"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

And here's a bonus for those who insist on the literal truth of the Bible in all things - note that in Kings 7:23, the Good Book implies that pi is exactly 3:
And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other [diameter]: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about [circumference].
I'm sorry, but not even God Himself can decree the value of pi to be three.
