The number **π** (pay/) is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. The encyclopedia tells us that earliest written approximations of π are found in Babylon and Egypt, 1900–1600 BC (with a value accurate to about 1%, 3.1250)

IS THE ENCYCLOPEDIA RIGHT?

“*And he cast the pool, ten cubits from edge to edge, round, five cubits deep, and the perimeter surrounding it thirty cubits.” (I Kings 7:23)*

The Bible is telling us that Pi is approximately 3—using words.

But the Bible consists of words, mathematical formulas and diagrams (for explanation see the Genesis One Code). Formulas: it turns out every letter and therefore every word and sentence in Hebrew has a numerical value. These values can be computed in many different ways (analogous to addition, logarithms, exponentials etc.). Using the mathematical values for words, we ascertain from the Biblical quote above that the ratio of circumference to diameter (i.e. Pi) is:

3 · 111/106 = 3.1415094… compared to today’s value for Pi of 3.14159265

Pictographs: every letter is a pictograph—combining different sections and meanings more complex analysis leads to a calculation for pi from letters and sentences in the Bible of:

355/113 = 3. 141592920 ….compared to pi of 3.14159265

Dear Daniel, I’m a young religion-and-science PhD. About 2.5 years ago I started making progress on what I thought was an exciting, new reconciliation of Genesis and science. I was later shocked to learn that important elements in my solution had previously been offered in Kabbalah. I’ve read your book, and I find your discussion intriguing. I have quite a number of questions, however. I’m also interested in becoming oriented with respect to Kabbalah. I wonder if you would consider corresponding. Best, Richard
