Einstein Method Guidelines
The Tools for Measuring Religious Beliefs

Preparing for the Ultimate Discovery

If you are going to build a house, you will need the right tools. And just as important, the tools must be in top notch condition. Without the proper tools, the job is very difficult.

Just as important, the Einstein Method has seven tools (guidelines). This page will reveal these needed guidelines, which will ensure that we are viewing religious beliefs from an objective viewpoint only. Otherwise, the site is simply biased information. The seven guidelines are listed and discussed below:

Guideline #1: Written Code with Prophetic Verses:

The religion must have a written code that actually foretells of future events. Written codes are physical evidence. Here are some examples of religions with written codes.

Religion

Holy Book

Prophetic

Judaism

Old Testament/Oral Tradition

Yes

Christianity

The Bible

Yes

Islam

Qurían & Hadiths

Yes

Hinduism

Bhagavad-Gita

No

Taoism

Taoist Tao-Te Ching

No

Buddhism

Dhamapada

No

Nostradamians

Nostradamusí Quatrains

Yes

Without a written code, a religion only has beliefs based on oral tradition. Beliefs that are not recorded change with time and are probably not accurate. An example of oral tradition handed down is found in Islam. The Hadiths, believed to be sayings and instruction from the prophet Muhammad were passed down mouth to mouth for up to 200 years. About 840 CE (200 years after Muhammad died), the Hadiths were put into written manuscripts and evaluated by Muslim scholars. At that time, most of the Hadith (about 500,000) were rejected as stories created by Muslims many years after Muhammad had died. But many Hadiths (about 15,000) were accepted as true at that time and were recorded on paper.

Words passed down by mouth will naturally change with time. Most religions have both oral tradition and written documents, such as Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. When the oral tradition is written down, it can be evaluated for prophecy based on the date the documents were written.

In contrast to oral tradition only, recorded words freeze a prophecy in time-space so it can be evaluated using the Einstein Method. Very simply, to verify if a prophecy is true or not requires that the prophetic words be frozen in time before the event occurs.

Another very important issue is to ask, "Can the written words be understood?"

If a prophecy is extremely vague, then is it truly prophetic? Examples of vague prophecy are the prophecies of Nostradamus and the writings of Astrologers. Astrology does portray itself as being prophetic. However, the words are presented in an unclear style. The words written by Nostradamus are very similar to astrological predictions since they are most often given as vague poetry. People who follow and believe in Nostradamus make his words fit whatever they wish. Yet, some Nostradamus predictions are very specific about future human events. The prophecies of Nostradamus will be added to this web site in the future. Specific prophecy can be evaluated using the Einstein Method.


Holy Books without Prophecy

What about a religion that has a written code but does not have any prophecy? There are three possibilities to consider:

  1. It is logical to conclude that a religion without prophecy appears to be the product of creative human imagination. No one will ever be able to know if that religion came from outside time-space. If this is the case, then a religion without prophecy requires "blind faith" for people to follow. However, this may be considered acceptable to its followers.
  2. In the event that it can be shown that no religion successfully foretells future human events, then no one will ever be able to verify the words came from outside time-space. In that case, all religions will be based on "blind faith" alone.
  3. Finally, what if a religion with a written code does consistently and accurately foretell future human events, showing the words appear to come from outside time-space? Then the followers of the non-prophetic religions should analyze the viewpoints of this religion that has been validated as coming from outside time-space. The two faiths should be compared with an open mind and heart. Since humans cannot foretell the future, a religion that does consistently foretell the future (successfully) will appear to be the product of a Super Intelligence from outside time-space.
  4. In the event that people are not willing to compare their faith to other beliefs
    (due to prejudice or preconceived ideas), then they should consider the Socratic Dictum.

    Socratic Dictum

    "The unexamined life is not worth living"

    Just as Important

    "The unexamined faith is not worth believing"

    If a person of faith has never doubted their beliefs, then that person could potentially be the subject of what is commonly termed: "brainwashed". To take the analogy further, the "best case "is that such a person just happens to be lucky and the "worst case" being that such a person is highly deceived.

