"Since the Egyptian Royal Cubit was not a precise measure there is no way to determine an EXACT measuremnt no matter what you say. Even laser measurements are not exact TR and every measurement has a degree of uncertainty."
I was responding to a quote from someone who thought I couldn't make up my mind on how long it was, and I was trying to convey the idea that Ron measured it (Sorry, should I say SAID he measured it) to the closest possible degree. I don't believe he was ever quoted with all of the exactly's in there, they were to make a point that wouldn't have gotten across to Ringo any other way.
I know. Ive tried.
And please excuse me, Ringo, that's just my experience with you so far.
I'm sure that my way of putting things mixes things up. I'm sorry.

"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."
Everything I said was accurate. It is 300 cubits long.
If you want to, you can do the math, and figure out exactly how many feet that is. All I know offhand is that 300 cubits equals around 515 feet.
I really do have trouble expressing my thoughts sometimes, so please forgive me.
