What are the odds? Using the same methodology, π and e are calculated to five significant figures from the first verses in the Books of Genesis and John respectively. The decimal system has ten digits, so the probability of matching a single digit is 1/10, except the first digit which can't be zero. Extrapolating, the probability of matching five digits becomes 1/9 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10, or 1/90,000 (one chance in ninety thousand). The probability of calculating π and e from these two "In the beginning" verses, to five significant figures and using the same methodology, therefore becomes 1/900,000 x 1/90,000 or one in 8.1 billion! The likelihood of this being purely random chance therefore becomes almost ridiculous.