    If a specific religion cannot withstand doubt and questioning, then is it worth following?

    Consider the following tragic cases:

    In 1978, more than 900 people were destroyed by blindly following Jim Jones, a man of cultic faith. Jim Jones had everyone drink a fatal dose of toxic Kool-Aid. This has commonly been called the Jones town massacre.

    In 1997, a religious group of 47 people called the Heavenís Gate Cult committed mass suicide in Los Angeles. These people believed that an alien space ship was flying behind the Hale-Bopp comet. These people blindly followed their leader into oblivion.

    This brings to question the practice of suicide in the Islamic world by radical fundamentalists. Destroying oneself and unknowing innocent people in the name of Allah depends on a radical view of the Qur'an, Have Muslims truly investigated their beliefs? Most Muslims believe they have looked deep. However, can Islam show that it has words from outside time-space? Islam does have prophetic verses that permit investigation by the Einstein Method. This will not be done on this website. But if you want to find out more, please obtain a copy of the book, "Gabriel's Faces" at your local bookstore: ISBN 0-9640404-2-5.


Guideline #2: Verifying when the "Holy Book" was written:

We must be able to find out when the documents were written so that any prophecy can be dated. A good example is the now famous "Dead Sea Scrolls" that were discovered in 1947 to 1956. The Dead Sea Scroll sect is called Qumran and it had libraries with all the Old Testament books except for the book of Esther. In 68 CE, Roman armies destroyed the Qumran community. Therefore, all the books found in the Dead Sea Scrolls library were written (OR copied) before 68 CE. People of every persuasion will agree with the fact that the Old Testament documents were written long before 68 CE.


Guideline #3: Verifying that the "Holy Book" has not been changed:

We must be able to verify that the words have not been changed from the time they were originally made. If a holy book does have prophecy that can be proven, is it possible that it was changed after the events occurred?

To avoid this problem, we must be able to verify that no changes have been written into the holy book after the prophecy occurred. Otherwise, logic tells us that the words are about past events only - meaning the words are from inside time-space (Not from the Creator(s))


Guideline #4: Self-Fulfilling Prophetic Events (by the Prophet):

If a religion has prophetic events that can be fulfilled by the person making the prediction, then it is a self-fulfilling prophecy. By logic alone, such predictions are not prophetic verses.

All intellectually honest people will conclude that events that can be self-fulfilled are not prophetic. There is absolutely no reason to believe that such words come from outside time-space. To take the opposite viewpoint is contrary to logic and reason.


Guideline #5: Self-fulfilling Prophetic Events (by the Prophetís Followers):

If a religion has prophetic events that can be fulfilled by the followers of the prophet (especially after the prophet has died), then it is a self-fulfilling prophecy. By logic alone, such predictions are not prophetic verses.

To support these conclusions, consider examples from both the Christian faith and the Islamic faith. Both religions teach that they will evangelize the entire world. Christians hold beliefs that the whole world will be told about Jesus before the 2nd coming of Jesus. Muslims tend to go to the next level and believe that Islam will actually conquer all other religions, eventually leading to the conversion of the entire world to their belief and way of life.

Consider the Christian viewpoint based on Jesus prophecy that the gospel will be preached worldwide.

"This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14).

Another prophecy is found at the end of Matthew and is called the Great Commission.

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:18-20).

So Christians are self-fulfilling Jesusí prophecies based on their beliefs and following Jesusí command to tell all people about the Messiah and eternal salvation.

Along the same line, Muslims believe that their religion will conquer all other religions. Fundamentalist Muslims have taken up the sword in this cause as currently witnessed around the world. Moderate Muslims continue reaching out to people asking them to become Muslims.

"He it is Who sent His Messenger with the guidance and the true religion, that He may make it overcome the religions, all of them, though the polytheists may be averse" (Surah 61:9).

He it is Who sent His Messenger with the guidance and the true religion that He may make it prevail over all the religions; and Allah is enough for a witness" (Surah 48:27-28).

So Muslims are self-fulfilling Muhammadís prophecies based on their beliefs that Islam will eventually conquer all other religions.

