Archbishop Romeo Buonconti, Chairman of the Pontifical Council for Science, addressed an open letter to the heads of world academies of science, urging scientists to abandon further calculations of the number Pi. Currently known about 3.5 trillion. signs of this number after the comma. The outrage of the Vatican was caused by the fact that starting from the position 3402030148812 the number Pi contains thirteen consecutive digits of six. According to the archbishop, further calculations can lead to the beginning of the Apocalypse.
Ecologists have joined the protest of the clergy, indicating that the consumption of electricity by calculating the number of Pi exceeds the consumption of countries such as Vietnam. Most Orthodox churches refused to support the Vatican’s statement, but their representatives stated that similar occult practices had been banned in Orthodox countries for a long time, and Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that he did not believe in any number of Pi and considered it a product of degradation of Western civilization.
“There is no mention of Pi in the Bible, so I don’t understand the interest that scholars all over the world have for it. For a true Catholic, there should be no question of the relationship of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. If such questions arise, it is necessary, first of all, to go to church and take communion, and if it does not help, go to live in a monastery for a couple of months. We should follow the example of such countries as Saudi Arabia and Iran, where serious measures were taken to calculate Pi and other occult rites, ”said Archbishop Buonconti.
