Happy Super Pi Day

We’re living a historical day people! The super Pi day! I’m celebrating with pie and…studying for an upcoming exam. :/
Oh, and I’ll write an entry in my journal about this day too.

So in honor of this very mathematical day, check out these fun blog posts!

Answers in Genesis: Happy Pi Day! How Does Math Confirm the Bible?

Celebrate Einstein’s Birthday with Pi on 3.14.15

Physics and mathematics are only possible because we live in a rational universe. If random naturalistic evolution were true, then… (Continue reading at Answers in Genesis).

Institute for Creation Research: Evolutionary Math

Most people have heard of “evolutionary biology.” But the term “evolution” is often applied in a broader sense (gradual, naturalistic changes over long ages) to other fields of study. Some people study geology or astronomy from an evolutionary perspective. But has anyone ever studied “evolutionary mathematics”? (Continue reading at Institute for Creation Research).

And here’s some interesting information about Pi in this short TedEd video:

What are you doing on Pi day?

  1. Happy Pi Day! 🙂
    For a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day/Pi Day at our Tuesday science classes, I’m going to recite pi to the 17th digit. Requested by the teacher – lol … and we’ll probably have a pie or two as well.

    And, being nerdy, I’ve been looking forward to this for the past few months!
    I think you’d like this post from ICR as well… http://www.icr.org/article/evolutionary-math/

    God bless!

    1. Happy Pi day to you as well! Ooo, that sounds like such fun! I think we’ll be making Irish Soda bread for St. Patrick’s Day, although my family and I don’t actually celebrate that day, but since we now have a good Irish Soda bread recipe, it’s an excuse to make it.

      Thanks for sharing the ICR article! I should add it into the post.

      Blessings!

  2. Here’s quite a valid anti-pi day rant…….

    haha, I got just as excited about pi day as everyone else, I just found this video quite interesting.
    She also has some other cool maths videos on her channel.

    Anyway, nice post!! some of those videos you posted are really interesting. As Christians we shouldn’t be afraid of maths and science, as some seem to be, but rather we should use it to confirm and prove what we already know to be true.

    Also, Happy St. Patrick’s Day 🙂

    1. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you too Anna! Thank for the comment! I agree, as Christians we should be the first to embrace sciences and math because they really confirm the Bible!

      The anti-pi video was quite interesting, and made me remember that when my family and I were missionaries, other countries had different date formats (day-month-year) than what we use in the U.S. (month-day-year). So Pi day would actually not be celebrated in March like she said. Yet (maybe I misunderstood) she seemed to say that years, months and dates are pretty much arbitrary, but they’re based on astronomical constants, and although she seemed to imply that the Christian calendar is just any other arbitrary system, I think it’s the most logical.
      What did you think about what she said?
