Interesting that the measurement is approximate in feet, but exact in cubits.
Of course, since cubits can vary over a fairly wide range, the conversion from feet can not be "EXACT". It seems like you are trying very hard to make the measurement fit the Biblical ark.

... I guess they hadn't invented the feet yet, so it's impossible to figure it would be exactly an even number in feet.
You miss my point. It has nothing to do with being an "even number".
In your own words, the original measurement was approximate. There is no way to make it "exact" by changing the units. The uncertainty remains the same, regardless of the units. (By the way, what was the uncertainty?)
It just makes you sound very unscientific.

You're not paying attention. Here's what you said in Message 264:

"Approximately" 515 feet can not be "exactly" 300 cubits. Is the measurement approximate or exact? It can not be both. I'm trying to tell you that your language is sloppy, not necessarily that your point is wrong.
Of course, you believe that Ron Wyatt was a liar....
Where did I say anything about Ron Wyatt? I'm talking about your imprecise use of language. I'm trying to tell you that your language is sloppy, not necessarily that your point is wrong.
Please tell me if you understand what's been said so far.
Don't worry about my level of understanding until you can figure out the difference between "approximate" and "exact".
