Faith Based Mathematics

True Bible believers need to contact your Legislators and demand math classes stop teaching the pagan mathematics that teach the value of Pi is 3.1415..... and return to the true Christian mathematics that teach the value of Pi as exactly 3! (1 Kings 7:23) Yes, Pi being equal to 22/7 is as false as evolution and the Big Bang!

Uhh... 22/7 is not exactly

Uhh... 22/7 is not exactly 3. It's close to Pi, but still very far off Smiling

Your point stands though... "we don't need them dang trigernometric doohickeys"

They actually teach in most

They actually teach in most High school or lower level college courses to use either 3.14 or 22/7. At least they did way back in the day when I was in school before they generally let you use calculators with a pi button.

Yeah, 22/7 is a common rough

Yeah, 22/7 is a common rough estimation for pi when precision isn't necessary. It's precise to two decimal places, which for basic calculations is usually sufficient.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!
- Eric Idle, from The Galaxy Song

I'm still shocked that the

I'm still shocked that the xian said that pi is a geometric series and science will prove that 3.141..... = 3.00 = 3

wow... just... wow.

Another aspect of faith

Another aspect of faith based mathematics (or maybe faith based calendars?) is that from late Friday afternoon until dawn Sunday morning is 3 days and 3 nights (Matthew 12:40)

How stupid exactly were the people who wrote the Bible? Head Bash
