It isn't odd or even either.

So if you used your arm to measures with how many decimal places do you think you would use?

<quoted text>No, in that case, you are off by more than a cubit. Almost a cubit and a half.
Not at all

The circumference measures around the outside and the diameter measured across the inside. One would not be off at all.

In the meantime, pi remains an unchanged constant.

I already know more about infinity than any of the experts on this nuttwagon.

I did my research. You try some, Tinkling.

"The infinite is nowhere to be found in reality. It neither exists in nature nor provides a legitimate basis for rational thought. The role that remains for the infinite is solely that of an idea." -David Hilbert

"The notion of a completed infinity doesn't belong in mathematics; infinity is merely a figure of speech which helps us talk about limits" -German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss

"Actual infinity does not exist. What we call infinite is only the endless possibility of creating new objects no matter how many exist already" -French mathematician Henri Poincare

<quoted text>Here's a question. Suppose you have that the diameter is 10 cubits. Suppose you want the circumference to be accurate to the nearest cubit. How accurate of a value of pi do you need to do this?
Using both measurements to the outside of the vat?

And need I show more proof that believers have a lower IQ?
I guess believing the ancient scribblings of desert nomads who sacrificed goats while chanting to the sky does that to a person.

I see using the lower case 'g' as simply pointing out that singular gods are in the same category as pagan gods. They are all mythological.
Just like infinite decimal expansions and infinite points on a circle.

But you believe in those.

It says a lot about you fundies that you're more offended by a lower case "g" than you are by the fact that you worship "a murderous, vindictive, small-minded tyrant."
LOL

inÃ‚Â·teÃ‚Â·ger\Ã‹Âˆin-ti-jÃ‰Â™r\
noun
1 : any of the natural numbers, the negatives of these numbers, or zero

natural number
noun
1 : the number 1 or any number (as 3, 12, 432) obtained by adding 1 to it one or more times : a positive integer
2 : any of the positive integers together with 0 : a nonnegative integer

Any questions?

It is also not a number.
And it's not odd or even.

How ever if you round off Pi to a whole number it is 3.

<quoted text>4 *(1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 + 1/9 ...) is not pi.

It is two whole numbers, four fractions, an asterisk, open and close parentheses, three dots, two plus symbols, and two minus symbols.

There is nothing infinite there. It is very finite, proven by my being able to place it on this page in increments larger than zero.

(Something infinite would take a lot longer to write.)

This is Buck School. Welcome back.
Exactly.

In that case it is represented by the number "3".

But pi is not a number.
