# Thread: Two pi or not Two pi

1. ## Two pi or not Two pi

Apparently today is the second World Tau Day. Tau being an alledged replacement for that constant that we all know, pi. The Tau manifesto released exactly 1 year ago is available here, http://tauday.com/

And for Scott:-

Both the Ancient Egyptians and the Babylonians are known to have known the value of pi with about a 1 per cent error, and an approximation appears in the Bible.
If this is true, is that approximation an example of an error in the Bible?

The Bible never gives a value for pi, but it does give measurements for a vessel, circular that seem to give a value of pi = 3. It is explained in this link, http://www.purplemath.com/modules/bibleval.htm There are plenty of other links if you do a search in google.

7. See Does the Bible say pi equals 3.0? Check out this maths forum where mathematics Ph.D.s take apart an atheopath's attack on the Bible on this issue.
