This whole allegation that the Bible is wrong about Pi is stupid. "3" is
correct as far as it goes, and throughout the whole passage, there is no
to use fractional units. No one is stupid enough to believe that the ratio
the circumference of a circle to the diameter is precisely 3 after
measuring, however,
some people are apparently too stupid to recognize the people don't always
an infinite string of digits to get pi precisely right. Besides, this is a
world" example, the artificial object was not a perfect circle nor is there
requirement that the measurement of the diameter and circumference be based
on the
same perfect circle. For example, the diameter could have been measured
from the
outside of the rim while the circumference measured under the rim.
