Bible Codes

I found a book recently titled "Bible Codes." The bible code system is set up so that all of the letters in the Torah are lined up without spaces and then words are looked for to tell the future or past events (in the book it showed how Rabin's assasination and the Holocaust were both found through this system). This seaching is mainly done by computers. What is the legitimacy of this? Are there any posek's who have addressed this issue? It seems to be getting more popular and I wasn't sure what to think about it. I know that we learn that everything can be found in the Torah. Is this what that teaching is refering to?

(I apoligize if this is in the wrong section. I wasn't sure which sections was right to put this so I thought this might be the right place.)

It is very conterversial - even from a scientific point of view. A google search will probably turn up information on both sides of the issue.

I recall that Leibel Groner says that the Rebbe said of Bible codes that "this is not our way."
