Albert Einsten was born this month, on March 14, 1879.
The day is also celebrated as “Pi Day” (i.e., the date 3/14 = the numerical constant 3.14…) This year is the Pi Day of the century … 3/14/15 = 3.1514.
Also this month, on March 15, is Hypatia Day, on which some humanists and Pagans honor the female philosopher, astronomer and mathematician who was martyred in the 5th c. CE. In honor of Einstein and Hypatia (and pi) our theme for the month of March will be the Cosmos.
How have the disciplines of astronomy and mathematics impacted your religiosity? What role do stars and prime numbers play in your spirituality?
