Talk:Islam and Miracles
Miracle of Golden ratio for Ka'ba
Several Islamic propagandists are circulating a cleverly presented claim that the distance from North and South poles to Ka'ba forms the golden ratio of 1.618.
But as we see that,
Coordinates of Ka'ba : 21.4225° N, 39.8261° E
Degrees from North pole : 90 - 21.4225 = 68.5775
Degrees from South pole : 90 + 21.4225 = 111.4225
Ratio : 111.4225/68.5775 = 1.6247675987.
The origin of the hoax seems to be Turkey with a well-funded documentary circulating throughout the Youtube site.
