Non-Euchlidean.

Draw a circle on the face of the Earth; measure the circumference and diameter; the ratio is not equal to Pi,

Maybe the bible was written when the universe was still a tiny bubble universe. Proof of a young Earth. Checkmate atheists.

Feynman proposed antimatter is only ordinary stuff going backwards in time. Stenger logically extrapolated that to have two universes coming from the Big Bang , this one and one with the arrow of time going backwards.

Of course that can be extended further with non linear time, n dimensional time ....expansion can be along different arrows of time, not necessarily straight ones.

Which is why I think there isn’t anything. Nothing over infinity is the three body problem. You get quantum fluctuations, some of which become universes with life forms with opposable thumbs

You seem to be having a think about something. So, should I read that^ as "there is something"? :???:
Nothing over infinity is the three body problem.

... and now there is at least 5 somethings. Should I begin to worry about this problem? :ahrr:

How many universes is "some"? :ask:

How does any of this have any connection to the OP?

They categorised flying things as birds. They were not using the modern definitions used in cladistics.

This is not dissimilar to the method used by Linnaeus of categorising species by their appearance and function. This raised many anomalies and nowadays genetics is used as the basis for classification.

Who is "they" here?

Wouldn't be that speshul super-god would it?

As reliably reported by an unnamed observer?

All knowing and omniscient my arse.



And no, i have no issue with the approximate value of pi used. After all it is the work of uneducated and profoundly ignorant people just trying to make sense of their world. It's the hubris of then claiming it has some privileged truth position in the modern world i have issue with.

The people who wrote these verses, the audience they were writing for, the people who lived at that time....

Fenrir wrote:Wouldn't be that speshul super-god would it?

There is hardly anyone who think that God wrote the Bible in the way that Allah did.

Fenrir wrote:As reliably reported by an unnamed observer?

What was being reliably reported?

Fenrir wrote:All knowing and omniscient my arse.

God? I agree.

Fenrir wrote:And no, i have no issue with the approximate value of pi used.

Pi wasn't being approximated to. In fact, pi wasn't being used at all in these verses.

Fenrir wrote:After all it is the work of uneducated and profoundly ignorant people just trying to make sense of their world. It's the hubris of then claiming it has some privileged truth position in the modern world i have issue with.

People use approximate measurements for constructions all the time, even you I expect. I has nothing to do with being ignorant.

And yet, the pyramids have a squarish base, therefore aliens.

I am always amused by the "pyramids are laid out so precisely that modern surveyors can't replicate them!" bullshit. Yes, we can, with a cheap 1 minute transit and a steel tape.
