Default Re: Alabama Changes the Value of Pi

This looks more like an April Fool's joke than anything else...

Back then, measurements weren't as precise or accurate. So Solomon's temple was most likely slightly less than 10 cubits and slightly more than 30 cubits, but that's what they rounded to anyway. Either that or the "cubits" were different, like they usually were back then.

Wait. Thirty cubits in diameter, not in circumference. There's something wrong here...
