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.
