
Reverse Speech research has discovered that children speak backwards before they do forwards. From as early as 4 months of age they are pronouncing simple words in reverse and by the time they reach 13-14 months of age, complex sentences are forming in reverse. Click here for an article about reverse speech and children.
This example is at almost four months of age. Right at the very end of the reversed track the child says, "Hullo" Download mp3 file

In this example my 13 month old daughter was in the bath trying to pick up a cup. She was unable to do so and reached out to me for assistance. The reversals says: "David. Help me." When you listen to the forward note that she says "Daddy" - forwards. The reversed word, David, occurred on the forward word Daddy. This shows the beginning of speech complementarity and the young child beginning to connect concepts David is Daddy. Download mp3 file

Found by RS student, Joan Corron. This child is a 3 year old girl. Her Dad had knocked over a chair which fell on Mommy's foot and broke a bone. The little girl's Grandpa says "He hurt Mommy very much". The child responds, "It's okay". But in reverse she says "It was not". Download mp3 file

Here is an amazing reversal found by reverse speech hobbyist, Matt Goward on his young child. The whole track is played forwards first, then the exact forward is isolated and reversed at three speeds. It says, "I love you Momma" - followed by dad - "Your Mommy". Then the exact forwards is played forwards and backwards. Then, and note this, the the child's exact words is played forwards and backwards twice.

In this example, my former step-daughter had run away from home. I had been watching her the whole time. She replies forwards, "I never knew that." - But she had known as the reversals says, "Daddy never knew." Not how it is almost exactly the same backwards as well as forwards. This is called a Mirror Image reversal. Download mp3 file
