π and e are in the Bible

by Javier Diez

 

π and e, the two most important constants in modern mathematics, are encoded in two initial verses of the Bible. In Genesis 1:1, the first verse of the Old Testament, π can be found with a level of precision that was 1000 years ahead the mathematical discoveries of the world. And in John 1:1, the first verse of the gospel of Saint John, the author encoded the value of e some 1500 years before the human kind discovered its existence and importance. We'll see in this article how both constants are encoded in those verses, how the probability for this to happen is less than one in billions, and why it could not be a coincidence.
