Sure, atheists can DO math just as well as Christians.

And atheists can see the material beauty and majesty of math.

But Christian Math is just...more...ineffable.

I mean, without God, the numbers just add up...but WITH God...the numbers ADD UP.

But this still means Pi equals 3. Right?

And of course sometimes 1=3 and 3=1.

No, no. I was referring to I Kings 7:23,

Now he made the sea of cast metal ten cubits from brim to brim, circular in form, and its height was five cubits, and thirty cubits in circumference.

Since we know C = πD, That means that the ratio of circumference to diameter is 3:1. We plug in the numbers: C = 30, D=10 that means, 30 = π10 or π=3.

QED. Pi equals 3! Philistine!

Oooh! I just loved this one: Studying Geometry will "...allow the students to understand the absolute consistency of God..."

Consistency? That's a hoot.

Of course, this IS a Christian high school and they can setup their agenda however they wish. Although I really don't understand why math just can't be - well - math.
