A prodigious mind behind the numbers !!!

These links will leave something unprecedented.

Think at least in the survey

Thank you

I do not get it.
Its just some nice fooling around with numbers.

i think the secret is to hit your head against a wall for several minutes then squint as you read it - instant religious significance

The mystical disappearance of the H has me believing. Can't wait for mystical reding and writig.
Amazing!

the bible claims that pi is 3

1 Kings 7:24

so much for that

Give me a break! How old is the Bible? 1 Kings has been estimated as being written about 2500 years ago. What did the ancient Greeks estimate pi as being? 22/7, or something like. Surely that means they were a bunch of total numbskulls, using your (il)logic!

This is from the font of all wiki-knowledge:

It is often claimed that the Bible states that π is exactly 3, based on a passage in 1 Kings 7:23 (ca. 971-852 BCE) and 2 Chronicles 4:2 giving measurements for the round basin located in front of the Temple in Jerusalem as having a diameter of 10 cubits and a circumference of 30 cubits. Rabbi Nehemiah explained this in his Mishnat ha-Middot (the earliest known Hebrew text on geometry, ca. 150 CE) by saying that the diameter was measured from the outside of the brim while the circumference was measured along the inner rim. The stated dimensions would be exact if measured this way on a brim about four inches wide.
This is disputed, however, and other explanations have been offered, including that the measurements are given in round numbers (as the Hebrews tended to round off measurements to whole numbers), that cubits were not exact units, or that the basin may not have been exactly circular, or that the brim was wider than the bowl itself. Many reconstructions of the basin show a wider brim extending outward from the bowl itself by several inches. [4]

actually i read this wikipedia article too to find the right book and chapter for the quote.
i did not mean to describe the ancient hebrew mathematicians as "numb skulls".
rather i posted a futile stupid bit of information to bring out how i regard this topic.

actually 3 is a great approximation for pi! so kudos to ancient hebrew mathematicians! but shame on fooling around with numbers and calling it a proof for anything.

42 is the answer...

but not the proof.....

if you had proof it wouldn't be called faith
