This paper provides an example of predestination. It is part II of a phenomenon first presented as an interesting puzzle by the editor of Statistical Science, in 1994. Because of the debate which grew out of the observance of the original phenomenon, fifty-five (55) mathematicians signed a petition entitled Mathematicians’ Statement on Bible Code to denounce the observed phenomenon. Because the mathematicians are in error, the author of this paper felt inclined to write a rebuttal to Mathematicians’ Statement on Bible Code. To substantiate her rebuttal, this author presents an interesting puzzle of her own which she dubs “An Interesting Puzzle Part II,” in which she demonstrates, contrary to the mathematicians’ position, that Bible Code can be hidden in any text of any length, including in the names of the key participants in the original Bible Code debate. Her demonstration brings into focus the question of predestination and free-will. She ends her work with three hypotheses that collectively explain the phenomenon and provide a scenario in which both creationism and evolutionism co-exist in the life cycle of mankind. The author of this paper is unaffiliated with the publisher of the original article published in Statistical Science and is also unaffiliated with the authors and rebutters of the prior work.
