Another question that occurred to me (several actually) is
1. Why would God encode mathematical constants that would be found only
in the 21st century in His word?
Don't you think He would authenticate His word in a way that might be
discovered earlier?
2. Why would He authenticate His word in ways that would appeal only to
people who dig through
the text looking for obscure patterns that have nothing to do with the
actual message of Scripture?
