This is crazy, Genesis 1:1 combine the letters and multiply the product of the letters,then divide it by the number of words and multiply the product of words, it equals Pie!!, 3.146, wow!

Do the same with John 1:1 and you get 2.7183, the number of Euler's Number. Holy crap!

This is honestly life-changing

Pi, rounded to three decimals, is 3.142.

Not that such minor details matter to the true believer.

So quick lesson on mathematical terms : a number that has many digits trailing the decimal point is precise. When you round numbers up or down to significant figures, that number loses precision.

Pi with 100 trailing digits is more precise than Pi with 3 trailing digits.

Apart from this, accuracy is a concept that describes how correct a number is.

Hence 3.146 is both unprecise and unaccurate

Plato determined Pi to be 3.146. Isaac Newton, considered to be calculus' father, was able to calculate Pi to 16 decimal points.

1 kings 7:23 makes it quite clear pi is exactly 3.

And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

Second, we should consider the matter of significant figures. On a physics test, if a circle is said to have a diameter of 10 feet and the student is asked to compute the circumference, the correct answer is 30 feet—not 31 feet. The reason 31 feet is an incorrect answer is because it implies a precision that is unwarranted by the given information. The value 10 feet indicates that the diameter has been rounded. Perhaps it has been rounded up from the exact value of 9.5 feet, in which case the exact circumference would be 29.845. . . feet—which rounds up to 30 feet.
Third, we should consider 1 Kings 7:26, which states that this cylindrical vessel “was a handbreadth thick.” Since the diameter is given from “brim to brim” (verse 23), the 10 cubits is referring to the outer diameter (which includes the handbreadth thickness of the rim). However, the circumference may well refer to the inner circle (as this is more representative of the pool of water inside the cylinder), which excludes the handbreadth. So, even if we take the outer diameter to be exactly 10 cubits, the inner diameter would be smaller. A handbreadth is roughly 1/4 of a cubit; so, the inner diameter would be 10 cubits - (0.25 x 2) cubits = 9.50 cubits. This means the inner circumference would be 29.845. . . cubits, which rounds up to 30 cubits (not 31 cubits).
In conclusion, the accusation that the Bible has made a mathematical mistake is totally without merit. The biblical answer is spot on, given the information presented and the precision of the numbers in question.

Well, you can believe that if you like, but I believe what the bible says.   I reckon fractions are the work of satan, like telephones.

Kind of reminds me of "the bible code" that was popular a few decades ago. I don't really think scripture is intended to be used like this.

30 instead of 31 'and a bit' is an error of only about 3%.... IMO it's probably the most accurate thing in the whole bible!

I don't do hidden stuff in the Bible.  I remember the fuss over 'ELS' a while back. It sold few books, I suppose.

This is such a desperate stretch that I can't believe even Answers in Genesis would offer it as a serious explanation. Sometimes I wonder if the apologetics there actually believe their own explanations.

No physics or geometry test worth its salt would reject 31 as an incorrect answer, certainly not because of some precision the test-taker is supposed to infer. The worst part is AIC says 30 is the correct answer and 31 is incorrect because "perhaps it has been rounded up from the exact value of 9.5 feet." Well guess what? It could just as easily have been rounded down from the exact value of 10.49 feet, in which case 33 feet would be the correct answer. There is no way to know from the question. Saying 30 is correct and not 31 because "perhaps it was rounded up" is laughable.

When biblical inerrancy is your axiom, it's amazing the mental gymnastics you must perform.
