This March 14, 2015 is a woo-woo day that occurs only once a century. And just like the Hebrews do, our Flying Spaghetti Monster arbitrarily assigns the value 323 to A and 846 to M.


Thus what the FSM gives us at the 9th hour, 26th min and 53.58979th sec in the morning (AM) of March 14 is:


3.14159265358979323846; our friend Pi rounded to the nearest 10-20


Now compare that accuracy to anything you can twist out of scripture. The FSM wins hands down in woo-woo accuracy.

WTF now? Who you going to “believe”: your lying eyes or the Flying Spaghetti Monster?  :)

Where do you get that the Hebrews assign A and M those values?

Not those numbers specifically, just numbers.


Instead of "just like Hebrews do", think "just like the Hebrews assign numbers to letters"


The FSM assigns those numbers to A and M, not the Hebrews.

"creationism" ... 2000+ years worth of ABYSMAL FAILURE ... and proud of it.

In Hebrew, every letter has a numerical value. The Flying Spaghetti Monster also arbitrarily assigns numerical values to letters; they're just different values than what Hebrews assign. Why are they different? It just is. Ask the Flying Spaghetti Monster why? 


But that doesn't affect the legitimacy of the calculation and its uncanny precision.

Beautifully done!  I may have to become a pastafarian.

So the FSM is less rational than a bronze age people.  The ancient Hebrews didn't "assign numbers to letters", they used their alphabet for numerals -- there wasn't anything arbitrary about it.  So whoever devised this bit of inanity is engaging in juvenile "humor" based on ignorance, or at least on assuming the audience is ignorant.

There's no calculation or precision involved, just the same mindset that finds images of the Virgin Mary on tortillas.  It's like when a guy I knew in college saw a license plate with a 666 on it and took it as proof that the Antichrist has already been born.


For the comparison to even begin to approach validity, the FSM would have to have an alphabet where A and M appeared in it in those places, and would have to use those letters for doing math.

Why is it that so many atheists share in the delight that YECers take in acting as though ignorance makes them superior?


The value of pi appearing in Genesis 1 using gematria is at least astounding, because the people who wrote that text didn't know pi to the accuracy shown, and no one sat down and arbitrarily assigned values to the alphabet to achieve the outcome.


This pseudo-intellectual playing with numbers actually makes the notion of "kinds" the YECers hold look respectable.

Exactly.


Sort of the same way everyone sees the creationists.


This is a comment about creationists ... not the Hebrew language.

Maybe I'm remembering the genesis thing wrong, but I thought it included a number of arbitrary mathematical manipulations (add these, then multiply by that, the separate this into two parts and multiply them sorts of things) and some very handy rounding  


If my memory is  correct, then with sufficient patience you could use the same mathematical manipulations to find any number you want in genesis.
