  • The Bible asserts that π equals 3:
    "He made the Sea of cast metal, circular in shape, measuring ten cubits from rim to rim and five cubits high. It took a line of thirty cubits to measure around it." 1 Kings 7:23 (NIV).
    As a mathematician its clear to me that the Bible author was referring to non Euclidean geometry 🙂
