Agreed, but I doubt back in the day they would've known as much as we know now about Pi.

Just to make a quick reference for people, this is a quick list of some of the brilliant scientific "facts" (read blatant flasehoods) found in the Bible. Feel free to ask for explanations.
Plants existed before the Sun and Moon (Genesis 1:11-16)
Because you were there you know this
The Earth is created before the Sun (Genesis 1)
...actually, to just shorten this: The order of events in Genesis 1 is wrong
Once again you know this because you were there.
The Sun and Moon are set in a physical firmament above the Earth (Genesis 1:16-17)
You do not understand that words can mean different things depending upon context. Look up in Strong's
The Moon is a/produces light (Genesis 1:16, Isaiah 13:10)
This is true that it does not produce light which may be why a brown dwarf star is heading our way, wormwood.
Global flood (Genesis..mentioned several other times in later books)
It is a blind person that does not see that which is about you in the physical evidence of the Global flood, II Peter 3
Humanity at a time of civilization which would have enabled large scale construction projects shared a single language (Genesis 11)
I must be great to be so wise and old as you to have seen the truth.
Diverse language happened instantly rather than gradually (Genesis 11)
The Hebrew population in Egypt somehow goes from dozens to millions in a few hundred years. (Exodus)
Do be so blind it is possible for over 60 people to become that much in hundreds of years READ Man.
Hares and coneys are ruminants (Leviticus 11:5-6)
God's cure for lepers (Leviticus 14:2-52)
Snakebites are cured by a brass serpent on a pole (Numbers 21:8)
Some things are done by the supernatural, .....Kind of like how you believe that explosions have intelligence and they create life and physical laws.
Giants (way too many passages Numbers, Deuteronomy, 2 Samuel, Amos)
There are many to many to list examples of Giants in our recent past, ....Though that goes against evolution as smaller then bigger.
Dragons (Deuteronomy 32:33, Psalms 148:7)
Boy that is proof of not understanding, the word dragon was changed to Dinosaur in the 1800's.
The Sun apparently moves and can be made to stand still so that people can sneak attack others at night (Joshua 10:12-13)
The Earth has pillars...I guess instead of being hung it's placed.(1 Samuel 2:8, Job 9:6,26:11,38:4-6...actually, a lot of places)
Pi = 3(1 Kings 7:23, 2 Chronicles 4:2)
Either the Earth stopped rotating and moved backward a bit or the Sun moved backward on its own...well, we know what the Bible says about the relationship between the two. (2 Kings 20:11)
The Earth doesn't move.(1 Chronicles 16:30, Job 38:4-6, Psalms 93:1, 96:10...and a lot of other places where it mentions that the Earth is set on foundations)
So you never use figurative speech??
People think in their heart (Esther 6:6, Isaiah 10:7)
Ostriches are apparently entirely inattentive parents (Job 39:13-16)
The Sun moves around the Earth (Psalms 19:4-6)
Snails melt (Psalms 58:8)
The Earth has four corners (Isaiah 11:12, Ezekial 7:2)
Four corners of the earth
MeaningAll parts of the Earth. www.phrases.org.uk...
Lots of fantastical creatures used to exist including satyrs, cockatrices, fiery flying serpents, etc (Isaiah)
And your point is that since you were there to see all this you know for a fact that creatures that do not exist today did not exist then?????
The Earth is definitively flat (Daniel 4:10-11, 20)
Read before you talk, that verse is speaking of a Dream
The stars are tiny objects that can fall out of the sky and be stomped upon (Daniel 8:10)
regardless.....the bible still remains up there on the pop charts....good, bad indifferent...lies, or truths....something in it has our interest above all other books as a whole..
