I really like Bart D. Ehrman, I have many of his books! Thanks for the link

Well, I am not a fanatic believer in the mathematical number patterns, but I do believe in it though. It is mysterious to me and strange. I have checked sura 1 of Quran and the number of letters in it per verse is as follows:
7. 44 (note - until the verse speaks about those who are astray or provoked God's anger it is 19 letters)
I am sure there is some kind of complex mathematical system in Quran, but it is not only limited to 19, it is more vast than that.
God seems to have number combinations for all sorts of things.
Anyway, I do spend some hour from time to time thinking about this system, but it is not what I base my Faith on. I see it merely as a Faith-booster, ie another sign that God is really real.
And I do not believe that Dr. Khalifa was a Messenger of God. And I do not follow his teachings nor his counts of 19 in Quran. I reproduce all testing on my own here at home if I do something.
In the end, I spend only a tiny per cent of my time on the mathematical pattern. Reading Quran and the Bible is what I do most of the time.
God bless you
I wonder how you can be a heretic if you believe in God, eternal life and try to be a righteous person to the best of your ability.
