EtymologyThe term "theomatics" was coined by Del Washburn in 1976 as a combination of "Θεός" ("God") and "mathematics". Washburn wrote three books about theomatics and created a website espousing the hypothesis.
MethodologyTheomatics is not the same thing as Bible code; it uses an entirely different technique. The Bible code (also called ELS for Equidistant Letter Sequences) uses a letter skipping technique. Theomatics, on the other hand, is based on gematria and isopsephia, systems which assign numerical values to letters in the ancient Hebrew/Aramaic and Greek alphabets.
ControversyAn analysis and criticism of theomatics has been published by Tim Hayes, previously under the pseudonym "A. B. Leever". 
A German statistician, Kurt Fettelschoss, published an analysis that found that "The observed quantity of theomatic hits is significantly not random". A response to the findings were posted by Tim Hayes.
An analysis by Russell Glasser, entitled "Theomatics Debunked", shows the same phenomenon in a secular text.
Washburn's website has a page entitled "Scientific Proof" which discusses and responds to potential arguments against theomatics.
