How does math fail in calculating circles?

Well, pi is an irrational number. So if you want a perfect accounting of anything that's based upon an irrational number, such as a circle, you can't really get it. It's a pretty interesting concept if you think about it since we can instantly recognize circles.

Yes it does separate you from God (reality) and family. You ignored my point in my previous post.

In a coherent worldview, there is no separation of long-term emotions and understanding. Hating evil is both logical and practical. I have learned that it is much better to screw over Americans than to trust them, and this has benefited me greatly.

A perfect accounting of the area of a circle:

A = πrē

That pi is an irrational number is not a reflection on mathematics, it is a representation of the real world. Something some people seem to have a hard time grasping.

I suppose you supported that idiot politician that wanted to pass a law that pi be made equal to 3?







(It was a joke story.)

Is this a primary characteristic of a Biblic Jew, screweth thy neighbor 'lest thy neighbor screweth you first?

Americans are not my neighbors. If you will remember, Jesus was asked who is my neighbor and he answered that the one who would help you is your neighbor. Americans would never help me, so they are not my neighbors.

No math does not separate me from God and family. Developing our understanding of math does not kill our hearts and we can use math to benefit our families and also increase our awe of divinity.
