As per Albert Einstein "Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous" Apparently when it came to the literary works attributed to William Shakespeare - someone was very anonymous.
Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564 and died on April 23, 1616. Most of Shakespeare is known to us through the first folio published in 1623. 23+23=46. He was 46 years old in the year 1610 (1+6+1+0=8, 8=2 [3rd Power]), the year the King James Bible was published.
Shakespeare in the Bible ?
Psalm 46 in that translation has as its 46th word "shake" while the 46th word from the end is "spear." The Bible Code
Shakespeare and Cervantes, considered his equal if not literary superior during their lifetimes both died on April 23rd - St. Georges Day - A Holiday in Britain.
The Shakespeare coincidence may quite possibly be explained by one of English Histories most profound unexplained mysteries. Many theories have been put forth arguing that someone other than William Shakespeare wrote the plays and poems published under his name. And one favored candidate as the Ghost writer is Francis Bacon.
The printing of the King James Bible , sponsored by King James I of England also involved Bacon. Bacon, like other queer geniuses before him, most notably DaVinci, was a perverted genius and is known to have been involved in producing the King James version of the Bible. It is quite possible that the coincidence of Psalm 46 is an engineered coincidence.
Another fringe theory is that William Shakespeare is actually Sheikh Zubair from Basra, Iraq. One unexplainable fact about Shakespeare’s works is his profound knowledge of Middle Eastern culture, history, language and politics, knowledge which seems to have alluded other Westerners. The theory states that 'Shakespeare' was a European corruption of the Arabic name and title Sheikh Zubair.
Shakespeare’s writings also resemble the teachings of the Islamic sufi sect See: Was Shakespeare really a poet/ playwright named Sheikh Zubair?
