What if it did? That doesn't change how the circumference of a circle is calculated.

IIRC, my personal cubit is 20 inches. If the sides of the "bowl" were merely as think as my personal hand width, and the measurement mentioned in the Holy Bible was taken from the insides of the bowl (i.e. metal pool), I come up with 3.1416 value for pi, which is not enough to be a problem for my faith.
Please, do share your math.
