One of the most significant discoveries of my life, was the startling conclusion that the 66 books that we call the Bible, penned by 40 authors over thousands of years, is actually an integrated message system from outside our time domain. What I mean by that is, the more time you spend studying your Bible, the clearer it becomes that the author of the book is not bound by time, as evidenced by the fact that history is laid out in advance. So inexplicably is the historical future, anticipated discoveries and advanced technologies foretold, that critics have been forced to say that the Biblical accounts were written *after *the events described. Coupled with that, is the truth that, the more conversant you are with the frontiers of advanced Science, the more comfortably the Genesis account reads.

Today, we are going to consider the dimensionless constants of Pi and e and how each was anticipated within the two chief creation verses of the Bible.

Pi or Π = 3.1416

The number Pi is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. It is represented by the decimal 3.1416.

“Yeah, we’re aware of that, but what does that have to do with the Bible?”

Good question.

The chief creation verse of the Old Testament is Genesis 1:1

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

The two main languages of the Bible are Hebrew (Old Testament) and Greek, (New Testament). Both of these languages have a numerical equivalent for each letter of the alphabet. Therefore, not only do Hebrew and Greek letters have a numerical value but words in Hebrew and Greek, also have a numerical product.

With that said, Genesis 1:1 is made up of 7 Hebrew Words and 28 Hebrew Letters.

That doesn’t appear to mean much until, upon closer examination, we discover that, if you multiply the number of letters by the product of the letters and then divide them by the number of words times the the product of the words…

**you get Pi or 3.1416 to the fourth decimal place!**

*e* is a dimensionless constant used all over advanced mathematics, most commonly defined as the limit of the expression (1+1/n)^{n
}

This limiting value is approximately 2.7182818285. The number *e *forms the base of natural logarithms and appears constantly in the Theory of Probability. *e *is also found in wave mechanics, electrical theory and distribution of prime numbers.

The second most important creation verse comes to us from the New Testament, namely, John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Again, the mathematics of what we find hidden beneath the text is equally startling!

If you take the number of letters times the product of the letters and divide them by the number of words times the product of the words…

**you get e or 2.7183 to the fourth decimal place!**

Now, a person can be in denial that God is the inspiration behind this, but the fact remains that the computations of the universe’s only two dimensionless constants are tabulated to four decimal places amid the Bible’s two chief creation passages.

When scientists listen in space for signs or signals of intelligent life, they are listening for non-randomness. The opposite of randomness would be something that can be anticipated or has patterns or periodicity; in a word, information.

Therefore, since this is a level of accuracy that defies randomness, we are forced to face that we are staring at information, not randomness.

The only logical explanation is that this was placed here the only way possible — by divine inspiration from the living God, in the original languages, anticipating our discovery of it and our excuses against belief.

said:Whilst this can seem spooky and significant at first, you have to remember that the data has to be manipulated quite a fare bit to get to these conclusions. After all, there are a plethora of different mathematical manipulations you could do on the data, why is this one significant? Why not divide the number by the product, or add them, or multiple half the sentence by the other etc….there are probably thousands of different equations you could do. The fact that a handful of them turn up something significant isn’t that special.

And that’s ignoring the fact that there isn’t anything inherently significant about these results. I doubt that ahead of time anyone could’ve said “I will do this equation and the answer will be pi” You’re just getting what is essentially a list of random numbers and comparing them to numbers found elsewhere, trying to make a link. Given how common numbers are in our culture, I’d be more surprised if you weren’t able to make a link between one result and any of the millions of numbers we use in our lives. Just go onto google and search a random number. Whatever you pick there will be at least one result.

What we really have is people doing essentially random equations on a set of numbers and coming up with essentially random results. The fact that one of these random results is also used in another context is nothing special.4

(and this is, of course, forgetting the fact that the Bible isn’t actually predicting pi. There’s 17 zeroes after the 3.1416 that are being ignored)

(also, the image link for e in the bible isn’t working, but I’ll trust you’re not lying about it).

humanmanipulation to reach this conclusion, thus doesn’t seem to contain much evidence ofdivineintervention.R. K. Sepetjian

said:Adam, the fact that you cannot see design, intelligence or information in pi and e, to the tremendously accurate 4th decimal place, underpinning these texts, by use of the same formula, just goes to prove that believing in God is not about evidence. The Bible says this over and over again. I had hoped you’d be intrigued enough to pick the Book up yourself despite your skepticism. If so, I’d begin in John.

said:I did used to have a little Gideons Bible I read back when I was a believer. I did keep it around and read bits I was challenged to by Christians. These readings weren’t as earthshaking as they were promised, but I read them whenever asked none the less partly as a courtesy and partly due to curiosity.

However, it seems I’ve lost that now. If I find it somewhere I will have a read of John and tell you what I think.
