Nothing is Pi, and nothing you can write can be closer to the real number that is Pi then 3. This can be proven.
Wrong. The number 3.14 is closer to pi than 3 is. The number 3.141592635389793 is even closer. The difference between pi and 3 is more than .14. The difference between pi and 3.14 is less than .002.

List Pi or at least the number you use when calculating. Not too tough.
By some of the things you say, you clearly don't understand what a decimal expansion means. It is not a list. When you ask to 'list pi', you are showing a great deal of ignorance of basic mathematics.

The smallest strictly positive root of the sine function.

Alternatively, twice the smallest positive root of the cosine function.

Alternatively, 4 times the integral from 0 to 1 of sqrt(1-x^2).

Feel free to list the number you use for Pi. Lets show off your incredible high IQ.
Once again, when you ask to 'list' a number, you are showing a lack of understanding. For example, you don't 'list' 1/3. The decimal expansion of 1/3 is .333.. with the 3 repeating. This gives a well-defined number. The decimal expansion *means* a certain infinite sum, in this case .3+.03+.003+.0003+... The numbers .3 .33 .333 and .3333 are *approximations* to that infinite sum.

In exactly the same way, pi can be written as an infinite sum
pi=4/1 - 4/3 + 4/5 - 4/7 + 4/9 - 4/11+-...

What approximation I use depends on how close I want my answer to be. If I only want a very general ball-park answer, I will approximate pi by 3 or 22/7. If I want a more accurate answer for use in physics, I would typically use 3.14159 (more accuracy is rarely needed in physics, but when it is I add on a few more decimal places). But *none* of these are 'listing' the number pi. None of them are exact answers. They are *all* approximations.

But this is irrelevant to the original question:

If a circular vat is 10 cubits in diameter, what is its circumference to the nearest cubit?

"Ã¢Â€Â˜There is no sight on earth which matches Grand Canyon. There are other canyons, other mountains and other rivers, but this Canyon excels all in scenic grandeur. Can any visitor, upon viewing Grand Canyon, grasp and appreciate the spectacle spread before him? The ornate sculpture work and the wealth of color are like no other landscape. They suggest an alien world. The scale is too outrageous. The sheer size and majesty engulf the intruder, surpassing his ability to take it in.Ã¢Â€Â™1
Anyone who has stood on the rim and looked down into Grand Canyon would readily echo these words as oneÃ¢Â€Â™s breath is taken away with the sheer magnitude of the spectacle. The Canyon stretches for 277 miles (446 kilometres) through northern Arizona, attains a depth of more than 1 mile (1.6 kilometres), and ranges from 4 miles (6.4 kilometres) to 18 miles (29 kilometres) in width. In the walls of the Canyon can be seen flat-lying rock layers that were once sand, mud or lime. Now hardened, they look like pages of a giant book as they stretch uniformly right through the Canyon and underneath the plateau country to the north and south and deeper to the east."

In the past, scientists largely dismissed Noah's flood as a myth, or a local flood, as it was believed that there could not have been enough rainwater to cover the world as high as Mount Everest. Recent discoveries in plate tectonics and crustal physics have shown that a much flatter Earth could have easily been flooded, with the resultant volcanic and geologic activity altering the land surface. These details have demolished the main argument against a global flood, but the tag of "local flood" has remained because atheists do not want any evidence that supports the existence of an Almighty, Creator/God.
