Lamentations on PI

1 King 7v23 has PI=3
This pretty much sums up the limited standard of thought of the scriptures.
“He made a Sea of cast metal, circular in shape, measuring ten cubits from rim to rim and five cubits high. It took a line of thirty cubits to measure round it”
Repeated again in 2 Chronicles 4v2
This is not the authorship of a creator of a finely tuned universe.
This is the authorship of a primate with a slightly bigger brain than the other great apes
Lamentations 1v4 says the priests of Zion groan but as far as I know no author in the Bible moans about the error of making PI=3. No criticism from Jesus, no correction.
Isaiah 40v22,”He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth”, he pulls the chain and his people receive the turd of god.
Isaiah 40v14,”Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him and who taught him the right way?” Well they should be sacked, whoever it was cause PI=3 ain’t close enough.

Re Isaiah 40v12,”with the breadth of his hands marked off the heavens”
If god’s hands were big enough to be useful for measuring the heavens, and yet god was close enough for the Earth to appear to him as a circle rather than a point of light then we should be able to see these super massive hands. The hands of god should block out the stars beyond, so from this I deduce that the hand’s of god are not only invisible but also see through / transparent.
Isaiah 40v27, “Why do you complain O Israel,”My way is hidden from the Lord”
It would have been a decent excuse that God was so far away that the Earth could not be seen due to the glare of the sun: like how astronomers have trouble finding exoplanets around other stars. Thus God didn’t know what was happening on Earth otherwise he would have prevented suffering.
If god was close enough then the Earth should have appeared as a three dimensional sphere.
Maybe it is just that god is merely an idol that can be nailed down (Isaiah 41v7)
The author’s idea of the size of the Earth was limited to the Middle East. Isaiah 41v8-9,”But you, O Israel, my servant Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend, I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners i called you” A circle with corners whose circumference divided by diameter = 3 ?
Obviously babble.
