jesus and the 153 fish

    The story of jesus' friends catching 153 fish is a story about the vesica pisces. The vesica pisces is two circles that touch each other at their centers, creating a shape in the middle that resembles a fish.

    When you put a cross in the middle of the fish, the ratio of the lines is 265:153. This equates to the square root of three, or 1.73.

    The square root of 153 is 12.369, also the number of full moons in one year. The vesica pisces also resembles all of the phases of the moon.

    What is God trying to tell us with geometry, parables,and numbers?

      I suppose...he is trying to tell you nothing. The size of the cross would determine the ratio. I don't think a cross has a pre determined difference in length between the two lines.

      As to the pyramids, I might wonder what was on the Egyptian's minds when they designed it. I want aware that God built it.

      That He needs help doing his math homework?

    Another interesting tidbit about 153:

    The Great Pyramid would be 481 feet tall if the capstone were there. The Grand Gallery is 153 ft long. Divide 481 by 153, and you get 3.14, Pi.

      481/153=3.1437908496732026143790849673203

      pi=3.1415926535897932384626433832795

      By the third decimal the two numbers are already diverging; I would have expected God to be much more precise in His work.  Conclusion; a meaningless coincidence, no different than millions of others.

        God also states that the world has corners, and he never once mentions that North and South America exist. God sucks at geometry, too.

        Aww come on Wilderness. Nobody said God made the pyramids and you have to admit that the Egyptians got pretty close to Pi using only a measuring stick.

          Dollars to doughnuts the Egyptians were closer than 2 decimals.  Putting it into practice, however, is another matter - especially with multi-ton blocks of stone.

          You're right though - I should have caught that that statement was praise for God's enemies, not his own work.

    It is not important to waste time with silly riddles.
    What is important is to learn to develop a relationship with Jehovah and then to serve Him.
    May Jehovah open your eyes to Him.

      Silly riddles are fun. Don't you want some fun in life?
