I approve of all of these.

In general, if someone is making a remarkable claim, it's not up to me to tell them what evidence they should provide. It's up to them to make their most persuasive case. And God only knows what that would be.

One I read about awhile back I really liked. To describe the relationship between the diameter and circumference of a circle with a diameter equal to the universe, comprised of hydrogen atoms, pi only needs to extend out to something like 32 digits.

If you're God, round pi off to 32 digits such that any future calculation of pi is a rational number.

Do that, and I'm your huckleberry.
