  3. -0.8090169...... (assuming God works in degrees.)

  4. My Casio puked when I asked for the answer radians..
    But I expect there is some more esoteric unit.. cubits and tribits maybe? (trigbits)

    My fx-82MS needed its mode button pressed twice before it would offer me the choice.

    Armies liked the mil and the grad, though various armies defined them differently

    work in base-10.

    John Larkin's grasp of theology is roughly equivalent to his grasp of climate science, but he has a point to the extent that 666 in octal is a different number than 666 in decimal and different again from 666 in hexadecimal,not that the author of Revelations is likely to have had anything but the decimal number system in mind.

    The Bible puts pi at 3 even which makes the sine of the beast 0.

    1 Kings 7:23 And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to
    the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and
    a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

    my company in Australia, if you weren't such a total jerk.

    Joerg has just given you a free - and private - endorsement.

    "I could not imagine having a better boss if I worked there."

    I suspect that I've had one or two better bosses than Joerg has managed, somy imagination may be a little more ambitious. You do have an unfortunate tendency to post stuff that shows you up in a bad light, and this would seem to be one of those occasions, and this time you did it without any help from Jim Thompson.

    She wouldn't take it seriously, any more than I do. John's idea of a "valuable function" would probably mean organising regular deliveries of Campos coffee to his business - which would make him and his employees a lot happier,if they happened to like real coffee (which most Americans don't - Starbucks didn't do well in Australia).

    You've trotted out that gibe N times in the past, and it's a crock.

    A cubit is the distance from your fingertips to your elbow, which makes
    it about as precise a measurement unit as a pace. And just to be
    ridiculous and import the modern idea of significant digits into a 3,000
    year old description: If you think of the circumference as 30.0000... of
    these imprecise cubits, the diameter would be 4.78 of them, i.e. 5
    cubits when correctly rounded to one digit as quoted.

    There are certainly some puzzlers in Scripture, but this is not one of them.

    Cheers

    Well, humph!
    Take a bunch of men right out of church and line up their feet
    (straight line), "measure" the length and divide by the number of men,
    and you have the PRECISE (original) definition of a foot.
    Cubit, my foot!

    A Qubit is the length of a dead and/or alive cat.

    sqrt(2)/2 says I'm right, sqrt(2)/2 says I'm wrong.

  16. Maybe he was using Sumerian numbers (base 6) and had overflows everywhere?

    Doubtful. Putting a cat in a box has unit probability of making a very
    unhappy cat.