Due to the concept that self-fulfilling prophecies are truly not prophetic, both the Muslim and Christian prophecy about spreading their views worldwide cannot truly be evaluated as prophecy using the Einstein Method. All intellectually honest people will conclude that events self-fulfilled by the prophetís followers are not truly prophetic. To take the opposite viewpoint is contrary to logic and reason.


Guideline #6: Ultimate Test for a Prophet: Prophecies will be fulfilled AFTER the prophet is dead.:

Events that occur during a prophetís lifetime are suspect as being prophetic for several reasons.

  1. First, there is a probability that the prophecy has a 50% or higher chance (i.e. even as high as a 99% chance) of a successful outcome because the prophet lives so close to the event. People should ask, "If the prophecy is about the political environment (or other current event), is it self-evident what the outcome will be?"
  2. For example, many forecasters took the position that when the US military invaded Iraq in March 2003 the US military would win the war and remove Saddam Hussein from power. The reason for that conclusion was the fact that US military weaponry had advanced significantly since the 1991 Iraqi conflict. In addition, people groups within Iraq were tired of their dictator. In general, we can conclude that prophetic words about current events by a living prophet are suspect of coming from outside time-space.

  3. Second, prophetic forecasts made while someone is alive are usually based on their environment. For example, most prophecies are based on the prophetís close associates, local cities or nations, and other known items. It is only natural to make forecasts about known things. But can the prophet foretell future events several hundred years from today or perhaps a thousand years or more after the prophet has lived? What if we discover a prophet that foretells events that would have been completely foreign to them? In that event, we can discern that the prophet has truly received words from outside time-space.
  4. All will conclude that the ultimate test of a prophet is being able to forecast events accurately and consistently after the prophet has died. If we find a prophet that consistently and accurately foretells human events long after the prophet has died, then those words appear to be from outside time-space. That personís viewpoint will lead us to spiritual truths about the purpose of life itself. To chose the opposite is contrary to logic and reason.


Guideline #7: Can the Prophecy be Verified to be Factual:

There are several aspects to verifying a prophecy.

First, to validate a prophecy requires that it can be dated as well as documented. Multiple documentation is preferred. If only a single piece of evidence is available, then the credibility of that evidence must be examined. If the religion alone offers proof, then it is highly suspect.

Second, if a prophetic event requires faith to accept, should it be considered prophetic? There are two possibilities as follows:

  • If the event is related to the religion and it cannot be documented, then it cannot be considered to be prophetic. In that case, the event is simply an article of faith that cannot be proven or accepted as fact. For example, this guideline will not permit us to verify that Mary was a virgin when she conceived Jesus for verifying Christianity, which is often quoted by Christians as a prophecy from Isaiah 7:14. ["Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel {God is with us}" (Isaiah 7:14).] Nor will it permit us to verify that Muhammad actually had visitations from the Archangel Gabriel to review the Qur'an each year. These ideas are beliefs that require "blind faith." [Please note, this approach does not invalidate these two specific beliefs held by Christians or Muslims].
  • If the event is related to the religion and the event can be documented, then it will be considered to be prophetic. Especially if the event has multiple documentation. Since it is a documented event, it does not require faith to examine the documents.


The seven Einstein Method guidelines lay the foundation for detecting words from outside time-space. To make the idea as simple as possible we ask, "What is the Einstein Method in a nutshell?"

The Einstein Method

Seeks to find religions that claim to foretell the future due to receiving words from outside time-space. (from God). After finding these types of messages, they can be analyzed using available evidence. How can we know the words come from outside time-space?

.

Seven guidelines must be met to begin to give support that the message is from outside time-space (from God).

Can we have confidence in the evidence?

Math based tools are used to calculate "IF" we can have confidence that we appear to be hearing from God.


How the Einstein Method will be presented on this web page

When a prophecy is presented, the seven guidelines will be positioned on the left side of the screen. Next to each guideline will appear a "yes" or "no" to indicate whether the guideline has been met. By placing your mouse cursor over a guideline, supporting evidence will appear in the upper left corner of your computer monitor. Clicking on the guideline will bring up a quick pop-up with more information.

We are now ready to investigate religions using the Einstein Method.
