USING SECONDS, MINUTES AND DEGREES FOR CUBITS

Reality (Approx.):

Circumference of the earth (equatorial) = 24902 miles

Abstractions Used by Ancients (Scale):

Meso Basket Boat (1 / 144000)

Noah’s Ark (1 / 129600)

Great Pyramid of Giza  (1 / 86400)

Perimeters of the base:

Meso boat (square) = 120 cubits x 4 = 480 cubits

The Ark (rectangular) = 300 + 50 + 300 + 50 = 700 cubits

Two sides of the socle (square base of Great Pyramid) = 885.87 cubits

Meso boat = 480 x 108000 = 51840000 cubits

The Ark     = 700 x 129600 = 90720000 cubits

Great P.  = 885.87 x  86400 = 76539168 cubits

Conversions (Estimates):

Great Cubit     = .759375 meters

Hebrew Cubit = .443918 meters

Pyramid Cubit = .5236 meters

1 meter = 3.2808 feet

5280 ft = 1 mile

Meso boat = 51840000 x .759375 = 39366000 meters = 129151973 ft = 24461 miles (under)

The Ark = 90720000 x .443918 = 40272241 meters = 132125168 ft = 25024 miles (over)

Great P. = 76539168 x .5236 = 40075908.3648 meters = 131481040 ft = 24902 miles (very close)

Circle Math:

Meso      40 cubits = 1 second, 12 secs. = 480 cubits

Hebrew  70 cubits = 1 second, 10 secs. = 700 cubits

60 secs = 1 min

Hebrew  700 x 6 = 4200 cubits

Meso      480 x 5 = 2400 cubits

60 mins = 1 degree

Hebrew 4200 x 60 = 252000 cubits

Meso     2400 x 60 = 144000 cubits

360 degs = circumference of circle

Hebrew  252000 x 360 = 90720000 cubits

Meso      144000 x 360 = 51840000 cubits

Meso cubit     = .759375 meter

Hebrew cubit = .443918 meter

90720000 x .443918 = 40272241 m. (over)

51840000 x .759375 = 39366000 m. (under)

76539168 x .5236 = 40075908.3648 m.
