Once again showing you don't understand the concept of a decimal expansion. Yes, 3.1416 is a much closer approximation of pi than 3 is. Both are approximations. neither is equal to pi. You don't measure the distance between numbers based on the number of decimal places in their expansion.

Mathematically speaking sense neither is PI and both have the same number of digits short of PI one is not closer then the other if you use the finish line approach to the problem. No matter how many digits are listed the two cars are side by side and the finish line along way out in front of both.

Irrelevant. Pi is a number between 3 and 4. It is also between 3.1 and 3.2. It is also between 3.14 and 3.15. It is also between 3.1415926 and 3.1415927.

So, 3.1415926 is a much better approximation of pi than, say, 3 is. More precisely, 3 is off by about 5% and 3.1415926 is off by about .000002%.

"3.1415926 is a much better"

Out of billions and billions of digits you really think this is more like Pi?

Fool.

So there is flooding going on, "still" on Mar? Or you're making this SH!t up?

Yes, I think that 3.1415926 is a closer approximation to pi than 3 is. In fact, the error when you approximate pi by 3.1415926 is less than .00000006 and the error when you approximate by 3 is *more* than .14. And, in case you have trouble with this concept,.00000006 is smaller than .14. So, yes, 3.1415926 is closer to pi than 3 is.

Fool.

While true, this is a pretty broad range. Pi is also a number between 3.1 and 3.2. And between 3.141592635389793 and 3.141592653589794. Either one of the last two differs from pi by less than .000000000000001.

No living human has ever seen a flood as described in the Bible but that doesn't stop many of them asserting that it really happened.

Neither does it stop them pointing to a geological feature like the Grand Canyon and claiming it is evidence of the same flood.

I guess you don't do that.

Good for you.

"Godbot" comments do no credit to the intelligence of atheists but may reveal the tone of the poster ?
