Not only that, it's incorrect. The ancient world was aware of "pi" as 22/7 and it shows up in the Rhind Mathematical papyrus. They had a way of doing brute force calculations with that. The Sumerians also used it:

I've just started to believe in the expanding earth theory but I see that event as a means to get land above the Deluge waters.
The 22/7 ratio I believe is an astronomical secret.

You might wonder if they are skycrapers or bridges? No those are built to last about 100 years.
We are building warning markers over our nuclear waste dumps. To last tens of thousands of years.
So far no one has had the bright idea to remove the pyramids stone by stone. If they did, I wonder what surprise they might discover.
The warning concept is worthy of consideration. I hope we never find out.

Something to think about in regards to 22/7.
9-11 is really 7-11. September is the 7th month, hence Sept. The two months of January and February were added to the calender around 100 A.D., so if 9-11 was done as some sort of Ancients sacrifice, everyone is looking for something to corrolate to 9-11, but they are looking in the wrong place, because to the ancients it would of been 7-11.

Harte: The Egyptians had two measures, hands (or fingers) and cubits….
SC: The AE had a number of intermediary measures from their base unit of digits and palms, to wit:
4 digits equaled a palm, 5 digits a hand.
12 digits, or three palms, equaled a small span.
14 digits, or one-half a cubit, equaled a large span.
16 digits, or 4 palms, made 1 t'ser.
24 digits, or 6 palms, were a small cubit.
28 digits made a Royal Cubit.

The meaning of the first and greatest sphinx in Egypt near the great pyramids, and the linked meaning of the great pyramid.
Here is the meaning for those who will hear:
The sphinx is the representation of immortality. The original sphinx was the head of a woman and the body of a lion. The head is now carved down to represent a pharaoh, but it was not always so.
Originally posted by Jim ScottThe meaning of the head of a woman and the body of a lion:
The head of the woman represents the part of the zodiac called Virgo.
The body of the lion represents the part of the zodiac called Leo.
Virgo and Leo, when connected, create the eternal round of the zodiac.
Smyth also confirmed the value of Pi being built into the pyramids dimensions.
Squaring the Circle
Methods to approximate the area of a given circle with a square were known already to Babylonian mathematicians. The Egyptian Rhind papyrus of 1800BC gives the area of a circle as (64/81) d 2, where d is the diameter of the circle, and π approximated to 255/81, a number that appears in the older Moscow Mathematical Papyrus, and used for volume approximations (ie hekat (volume unit)). Indian mathematicians also found an approximate method, though less accurate, documented in the Sulba Sutras.[1] Archimedes showed that the value of π lay between 3 + 1/7 (approximately 3.1429) and 3 + 10/71 (approximately 3.1408). See Numerical approximations of π for more on the history.

Pi appears nowhere in any dimension of any pyramid on Earth. Smyth invented the piramid-inch in order to "find" (actually create) all of these correlations, like the distance to the Sun, et al.

It makes sense that if they had a message for some far off future generation (perhaps us) it would be encoded in the design and dimensions of the structure.

My friend, the sphinx predates history (estimated date of construction as early as 800,000 BC), as obviously do the stars.

The zodiac also predates history across the world in many cultures.

1 The 3 Giza Pyramids were built probably around 12.5k yrs. ago in agreement with Edgar Casey and others.
Why- Schock's water erosion findings, no hieroglyphs, superior craftsmanship, Islamic religion says creation was 6k yrs. ago.
Most Egyptologists are Muslim and won't dispute their religion.
Khufu probably only repaired and changed some things like re-carving the Sphinx head. It's obviously too small and much newer looking than the body. It should look older, being exposed to elements, when the body was buried in sand.
2 Being so old means Atlanteans were envolved. Most info. says Thoth-Hermes-Enoch (same soul) was the architect.
3 You can't cut granite with copper tools.
4 Casey said it took 100 yrs. to build the Great Pyramid.
5 Casey said the entrance to the connecting chambers of the Atlantean Hall of Records was near the right paw of the Sphinx.

the area of squares are directly proportional to their perimeters. a circle with the same perimetre will contain the same area. so yes.
