I'm sorry, that's not true. I enjoy it.
Lets see, Day = 365??? Well, it takes the planet 365.25 days to go around the sun. That day equals 365 anyways has no importance. The people knew that it took 365 sun rises for the seasons to come round.
The meaning of month isn't too interesting. Seeing the word month comes from MOON! Of course the number would be 12!!! There are 12 full moons every year. So that miracle is quashed.
AS for water that covers the planet? Close but no cigar or miracle. About 70.8% of the earth's surface is covered by water. Sure you could start rounding numbers, but thats not what miracles are all about.
