Pi Day: the 14th day of the 3rd month, at about the 15th hour, which would be 3 PM…
Consider 1 Kings 7:23
And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from one brim to the other: it was round all about, and its height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did circle it round about.
What’s the value of pi here? Just plain old 3.0. Apparently the Babylonians used pi = 3 1/8 and the Egyptians used pi = 3 13/81. Although nobody seems to know how the Babylonians and the Egyptians got as close as they did, it is even more mystifying that the ancient Israelites were so far off! I mean, you’ve gotta know that it isn’t exact.
