A Match between Earthquake Haiti and the Year of the Earthquake
On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the capital of Haiti. Before looking in the Torah Code for this event, I already knew from experience that the 9-letter term used by my CodeFinder dictionary for earthquake (resh ayin yud dalet tav alef dalet mem hey) did not occur at an ELS, even if I used the wrapped matrix capability which allows for more than one pass through the Torah’s 304,805 letters. But there are many synonyms for earthquake. In The Complete English-Hebrew Dictionary by R. Alcalay I found a 4-letter synonym pronounced ahsone that is usually translated as harm or calamity. This term appears in direct sequence with Haiti. The combined 9-letter ELS axis term, HARM (EARTHQUAKE) HAITI, at skip -87781 (wrapped Torah) is the lowest skip for term. In a 162-letter matrix we find with it the Hebrew year of the earthquake, 5770 at skip -1, a “special case skip.” In computing the significance of the match here with the year, I used the frequency of the year at skips +1, -1, -87781 and +87781. The later two skips would have produced a matrix with 5770 parallel to HARM (EARTHQUAKE) HAITI. As is standard in my protocol, no significance was assigned to the axis term. As such the p value of the year was found to be 0.0106, which is about one chance in 94. Bottom line – Geologists had predicted that the fault was unstable and that it was only a matter of time before a catastrophe would occur there. However, while this match was mildly significant, it was not good enough to predict with certainty that this particular disaster was bound to occur this year.
