No, never said that, but they most certainly may have known its value. I have no way of knowing one way or another.

Essentially, it is an old wives tale type of thing to claim that the Holy Bible states the value of pi is 3. Practically 100% of the time 1 Kings, chap 7, verse 26 is never mentioned when such a claim is made to Christians. My post with the illustration addressed -am's- false implication.
I'm going back over the thread as i have been accused by people, not even members at GT until this year, that I am skipping posts. I'll be going back and recapping for a while I would guess. Bear with me...
